MexiBrit -You’ve been in London for quite a few years now (how many?) Does it feel like home these days? Does it keep surprising you? and in what way.
MexiBrit – What has turned into a challenge for your job/projects with the current situation? Have you taken a turn to work in other fields?
We are a multidisciplinary studio, which means we are working on various fronts at any given time. Like everyone else, we had a lot of work cancelled or postponed, but we have been keeping busy with a lot of the r&d that we had already in the horizon. So we are hoping for things to pick up soon, but in the meantime we are cleaning workflows and pipelines.
