DIRECTIONS CO LTD. launched in 2004 with a focus on producing youth-oriented media content and has since expanded into educational content, corporate branding, animation production, and event design.

This expansion has been fueled by our appetite for learning, with a dash of creativity. I’ve found that these qualities are the master keys to entering and succeeding in just about any field.

However, having diverse enterprises within a single corporate entity made it hard to tell what the company was all about. So we decided to spin off the areas of expertise into separate companies.

Our origins are anchored in producing youth-oriented content. Time and time again, niche specialization has given us the momentum to expand our reach.

Furthermore, as entrepreneurs we take risks and learn through trial and error, failure included, which accelerates growth at levels that are unattainable by creativity alone. This is one of the things I’ve observed repeatedly over the past two decades.

Entrepreneurs who command both management and creativity are able to pioneer uncharted territory. The mission at DIRECTIONS Group lies precisely in cultivating more people with those capabilities.
