Most of the time, our JJCA team members are the epitome of collaboration, teamwork, and cooperation. After all, excellent design is an iterative process, and the more we pull together with creative camaraderie, the better the project.
And then, sometimes, our JJCA team is a little competitive.
For example, when we design the T-shirts for the annual company picnic, it’s an all-out creative contest. And everyone brings their best-in-class, top-notch “A” game attitude. We prefer to think of it as a little friendly competition.
