  • MANIFEST

    FCo. fullservice company in multimedia develops and implements projects in the areas of culture and tourism, communication, marketing, educative services and social responsibility.

    FCo. has never regarded or taken technology as an end or as an objective in and of itself. For FCo., technology is a means to a nobler end - be it pedagogical, educative, social or cultural.

    Naturally, FCo. uses interactive platforms and the most recent of technologies – beginning with identifying the scope, it then idealizes, develops, customizes and installs whatever is needed to accomplish the project which was designed alongside the customer. Likewise, in what concerns contents, its work reaches from conceptualization to production of multimedia contents, customized to accurately satisfy the client’s needs and wishes.

    Culture and tourism are its preferred domains of activity – with no less concern for any others, FCo. has developed projects with significant cultural and/or touristic impact and relevance, both in Portugal and abroad.

    FCo. shall remain on this path, firmly convinced that technology without content is the equivalent of a shell without life – beautiful as it may be – and that the best service which it can provide to its clients, and to the cause of culture and development, is to fill those shells with souls, contributing in that way to captivate, excite question and illuminate the public which visits museums, art galleries, stores, interpretative centres, companies, touristic locations and so many others locations where culture and communication happen.

    TEAM

    FCo. relies, for its projects, on a multidisciplinary team with transversal knowledge in all meaningful areas.
    FCo's base strategy and project team is complemented with colaborations on a per-project basis.
