Creative Communicators

Creative Communicators was born when four students decided to merge their passion and expertise for an academic project: "Life can be touching" campaign.

Inspired by the belief that creative excellence, cultural awareness and technical knowledge make the right mix for a cutting-edge communication, their mission for this project was to target distinction in delivering their message internationally.

Their efforts are convergent to one point: the success of "Life can be touching" by raising awareness about the signs of testicular cancer.
