Hello
there!

We’re Ahooy – an independent creative agency who believe that creating a good brand is good for business.

Buzzwords
be damned.

"Big data", "snackable content", "gamification", too many marketing agencies confuse their clients with annoying, high-sounding marketing buzzwords. But we make a point of keeping the work that we do for you simple. Our job is to help you strengthen the image of your brand so that your marketing efforts will be more effective. That's brand building. See, this stuff isn’t that complicated.

Here’s how we like to work

We're not different.

Okay, maybe we’re a little different.

Branding, marketing, advertising agencies, they all like to tell you how unique and cutting edge they are. You may want to sit down for this, but we’re just people. Regular, friendly people who strongly believe that strong brands grow business. After all, isn’t that what you’re hoping we’ll do for you, build your business?

Think growth. Even global growth.

We know there are many great businesses out there with big goals and also businesses who just don’t know how great they could be. We work with you to help you realise your potential and reach those big crazy goals.

Our brand-building process

Many of our clients have a global presence and we have professionals here in Finland and in the U.S. to help them stay relevant across their different markets. And we don’t just translate the communications we create for our clients. We craft campaigns in both English and Finnish from the very get-go.

Speaking of craft, our work always starts with your work. We discuss your business goals and then together we develop a brand strategy that brings the strengths of your business to life in a fresh and creative way. Why? To help you attract more business, of course.

How do we do it? We’ve got more tools than a handyman, but primarily with branding, design and implementation, which, admittedly, is a fancy word for putting our plan into action.
