Richmond Park School – Joy in Learning

🥰 As we told you on other occasions, we feel especially attached to this project.

We collaborate with them from the beginning and that’s why it was very emotive seeing how they welcomed their first students this year.

Looking ahead to 2020/21 Richmond Park School continues to grow based on its pillars: British curriculum 🇬🇧, creativity 🎨 and sports 🏀.

Its goal? Joy in learning.

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.

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

Our designs on Meninas Madrid Gallery 2019

Look what we found in Madrid: her name is Theia (like the Greek goddess of vision) and she’s one of the 54 sculptures part of the Meninas Madrid Gallery this year. We love the look that Antonio Azzato has thought for Theia because if you pay attention to her dress, she’s wearing the logo we designed for Fundación ALAIN AFFLELOU. What a joy to see our work in such a beautiful project!

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
