LOGO AND MANTRA

ComCo Southeast Asia unveils its icon – a mothership housing the company’s great works and individuals with immense talent, meaning, passion and dreams, and taking off to conquer new horizons. The mothership is a vessel, a second home, a safe zone, a creativity playground, and a jumping board that empowers the ComCo Squadron to do more groundbreaking projects and make a difference along the way.

ComCo’s logo transforms from speech bubble into a digital screen, which beams the image of the mothership, and reflects the more modern, more complete and more integrated way of communicating in a world that has evolved. It shows the advancement, digital and multi-touchpoint integration, and completeness of the emerging global disciplines it champions – New PR and Smart Social. It represents the company’s outlook of being a global independent communications agency working with a network of independents in Southeast Asia and across the regional centers of the world, in providing integrated communications solutions and services to brands, companies and organizations of all shapes and sizes.

Whether online or on-site, ComCo SEA is ready to soar higher with its unique brand of meaningful storytelling, which is also the Agency’s new mantra, to ignite brand love, social change, talent growth and regional alliance.

“ComCo’s foundation lies in the heart of its leader and its team. Built on sincerity, trustworthiness, detailed organization, and persistence, this boutique agency is a force to be reckoned with.”

Stephanie Henares

AVP for Marketing, Shopping Center Management Corporation (former Advertising and PR Manager, SM Cinema)

“Our partners in ComCo are able to come up with fresh ideas from time to time, yet strategic and aligned with the business and communication objectives of our campaigns. Their ways of working complement our company’s pace in terms of how fast formulation and execution of plans are supposed to be, while maintaining high level of efficiency.”

David Viray

Brand Manager, AirAsia

“Building a brand is never a solo act. One of the most important steps to do that is to surround yourself with people who are as passionate as you are about your brand. Even at the onset, ComCo has shown unparalleled passion and commitment for the Goodyear brand, treating it as if it were their own.”

Kai Pioquinto

Asia Pacific Marketing Communications Manager, Emerson (former Marketing Communications Manager of Goodyear Philippines)

“ComCo Southeast Asia has been a longstanding supporter of WWF, providing a wide range of high-quality public relations services with a swift turnaround. Moreover, its officers display the same passion and love for the environment, ensuring that our environmental solutions are disseminated to the proper audiences at the proper time. WWF looks forward to more initiatives with this top PR firm.”

Gregg Yan

Former Communications Head, WWF-Philippines

“It’s no secret that the PR and communications function has had to evolve to embrace advanced marketing strategies. ComCo Southeast Asia has gone beyond the scope of traditional PR. They are more agile in building relevant brand messages that can bend and move, providing greater value in a wide range of services, such as social, content and digital.”

Andrea Pionilla

Country Marketing Manager, Electrolux Philippines

“I’ve worked with Ferds for more than 5 years now, and through several agencies. I was thrilled when he set up his own agency. ComCo Southeast Asia gives its 110% to a project, pouring in passion and love for our play advocacy. What started out as a proposal during the ComCo Mentorship Program, evolved, and grew into an actual play advocacy campaign which was launched last year.”

Maia Melencio

Partnerships & Resource Innovations Manager, Unilab Foundation

“I am most proud and pleased by our partnership with Comco which faithfully helped us spread the word about World Vision, especially during our year-long 60th anniversary commemoration in 2017. With Ferds Bondoy at the helm, Comco helped boost our media presence and positioning as an enduring child-focused NGO, as they provided timely advice and guidance to our advocacy awareness and fundraising thrusts including World Vision Run, Nakakalokal Concert with Ogie Alcasid, 2k in 1k Child sponsorship campaign, Marawi emergency response, and the recent Quill Awards winner See the World initiative in partnership with Air Asia. With that, we are so grateful and we look forward to more value-creating alliance in the future. More power to the Comcoys!”

Genesis Lamigo

Public Relations and Communications Manager, World Vision

“ComCo Southeast Asia is a reliable business partner. You can count on them to deliver their best!”

Claire Khoo

Former Senior Brand Manager, MARS SEA Chocolates – M&M’S®, Maltesers®, Seasonals

We have partnered with Comco to build our brand, Licealiz, for more than 5 years now. They have been instrumental especially in running our long term project with DepEd, Licealiz Kilusang Kontra Kuto. The team works as if they own the brand themselves so ideas, collaboration and execution is a breeze.

Bing T. Cavestany

VP - Marketing , Lamoiyan Corporation

"From day one of our partnership, ComCo SEA has been instrumental in building our brand voice and strengthening our message reach through various media partners nationwide. Their expertise shines in any brand activity that we do, and their ability to be adaptable in any situation is commendable. ComCo SEA is a vital ally in making sure that our brand and business goals remain on track, and we are confident that our continued cooperation will yield many more game-changing results in the future."
