We believe image is a form of language.
It is a powerful tool that helps convey powerful thoughts and ideas.

With the power of image, we see the world from a different perspective, and therefore, the dramatic and new is born.
Together, we change reality.

Such as a company with a rich history.
When we portrait its ideal out, a new surprise is made.

Such as a product that is not yet known to the world.
When we visualize its value, people's minds will be moved effortlessly.

Ideas are there from the beginning.

In light, color, sound, words, and time.
When we utilize these elements to convey the innate ideas, new discoveries are encountered.

We are bird and insect.
We are the image branding partner that focuses on drawing out your brand story in a way that moves.
