Körnelius

We do smarter.

Who we are

We are Körnelius, a master class collective of seasoned professionals with experience in marketing communications and creativity.

We represent decades of local, national, and international success in  telling stories, branding, strategy, design, production and events.

We combine big-agency experience with small-size agility to create winning value.

Why we do what we do

We love using creativity to help people, brands and experiences be the very best expression of themselves.

What we do

We use communications to solve problems.

It starts with a blank page. We identify the problem.
Who are you? Where is the pain point? What do you need to change? Where do you want to go?

That takes serious listening, and understanding
that your needs are unique. No rote solutions allowed.

Then, we use insight and inspiration to guide us to the solution that reflects the best in you.

And you work directly with creatives.

Culture:

it’s what makes us human.

It isn’t just what we do that defines us. It’s how we do it. Developing a workplace culture and sticking to it are more important than ever. We define our culture by a few key words:

Humility
Humor
Respect
Playfulness
Integrity
Curiosity
Transparency
Desire for excellence and constant improvement

If that resonates with you, you’ll enjoy working with us.

Let’s do something cool together.

Let’s talk, and see how we can
inspire one another to do things better.
