Gin-crafting, pet portraits, snowboarding…as a team we do a whole lot more than advertising and we’re ready to share our passions!
Our greatest asset is our people. Not only are we a talented bunch of creatives, web developers and client servicers, we’re also a team of festival fanatics, fell walkers, wildlife photographers and more! We’re keen for life here to be about more than just showing up for work. We care about each other’s personal passions and projects. Which is why we’ve launched The Foundry does…
The Foundry does…is a chance for us to share what makes us tick with our colleagues via challenges, events, days out and fun activities. We have a commitment to health, well-being and vitality in all areas of our lives outside of work, as well as enjoying a few guilty pleasures! So, we thought what better way to connect with each other and live our company values than by sharing our favourite pastimes.
Every few months, a different member of our team will choose a theme close to their hearts and get others involved. It’s a chance to nurture the great culture within the agency and to help people showcase their individual talents, from hiking to snowboarding.
First up, is Finance Manager, Elaine, who set a brilliant brief based on her love of wildlife photography. Having been a member of a photographic society for the last six years she’s developed a passion for capturing birds, sea creatures and other animals on camera.
Her challenge to us was to photograph letters and numbers that appear in nature, objects and the environment with the aim of creating our own urban typeface.
Entries have now been submitted by everyone and Elaine will be the ultimate judge of which shot is crowned the overall winner. It’s been a really fun project for the whole team to flex their creative skills and explore their local area. You can see our completed typeface below and on Instagram. Hope you like it!
