    Investigación & Conceptualización
  • Initially, a robust investigation of the brand and the principles that led it to establish itself as such, from its creators, to the technical factors that compose it, was carried out. Likewise, the magazine was related to similar references both internationally and locally (Bogotá, Colombia), not only in order to analyze a similar aesthetic, but also the convergence of the values presented by the journal. Following this, profiles corresponding to these values were defined, which were supported by people who in their habits can come to share the same of the brand.

    En un principio se realizó una robusta investigación de la marca y de los principios que la llevaron a establecerse como tal, desde sus creadoras, hasta los factores técnicos que la componen. Asimismo, se relacionó la revista con referentes similares tanto a nivel internacional como local (Bogotá, Colombia), no sólo con el fin de analizar una estética similar, sino la convergencia de los valores que presenta la revista. Seguido a esto, se definieron perfiles correspondientes a dichos valores, los cuales fueron sustentados con personas que en sus hábitos pueden llegar a compartir los mismos de la marca.
