QUAD retrospective - Four Years of QUAD
On 19th November, QUAD year 4 mark a very special milestone for our studio. Due to COVID, we weren’t able to create the event we were hoping for where all our friends can celebrate this event together with us. Instead, we held an internal party by linking all our studios using video conference to celebrated our 4th Anniversary.
However, it was great to see and experience many of our friend’s video messages from all over the world which where funny, enlightening and encouraging as the pandemic has greatly affected all of us.
There was also a message from our creative partners in Perth Australia which we hope you will see more collaborative works from in 2022.
