The link between corporate leaders and architect-designer

   


In setting up Creative Agent Consultants, Françoise Darmon put above all one idea to work : creation is an essential factor in industrial production today, helping adapt to new market developements and contributing to profits.


Creation is present in all phases of a product's life, as regards the product itself (design), the launch (media event), the immediate surrounding (stand, point-of-sale presentation), the extended environnement (shop decoration, licence point) or the product's image linked to the larger brand image.

Creative Agent Consultants' goal is to use the architect-designer's creative thinking to ensure, at all times, the maximum sales value on the one hand, while on the other, adding cultural value to strengthen impact.

Creative Agent Consultants and its artist-designers work together on the basis of individual agreements for each contract.

Creative Agent Consultants does not "represent" artists per se. Its role is to advise businesses on the right solutions for their needs Françoise Darmon draws on her dual knowledge of the worlds of business and creation, helping to establish an open and productive dialogue between the two, leading to future action.
