Agnes is a multidisciplinary Art direction and Design studio founded by Gustavo Quintana and Estefania de Ros working across Spatial, Product Graphic and Interactive Design. Our aproach is based on the creation of progressive and experimental concepts through research and a deep understanding of design not as aesthetics or functionality but as a a process and method to raise and answer the questions our society faces today. We take the end user at the center stage, seeking new ways to interact and new user behaviors. We consider Design as an interface between users and their context , as a powerful tool to shape new realities and provoke new meanings.
