Long halls , rows of desks, computers, white lights illuminating monotonous work and worked up employees… sounds familiar to any workplace??
Not for us at DQ… for starters it not an office it’s our studio:)!
It’s a small place with white walls and yellow doors. With minimal interior work nothing is overdone hence it may look small but it’s not cramped up. It is a proud all women enterprise, a quarry to delve deeper into creativity to fetch out
gems. Deeper you go brighter it gets.
For the little while I have worked here, I have got a chance to work in varied areas like research, nomenclature, tagline, logos, branding, brand manuals etc….And i have learnt a score of things, right form simple software command to importance of brand language.
Because I am not as yet kicked out, I would like to believe I can learn more at DQ(haha!)…On a serious note though, DQ has given me opportunity to work on variety of projects when I had absolutely no experience in any of it. Being an engineer who opted to not go for an IT job, I understand the importance of getting a job in a field of my interest.
While I need to take time to learn and understand things, Priya ,my colleague likes to have new projects everyday. She loves the different projects she gets to work on. For her it’s the more the varied, the merrier. But the one thing we feel in unison is that we like our work and workplace. If there is something I am not able to understand I can go straight up and ask for help…I don’t get
yelled at, I get guided. Priya has the liberty to work on something else when she is stuck on one thing for long.
To sum it up, Thank you DQ for letting me through the yellow door. Thank you for letting me stay and learn. For whatever course I take up in design, DQ is always going to be the place where I started.
