OUR MISSION

Touching People

The mission of the communication agencies was first to transmit the message from a transmitter to a receiver. Then, they broadened the spectrum of their expertise by considering the fact of the word “communicare”, which came from Latin in the 14th century and means “to be in relation with”. So they have integrated the notions of sharing and commitment.

By widening our point of view, we realize that this is one of the main motivations of the human being, to communicate; Create contact and interact with family, friends, colleagues, clients, etc.
Without communication, families can’t flourishes, companies can’t thrives and any Society can run.

The vision of Rhino Universal is to return to these fundamentals by using all the present technologies to meet your multiple and constantly specific needs, always remembering that technology is nothing without the base idea, the percutent concept, and the purpose of everyone; touching people intellectually and emotionally.
