Get the Hell Out

2016It’s the new year and we don’t know about you, but all of us here at New Ground are pretty happy about a fresh start.

Don’t get us wrong, last year was awesome for us. We expanded our capabilities (branding & strategic development, market & audience analysis, pitch & presentation building ) while continuing to hone our design skills. We are just super excited to make this the best year yet.

At the beginning of every year, we take a day to get out of the office, go somewhere fun, eat good food, and talk about what worked and what didn’t in the previous year. We strategize how to improve the weaknesses and ways to continuosly move ahead. It’s great to look at what projects we enjoyed and what projects posed problems and how we can remedy the problems and duplicate the enjoyment.

This is a good tool for businesses. It’s a way to gather information about where you were and where you want to go. Getting out of the office to do this is a key element. It energizes the workers and creates an environment that is new, exciting, and boosts ideas.

Here are a few things we are excited about in the coming year:

  • New partnerships with fun and engaging clients.
  • Learning new skill sets to offer an even more cohesive package.
  • Continuing to push our design so that we stay fresh and engaging.
  • Bringing on an intern, who will hopefully learn a lot and maybe teach us a thing or two.

We often tell people to make time for a mini retreat with their company. It has been an extremely useful tool for us. So gather your coworkers, pick a fun spot and start making good things happen!
