What’s a design team doing in the kitchen?
The Decca Design team recently took a day away from the office to connect and team build by making antipasto at the Community Kitchen. In this commercial facility with four stoves blazing and all the tools and equipment imaginable, we got to chopping.
Everyone at Decca enjoys cooking, entertaining and most importantly, eating! Often you will find us doing all of these things together. It’s a great way for us to interact, express our thanks to fellow team members and become rejuvenated and inspired. This in turn motivates us to create outstanding designs for our clients.
Design brings people together.
Cooking brings people together.
The Decca Design team is more than colleagues. We consider ourselves a close-knit family.
