a place for cultural exchange

How can we as a creative agency envision the connection between cultures?

empathy

By creating a video that puts all emphasis on the peacefulness and harmony of this unique place...

balance

... and by outlining all cultural elements in a balanced relationship: the inherent characteristics of the North-American nature together with a modern interpretation of Islamic architecture.

“Our collaboration with Morean was very rewarding. They took the time and care to really dive deep and understand the aesthetic and intellectual underpinnings of the project. Then they explored methodologies that not only created beautiful imagery, but emphasized those important aspects.Their ability to render the experience within both wild and constructed landscapes was a particular joy.  Morean’s working methodology was inclusive and iterative, and we felt a true partnership. The end result was one that is elegant and informative and has been extremely useful in building excitement for this important place.”
