Aktios Creative is the new trading name of “berlin2paris solutions”, a business established in 2005 originally providing French and German language services. As berlin2paris solutions grew and developed a wider range of services, it was decided to rebrand with a name that reflects the highly creative business it has now become.
“Aktios” comes from Greek meaning “of the sea shore”. The founders of Aktios Creative enjoy spending time by the sea, drawing inspiration from the crashing waves and the variety of shapes and textures of the flotsam and jetsam that washes up on shore.

“Your ongoing support has been invaluable. The music performances of The Farmer's Cheese and Deacon would not have been the roaring success it became without your PR skills in promoting our profile in newpapers, the internet and most impressively, on BBC Radio.”
