“Finally, 12 years after we started our careers in Motion Design / Animation, we won our first award. We had elaborate plans to just steal some awards from Studios we work with. \"AWARD STEALING\" was the goal we were after. But now we won one on our own! Sometimes, the thug life just doesn't choose you.”
~ UBER Eck, Germany, Muse Platinum Winner
“The win has given me a huge boost in confidence and has encouraged me to pursue even more progression within my design work. In terms of sales, yes it has helped, I have been able to take on clients that I otherwise would have struggled to get through the door and have even had to turn some client work down as I just don\'t have the time now. However the biggest impact the award has had is in myself, my drive has never been so high. I have always wanted to start my own agency and winning the award has made me even more determined that I will achieve this goal.”
