The new year 2022 already brought new opportunities, projects and challenges for Studio Enabloo.
Instead of joining the big ambitious crowds and their half-hearted New Year’s resolutions, we decided to go one step further. The result? Four commitments that will guide our corporate actions (both internal and external) for the next 9 months.
01. Team & Partnerships
Our ultimate goal on an internal level is to build a good team. The nuts and bolts of this is finding people who are a good cultural fit for us. This means: a good mood (because work should also be fun), common charisma and aesthetics, authentic humanity and a certain (design) competence.
In terms of our client partnerships, we strive for eye-level collaborations that allow us to learn and thrive as a design studio. At the same time, it is part of our corporate responsibility and understanding to maintain a reliable and trusting relationship with our partners for a long and harmonious collaboration.
02. Constantly learning and improving
It’s so easy to do no more than what you always do. Sure, the comfort zone is a nice place to be. But we don’t want to be stuck here. We’re just getting started. We like to take on new challenges that allow us to learn and grow in a sustainable way. Be it business issues like tax or legal, psychological issues, testing and learning new tools or improving our animation skills – we love to move forward.
What a fashionable word. We know it. And yet, being authentic is likely one of the most powerful guiding principles in our day-to-day work. For us, it’s important to stay true to our line without obsessively putting our own stamp on a client’s project. At the same time, a client also books you for who you are and what you exude.
For us, this means creating a powerful and sincere external image in order to attract the “right” clients. The most important factors here are: Honesty and openness.
For example: it’s perfectly fine not to have an eloquent answer ready in a business meeting. It’s fine and important to communicate that and just come back to it a few days later when you’ve made up your mind or closed the knowledge gap. Communication is key. It is the foundation upon which trust and understanding can flourish.
04. Vision and values
