"This is the fourth consecutive year since UniCredit Bank supports Romanian Design Week and is one of the closest projects  to our brand's DNA.

We support Romanian Design Week because we strongly believe in the consistency  thinking and doing things on long term and not to expect results overnight.

And this is one of the messages that we want to give to the creative community: that is essential to have talent, but is not enough; you need patience, confidence and working to turn your talent into a real story of success.

You need also a bank. For this reasons, we want to be a bridge between the world of business and the creative industries, to promote the authentic stories, the people behind them and with them, we want to develop a sustainable market of romanian design"
