Our move to Montpellier last year generated strong interest from our collaborators, partners, and the entire industry. Our experience over this first year reassures us of the value of having regional branches. This relocation marks the beginning of a new era for our studio, allowing us to continue our growth in Occitanie, improve our overall service offering, and further strengthen collaboration with our local partners, such as ArtFX and PICS Studio.
