WE'VE TEAMED up with Design One Consortium, a design and architectural firm that specializes in culture change, human-friendly workspaces and environmentally renewable resource use, in an effort to create better, more effective workspaces for newspapers.
Design One understands how people relate to their space and how to create an environment that works for people. And Creative Circle understands newsrooms – what they need, how they fail and even what their future might be. Now that’s a powerful combination.
WE HAVE LOTS OF IDEAS about how to integrate the web, multimedia and convergence into newsrooms. And this includes how to use technology better to communicate and reduce errors.
So don’t just hire a local firm or a big contractor who will have to start at ground zero to understand the needs of your staff. Hire a team of great architects who happen to have seasoned newsroom experts on their design team. That will save time and make for a much more effective and efficient design that works for everyone.
