Long time colleagues, Jen Cheyne (Jen Cheyne Design Ltd) and Rose Nola (Logic Design Ltd., Ngā Puhi/Ngātiwai) talk about their experiences and the pro’s and cons of home vs studio. Ways to make it work for you… or not, and what things might look like post lockdown.Working alongside each other since 2002, they have been through agency life, going out on their own in business, getting married, having 5 kids between them and navigating the challenges that brings. Some tips and insights to help with the fresh challenges we now face as designers and design business owners in the age of Covid-19. The new normal of working from home and how that is changing mindsets and the business landscape. Or will it? Will we go back to our old ways? What should we take with us into this new phase and what has this time and space taught us that we want to do differently. Thoughts and arguments for both sides that ultimately will be different for all. One thing we can all agree on though, is the importance of upholding and reinforcing the value of strategy and design through this uncertainty, how do we do this and the long-game benefits for businesses in what is certainly a difficult, but hopefully time for opportunity.
