We’re 3! Last month we celebrated FOUNDRY’s third business anniversary!
Three years ago, we stepped out on our own, with a vision of creating a studio and culture that reflected who we were and how we wanted to design. From our days at DAAP to days in offices and on construction sites, we had countless experiences that shaped our view on design and its place in the world. We never felt that design was an individual sport, and we also never felt that design (and designers) should create, design, or exist in a vacuum.
Our branding and tagline, “Creativity | Collaboration | Connection,” while seemingly some kind of catchy alliteration, came fairly naturally and fairly quickly. It was born out of the notion that design should inherently be those things; design should be seeing the world as is and imagining it in a new way; design should be a collaborative, “us is more” concept; design should be connective, to a place, to one another, and ultimately bring people together. We felt in our core that these 3Cs of design would mold the client experience with a focus on human centric design, ultimately creating spaces that were contextual, transparent, focused, and impactful.
We’ve had our share of highs and lows, designed some cool things along the way, but most importantly, we’ve connected with and met some phenomenal people. With each cup of coffee, conversation, and connection woven into the fabric of our business story (and of us), it’s hard to put into words and express how much gratitude we have.
Here’s to everyone who helped us along the way and remain a part of us moving forward. Cheers to the next chapter.
