COLLiDE builds a new vision for clients and consumers alike. The freedom afforded to us provides the ability to partner at every step of the creative and strategic process from ideation through to execution. Cultural acuity is no longer reserved to music as we are stacked with deep expertise in all mediums and platforms: we can go anywhere you want – even the places you never knew you wanted to.
While Music is an important component of our arsenal, a broader play in contemporary culture opens a deeper range of opportunities for collaboration and cross-pollination. Our engagement in film, art, literature, and culinary spaces provides our clients unprecedented access and integration to emerging talents, trends and innovation.
It would be arrogant to claim we have music in our pocket but when you consider the artists we’ve promoted, booked, sponsored, styled, curated, supported, and printed over the past 18 years, it seems only right to tell you we have music in our pocket.
And just so you believe us, here are a handful of those artists, most of whom we championed before they sold out the Garden: The Black Keys, Mos Def, Macklemore, M83, Radiohead, The XX, The National, TV on the Radio, The Arcade Fire, The Roots.
A passion point for us, sports allows us to tap into a world of ever evolving love and support. Focusing on the relationship of the athlete, brands can connect with fans in unprecedented ways.
Content and Editorial
Much like Music, we made our (former) name and staked our claim on delivering the best storytelling in the industry. COLLiDE maintains this pedigree with a leading editorial team of hand-picked specialists dedicated to the craft of narration and language. In lexicon we trust.
We believe the interpersonal exchange between a brand and its consumer is the most significant form of communication. Beyond print, TV and online, the direct, one-on-one connection achieved in a branded environment supersedes all. With an immediate team of architects, designers, and space planners, COLLiDE holds a proven track record and is equipped to create any experience in any market at any scale.
With over 1.5 billion people spread across Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat, it’s not a question of “should we” invest in Social, but more “how much?” And even then success is anything but guaranteed. More than any media that has preceded, effective connectivity in this space is reliant upon variables including message, timing, platform, and relevance.
In response to this dynamic our Editorial, Strategy, and Digital teams approach Social as a single entity, building campaigns in totality addressing a brand’s needs from end to end, and in relation to its other efforts.
Sooooo, you’ve found the artist you love, they represent your brand perfectly, they resonate with your consumer, and they’re not on the road when you need them most. What’s next?
Alternately, you haven’t been to a show since college. Your daily commute consists of a heavy dose of NPR, and the closest you get to what’s hot is your admins Spotify. Where do you go from here?
In both cases, you let COLLiDE manage your talent needs. Not only do we secure and negotiate talent booking, but we provide expertise in identifying the right talent for you and your audience.
