The culture of the office really fosters a sense of community. People want to support you to do your best work and to grow in your career.

The most challenging part of working here is distilling the different options and design ideas that everyone comes up with. There are so many ideas floating around, but the reality is you have to narrow down the options to produce a project. That can be quite a nerve-racking experience for someone who’s creative.
