September 1st to 5th
This week started with an introduction session: since there were four new people among us, Michael and I talked a bit about our studio attitude, culture and design process. We never did it like this before, usually it was something that happened more informally and step by step. The feedback was positive, so we think we should this in the future – even if there's just one new face joining the studio. It might be "old news" for some of us next time, but it's more about the conversation anyway.
Over the coming weeks, we'll introduce the team on Instagram and in our weeknotes. Since we all share a purely scientific interest in selfies, this is our format of choice: #teamselfies. And for sure, this isn't about permanent employees only, we'd really love to add alumni and friends that share or shared our studio space with us. If you read this and feel addressed, please send us your selfie! :-)
Let's start with the following three (the above mentioned fourth person will join us mid of this month):
Aisha found us by googling for "NEXT Berlin", because she liked the stuff she saw in their office windows (we designed it). We're really happy about this serendipity and looking forward to a lot of good soul and helpful structure in the studio.
If this first week of working with her is in any way representative, our 6 months shared future looks bright. For her internship, Amanda moved all the way north from cozy Schwäbisch Gmünd, where she studies Interactiondesign at Hochschule für Gestaltung.
Designer and co-founder in spirit
We've been working together with Philipp since the very early days of precious, when it still was a loose network of freelance designers, sharing passion for music production software UI. We're very happy to have him at the studio for a few weeks!
Also, the new and highly anticipated Blonde Readhead record called Barragán is finally out since last Friday. At least Johannes and me have always been their biggest fans for many years, although I have to admit that I'm not yet convinced of this new record.
