Freelancers + ambitious creatives that volunteer + rest of the creative dept. get forced to come in the office in the weekend, twiddle their thumbs to "help out" as needed

We have a shared creative team of newer designers with a mentor who works on PR, internal projects and overflow from other teams, they also handle the new business slides as pitches come in. Most people are responsible for creating their own content but this group curates, refines, formats, finds the right voice and imagery. As they develop more capabilities they get promoted to other teams with dedicated clients/projects.

All pillaging

Raped and pillaged
