The audience must believe what they see.

“First surprise, then fascinate. Finally, convince.” This is our strategy.

We are the first multidisciplinary studio that was created in Spain. We have explored all the media and categories of design. We have constructed a personal, artistic language of our own. And all this has given us the success and international recognition that our work enjoys today.

We know how important it is to transmit the authentic value and the essence of the brand, as we have managed to maintain ourselves as a brand that is valued and respected. We also know that to be able to deal with a commission successfully, we need to communicate emotions and manage to achieve a result that is unique, magical and desirable. We believe that passion, audacity and creativity can achieve innovative results that work.

After 30 years of positive experiences, we can affirm that our clients can trust us; our curriculum is our greatest guarantee. We deal with commissions involving large dimensions and great complexity, integral projects which bring together all the disciplines of design and, also, more specialised commissions, and to do so we have an excellent team of specialists.

We create friendly creatures with whom it is easy to live, images that delight one’s eyes, products to be used and enjoyed, and physical and digital spaces in which artistic intervention and design provide feedback. Our work communicates talent, excitement and optimism. Our stance is for a free, critical, creative attitude to contribute towards improving the present and to guiding the future with imagination and sensitivity.

Running in the morning through the city (down what the germans call a fussgangerzone) and being amazed by all the grand empty old buildings that reminded me of my Berlin beginnings. Grafitti on buildings. Lovely broken walls with acne'd facades from decades of reverse engineering. Discovering that all the ships on the river were party boats and open till the morning. Sweating so much in one of the clubs, my phone got messed up. Losing phone in said club. Visiting belgrade police station to report a then stolen phone to a twenty-something cop with a doctor's lab coat, listening to Rammstein (loudly) while hacking out my report on a pre-electric typewriter that looked (and sounded) as if it was from some era before typewriters were invented.   Thinking of Naked Lunch. Thinking of Die-Hard. Listening to architects talk about porous facades. Thinking of old smart bombs. Imagining the flash and crunch of several floors of reinforced concrete collapsing in on themselves. Wondering why I'm the only interactive guy here. Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade? Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade?!
