“The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.”
— Charles de Gaulle
Albeit the fearless leader French general and statesman Charles de Gaulle was, the Tribe only partly shares the sentiment of de Gaulle’s iterate in regard to man, and man’s best friend.
We love people. Building Tribe’s for our partners, is after all — our mission. However, we can’t help but give credit to the lovable four-legged (and one finned) companions that grace the house on a seemingly, more regular basis.
It’s an extra special day whenever Tribe members Josie, Rachel or Hannah bring their dogs, Gino, Blue and Max to work. Each doggo has their own distinct personality, but all of them incite the same joy and childlike excitement when we hear the patter of paws going up or down the staircase. There is also George, our resident life aquatic beta, whose tank of revolving graphic art brings alternative life to the Design Tribe space.
Meet Tribu’s best friends:
Gino’s hooman is our very own Project Manager and Social Media Maven, Josie Lugo. Gino makes the Tribu house a home. I personally consider him the 16th member of the Tribe. Gino was named after Spurs shooting guard Manu Ginobili, and although he may be small, his personality is as big as his six-foot-six namesake. Gino is tenacious. He isn’t afraid to see which Tribe Partner has just walked through the door, speedily hopping down the stairs to greet them. We love you G.
Blue has a face that will melt your heart. This little stud belongs to our Digital Department Manager Rachel. Like Rachel, Blue has kind yet mischievous eyes. Both Blue and Rachel are not afraid to test the limits, which is why they are both so much fun to be around. Your my boy Blue.
The newest member of the pack is Max. Like his owner Hannah, he is quiet but strong. Despite his size, Max has the most gentle demeanor. It is adorable to see this gentle giant get excited. I recently found out Max is scared of lightening, that makes two of us. I look forward to getting to know this canine gentlemen and scholar.
By George, I think he’s got it! This beta is sexy and he knows it. By the acrobatic poses George does in his tank (when he knows someone is watching) you would think he was trying to make it to the finals of America’s Next Top Beta. George says hello Tyra, queue the fish smize. Stefan keeps George’s tank crazy, sexy, cool with a new graphic background every week. Only the best for our cool marine buddy.
Collectively, these little guys help the Tribe maintain our carefree Millennial spirit. This spirit is what helps Tribu continue to create the elevated, data-driven and award-winning work that reaps industry acclaim and results for our Partners.
