Bringing the Magic back

Over the last year, we’ve refocussed on… well, bringing the magic back. We don’t want to be just another AR / VR / Creative marketing studio. There are plenty of highly competent ones out there already. And while we all need to make some money to pay the bills, we’re passionate about technology having a positive impact on people. So, we’ve decided to get back to what we like doing best. Having great ideas, taking risks, innovating, breaking boundaries (you get the idea) is what we were all about, and what we’re back at doing now.
