Ann Arbor-based design and branding firm Q LTD continues to strengthen its connection with working partner Q GmbH in Wiesbaden, Germany. Team members from the two agencies recently met in Germany to take part in an annual agency retreat.

The Q + Q relationship, and Q’s new membership in the German-American Chamber of Commerce, set the stage for more collaborative work between Q Ann Arbor and Q Wiesbaden on behalf of German-American clients.

Q president Tom Rieke and Q designer Alissa Ampezzan recently joined Q GmbH for the German design firm’s annual 2-day company retreat. The agenda included reviewing creative work and exploring opportunities for the firms to provide branding, design, and web site development expertise to clients throughout North America and Europe. The Q + Q retreat itinerary included visits to Bad Salzuflen, Herford, and Unna in Northern Germany.

“Our time in Wiesbaden was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about German business culture, collaborate with the Q Wiesbaden team, and even improve our German,” said Alissa Ampezzan, who also spent several months working at the Q Wiesbaden office last year.

In its ongoing efforts to connect with the German-American business community, Q LTD recently became a member of the German American Chamber of Commerce and looks forward to cultivating new client relationships through this expansive organization.

Q LTD’s expertise includes corporate identity design, logos, web site design and development, strategic brand positioning, advertising, naming, environmental design, information architecture, and social media design and production.

Q LTD is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan and also has an office in San Francisco, California. On international projects, Q LTD collaborates with its partner agency in Europe, Q GmbH (Germany).
