WORKED WITH
BREAK THE ICE
It's very important to make easy atmosphere.
During the filming process, I am focused and serious, but I do not want the internal voltage to be transmitted to the team. It is important for me that new people can relax and enjoy themselves, not stress from work. Heart glasses and other fun accessories help me get closer to newcomers.

What people say
Sarah Lewin
Projects manager in Pixels
It was just a gradual development over the years. Last year was "All You Need Is Love." This year it's "Give Peace a Chance." Remember love. If you want to get peace, you can get it as soon as you like if we all pull together.
Samuel Willson
Creative director in DD agency
The principal element of Suprematism in painting, as in architecture, is its liberation from all social or materialist tendencies. Through Suprematism, art comes into its pure and unpolluted form.
Alex Larkins
Founder of Pic Pen studio
We were just building stuff 'cause we thought it was cool. I do remember having these specific conversations with my friends where we thought, you know, someone is gonna build this. Someone is gonna build something that makes it so that people can stay connected with their friends and their family.
