POLITICS AND SOCIETY: THE PRIMARY METIER OF ORCA AFFAIRS

ORCA Affairs applies curiosity, vision, responsibility, initiative, and its own particular personality in developing, managing, executing and assessing communications of sensitive topics related to politics and society for public institutions, interest groups, and corporations.

ORCA Affairs is always looking for the right solution, whether singular or 360°, and will convince you with our competence, creativity, performance, and integrity.

With the tremendous changes in the media and societal landscapes, ORCA Affairs won’t lose its way as it sorts through the various options, but instead will provide orientation for you and your stakeholders.

As an independent, owner-managed agency, part of the ORCA Group, ORCA Affairs attaches particular importance to trustworthy and stable relationships with customers, employees, and partners.

As needed, ORCA Affairs will assemble a team of specialists from across the ORCA Group to offer all of our services from a single source. Even so, we do it differently, in a coordinated, collegial, inspired, and mutually enriching way. The ORCA Way. Together, not least with the client.

WE ARE THE ORCAS IN BERLIN AND MUNICH

Our team represents a healthy mix of generations, expertise, and perspectives gained from experience. The ORCAs have been political professionals, editors, campaign experts, online specialists, and project managers. Meet our client-focused consultants:

NEW WEBSITE FOR “HANDMADE IN GERMANY”

We have recently given the web presence of the Initiative Deutsche Manufakturen (http://www.handmade-in-germany.org/) a new look. Clearly structured with a state-of-the-art design, this is a site where you can linger, be enchanted by the world of handcrafted goods, and browse the latest news with pleasure. Visit the website: http://handmade-in-germany.org…

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

What does it actually mean to be a full-service agency? Is it really possible to do everything? As far as politics and communication are concerned, we have accumulated lots of experience and many contacts over the years and we use them to provide strong support to our clients. What follows is a compact overview of what we can offer.

STRATEGIC
AND POLITICAL
CONSULTANCY
Strategie- <br>und Politikberatung

Strategie-
und Politikberatung

Always up-to-date with the latest relevant political and social developments, our team provides comprehensive advice and support to help you process the many complex and changing trends and their implications and evaluate and develop the communicative steps required. We know the relevant opinion leaders and decision makers and we use this knowledge as the basis for our recommendations and plans for suitable public relations or communications programmes or campaigns.

EDITING
AND PUBLISHING
Redaktion <br>und Publikationen

Redaktion
und Publikationen

Whether you need a small presentation on a single topic or a comprehensive prospectus, whether you need it in print, video, or as a programme, we will handle the concept, design, text, and production as well as find the best distribution channels.

 

 

Close
PRESS
AND MEDIA WORK
Presse- <br>und Medienarbeit
Close
ONLINE
AND SOCIAL NETWORKS
Online <br>und soziale Netze

Online
und soziale Netze

We also provide support in the virtual realm, including concepts, editing, design, and programming. We find out how to identify your target groups online and address them with original ideas, good stories, and high technical competence that grabs their attention.

 

 

Close
MONITORING
AND ISSUE MANAGEMENT
Monitoring und <br>Themenmanagement

Monitoring und
Themenmanagement

We monitor the relevant public and less public sources and systematically analyse the developments in politics, public affairs, and the market. We also conduct detailed investigations of political, social and economic conditions at both the micro- and macro-levels to deliver clear, accurate, and comprehensible analyses and provide comprehensive insights into areas important to your activities.

 

 

Close
CRISIS COMMUNICATION
Krisenkommunikation

Krisenkommunikation

The increasing complexity of the global, digitised flow of information, the increased pressure on leadership for legitimation, and the dynamics of the media system have heightened organisations’ and companies’ need for orientation and early detection of risks and issues. In issue management and crisis communication, we monitor and analyse your environment to identify potential hotspots and prepare strategic responses for various eventualities. Please understand that we do not make direct references when engaging in crisis communication as this is sensitive information for our clients.

GRAPHIC DESIGN
AND LAYOUT
Graphikdesign <br>und Layout

Graphikdesign
und Layout

Communication demands design. Graphics and design sell content and ORCA Affairs develops these in close coordination between our consulting and creative teams.

 

 

Close
DIALOGUE AND
PARTICIPATION
PROCESSES
Dialog- und <br>Partizipationsprozesse

Dialog- und
Partizipationsprozesse

The inclusion of individual opinion leaders, certain groups, or all citizens in (political) decision-making processes can improve the quality and legitimacy of these decisions. We determine at which points such participation processes are meaningful and promising and then plan and implement them, from round tables to conferences or even online debates.

 

 

Close
ANIMATION
AND MOTION GRAPHICS
Bewegtbild <br>und Motion Graphics

Bewegtbild
und Motion Graphics

Leaving behind the parameters of traditional graphic design, the ORCA Motion Graphics Team is clearly focused on providing innovative and bold solutions to meet the high demands of motion design. Motion graphics design is one of the most exciting new forms of digital expression and is at the intersection of graphics, design, photography, film, music, architecture, and computer programming. Our international motion graphics team translates the existing design expressions into the language of digital media and constantly pushes the limits in their design of moving content, whether it’s video, editing, animation, sound design, motion graphics, staged rooms, 3-D design, or many other aspects.

BECOME AN ORCA

We at ORCA Affairs embody our mutual expectations, beginning with competence and professionalism. Self-initiative, entrepreneurial thinking, and the willingness to take responsibility are part and parcel of it.

Orcas learn from their own mistakes and those of others. An Orca is always on the lookout for new and better things. Being able to look outside the box is required and promoted across disciplines and also internationally.

A peaceful coexistence is particularly important to us. Because we are better together.
