About

Collateral Creations is a production agency of documentary and artistic content merging expertise and visual creativity.

Our skills

We work with international organisations, public and governmental institutions, NGOs, private companies, and research centres. We collaborate with media houses, cultural organisations, collectives of artists, and universities.

Designing a methodology to deal with dense problematics by proposing a tailor-made and original visual and analytical approach.

Managing projects by developing partnerships, raising funds, taking care of art direction and supervising research work.

Producing hybrid content to assist in strategic decision-making, and to contribute to communication and awareness raising campaigns.

Promoting and distributing our content to targeted or wider audiences with an aim to both defend and inform.

The creative content we produce can help design development strategies, facilitate the decision making process, or serve as training material.

It can be used for communication and advocacy purposes about various issues.

Collateral Creations Community - CCC

We operate as a platform in order to stimulate the collaboration between different professional sectors. We rely upon our networks of contacts that include photographers, film-makers, graphic designers, journalists, academics, experts and decision-makers on a variety of issues.

We generate new ideas and promote them

We help create meaning and make sense of complex issues in order to better communicate, internally and externally. For each subject, we orchestrate the dialogue between artists and experts in order to encourage the emergence of a shared and unique vision, to better understand the nuances of a particular issue at stake.

We produce hybrid contents merging visual creations and analyses

To answer our clients’ and partners’ objectives, we recruit the best specialists and visual artists, selected both for their unique skills and open-minded approach. We then manage the creative process by encouraging dialogue and sharing ideas. Together, we produce creative visual works (photo, video, graphism) and studies (analyses, strategies, consulting). We plan and manage their distribution, whether in parallel or in an integrated fashion, and choose the most appropriate channels.
