The message is dead.

Long live the value.

Brands no longer have the right to be heard.
Zilch. Zero. Nada.

In today’s crowded, ever-evolving and innovative marketplace, the right to be heard has to be something you earn. And it's not your media spend that's going to do the talking.

Interactions with your audience now need to happen organically in a values-based and culturally relevant manner in order to build your Cultural Currency. Because brands that live within culture don’t have to shout to be heard, they’re already part of the conversation.

LOUD. Make Yourself Heard.

Welcome to the age of cultural relevance

Culture is the world’s most powerful driving-force. It encompasses our interests, our beliefs, customs and demographics. It defines what we deem worthy, useful and important. And it’s where you need to be.

At LOUD, we harness the power of culture to create new possibilities. Whether you’re a brand, a product or a policy marketer you’ll be partnered with expert strategists and creators to produce work that will weave you into the fabric of culture.

Gerry Cyron

Head of Planning and Innovation

Inspired by Vance Packard’s ‘The Hidden Persuaders’, Gerry started his quest to understand how people tick, what drives them, their motivations, fears, and desires; and then use that understanding to build brand narratives for commercial gain and/or behavioural change.

Armed with a MSc in International Marketing, Gerry began his professional career as a Management Consultant 17 years ago in Germany at BBDO. 

He has since worked in Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney across a broad range of local and multi-national brands and many categories such as FMCG, finance, automotive, travel, etc.

His work has been recognised and awarded in the major award shows. The Won Report named him the 2nd most awarded Planning Director in the world. Whilst all shiny metal is nice, the real gong that matters to him is Effectiveness. And Gerry scored many of those together with his clients, including the first ever Cannes Effectiveness Lion for the Ogilvy Worldwide Network and The Coca-Cola Company. His drive for Effectiveness made him a regular judge for local and international Effectiveness Awards.
