Critter Q&A: Looking Back on Year 2

  • November 8, 2017

As you might have heard, we celebrated our 2nd birthday this year here at Fox&Co (Happy Birthday to us)! From many late nights and amazing projects to marketing interns and Friday team lunches, it has definitely been a year for the books. Speaking of which, we all sat down and had a think about the past year and reflected on our favourite jobs, personal goals and what we think is next for the Fox&Co crew. So, grab a cup a coffee, sit back and get to know the critters a bit better below. Enjoy!

Melissa, The Doe

This 2nd year in a word:

Lit AF.

Greatest achievement as an individual:

I think my greatest achievement so far on my Fox&Co journey has been jumping in head first…with everything. From leading the team on my third day (the boss man was on holiday) to managing projects, designers and interns all at once. Not to mention I was in the middle of settling in a new country on the other side of the world (I’m originally from Portland, Oregon). But more specifically, because we are a small team, we get a lot of say when it comes to the future of the company – which is something really special because I’m very passionate about growing Fox&Co and taking it to the next level. So to be a part of company that has the potential that we do and the fact that I can have a direct role in helping that potential thrive, is probably my greatest achievement here to date.

The most memorable quote at the office:

“Everyone’s a pickle. PICKLE RICK.”

Greatest achievement as a team:

We’ve worked on some pretty big projects together and nothing beats the feeling of pressing submit on the final send off (knock on wood that it’s actually the final send off lol). It’s pretty amazing how we all come together during a huge job and are working towards the same goal, especially on jobs that are high pressure and that we’ve invested a lot of our time into. In terms of specific achievements, I would say finding our team’s working groove and really nailing down our ability to get shit done. It’s not something that happens overnight, and it’s a process that we’ve been really working to improve. Slowly but surely, we’ve found our magic touch.

Why are you happy to come to work every morning:

Aside from the awesome work we get to do, it definitely has to be the people. #Workfam would be an understatement. Which I suppose is a good thing since we spend more time here than we do at home.

Which client would you love to work for next year:

I would love to expand more into different cities such as Auckland, Melbourne and even the west coast of the States. There are heaps are creative agencies in those areas that I’d love to work with, but in terms of a specific company I think it would be really cool to work with Nike. There are so many avenues we could go with them, but it would be amazing to work with their Nike Los Angeles team who are consistently pushing out edgy content within the sports, hip-hop and fashion realms.

Favourite Friday lunch place:

We’ve definitely been around the block when it comes to Friday lunch spots, but I’d have to say that I’d be happy going to Five Boroughs every Friday if it came down to it. That chicken burger. Suh good.

How many cups of coffee per day on average:

Probably 2-3 cups of plunger coffee, and maybe a cheeky flat white here and there. Gimme alllll the coffee.

Hamish, The Raccoon
The 2D guy

This 2nd year in a word:

MentalCrazyFun.

Greatest achievement as an individual:

Answering these questions.

The most memorable quote at the office:

“Little Bits”

 

Greatest achievement as a team:

5 straight wins playing Paladins.

Why are you happy to come to work every morning:

Free Coffee and i guess the work is fun too..

Which client would you love to work for next year:

Cartoon Network.

Favourite Friday lunch place:

At the Pub…

How many cups of coffee per day on average:

5 – 15.

Callum, The Deer
Motion Designer

This 2nd year in a word:

Exhausilarating (exhausting & exhilarating).

Greatest achievement as an individual:

My greatest achievement is helping build the Fox&Co brand. I have contributed a lot towards the website and branding of Fox&Co and still continue to do so. This made me understand the company morals and goals and makes me proud to be apart of the journey thus far.

The most memorable quote at the office:

“PIIIICKLE RIIIICK” – Everyone at Fox&Co.

 

Greatest achievement as a team:

I think our greatest achievement is being able to stay calm and not flip out at each other when we’re working on a project late and have a tight deadline.

Why are you happy to come to work every morning:

I am happy because I am working in the field that I love and am surrounded by encouraging and inspiring people everyday.

Which client would you love to work for next year:

I would love to work for Nike. They are always keeping up with trends and producing edgy fresh designs and dope animations.

Favourite Friday lunch place:

The Ramen Shop.

How many cups of coffee per day on average:

Well, It was zero a few months ago.. But now around 2.
