In 2006, EN GARDE was founded with the vision of removing barriers between digital and classical communication, in order to bring brands and products closer to their customers at every touchpoint. From the foundation until today the company has developed into an innovative and long term sparring partner for their clients.
It is important for EN GARDE to meet their clients at eye level. Their credo is: we use ideas to make people happy. It is the experience of the clients that actually counts. EN GARDE are listeners who want to understand profoundly what they can mutually attain with the customer. Only if this understanding is achieved, EN GARDE do develop targeted, effective and unique ideas. Thus, the ongoing dialogue is an essential feature.
