About teehee

We are a modest but well established independent creative agency, focusing on the beauty and fashion sectors. We have a strong roster of international clients such as the L’Oreal Group, the Henkel Group and Philips. As a team we work very closely with our clients, and pride ourselves on our sense of ownership and creative freedom for each and every project. Our own internal production facilities make working on integrated campaigns, alongside diverse, dedicated and highly skilled colleagues, a natural process. We consider ourselves a Chinese agency, with an international attitude and outlook. As well as projects for China, we work across the APAC region and globally, so we foster a broad mindset. As well as our office in Shanghai, we have recently opened up a new office in London. We also have plans to open up a small office in Milan later this year. It is an exciting time to join teehee.
