It works with great clients, has a hugely talented team and has an excellent creative track record which I am really looking forward to building upon. What impresses me about Space is its clear sense of purpose, to move people to choose its clients’ brands, and its belief that creativity that moves seamlessly between people, places and spaces builds closer, more valued relationships for brands.”
