Graphics and Multimedia Designer
Lorena is from the same great School of Design and Attitude as Simone. She is a genius designer who has done it all over 25 years. She has an unbelievable ability to keep her cool under pressure, manage last minute changes, and make it look beautiful no matter what the idea.
Video Producer and Motion Graphics
Peter has a creative restlessness that is well satiated by all things computer graphic; from special effects to character animation, motion graphics to interactive design and programming. There are never enough hours in a day and none of them are dull. With 25 years of experience he is still pouring out new ideas and fresh approaches.
What Our Clients Say
We love working with our clients from all over the world
FURTHER is a group of talented professionals whom you can count on to get the job done. In working with them over the past several Cloud and Hosting Summits at Microsoft, they have consistently delivered an outstanding experience for our partners and made sure all logistics before, during, and after the event are taken care of promptly. They are my trusted partner for events and I would hire this team again and again. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a strong business partner.
Your team did an outstanding job producing both our Asia Pacific party and meeting this year. It can be hard working with teams on opposite ends of the world, but the entire FURTHER team made it easy for us. Your proactivity, creativity, and attention to detail helped make MGX’17 a resounding success for our team.
