PASSION FOR IDEAS
We're a creative company, so this might seem obvious. But the right idea can change everything. It can change attitudes, change lives and change culture. And, in today’s world, there are certain kinds of idea that do this better than others.
IDEAS THAT MOVE
The right idea will move seamlessly across channels. From online to offline. From above the line to below the line. From instore to out of home. It will move brands, move products and, most importantly, move people. The right idea will move everything forward.
Ideas that move don’t just need seamless communications. They need a seamless communications company. Over 40 years, we’ve grown with clients to become as diverse as their needs. So, being integrated comes naturally. But it took evolution and determination.
We are a Korean company and Tuhon is a Korean word. It's not easy to translate, but it means achieving the impossible, against all odds. This attitude took Korea from being one of the poorest countries to the world’s 11th largest economy today. You could say it translates to our relentless drive to succeed.
