How We Work
We work with designers and researchers, strategists and journalists. Whatever your area of expertise, these are our principles for successful collaboration.
Some of our principles
Own your work
Whichever piece of the puzzle you’re responsible for, we expect you to be responsible for it 100%.
Master your work
Mastery is about experience, skill, but above all, care. Your final outputs should be sturdy, high-calibre, and complete.
Run the show
More than a contributor, we expect you to be able to present, contextualize, and defend your work directly to the client.
Quick and clear
We prize quick, clear, and early communication, especially via Slack, Loom, and Notion.
We avoid internal meetings that aren’t preceded by a written and/or video brief so context is clear and no time is wasted.
We work independently, but in the end, your processes, tools, and outputs must be able to sync with the broader engagement.
Everything’s on the record
Meetings are recorded and occasionally transcribed so that new team members can get up to speed quickly and independently.
There’s no time to be shy. We keep our work visible to each other as it progresses, however rough it may be.
Whether it’s how to use software x or the meaning of acronym y, we expect you to find out what you need to know autonomously.
How we run our projects
We’re a bit specific when it comes to our workflows and the basic stack below forms the core of our system.
