Sei-katsu-sha Insight is the foundation for our thinking, planning, and brand building. It reminds us that consumers are more than shoppers performing an economic function; they are individuals with heartbeats and distinct lifestyles. We coined this term in the 1980s to emphasize our commitment to a comprehensive, 360-degree perspective on society.

With sei-katsu-sha insight as the cornerstone, we combine creativity, integrative capabilities, and data and technology to play a leading role in advancing companies’ marketing activities and generating innovation in a digitalized world. In this way, we are able to impact and produce value both for sei-katsu-sha and for society.

Renowned for our creativity, Hakuhodo is a two-time winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, and was named Network of the Year at ADFEST 2021.
