Every new moon, we appreciate an employee—or in this case—employees, who demonstrate a level of undeniable kick-ass-ness. It’s usually motivated by something that moves the shop, bowls over a client, melts a face or two. You get the general gist.
This week we gave our coveted Moonman to our Creative Director, Brian Grabell, and our Lead Developer, Scott Andersen. These two gents really embody the spirit of collaboration, and worked their butts off to complete our new agency website. They also sit back to back in our studio. A seemingly insignificant detail to some, but a critical part of our workflow.
As we watched them roll their chairs between desks, sharing insights, sketching ideas, and moving pixels, we were constantly reminded that this modern age of working remotely, screen sharing, and conference calling often misses what is at the heart of creative success: actually working together, in the same place. A quick visit to our shop will reinforce how this principal is naturally validated by our two Moonmen and the rest of our crew, as you’ll likely find most of us bunched around the type table, sharing ideas working on making our best ideas even better.
Some might call it old school, which is just fine by us. We’re still big fans of technology, but only when it’s really supporting humanity. PROCESS—whether it be for the hand-off between internal designers and developers or how we work with our clients throughout a project – is critical to crossing the finish line. But it’s more remarkable when it’s used to promote human-driven PROGRESS—the real, not-so-secret ingredient around here. Curious how it really works? Pull up a chair to our type table and get a little old school with us. Maybe you’ll even get a Moonman out of the deal.
