Teamwork is the DNA of Vibe Avenue. Brainstorming, knowledge sharing, jamming and feedback sessions are happening constantly and organically and ensure fresh ideas and top quality level. Communication with our partners and clients is also one of our fortes.

Our deep understanding of both game and audio engines allows us to do a great deal of the audio integration part by ourselves, ensuring a smooth and efficient workflow while saving time and money along the way.
We take pride in our creative process and enjoy showing it. We also understand that marketing is an essential part of an audiovisual work’s success. We have extensive experience in producing making of videos and writing blog articles, as well as creating top tier sounds and music for trailers and other promotional material.
