It's payback time!

Sylvester Hvid & Co. Ltd. is based on an integrated communications philosophy. Since 1899 we have developed and implemented our clients' communication strategies across communication channels and disciplines. We optimize expression and impression, and we integrate communication activities based on a holistic perspective. Being a full-service communications agency we cover all significant communication disciplines - we perform well in all of them separately but our peak performance you'll experience when we get the opportunity to combine all our skills. It's the combination of skills that creates the true competitive advantages in terms of positioning and branding.


We work strategically with creativity and creatively with strategy. Advertising effectiveness is created in the intersection between creativity and strategy - and research is always the starting point.  Research of the competitors, the market, target audiences, products, users - of all factors influencing the creation and execution of a campaign.

We apply our creative and strategic thinking in the research we conduct and in the way we convert data to insights. It's the way data is interpreted and converted to relevant and unique communication strategies, concepts and solutions that creates differentiation and strong market positions. We use our intuition, empathy, business insight, experience and common sense to create advertising that makes a difference.

Our services include:
Marketing research and strategy / Branding / Business-to-Business / Business-to-Consumer / Direct marketing / Dialogue marketing

Public Relations

All companies and organizations contain great stories. Some are great for the company to tell, others are great for the media to get a hand on. And sometimes, they're two sides of the same coin. One thing is certain: The company that succeeds in controlling the stories that are told, also controls the reputation and the brand of the company. 

We work strategically with corporate PR and with product PR as part of advertising campaigns and product launches. We specialize in digital PR and social media and always aim to integrate PR activities with the other elements of the communication strategy. The PR effort support the overall business objectives and enhance the effect of other communication activities. 

Our services include:
Research and PR strategy / Corporate PR / Marketing PR / Digital PR / Social media communication / Issues Management / Crisis communication / Media training

Digital communication

Digital communication is not the future. It's the present. Today, digital media should be an integrated part of any companys' business and marketing strategy. Unfortunately, it's not always like that. There can be different reasons for this, but the result is always the same: lost opportunities, lost profits and the failure to support the strategic business and communications objectives of the company.

Our digital department secures companies the optimal online media presence and an effective use of the digital opportunities. We deliver online strategy, concept, design and implementation. We develop and implement digital solutions anchored in the corporate strategy, and we spend as much time and effort on integrating digital communication activities with the business objectives as we do on concept, design and usability. Which is actually a lot.

Our services include:
Research and digital strategy / Websites (corporate sites, micro sites, web shops) / Media databases / Online campaigns / Optimization / Apps and mobile devices / Search engine optimization (SEO) / Search engine marketing (SEM) / Social media

Graphic design

Every day, we're exposed to new visual expressions and the struggle for attention and buyers is fierce. Great design is a strategic tool, that can create a positive difference. The companys' soul and personality, as expressed in an original visual story-telling, can create recognition, sympathy and differentiation. Because design creates emotions, and emotions, today, is the strongest competitive advantage most companies can dream of. Effective communication speaks to both the mind and the heart.

Those afraid of risk, risk everything. And the company that will not risk standing out through a strong and targeted visual identity will never reach the uniqueness that the brand and success of every company depends on.

Logo design / Visual identity / Annual reports / Corporate and product brochures / Employer and customer magazines / Packaging design / Point-of-sales materials / Exhibitions and trade shows

Internal communication

A companys' communication activities directed at employees is the first step in developing a strong market position. Without a strong support from the companys' own employess, even the most visionary business strategy will fail. And without a close link between corporate values and profile, every communication activity will appear untrustworthy. That's why we develop solutions aimed at gathering the organization around one shared vision, shared goals and shared values. Great communication comes from within.

Our services include:
Employer branding / Recruitment campaigns / Internal communication / Coaching

Healthcare communication

HR Communication

Sylvester Hvid has worked with HR communication since the company was founded in 1899. Not only did we follow the development within HR communication closely - we pioneered the discipline!

In practice, HR communication is about optimizing the relations any organization creates, maintains and terminates with employees and potential employees. More specifically, it's about attracting, maintaining, developing and freeing people according to the match between their competencies and life objectives and the organizational needs and vision.

The HR effort can consist of reward programmes, employer handbook, training and educational programmes, study trips, knowledge sharing, appraisals, satisfaction surveys, office parties etc. - all with little effect without the right communcation.

Our services include:
Job advertisements online and offline / Recruitment campaigns / Internal campaigns and processes / Media counseling and buying / Copywriting, design and layout / Employer magazines for print or web / HR web portals / Employer brand development and implementation 

CSR communication

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) expresses the social responsibility of a company in the broadest sense as measured by the actions taken and the related communication activities carried out. In essence, CSR is about companies conducting their business in a responsible way, taking into account human rights, national and international work ethics, safety, environmental issues, climate etc. In other words, CSR is the term used to describe the business and communication discipline where the company balances the interests of all its' stakeholders (often employees, owners, local community, clients and suppliers).

CSR as a management discipline is relatively new. It's about the way the company conduct business - and how it's communicated to the outside World. The development of CSR is driven by globalization, legislation and ultimately, the consumers. Consequently, CSR now has a direct impact on the corporate brand. For this reason, strategic CSR, i.e. CSR that has been implemented in the overall business strategy as a value driver, is becoming increasingly popular as a business and a communication discipline, the ground rule being simple: "Say, what you do, and do, what you say".

Our services include:
CSR strategy / CSR communication / CSR reports online/offline


Sylvester Hvid & Co Ltd. is a nominated agency. In essence, this means that we buy media space on the same terms as any media agency. In a time where a larger proportion of the companies' ad spending is used to expose potential buyers to theirs ads, it makes sense to create a close link between those responsible for developing the communication and those bringing it to the market. By integrating media in our business model we secure optimal allocation of the overall budget from development to exposure. And by optimizing budget spend, we optimize effect.

Our services include:
Media strategy / Media planning / Media inserts and negotiations / Media buying
