I stayed there for almost 5 years, and during the time of working there I learned and gained a lot of experience and their way how to approach the smooth designflow. Besides the fact that the working environment was English speaking / colleagues were from different corners of the planet/, learned a lot about brand identity developing, seeking for right idea, right form, and executing it.
