What do we do all day?
It’s a creative agency. Things appear magically upon request… right?
Not quite. Ever wonder what thinkPARALLAX packs into a 9-hour day? Many people and moving parts work together to make sure we stay creative and stay on deadline. Although some days can be pretty hectic, we still manage to make things entertaining for ourselves and our clients — that’s what keeps our creative juices flowing! So sit back and relax, as we walk you through a typical day at thinkPARALLAX.
We kick off each week with a team breakfast and review of our jobs in progress and deadlines.
Jonathan is always full of creative ideas.
… And occasionally there are disagreements. ;)
After our meeting, Project Manager Elizabeth makes sure designers stay on task, clients are happy and deadlines for each project are met.
Senior Designer Edison researches photography for a corporate responsibility report.
… and if he doesn’t find what he needs, he doubles as a photographer and shoots the photos himself!
Designer Allen, works on the Continuing Education “Stop the Hate” Campaign
Allen always keeps things fresh with his hand drawn illustrations.
The team weighs in on the design options.
Creative Director Guusje gives feedback on the “Stop the Hate” Campaign posters before sending work to the client.
Developer Mark utilizes lots of different technology, as he develops and tests a new website.
Guusje and Mark give Allen feedback for a new website design. Elizabeth makes sure no edits are missed!
Mark then implements the approved designs through Drupal (pretty technical stuff).
Throughout the day, Jonathan works with current and potential clients to create and achieve marketing goals.
If he’s not meeting with new clients, you might find him at the panini maker inventing a new sandwich.
Edison’s incredible attention to detail makes him a pro at creating extensive brand style guides.
After lunch, the printer arrives with new workbooks for Southern California Edison’s Leadership Program.
Guusje reviews the final product and gives her stamp of approval.
Ta-da! It’s always fun to see the finished product.
Allen and Elizabeth package new workbooks before sending to the client.
All of this hard work is quite exhausting for “office assistant” Newton. It’s time to call it a day!
