Great Place to unlearn to learn & upskill
Designers are lifelong learners. And a big part of becoming a designer & staying a lifelong learner is to master the art of unlearning.
At NetBramha, we place immense importance on learning the skill of unlearning. With unlearning comes freedom from assumptions, biases, & prejudices. To make sure our team keeps receiving healthy doses of learning & unlearning we have created a structured learning framework that empowers our team to stay sharp, relevant, & ever-evolving:
- Dedicated menter-mentee roles – Every designer in the studio is either mentoring designers or is a mentee of a senior designer. This ensures that in addition to the learning each designer receives through their work, they are also being mentored & honed in their respective design niches by senior designers who have been in the field for long. This also ensures that senior designers are able to pass on their collective knowledge & experiences to the junior designers & also in exchange learning a thing-or-two from them in return. This constant exchange of ideas & learnings pave the way for a rich learning-driven ecosystem and the team automatically keeps outperforming itself.
- Design Day – No growth is possible without a healthy level of competition among peers & hence we organize bi-monthly Design Days where designers showcase their latest work in terms of problem statements, design thinking, process, outcomes, challenges & learnings. These act as great learning sessions for designers to take inspiration from their peers’ works & learn best design practices & frameworks from their colleagues.
- Design Sessions – Not all designers are created equal. Some are great at user research while others have cracked the code to wireframing. Some are great visual storytellers while others have inborn talent of stakeholder management. We make sure that this knowledge is democratized for the entire team by organizing weekly learning sessions by designers where they demonstrate their skills, expertises, and nifty hacks that have worked for them so that the entire team collectively benefits from this.
- Webinars – We are also firm believers in sharing our cumulative learnings with the entire design & tech community thus we keep organizing webinars on a regular basis on various topics – ranging from design career masterclasses to service design thinking to even mental health for designers.
This constant, never-ending cycling of unlearning, learning & upskilling keeps our knowledge fresh & makes our team ready to face any challenge thrown at them. Practical insights, tips, recommendations, best practices, blueprints & more are shared with the team non-stop which easily translates into not just good but great work.
Great Place to collaborate & bond
One of the foremost things that empower an organization & help retain great talent is the culture. Culture refers to the values, beliefs, behaviors, and practices that are characteristic of an organization or workplace. It encompasses the shared attitudes and expectations of the people who work there, as well as the way work is performed and the level of collaboration and communication among employees.
For NetBramha Studios, culture & values are aligned to our bigger goals, mission, & vision – which is to impact 100% of the global population with our superpower of design & design thinking. This requires us to be not just firm believers but also undeterred practitioners of our values – Integrity, Compassion, Curiosity, Value-centric, Accountability, & Pursuit of Craftsmanship.
These make way for an ecosystem that fosters diversity, inclusion, & seamless collaboration despite our studio being 100% remote. As a Studio, when we decided to go permanently remote in 2020, we were able to onboard a larger, more diverse pool of talent from across the map & were not limited by physical restrictions of being in the same city.
Despite being on virtual channels, our team passed with flying colors on team spirit & camaraderie (factors on which NetBramha Studio scored the highest on Great Place To Work). And our regular offsite meet ups ensure we keep meeting face to face, sharing some of the best moments together as a team.
