Regis is used to severe weather conditions... His brain storms even when he's asleep. This helps a lot especially when deadline is yesterday. What works in all other occasions is that Regis has an eye for details and quality visual stuff. To be more specific he has two eyes... and this makes everybody twice as happy.

Few arrows won at Lithuanian advertising festival Adrenalinas are also worth mentioning.
