OUR 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. As each of us explores the world and fulfills our respective missions, we always return, recharge and reunite in our mothership where we all belong. That 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, the digital and multi-touchpoint integration, and the 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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.

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.”

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.”
“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.
