  • Co-founder & Development

    Besides serving as a design-as-a-service agency for tech companies, Blureo was also envisioned as a hub for creatives.

    At Blureo, we noticed there wasn't a good app setup for creatives in the DAAS area, so we created our own solution, Zunego.

    As a trial run, we've created a small platform where we invite our community to join challenges and make designs they can share with others.
