As usual things have been pretty busy here. So, here’s a brief overview of what we’ve been up to and working on over the last quarter.

Grown the team

We welcomed Sophie to our team. This was a short-term engagement as Sophie is off to do a post-graduate. But what it has proved to us is that we can and should grow our team.

This may sound silly, but this really isn’t a minor thing for us. As up until now we’ve deliberately eschewed growing our headcount. So, we could afford ourselves greater flexibility in terms of choosing the projects we work on. However, working with Sophie has taught us that the benefit of an extra pair of hands in the office far outweighs the perceived costs!

So, over the coming months we’ll be providing a series of internship opportunities aimed at those with an interest in:

Moved office … well not quite

Like you, we know how painful and frustrating it can be to move office – BT Business services anyone!!! That’s why rather than moving out of our existing building we thought it’d be a better idea to move all of 5 metres from our old desks to a slightly larger space within the Creative Exchange Leith.

The new space is certainly treating us well. In fact, it’s amazing how much of a difference it’s made. Put simply, change is good! Now that we’ve moved, there are 2 more free desks down at the Creative Exchange. So, if you’re looking for flexible office space pop down and check out the building – it could be exactly what you’re looking for.

As you’ve probably gathered from everything that’s mentioned above – that’s a lot of work. That’s why we’ll definitely be on the look out to grow our team over the coming months.

That said, we’re in no rush to do this. As we know that finding the right people with the right skills, attitude and appetite (whether they be freelancers or full-timers) takes time.
