Company Description

We’re a Swedish creative agency based in Shanghai. We started TOMORROW with a simple but compelling question: where do you want to be tomorrow?

That’s why create brands (strategy and design) and campaigns (strategy, concept and production) that help our clients get to where they want to be tomorrow.

We create work that is remembered beyond today for Swedish vodka brand Absolut (Pernod Ricard), American chocolate brand Hershey’s, Chinese cinema brand Jinyi, Canadian theatre technology brand IMAX, Italian spirits brand Campari, and premium seafood brand Royal Greenland from... well, you can guess.

Our roots are Swedish, and so is our mother company: Intellecta. A stock market listed communications group founded in 1981 in Stockholm employing over 500 people worldwide. We opened our Shanghai office in 2010.

We’re a growing team of 18 driven individuals on a journey to build the most progressive creative agency in Shanghai.

Collaboration is our signature way of working, internally and with our clients. Our clients love working with us because we’re friendly, consistently deliver beyond their expectations and include them in the process, at least that’s what they’ve told us.

Job satisfaction almost guaranteed
Working for a Swedish company is a bit different (Baidu: “Work like a Swede”) but research has shown that it’s usually for the better. 91.6% of employees working at a Swedish company in China are likely to recommend working for a Swedish company to someone else. Swedish companies in China also claim comparatively high satisfaction rates (71%), with the average employment time standing at 5.09 years.
