Team Effort

We’re a team of five, well six if you count Dora whose part nanny, part house manager, part comic relief, part person who makes sure we all actually eat so that we won’t pass out in the floor of this office. We’ll have to introduce her soon. She’s integral to our office life. And I can’t forget my husband Paul who plays the part of IT expert and keeps me fairly calm when all our tech stuff melts down. I did say fairly.

Annnyyway, back to my point. I think that since I’m the one that’s the “talker” that a lot of times our clients think I do it all. I so don’t. Like, not even close. If I did, I think I’d go crazy and my husband would have to send to to an insane asylum or at the very least to a therapist.

We’ve built this business over the past year and a half with lots of sweat and tears and there were some paper cuts that got a little gruesome. I have to give a shout-out to my whole team. Here’s my shout….

Walter is our senior designer, illustrator extraordinaire, art director, and he also happens to be my brother. Amber is our office manager, client coordinator, scheduler, mail checker and my oldest friend (since we were, like, eight). Jasmine is our newest team member (needless to say, she fit right in with our wacky bunch) – junior designer, file prepper, mood board maker, pinoholic and resident fashion guru – and yes, I have made her go shopping with me. Tyrie is our copywriter, brand consultant, marketer, sales rep and also my cousin. What can I say? I like having my family and friends around. I mean, they are pretty ‘effing fabulous.

We all play a huge part in the branding process with our clients. It truly is a team effort here in the Braizen office. We’re constantly doodling, drawing and collaborating on everything from design to dinner. Welcome to our world. Be on the lookout for more posts about our crazy work life in the Braizen office.
