Our Values

Our values are special to us – that’s why we put them at the core of our business. They drive everything that we do – from the way we work, to the people we hire, right through to the projects we work on.

Impact: We help our clients’ ideas grow by creating products that achieve their business outcomes and actually have an impact on their lives, businesses, society, or the world around us.

Togetherness: Everyone has a role to play and something to contribute – our Blender family is famous for having no hierarchy and no egos! It’s what helps us build long-lasting partnerships with both clients and our networks and helps us achieve awesome things.

Happiness: Life is too short to be anything but happy. We’re all about being professional while still having some fun while we work – which means positive attitudes all around, quality production, and happy clients too.

Curiosity: We are tinkerers, makers, and doers. We get amped up by solving problems in clever ways using the things around us – something we are famous for! We go beyond what’s already been created and think outside the box to develop innovative ideas that help our clients be pioneers in their own industries.

Straight Up: With us, what you see is what you get. We tell it like it is, which means our clients know exactly what’s going on with their project, and can trust that they’re in safe hands. We’re all about clear communication, honesty, integrity and a no fuss, no fluff approach to doing design and business.

Balance:It is important to think outside the box but to not forget the confines of reality. We tackle difficult design problems by embracing constraints from the beginning rather than ignoring them. We develop bold solutions in harmony with practical constraints.
