Exciting news! The other day as Tamlyn was looking for directions to someplace she noticed something very exciting on Google Maps! Our little company shows up with a proper caption, just like the Museum of London and other famous landmarks.
Insight, advice, news and chit chat
We’re HUGE fans of the project management tool “Trello” and within each task (created as “card”) is a super handy checklist function. So, you may think the answer to this headline is Trello but that’s a tool not a habit.
Could it be fate?
I am Jeff Yu from China. Last Christmas, I was preparing my portfolio in Tongji University Shanghai to apply for a master course in University of the Arts London. This Christmas, I have been studying in London for three months and working in Top Left Design for two weeks.
Last week we spent a week in Sofia, Bulgaria, and set up an office in Nu Boyana Film Studios so we could work while we were there. There were 4 of us on the trip – me, Amy, Elisa and Tam.
On Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday we worked full days; other than that we did all sorts of fun and team building things.
Editor’s Note (from Keren) This Poképost was written by James Ross – he has just done a week’s internship, and I set him the project of going out and experiencing Pokémon Go in Soho! Over to James:
Lately, we’ve been doing a lot of work on defining who we are, applying the EOS System with the help of Julia Langkraehr from Bold Clarity. It’s been amazing, and one of the exercises we did was defining our values. We did this as a team, facilitated by until we had narrowed down to 4 key values.
These are the qualities that everyone of us within the team has and what makes us so great to work with!
And there is other evidence of this – in the experiences our clients have and in the information we share on our blog and social media channels.
Keeping your team happy is definitely important to getting great results for your business! Aside from feeling good about yourself as a leader, I wanted to reveal the 8 benefits your business will get as the side effects of a happy workplace!
I have been in London for two months now. It means many days and hours spent. It also means a lot of adventures lived, lessons learnt, and issues faced (most of them solved, happily!)
This post explores some of the challenges I have experienced during my work placement, and a few humble pieces of advice I can now share from experience!
Ever heard the expression work hard play hard? Personally I think it’s a very apt saying and one that we tend to inadvertently apply in the TLD offices. We’re a hard working team with a lot of dedication to the jobs we do, but we also know how to have a good time whilst doing it as well as when we’re having a bit of “down time”.
I’m not sure if everyone is as lucky as us, so we’ve decided to share a few of the things with you that we do here in the office that bring a bit of “play” into our daily lives!
