What’s in the name?
With a sister company called Tree, which deals in traditional advertising, we wanted a name which described us best – a bunch of creative people walking out of the well of traditional advertising to explore new opportunities in the digital world.
What we do?
FWO specialized in community management, building e-commerce platforms, SEO, UI/UX development, web development, and mobile applications.
Why we do it?
The new age medium of advertising and branding is here, so why should we be anywhere else?
The digital evolution of advertising provides a new and promising creative platform for agencies and our clients. In keeping with the times, we need to walk hand in glove with this new era or else, get left behind.
How we evolve?
By running a “boot camp”, our frogs are constantly on the alert and are quick to find the latest trends that we adapt to our brands and create new waves. This is our mantra to stay ahead of the game while preparing for the future of our brands.
Social responsibility in social media
When it comes to the Social Media platform, transparency is king. With maximum visibility and exposure, we need to be brand guardians to ensure the brand image of our clients is always seen in a positive light.
Need of the hour
A dynamic space with lack of a clear definition of rules proves to be a challenge to grow in, and yet, it simultaneously provides us with the opportunity to showcase our creativity with no restrictions.
We learned the hard way
Everything we do in this space is so new that even we don’t know what we’re getting into half the time. So what do we do when we fall? We pick up the pieces and reassemble them differently till we get it right.
Did we just share that?
Dressing up as the brand’s mascot to cover for a client’s event agency failure. The FWO team had tonnes of fun entertaining the group without knowing who was behind the mask.
They work with us
Industry as we foresee
A nascent industry in India, it is one that is showing great promise for the future. As the social media evolution gains momentum, so will the industry.
A day without Internet
For us, it’s a working holiday.
Lastly, are you hiring?
We are always looking for talented creative people with creative juices which can be mixed with technology and great ideas!
