PurFX is a group of atypical individuals who have developed an uncanny ability to make things spectacular.

Over the past 12 years, we've pushed boundaries and broken conventions, building an international reputation for delivering creative experiences on a grand scale. This is the passion we share. It's what drives us, and in this realm we just can't get enough.

Today, we are proud of our many achievements, and proud to introduce ourselves as a bunch of crazy talented people who want only one thing: do it again and do it better.


Right away, we started pushing the boundaries, coming up with ideas that have yet to be matched. Our team is insanely talented, combining experience and daring, and we never shy away from a challenge. The clash of generations is behind some of our greatest achievements. Individual contributions and our joint capabilities are essential. We don't just envision the future, we take it into our own hands.
