Music is life
Branthem Creative was birthed out of a great musical partnership between Dene and David where they realised their love of music could be used to achieve so much more.
Here they found that the power of music could be incorporated into something greater that really defined and supported businesses in their brand identity.
Bringing their twenty years of experience to the table, they discovered through team building workshops and providing corporate entertainment, that they could hone these skills into creating great marketing that really captured the message of the brands they worked with. This is where the concept of the ‘Branthem’ was realised and trademarked.
