Our Office is a Pokemon Pokestop!
“So much sweet Pokeball goodness”
It wouldn’t be a true web design agency if there were no references to video games, pop culture moments or Nicholas Cage memes – and with the world launch of Pokemon Go in Australia last week, Melbourne hasn’t just gone crazy, our office has too. Swarms have taken to the streets on the weekend and from the looks of it, the addiction doesn’t seem to be slowing down. I don’t know about you, but when you work in a digital agency, it’s hard to ignore the latest and greatest in technology so we did some…user experience analysis *wink wink* – “gaming at work” is such an ugly phrase, we prefer “first hand digital UI and UX research and testing”.
It makes it twice as bad when our office itself is a Pokestop (well, it’s only a stone’s throw behind us which practically makes the whole business a treasure trove full of sweet Pokeball goodness). With the majority of our staff being Pokemon fans, we’re bound to stumble across a few “productivity issues” in the agency. From full service digital agency to full search digital agency. Let the hunt begin! “Boss, I’m Running A Little Late To Work” Feeding the birds whilst waiting for the (5th) train that I’ve just missed. Whoops, I didn’t notice the sign! Sick Leave Approval Nice try. I think we all caught something this weekend. Pokemon fever! Management Issues No gaming during work hours, but if you’re going to play, make sure you bring the whole team. We might need some freelancers for the week :) At Least It Gets People Out Of The Office It’s the new fitness app that’s getting everyone out and about. It feels like a ghost town. IT Support Needs Extra Support The good old blue screen of death has truly evolved. You can’t keep logging in server error tickets people! Knocking Off Early To Head To The Gym Of course it’s leg week right across Australia. Taking The Scenic Route Between Client Meetings Enjoying the web ‘sites’ and sounds of the city. Sleeping On The Job Putting the snore in Snorlax. Our designers need a quick power nap for a quick recharge – that’s why we call it “responsive design”.
