At Liquid, good is not good enough.
Working at Liquid is more than just a job. The agency is made up of people that are dedicated and passionate about branding, design, and innovation. It’s part of our culture and our DNA. We don’t just preach Silicon Valley Thinking—we live it. We reach higher and push ourselves farther. Because, that’s how things get interesting. That’s where the fun begins. Simply put, we just don’t think good is good enough. We think our clients deserve more, and that’s why we shoot for amazing.
The Liquid Core Values.
When Liquid was started, we published a set of Core Values as a way to articulate who we are and how we behave. Our Core Values are: Confident Leadership, Refreshing Creativity, Maximum Efficiency, and Amazing Experience. Today, over a decade later, these values remain intact. We look for these values in the people we hire, and we use these values in our performance evaluations. Our core values are not just words on paper. They drive our work, our culture, our thinking, and our actions.
The Amazing Awards.
This year we initiated the Amazing Awards as a way to recognize the individuals that most exemplified the values each quarter. The winners were selected by the employees of Liquid through an online voting mechanism that also encouraged people to write a story about each employee and the reason why they were nominated. The stories were read at our company meeting, which is when we announced the winners—to much applause and sincere appreciation from everyone present. Each winner was handed an award that will sit on their desk—and their name will be etched onto a permanent award that will be displayed in the lobbies of our offices.
Congratulations to our Q4/2012 winners!
