1. While remodeling and redesigning the space, the Touché Design Co. team took full advantage of being able to showcase its skills to everyone who stepped foot into their workplace. Now, clients and other visitors get a firsthand look at the results the team members are capable of, and they get to work in an environment that breathes creativity and inspiration into their craft. “It really has shifted our pride, having this beautiful space to come in and work,” says Ginger Robinson, the company’s president and creative director. “It has defined who we are as a team and given our workplace personality.”
2. The team went into the project with three main motivators: creating an open office collaboration layout, making the office flow to maximize studio space and bringing in design inspiration. “We had a rebrand, and it was time that our space reflected that,” Robinson says. “The space wasn’t serving us well as a team and didn’t have a lot of design inspiration.” To accomplish the project’s goals, they created a better layout for their library of materials and a new lounge for team meetings.
3. In addition to updating their own workspaces, Touché’s team members also created a presentation space for clients. Complete with a new layout and large screen, the new space serves all of their needs for client interactions. For other meetings with the team and clients, they updated the conference room, adding their branding photos and manifesto to the wall. Regardless of which space they were working on during the remodel, the team enjoyed doing what they do best in their own offices. “We had a lot of fun doing this together,” Robinson says. “It was something that we’ve been looking forward to being able to do as a team.”
