First thing first: know your public.

Marketing is a fast-paced industry, and sometimes superficial happens. Gain a competitive advantage by going deep into the substance. It will lead to solutions that fit your specific communication needs. Have a look at my portfolio to learn how I can help. And do get in touch with any questions. Nothing spells creative and serious better than a discussion over a cup of warm infusion.

dakommunication: Welcome

Hi, I’m Daniel. Salut!

I work with independent artists in performing and visual arts to help them better communicate, lobby and become more prominent in front of the funding bodies, the government and the public.

Communication is my middle name, hence dakommunication, but with a lower case d – distinct, balanced, memorable. Like e e cummings. Like my friends, unteatru. Like more than naked. And with a k as in my family name, Kozak. Da as in ”yes”. So, ”yes” to a clearer, expressive, more authentic professional communication for you, your organisation, your project.

My background is in corporate communication and international development with NGOs and IOs. In 2015 I had the opportunity to work with the National Centre for Contemporary Dance in Bucharest , which re-ignited my passion for arts communication.

dakommunication: About Me
Premiile CNDB 2016


Good communication work is like electricity: you cannot see it, but if it is not there you know it is missing.

I consulted and worked for civil society, private sector, international organisations. They all have in common layered audiences and complex topics. My contribution is streamlined, creative communication that ultimately delivers improved visibility and consolidated reputation.

dakommunication: My Work


Set your objectives, so we can set your communications objectives subsequently.

Together we can look at any communication activity as something that can be developed and adjusted taking into account aspirations, possibilities, and the actual outcome.


Assess, plan, learn.

  • Let’s understand the issues first.

  • Line up (y)our ducks.

  • Learn from the experience (debriefing, post-mortem analysis).

Media Relations

Be  newsworthy and accurate, look effortless.

  • Communicate one to one and one to many.

  • Write, read, re-read.

  • Nurture charisma. Block-and-bridge.

Project Management

Prepare, implement, evaluate.

  • Hope for the best, deal with the worst.

  • Act. React. Re-act.

  • Have results, know the difference: outputs vs. outcomes.

Social Media

Create, be consistent & coordinated across platforms, maximise impact.

  • Text and image: content is king.

  • Get your mix of channels right.

  • Use your budget to complement organic reach with paid promotions.
