SANTIAGO HERMOSÍN, CO-FOUNDER OF 3PATAS DESIGN STUDIO, SPAIN

"Since I met Tom Allen in the Master of Product Design in 2007 at Elisava, I realised he was a person who stood out for his design knowledge and restlessness to make things happen.

When I co-founded the design studio 3Patas along with Carla Neila and Isabel González, we hired Tom to help us create a strong digital media, communication and PR strategy. Our collaboration was a complete success with a strong impact being made in the media during the launch of our 3x3 table produced by Francesc Ros. We appeared in a large selection of international design blogs, webs, magazines and prestigious Spanish newspapers. With the ball rolling, the same product won two 2012 Delta Prizes.

His knowledge of design and social media was a great advantage for us. Each day our platforms grow, and more importantly, more potential clients discover who we are. 3Patas is no longer unknown in the design world and this is largely due to the results of Tom's effective work."
