This year WAACS celebrates 22 year of design history. The dutch word ‘waaks’ stands for alert, watchful and vigilant. WAACS was founded during the early 1990s recession, it prospered during the burst of the dot com bubble in 2000 and is again thriving in the current chilly financial climate. When the going gets tough the tough get going. This is a salute to original founders of the studio back in 1992.
