Using collaborative design to create a vibrant and inclusive office.

 

Gusto’s office space had reached a breaking point in 2017 — our small startup had outgrown its humble home and we were continuing to expand. We secured a new (old) space, a historic ship repair warehouse in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood, and got working on our new home.

My teammate Jason and I dug deeper into the needs of the employees and explored unique ways to bring the Gusto culture into the new space, while creating a system we could infuse into future offices.

I shared a deep dive into the process in a Medium post.

You can also watch my talk on the office design project and the business impact of design, given at a design event hosted by Designer Fund and Gusto.
