Elmar Hartje would like to be paid on a fee basis. A lack of commercial interest in creative and production services – or even in commission payments, kick-backs and the like – enables him to work exclusively according to your wishes, and assures everybody that nobody has to follow a hidden agenda
Fortunately, the times when advertising had to constantly promise the very best results are over. With markets becoming more transparent, customers learn how to make an informed and balanced decision for themselves – thereby communication can and must offer the highest degree of authenticity
Perfectionism plays a particularly important role at the beginning of each project: detailed planning and looking far ahead at the beginning of each project allow the correct decisions to be made. This is to ensure that any unplanned or unexpected surprises neither make things tough for the creative partner nor exceed the budget
At the end of the day, along with the consistency of all plans and besides the necessary discipline for subsequent implementation, a high level of pragmatism is necessary in order to efficiently establish a sustainable design
Today, almost every product and every service is in international competition and in turn can come into demand on the global market. Elmar Hartje’s work is continuously molded by a global view, which is based on a diverse international experience
For the long-haul
