Who (or what) influences your creativity?
(Jan Carlos) My creativity is influenced by early 2000 films, 80s and 90s aswell such as The Breakfast club , Fight club ! I am also really influenced by Editorial work in Magazines like Dazed , Vman, Wmag etc

If you could fix one global issue, what would it be and why?
(Jan Carlos) One global issue I would want to fix is Racism. I am proud of being Latin American in this industry that prides itself on its diversity and really hope that other industries follow our footsteps along with the world
(Hector) If I could fix a global issue it would be hunger and starvation. Its really sad to know that somewhere on this rock there are people struggling to eat and being born into a place that might not be economically great. In 2018 I'm eager to involve myself in helping people in need
Where is home?
