You thought we were weird already? You ain’t seen nothin’
They say you’re only as good as your team, and that’s something we truly believe here at MadeBrave®. We like to think we’re the best at what we do, which is why, when it comes to hiring, we look for those who are best at what they do, to make what we do even better – are you following? Anyway, apart from super skills and proven experience of being bloomin’ brilliant, we always look for something extra, a certain ‘piece de resistance’ that makes a MadeBraver. The way we see it, you spend a lot of time with the people you work with (welcome to agency life!) so you may as well build a team of like-minded, creative folks who have a few things in common. To give you an idea, here are the top 10 characteristics of a MadeBraver…
#1 Shiny Happy People
Positivity is a BIG deal here at MadeBrave® (so BIG we put it in caps – twice). Get those gnashers out and flash a smile – a MadeBraver’s vocabulary is made up of more “Yeses” than Meg Ryan in that scene from When Harry Met Sally.
#2 Movie Quotes
Basically anything from Anchorman, The Lion King or Toy Story – we’re big fans of movies here at MadeBrave®. Apparently, quoting movies improves creativity and the intellectual bond between colleagues: They’ve done studies you know, 60% of the time, it works every time.
#3 Volume Control
It’s a very specialist skill, but basically – we need to be loud enough to talk over the rabble of creative minds spilling all over the shop and then quiet enough when clients are in or someone’s in the middle of a very important, professional phone call. It sounds a lot easier than it is, trust us.
#4 Hey Good Lookin’
There’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good looking, but it’s a good place to start. Whether it’s a cheeky twinkle in the eyes or a killer set of dimples, there’s a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ about MadeBravers and we like to think we’re experts at the old blue steel.
#5 Whatcha Got Cookin?
If you’re going to be a part of our team – you’ve gotta’ eat. We’re feeders here at MadeBrave® (and eaters too – mostly anything of the Mexican persuasion) so more often that not, jeans start feeling a wee bit tighter as the months go by.
We refuse to play it safe and never accept mediocrity. We’re the type of people who thrive on a challenge and every day, our mission is to push the boundaries of the so-called norm.
#7 Sing Sing Sing
We’re those people who repeat what you have just said with a relevant song lyric (sorry, it’s in our blood). We have music playing through the studio all-day, every day from our fancy-shmancy Linn System – so don’t be surprised if there’s the occasional outburst/air grab at the pinnacle point of a power ballad.
#8 We Love Lamps
And decor in general. We’re a wee bit obsessed with interiors (it’s a design thing) and the unboxing of new bits and bobs for the studio becomes a bit of an event – pretty much on the same par as welcoming a newborn home for the first time. You’ll often find us randomly kissing lamps in a corner when we’re feeling particularly emotional.
Our aim is to inspire creativity in everyone. Whether it’s in-house or with other people, we celebrate the talents of others – there’s enough room for everyone to be successful and if there’s any way we can help to make that happen, we will.
#10 MadeBrave® Fan
For us, MadeBrave® is more than a job – it’s a culture. We’re all big fans of MadeBrave® in general and feel genuinely proud to work here. We get out of our beds every morning knowing we’ll be heading to a creative space to work with some of the most talented people we know on amazing projects that genuinely excite us. Not bad eh?
