Where do you see future challenges in communication design?
Communication design must unite disciplines, address several senses and be thought of in cross-media terms. All measures must be based on the same basic idea.

What makes your daily work as a creative so special?
We devote particular attention to our design approach and treat each project as something promising and unique. The results are not only just good design and great sound – they also have a story to tell. And seeing this come to life with a team is very special.

Do you have a specific design approach for your projects?
Good communication design should solve a problem and tell a story.
