On working in-house…


You become an expert on the brand and have the ability to shape and define it internally and externally. It can be a long-term endeavor, but you get to see it grow and evolve over time, and see the impact it has on the business and culture of the company. There’s a sense of pride and ownership in everything we do. Shared goals and values
Having alignment on shared goals, values, project priorities, and ambitions across our teams and wider organization helps us commit to more thoughtful solutions, making space for exploration and iteration while crafting a stronger culture in the process.



In being a new team within the organization, we face common growing pains with processes and prioritization. Keeping the team focused on the highest priorities and being mindful of the type of work we take on is always top-of-mind to ensure that our teams don’t get burned-out and everyone can stay creatively engaged and challenged. Creating space to play
Tight deadlines and busy workloads cut into exploration time. It can be very easy to fall into a rinse and repeat process. We try to focus on high impact work and find opportunities to carve out time early-on in our processes to explore and play before narrowing in on a single direction.

On working with…


We bring in freelancers and agencies whenever we need to extend our team. When we don’t have enough resources to take on all of our current projects or when we need specialized skill sets not included in our internal team, like motion design, illustration, 3D, or photography. Bringing in new partners allows us to get outside perspectives and helps us see things in a new light. The most important thing is that whomever we bring in, we work as one team.



We hold the belief that all brands grow, but iconic brands grow with purpose. Our Brand Guidelines help our teams align on a common language and system in order to grow the brand in ways that remain inextricably linked to our brand purpose — to build a world where Identity belongs to you — wherever that pushes us in the long-term.
