“Winning for second consecutive year a Grand Prix at Wave Festival for our market is a big honor for us, especially with an idea that defines so much how we think and what we truly believe in" explains Gustavo Lauría, Co-Founder and CCO of the agency.
The piece Rejected

"We are going to continue doing other related projects and hope we also manage to generate the same level of impact on other topics that are also important today and affects everyone."
