Based in Cologne, Germany, the social media analytics platform quintly is built with an international audience. That audience is reflected in its own work environment, with a team of people who come from many different places and cultural backgrounds across the globe.
One of my projects at quintly was to design a specialized world map for the quintly headquarter's meeting room to emphasize their international workplace and mission.
The world map not only included broader "iconic" landmarks and quintly's main offices in San Francisco and Cologne.but also feature landmarks that bore cultural and emotional significance to quintly's team and clients.
Each team member was invited to select an icon that was meaningful to them. I personally chose the "landmark" of Mt. Verstovia from my own hometown of Sitka, Alaska on the map.
