Renovation For Collaboration
Growth was a very present theme at RC throughout 2017 and into 2018. We had both people growth and growth in our service offering. To set up our evolving organization for success, we invested in our signature +strategy, +brand, +technology, and +marketing process for ourself. Riding the snowball effect of our investments and improvements, we figured that while we’re at it, why not renovate the entire office space?
We knew our office needed a bit of an adjustment to not only accommodate our expanding team but also provide a collaborative and inspirational workspace. We wanted our office to truly represent our brand and ourselves. Our goal was to create a comfortable place for employees, a place where people actually want to be.
Luckily for us, Kathy Steele, our President and CEO, is a designer at heart. Kathy and her co-design-pilot Clarissa Johnstone, RC’s Art Director, took the branded space project into their own hands. To create a more collaborative and innovative environment, they ordered all new desks and reworked the seating arrangement. The high top tables up front and the ping-pong table that doubles as a whiteboard provide outlets for collaboration (as well as an opportunity to burn a few calories ping-ponging over lunch). To support our caffeine addictions, they installed a new coffee and snack bar, plus another fridge.
They added new lighting and shelving, hung up our client work, and designed wall art that exemplifies our mission, vision and purpose. They also gave the walls a fresh coat of paint. We would not have been able to do it all without some amazing partners - the folks at Reike Office Interiors and Riel Painters, who went way above and beyond!
But we’re not finished yet! The rumors of an in-house video production studio are no longer rumors. Look out for more renovations in 2018!
