Small bites. Massive impact.

Creative Strategy. Strategic Creative.

We see challenges as opportunities, generating imaginative ideas and digging deep to find strategic solutions. We’ve worked on ambitious projects with aggressive deadlines in multiple sectors and industries. Whether building a VR experience for Comedy Central, launching a 360 marketing campaign for the Japanese Tourism Organization, or creating an acclaimed film that gave the world its first glimpse of the new World Trade Center, we’re never formulaic and always respectful of the brand. 

About the name? Piranhas have been around for millions of years and with good reason. They work together intelligently with a collective purpose. Structured like a precise unit, they position themselves based on each one’s strengths. That’s us. With each new project, we assemble the best team to work together and get the job done. Whether it’s the whole crew or only a few key team members, we strategically attack every job with fierce creativity and flexibility.
