This won’t be a typical agency news roundup for us. We normally update you on where in the world the Designsensory team has been — conferences, events, pitches, shoots. This time is different. We’ve been busy from home (social distancing) trying to navigate this unprecedented event ourselves and for all of our clients, who are really better identified as our friends.
We’ve transformed to an entirely digital workplace. Our account teams are mastering the art of Google Chat and UberConference (let’s face it, they are already proficient in those) and, more than ever, they are a compassionate resource to our clients. Our marketing and communications teams are assisting with internal and external communications to employees, stakeholders, consumers and members of the media, while our tech teams are working around the clock to provide crucial website updates. Our creatives are battling this time of uncertainty with brilliant designs and thoughtful copywriting — all from their makeshift home offices.
We’re doing all of the things that we’ve always done, but with a new environment. A new normal (for now, anyway). We are looking at this new normal as a time of transformation and hope. We are struggling to find the words to comfort our friends and we’re taking our own business operations model day-by-day. But we’re hopeful and optimistic. We will come out stronger on the other end of this. So no, this isn’t our typical agency news roundup, but we hope it will bring a little positivity and a sense of community to you. After all, we’re in this thing together.
Our clients mean the world to us, and they could all use some help right now. Please see below for some ways that you can support, and if you’re another client reading this, please let us know how we can lend a hand as well. We’d love to double this list.
As for us here at DS, we are going to take this time to support our clients, families and friends how we can, and our monthly newsletters will be moving to quarterly. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more updates. We’ll return to your inboxes in June! Stay safe.
