Currently, he is not only the Principal of his own design house, Orangy & Sweet, but also shares a piece of his creative mind to the popular demands of his strategic agency partners in Canada and China.

In times where inspiration is dull, Eugene has a rather unique method to reinvigorate his creative soul - scotch whisky.

Wilfred's definitely a thinker. He brings to every project his unique analytical skills, combined with an apparently bottomless pool of technical know-how.
