Balancing Work and Play
/ Encouraging “Play” to Solve Design Problems
Creativity Without the “Outside-the-Box” Cliche
If our experience designing award-winning education facilities has taught us anything, it’s that if you give a box to a group of kindergartners, within minutes they’ll turn it into a fort. Or a spaceship. Or a dark cave like Tom Sawyer explored. Not to get carried away; the point is: inside or out, it’s really just a matter of what you do with the box.
We Work, We Play
At HMC, we encourage that same spirit of play in our designers. We strive to create an environment where team members are encouraged to play with new ideas. One of the biggest obstacles to creating workable design solutions is the feeling of being limited. We remove whatever limitations we can by providing open work spaces that welcome collaboration, free-thinking, and the occasional rubber band war.
