Unlocking creativity: the power of cross-border collaboration in creative agencies

In the dynamic world of creative agencies, innovation thrives on collaboration. As boundaries blur and connectivity strengthens across the globe, the benefits of agencies collaborating and sharing ideas with counterparts in different countries are becoming increasingly evident. This exchange of ideas not only enriches the creative process but also fosters a culture of innovation and diversity within the industry.

One such example of this collaborative spirit is the upcoming meeting between Fresco’s very own Co-Director Triscia Ambrosini and Massimo Donini, Co-Director of Mia Agency, set to take place in Milan this July. This rendezvous underscores the significance of cross-border collaboration in nurturing creativity and driving excellence in the field. MIA is a leading Media Representative agency based in the historical centre of Milan, Italy. Founded in the early 1980s by former advertising executive Mirella Donini, MIA has a dual speciality: it focuses on the promotion of the Italian luxury market on high-end fashion and lifestyle magazines abroad, while also acting as a local representative of these magazines on the Italian territory.Upon its creation, MIA began representing the American editions of GQ and Vanity Fair, along with The New Yorker in Italy. Today, its ever-growing portfolio covers a wide spectrum of top international glossy magazines, predominantly those published by Condé Nast — in the USA, the United Kingdom, Portugal and, more recently, China.

Cross-pollination of ideas

When creative agencies from different countries come together, they bring diverse perspectives, experiences, and cultural insights to the table. This cross-pollination of ideas sparks creativity, enabling agencies to approach challenges from new angles and devise innovative solutions. By tapping into the collective intelligence of global talent, agencies can push the boundaries of creativity and deliver unparalleled results for their clients.

Cultural exchange

Culture plays a pivotal role in shaping creativity. By collaborating with agencies in different countries, creative professionals have the opportunity to immerse themselves in diverse cultural landscapes. This exposure not only broadens their horizons but also deepens their understanding of global trends and consumer behaviour. By infusing cultural elements into their work, agencies can create campaigns that resonate with audiences worldwide, transcending linguistic and geographical barriers.

Access to specialised expertise

Every country boasts its own pool of talent and expertise. Collaborating with agencies abroad provides access to specialised skills and knowledge that may be scarce or unique to certain regions. Whether it’s leveraging cutting-edge technology, tapping into niche markets, or incorporating local aesthetics, cross-border collaboration allows agencies to harness the strengths of their international counterparts, enhancing the quality and effectiveness of their creative output.

Global network expansion

In an interconnected world, establishing a global network is crucial for the growth and sustainability of creative agencies. Collaborating with agencies in different countries opens doors to new markets, clients, and opportunities for expansion. By forging strategic partnerships across borders, agencies can strengthen their presence on the global stage, diversify their client portfolio, and stay ahead of the competition in an ever-evolving industry landscape.


In essence, the meeting between Triscia Ambrosini and Massimo Donini symbolises the spirit of collaboration and innovation that drives the creative industry forward. By embracing cross-border collaboration, agencies like Fresco Creative and Mia Agency are not only enriching their own creative endeavours but also paving the way for a more interconnected and vibrant creative ecosystem. As they exchange ideas, insights, and inspiration, they reinforce the notion that when creativity knows no borders, the possibilities are limitless.
