Taking ownership for everything we do day to day is a guiding principal at REM.
As a designer I have no choice but to own every piece of design / art I create. I am given creative briefs that our clients have filled out to the best of their abilities. They have dreams and visions for their website - but not the artistic skills to complete. Helping them with their view gives me a great deal of happiness as I am able to transform their thoughts into stunning graphics and layouts that they are proud to call their own.
Recently, we have started to spruce up the office in some areas! As some of you may know we love a good game of fooseball.
It was time REM's House Rules had to be put up somewhere. With the help of Rob painting some chalkboard paint, I had a canvas for our rules to be etched into the walls in chalk.
Problem: Write 6-7 fooseball house rules on a wall, with chalk, and creatively make them look good!
Solution: Gather everyone's ideas for rules. Sketch it out - experimenting with different typography. Plan and lay out guidelines.Then, get to work meticulously writing each rule at a time.
Below is a shot of the wall. I'm very happy with the results! Now no one has an excuse not to buy doughnuts if they play a game and get skunked!!
