Brand & format promise
“As a pop-soft format, we aim to conciliate this relaxing feeling to new music trends, which PURE Jingles has perfectly understood”, brand manager Lydwine Derny says. “It’s also very important to us that our brand & format promise is being translated through our imaging. PURE’s sound design is a huge part of our station’s identity.”
“They have worked on the basis of inspirational tracks and made very good creative propositions. The team knows very well what it’s doing, is always looking forward to feedback and deals with it fast and easily. We were also invited to attend the vocal session, which has been a great pleasure. Efficient in a relaxed atmosphere.”
