An Insider's view of Artifact Uprising

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Our team works hard but also cares about one another’s personal lives, respecting that much-needed time away from our desks. Whether it’s to rest and recharge, go on a trip, or simply get up and walk the dog — our work-life balance matters. Because, after all, “you can’t do a good job if you’re job is all you do.”



How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Artifact Uprising we rally around our shared business goals. As a result, we have cross-departmental teams that determine how we achieve those goals. These groups become incredibly collaborative and spur conversations that have an impact on the business far outside the anticipated outcome.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

By encouraging them to find inspiration outside of the 4 walls of our office. We aim to be conscious observers of what’s happening in other visual areas: fashion, interior design, illustration, fine art, etc, to reinvigorate our creative energy.
