Rafael is the Founder & Creative Director of Savvy Studio, a branding and architecture design practice focused on building all-encompassing experiences through different ventures including: boutique hotels, restaurants, retail spaces, art galleries and museums.
Prieto’s nature for all things creative led him to conceive Casa Bosques, a creative platform within the Savvy umbrella that builds and develops projects of sustainable and permanent nature by collaborating with like-minded experts in various disciplines.
Casa Bosques Chocolates became the first initiative of this experimental entity for the agency. Rafa’s personal passion for cacao fueled by his constant pursuit to finely craft products of the highest quality resulted on special collaborations that produce editions of premium artisanal chocolate. Casa Bosques Books is the library counterpart, a design bookstore based in Mexico City exploring a wide range of subjects, including photography and fashion, a sensorial voyage through the lens of connoisseurship.
Savvy’s projects span across the globe including New York, Los Angeles, Madrid, London and Mexico City.
