“That’s the thing about working with people, no experience is the same, and it was all worth the learning it brings.” Founder Cecil “Khel” Rcuenco says. He believes in quality over quantity, and for that to be achieved, listening to clients stands as a top priority. “Know where you stand in the market. Create the needs for your clients. It is vital that you get to know them as a person. They are the real reason we thrive in business. Own your uniqueness and originality of concept.”
