Many thanks to How magazine for featuring our WeatherJams pet project in their latest issue. Here’s a quick excerpt from the article entitled “The Power of Play”:
Rock Hill, SC-based Social Design House breaks team Social into small groups to work in what designer, illustrator and studio founder Tamara LaValla calls the “test kitchen.” “Dividing into smaller teams has proven to be an interesting experiment in and of itself,” LaValla says. “It’s introduced some healthy inner-office competition, raised questions regarding the variety of work each team enjoys and forced us to evaluate our problem-solving process. Perhaps most importantly, it has reminded us that there are negative implications in allowing missions and goals to remain too personal or unbalanced.”
