"As all the most beautiful things, this is a project created accidentally!
An Italian guy, with a turkish girlfriend, went to watch Galatasaray vs. Fenerbahce match at one her Turkish friend's place, in Milan.
After the game (final score 2-2!), talking about their own life, turns out that the turkish boy's father has a textile factory in Turkey and the italian guy has just finished a Master in Brand Management.
The result? Easy: clothing + brand = fashion brand!
After a couple of days, another Italian boy joins the group, he's sales manager for a fashion company and he's going to add what was missing.
Thinking about what could represent iconographically the project, after several brainstorming jumped out an ANT!
GIANT was the natural consequence of an idea that can be summarized in the following statement: WE ARE SMALL AS AN ANT, BUT WE ARE THINKING GIANT."
