At the Esra Lemmens Agency, we believe that, mainly due to the relatively high labor intensity of design, the level of work involved, and also because of its experimental mindset, design contributes to a large extent to high-quality, knowledge-intensive jobs. Reality shows that design plays an increasingly important role in the constantly evolving service economy and in order to be relevant to this market the development of any great concepts stands on the added substance to design itself and the implementation of humanity.
Under the sharp artistic approach and future minded guidance of Esra Lemmens herself, the Esra Lemmens Agency has developed custom strategies that bring clarity and definition to the designers work; it helps convey a specific message to a particular group of people, whether that is a conceptual or a commercial environment.
At the Esra Lemmens Agency we combine Art and Design principles to evoke a cultural and emotional reaction, it connects to what you’re seeing and experiencing. Together with Designers, Artist and cultural organizations we work hand-in-hand to deliver that point, emotionally and physically. We build towards that important, yet sometimes intangible emotion that empowers the artist’s work.
