Not every office can be retrofitted with a fun-filled environment. Some businesses, because of the nature of the work and the industry norms, need to project a professional image for their customers. Other businesses especially from the service industries can, however, afford to let down their hair and live a little. It doesn’t mean that “serious” does not gel with “fun” though; varying degrees of both elements can be experimented for the best mix that fits the customer’s character and image it intends to project. The office for financial services company, Tiger Global, shows this mix of cool professionalism and chic fun. Read more about it in this issue.
Internally, we’ve also made two new appointments to oversee our design and project departments in an attempt to streamline and to improve our operations. Our staff Maggie Yeo is our newly appointed Associate Director for Project; she will manage the project team, making sure that our clients’ objectives are aligned and adhered to. Whereas Celestino is our Associate Director for Design; his task will include ensuring that quality of our creative work is always met as well as pushing our boundaries and excellence in design.
We have also, on a company level, committed to two runs that are coming up in November and December. The two runs are Run For Hope on 17 November and the Standard Chartered Marathon to be held on 1 December. To be in excellent shape for these runs, we need practice, practice and practice. Hence, recently we went on a night run to get our hearts pumping to ready ourselves. We will definitely arrange for more of such runs. We hope you’d enjoy what we’ve prepared for this issue.
