Clients: wishlist / blocklist

In the past we’ve worked on projects and with clients of all shapes and sizes—big and small, German and international, for-profit and non-profit. Every once in a while a project comes along that feels different, because it has a subject matter you find interesting, you can get behind the client’s mission or you simply connect to it on a deeper level. Whatever it is: These are the projects where you grow and deliver your best work. With Village One we want to do more of those projects, as well as being very up-front about our red lines.
