🙌 Our 2021 has been very exciting

We were very ” il dolce far niente” as we created a brand in 6 weeks 🤯.

We visualised ourselves walking through the streets of Santa Cruz de la Palma 🌴 and through vineyards all over Europe 🍷.

We returned to the most important women’s digital entrepreneurship event of the year 🚀.

We’re still going to our favourite British school with a smile 🦌 and we’ve also been encouraged to learn French in the institute 🇫🇷

We discovered the world of speciality coffee ☕️ and we now hate office coffee.

We enjoyed the blue ocean every morning 🌊 and lived in flip-flops from June to September 🦶.

We found time for mindfulness and ate enough manolitos 🥐 that we needed to tighten our belts.

We were very into podcasting on the way to the mall 🎙 and very into taking videos in restaurants 🎬.

We’ve exchanged urgency and love calls 🥰 and we’ve set off the alarms and not needed an island 🚨

✨We were together though we were apart.
And have resisted without tiring of insisting ✨

We would like to thank all our clients and partners for trusting in our team. Thank you for setting us new challenges. You make us better 💪

🥳 Here’s to a 2022 full of adventures 💫

⚡Acute & Creative at La Resistencia Late Night⚡

We continue adding up Thursdays as a team, recovering moments and creating new memories together 🥰.

It was a very cool experience, in which we also observed and learnt a lot 👀

We really enjoyed it and if you get the chance, we encourage you to go 🙌

Team building at @laresistenciacero?
We say “Yes” 👍

Sweet September 🍪

After the holidays we wanted to reconnect as a team and…. What better way than with a #TeamBaking? We had a great time making our logo baking version 👩🏼🍳 And it’s not because we did it ourselves, but it didn’t look bad at all, did it?

Thanks to Slow Pastry for the welcome, the recipes, and the patience. If you want to break the routine, we highly recommend this experience. All with local products and a 100% sustainable philosophy.

*We took off our masks for the photo (and to eat the biscuits, of course). Even so, the space was ventilated at all times and no kittens were hurt.

The Office 🎬 – Team reunion

So much remote working was boring us. We needed to see each other’s faces and share moments together. That’s why we started meeting twice a month to work as a team on our most important project…

⚠️ Something is happening in the office ⚠️

We will keep you posted.

Finishing details ☕️

📸 We’re getting closer to the launch of our new favorite coffee brand.

Is there anything more pleasant than the smell of coffee 🥺 Probably not.

My new daily routine: Mario

Hello! I’m Mario Vega and I direct strategic creativity projects and lately I study the studio’s processes and the clients🤔

⚠️My advice: If you feel lucky, hold on to that and don’t give it any more thought. Divert your mind: work, online courses… (there are many, very good and free). And the little time you can leave your house for a necessary errand, try to enjoy it, it may sound weird, but it has really worked for me.

If you want to know more about my new daily routine, I tell it you on our Instagram profile.

My new daily routine: Marina

Hello! I’m Marina, Acute’s Copywriter.

I admit it: adapting to this situation is being hard for me. But there are some things that help me to feel better: singing, video calls with my friends, exercising and watching The Office. ⚠️ My advice: be understanding of ourselves 🤗 and understand that we can’t be happy all the time.

My new daily routine: Rubén

Hi there! I’m Rubén, graphic designer and art director at Acute. Something that is helping me is the “no over-information” ⛔🙅🏻‍♂️ I’ve detected a couple of sources and I do not look much further.

My new daily routine: Romain

Hi! I’m Romain.  Acute & Creative’s CEO and Co-founder.
In this time of quarantine, it helps me to stay active 👨🏻‍💻📃 work and prepare for what comes next. It also helps to see that children adapt without asking too much. If they can, we can too. I draw a Pokemon a day ✏️ It relaxes me and my son really likes it.

Memoji Cups A&C

Look at our super Memoji Cups here! The silent war of getting cups for morning coffee is over. We all have our personalized cup and, in addition, we also have special ones for our clients.

Breakfast Acute & Afflelou

Briefs, projects, deadlines, calls … So that in the midst of such a task we do not forget that we work with people, sometimes it’s necessary to turn off the screens and change the routine. That’s why this morning we’ve invited the Afflelou team to the office, where we shared impressions with coffee and got to know each other a little better.

The Amazon Experience

There’s no day when Amazon doesn’t stop by our office. So today we decided to change roles to pay them a visit. We’ve been in its logistic center MAD4 observing everything that happens after our clicks: a very efficient process in which quality, agility, and the experience and privacy of the user are priorities.

We keep growing: Marina López

After a few months as a trainee, Marina has wanted to be part of our team and has assumed the role of copywriter of the study. She participates in the documentation and brand creation processes, although she’s also our personal grammar and spelling teacher. We’re glad to have you!
