Spark has had an office in Brazil since 2012. The country is in a privileged position of economic and industrial growth, factors that contribute to an increased demand for innovation and product development. Brazilian innovation and design projects are worked on from the office in Recife in cooperation with the Rotterdam colleagues. Our colleague Hugo Honijk runs this branch of Spark. His focus is on both account management and the designs. At the start of this year, he was also asked if he would become the Honorary Consul in Brazil on behalf of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. A position he took on gladly and knows that he can combine well with the design agency.
