You thought
you were a part,
small, but in you
there is a universe,
the greatest.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Raise your words,
not voice.
It is rain that
grows flowers,
not thunder.

Rumi

One who thinks
and reflects
develops his
foresight and vision.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

There is
a candle
in your heart,
ready to be kindled.
there is a void
in your soul,
ready to be filled.
You feel it,
don't you?

Rumi

Body is purified
by water.
Ego by tears.
Intellect is purified
by knowledge.
And soul
is purified
with love.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

When you
do things
from your soul,
you feel a river
moving in you,
a joy.

Rumi

Be like a flower
that gives its
fragrance even
to the hand
that crushed it.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

If you are
irritated by
every rub,
how will
your mirror
be polished?

Rumi

Beautiful people
are not always good,
but good people
are always beautiful.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Respond to
every call
that excites
your spirit.

Rumi

Courtesy costs
nothing, but
buys everything.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

What you seek
is seeking you.

Rumi

Authority, power,
and wealth do not
change a man;
they only
reveal him.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Out beyond
ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing
there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul
lies down
in that grass
the world
is too full
to talk about.

Rumi

The world is darkness;
knowledge is light;
but knowledge;
without truth
is a mere shadow.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Your task
is not to
seek for love,
but merely
to seek
and find
all the barriers
within yourself
that you
have built
against it.

Rumi

Do not be too hard,
lest you be broken;
do not be too soft,
lest you be squeezed.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

Let the beauty
you love
be what
you do.

Rumi

People are of two types,
they are either your
brothers in faith or
your equals in humanity.

Ali Ibn Abi Talib

As you start
to walk out
on the way,
the way appears.

Rumi

Where do you want to go
from where you are today?

This is the question we ask you.

With your answers, we will discover emotions
and through this, we explore the motion.

For every motion needs a direction.

From here, the creative process begins.

From understanding your brand and marketing objectives to
communicating ideas to your market.

Communication made from that point onwards will help determine your future.
Communication is about your philosophies and aspirations turned into connections.
It is powerful.
It is soulful.
It is human.

These ideas and visions are designed with a single purpose—
To build brand conciousness for each product through the various forms of
communication that is tailored specifically for your needs, today and into the future.

That is our goal and we believe it is yours too.

To achieve this, we will work closely with you throughout the whole process,
exchanging and exploring art, design and creative directions to
translate strategies into successful endeavours.

As visionaries, we ask you again
Where do you want to go
from where you are today?

We prefer not to showcase our works online.

We believe in a more traditional, person-to-person approach—
meet face to face to present our body of work,
leading towards a better understanding of
what is needed and the goals we can achieve together.

If time or location is a constraint, we can communicate online,
subsequently emailing our portfolio upon request.

Truthfully though, we would really love to meet you in person.

Our track record speaks of who we are;
what we stand for.

No short term solutions.
No fancy statements.
No trite strategies.

Shout without being brazen.
Scream without being vulgar.
Speak without being dishonest.

We are not overwhelmed by competition,
nor do we ignore consumer and market trends.

Versatility and vibrancy.
Energy and enthusiasm.
Conceptualisation.

Our main aim is to always impact your market efficiently and honestly.

This is our PILLAR of strength.

PILLAR is located at 3°9’38”N 101°44’9”E
east of the Kuala Lumpur city centre.
Our place of work is situated in
two condominium units within
an old residential building.

We work and play next to a forest reserve.
That in itself is our source of inspiration—
the calm tranquillity that is our creative haven.
