778’s creative resolutions for the year ahead

We are 778 creative target for the year ahead 2018

Here at 778 we enjoy experiencing new creative challenges. As we welcome in 2018, we asked our design team what their creative New Year’s Resolutions are for the year ahead.

The introduction of a new calendar year means that there is time for us all to reflect and focus on tangible goals, which are achievable over the next twelve months.

As a group of creatives, the We Are 778 team want to start the year by taking a step back ­– assessing what aspects of our personal and work lives we want to change for the better.

SIMON

Work — Celebration through organic growth

“In 2018 I want 778 to continue to smash out amazing creative work for our clients and also for the company to grow in terms of our creative headcount – especially now we are entering our fifth year!”

Play – First and foremost, family

“I would like to spend more quality time with my family, especially my very patient wife and daughter, making sure that down time is really down time and enjoy whatever it is that we are doing together, and to put that phone down!”

ADAM

Work — Be more productive

“With the excitement of moving into new design offices, I am looking forward to the challenge of expanding the studios portfolio. By being able to fit more ‘bums on seats’, means that there is more ’thinking caps’ in our creative offices. I can really challenge our team in creating even more professional work. The results of 2017 were impressive, but this 2018 I would personally love to continue to produce high profile brand projects for our ever growing client list.”

Play – Home is where the heart is

“Outside of work, I am an avid interior decorator. I will continuously be coming up with new ways to spend my hard earned money on my new home. Developing my personal space is a must. Not only am I keen to create my own Home Office but I must also tend to my kitchen space. That deluxe coffee machine is calling my name…”

TOM

Work — Make the downtime work for the uptime

“During last year I found myself with plenty of opportunity to visit some exciting design festivals and to fit in some museum visits. These visits gave me some valuable insight into how other people work and how they go about their working lives. I often try and do these events with close friends or family, as it’s easier to reflect on something that is shared then in isolation. I always try to leave with something tangible to remember my experience so I can look back on what I learnt. During 2018 each month I will aim to visit one event to bolster my uptime.”

Play – Make more meaningful creations

“I tend to find I’m the happiest when I’m learning a new craft that enables me to create something tangible. Each year I try and learn a new skill that I can put my own hand to. This year is no different. In 2018 I have decided to work on leather craft, I will start by attempting to create a simple card folder, with the hope to make a full wallet by the end of the year. Wish me luck!”

Why not break the rut and try something creative yourselves? Do something fun, but most importantly do something!

A New Year, A New Place to call home.

A New Year represents plenty of opportunities for exciting new things, and for the design team at We Are 778 it means a new place to call home – we’ve moved into a brand new design office.

Don’t worry though – we’ve only relocated a short distance from our old design office. This means there’s more room to expand our growing team of creative designers.

With more space to fit additional creative heads we can apply even more great ideas to our client projects. Did we also mention we now have a series of recreational breakout areas, including a pool table and table tennis, to help our creative designers battle periods of creative block!

2017 saw the opportunity to expand and build on our momentum as a creative design studio. We wanted a new space that reflected our ambition and retained much of the culture we have shared with both our staff and clients. With new breakout areas, and being placed more centrally we hope to maintain our high level of service to all clients.

The design office and its surroundings have recently been refurbished, letting us immediately make our own personal mark on our new place.

We are still getting things just right – making sure all our hung artwork is level, but when we are finished we have a little ‘open office’ planned to welcome our clients.

As we enter our 5th year of business, we are really excited to see what 2018 has in store for us – with this new creative space starting to feel more like home, we can’t wait.

If you would like to come in for a coffee and say hi we can now be found at:

Suite 5, 2nd Floor, The Chocolate Box,
8 – 10 Christchurch Road,
Bournemouth BH1 3NA
