In March 2020, NVIZ packed our desks to set up shop and work from home; thanks to our tremendous tech team for the smooth transition. As millions did around the world, we were thinking we'd be back in the office in just a few weeks. As the coronavirus pandemic continued, weeks turned into months, and the working from home life has become our new normal. Despite working remotely the NVIZ team have really pulled together and morale has been kept high amongst colleagues. We'd like to introduce to you some of our talented and passionate team members, to see how they've been finding lockdown life and working from home...
Meet Agueda del Castillo, a 2D Lead/2D Supervisor at NVIZ. “What I miss the most about communal working is definitely the people at NVIZ! I count some of my colleagues as dear friends. I miss sharing moments hanging in the kitchen with a cup of coffee in the morning, or going out for lunch, or for an after work beer... those things.” #wearenvizathome
Meet Jakob Lundbye, CG/Unreal Generalist at NVIZ. “In our generation we are lucky to have the opportunities to video call with friends and family and have virtual pub quizzes, Easter lunch and combat training. This form of communication was not a possibility in past world crises. The weeks have been passing rapidly for me.” #wearenvizathome
