Collaboration

What was the objective behind your collaboration?Het bureau heeft geholpen om een totaal nieuw product een elegante identiteit te geven, deze identiteit is een weerspiegeling van onszelf, en de smaak van ons product. Dit Design doet de kwaliteit van het product uitstralen.

What did you enjoy the most during your collaboration?we werden zeer vaak getriggerd om onze grenzen te verleggen.

Are there any areas for improvements?Voor Finance 1 verzoekje : De verkoopsvoorwaarden apart mailen naast de factuur. Vergeet telkens dat dit samen staat en krijg dan 7 bladzijden, terwijl dan maar 1 blad hoeft te zijn.
