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.

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.
