“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again
Expecting different results”
ARDS is a design firm that seeks to provide solutions to needs that differ on their kind and scale, through designing products, spaces and service, offering valuable experiences that improve livelihood standards. We are a multidisciplinary team; we identify opportunities and challenges and solve them through design. We develop strategic alliances with organizations, manufacturers and suppliers in order to ensure an ideal approach, realisation and positioning of the solution.
We seek to generate human, social, aesthetic and economic value through our products and services. What distinguishes us is the fact that we offer high quality, exceptional solutions for a wide range of necessities, achieved by the creation of a close collaborative relationship between our customers and suppliers, thus achieving assertive collaborations for each one of our projects.
We are interested in the collaboration with customers that share our values, customers that are committed to quality and collaboration. Customers that understand the value and potential of design considered as means to improve their sales, processes, projects and results.
Our designs vary in scale and complexity; we develop products, from bricks to satellite seismic alarms. Each one with an individual value and character, depending on the purpose for which it was created.
