About

NoirLuxe

Whilst building projects from conception to completion, NoirLuxe is a specialist digital agency that currently offers services such as branding consultations, digital strategy, social media planning and management, content creation, copywriting, stills production, video production, web development, and e-commerce site build and development using Shopify. By thinking without restrictions, the producers at NoirLuxe are able to meet constraints and ambitions on every level. They do this by sourcing and managing teams of freelance professionals from fresh-eyed emerging talent to top-tier industry veterans in the fields of public relations, marketing, production, and photography. As a result, there’s no budget too small, no project too ambitious, and no ‘what if’ idea crazy enough for this agency to back down. Satisfied clients include fashion designers, modelling agencies, celebrities, retailers, and PR agencies.
