THE AGENCY FOR INDUSTRIAL COMMUNICATION

Specializing in Market- and Innovation Leaders within Germany and Beyond

With more than 90 employees in two locations hl-studios is one of the leading agencies in Germany for Industrial Communication. Our photographers, filmmakers, designers, copywriters and event professionals translate products and services into tangible benefits for our cutomers’ target audiences. In doing so, we make a meaningful contribution to the successes of our customers.

Substance in Thinking

To be able to provide answers about the needs of target audiences and the industry as a whole, you have to ask. As your communications partner, we question your current content, causalities and targets until everything is perfectly clear. This makes our messages accurate, credible and distinctive. 

Substance in the Medium

Ability stems from knowledge. Each of our media specialists is accompanied by an agency expert. These experts are involved in meetings from the get-go and work together, making boundaries between media non-existent. This makes our implementation fast, smart and powerful. 

Creativity in Interaction

A "good" idea has to be felt. It must be strong and memorable. In this regard: The firmer your foundation, the taller you can build upon it. Our concepts are based on clear communication- and media strategies. This makes for grounded, powerful ideas.
