This Is What Communication Looks Like

We all have worked in, or visited offices that made us feel like we were in prison. Everyone works in isolation, quietly toiling away. You know, cubicles replacing the land of creativity. At Rev-D, we keep it simple, with a big open workspace and lots of laughing. As soon as you enter our office, you get a full view of everything going on.

The key to success is constant verbal communication. We use email and other channels to communicate frequently throughout the day; but when you’re in close proximity to one another, why not just chat? The fact is things are often, if not always, misinterpreted when people trade face-to-face communication for emails. We take the easy way and skip that frustration. We work with an open door policy, without the doors.

Here at Rev-D, we use group tables instead of cubicles. There is personal privacy, but our dividers are low enough that at the raise of your head, you are easily connected. Our teams are constantly working together and aware of what one another is working on. When multiple project requests come in at once, no problem, at an arm’s length you will have your Project Manager by your side to quickly help you manage and prioritize your work. Have a question you normally wouldn’t want to send an email to ask? Instead, receive an immediate response from a tablemate. Want to bounce a creative idea off someone? Take your pick, there’s a room full of great Designers who can help contribute. Was Client Services’ comment unclear? No need to wait. Get clarification right away.

This format allows creativity to exist and flow constantly through multiple people, and offers immediate collaborative, solutions. A great team is one that gets along. When we spend 8+ hours a day, 5 days a week together, we don’t just build ideas, we build relationships. Right in the center of the office is our well-known gathering area for meetings, celebrations and morning chats – our office bar. That’s what good communication looks like. And that is what we’re all about at Rev-D.
