Every project, relationship, and endeavor we take on as an agency is built upon the values we live by: Stay Curious, Paddle Out, Ride or Die, Keep it Real, Create with Heart, and Raise the Fun Flag. We welcome you to take a look as we explore what each value means to our agency and the people that embody them each and every day.
The video will unpack each value listed below and explore the resonance each has on our agency, our work, our employees, and our strategic partners:
Stay Curious: We believe in new ideas, experimentation, and what follows the words "yes, and…" The world is a vast source of inspiration and our imaginations fill in the rest. We share our sense of wonder with our clients and teammates on every project. Innovative and pragmatic, we balance our problem solving skills with artistic flair to push the boundaries of creativity.
Raise the fun flag: Here at Smashing, we celebrate the good feels. We know the value in taking time to share delightful moments of silliness that bring us together and make working here so darn fun. We have a legacy of bringing the fun and making the world smile. Show everyone the joy you have for your work and let your fun flag fly!
Keep it real: A truly smashing idea can come from anyone, which is why we respect the unique talents and perspectives of our teammates from day one. Being real and bringing our authentic selves to work each day builds trust and accountability among teammates, which creates a positive environment to do our best work.
Create with heart: We are a part of a team that believes in what we create. We bring a passion and drive that makes our projects that much more awesome. Together, we make a difference for people and create things that matter.
Paddle Out: We're a company of go-getters with a bias towards action; constantly taking risks and seizing new opportunities. Our daring audacity compels us to explore uncharted territory and take on unsolved problems. Fearless and resilient, we relish the opportunity to learn, grow, and discover something new.
Ride or Die: We are all in when it comes to our team and Smashing Ideas. Our choice to work here is driven by the desire to be part of this crazy group of people who believe we can do something special together. We support and encourage each other, stand up for great ideas, and strive to build relationships with our clients that stand the test of time.
By definition, we're a modern digital product, service, and digital innovation partner. In practice, it means that we work with Fortune 100 clients across each stage of the innovation process to generate breakthrough ideas; plan, design, and deliver digital products and services; and lead teams to unearth new businesses, services, and products that give them undisputed distinction in a crowded market.
We do end-to-end product, service and experience design. Does it have a screen? Can we talk to it? Is it generating tons of data? Is it something really hard to figure out, or in a technically complex space, or just needs to be amazing? If you've answered yes to any of these, you've found the right people. We help companies crack big business and design problems in digital, and teach them modern ways of working in the process. We offer strategy, research, user experience design, visual design, and development services, which means we can take you from initial research to full product realization without any breaks in continuity.
