Our Secret Handshake is a women-owned + run creative strategy team based in East LA. We facilitate authentic brand partnerships + artist-brand collaborations, specializing in bespoke events, unique campaigns and immersive experiences. If you want to add a new dimension to an album/book/film launch, a tour, or need help dreaming up ways to connect your music, art or brand to a wider audience in a whole new + meaningful way, we'll make it happen. Just like that.
Our philosophy is to CONNECT MORE. There are some really cool ways the internet can bring people together; let's use them to get people out from behind their devices to meet. In real life.
We want to help you get your creative voice heard in authentic ways by more people -- people who will listen to and dialogue with you for years to come. We are artists + musicians ourselves, and have built our careers working closely with + supporting other artists. We know how hard it is to make art and sing out or speak up in the first place.
Artist-brand alliances work best when both parties feel free to be fully themselves. Brand partnerships succeed when everyone at the table is equally stoked to try something new, together. Yes, selling more records, tickets, books, products, and increasing everyone's bottom line is a great thing. But greater yet is when you can do all that and bring people together in meaningful ways, reminding us why we're really here to begin with.
