Hi, nice to meet you!
This is Place, a character-based design studio. We are passionate about creating and bringing it all to life, and to the same extent, we foster and encourage stories.
Everyday, we instill love for the most beautiful creations.
Each project is a unique adventure, that is why we face it with all the care such experience deserves. This is the process behind any creative task, a “step-by-step” approach.
Above all, we think. We know it seems a simple task. But this is the only way we can analyze and offer the best strategic path to follow. We devise, conceptualize and imagine with our best the direction that will lead your project to success We wonder about the audience, their values and needs. We fancy stories to tell them and we figure out the design aesthetic approach which they will acknowledge better. The famous quote "Cogito ergo sum" by Descartes is continuously exercised by a pencil sketching both in our minds and sheets.
We are very passionate about giving birth to different projects, that is our best feature. We design aiming at novelty, polishing details, obsessed to the inch. We create with love. Animation which gives life is our daily challenge. Only then can we achieve the best results, to make your business project outstand.
We thoroughly check that the project is unbeatable, until the very last step. We validate compliance with the objective that we had agreed upon at the first stage of the project. It is only then when we get the feeling that the trust we were granted to create and direct the project is honoured. Relying on us is an appropriate decision from beginning to end, and we devote ourselves to keep it to the terms until delivering the project and then. This is our mission.
Every great project is achieved with a great solid teamwork: you & us. This is how we organize our skills internally.
