Since mid-March, #TeamLenz has been working at home to ensure the safety of our team. It wasn’t an easy decision to leave our offices in Decatur Square and transition to working remotely, but our employees were dedicated to doing our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
To celebrate how our incredible workers stay productive during these trying times, we created a social media series, “Desk of the Day.” This series features photos of our work-from-homes spaces, and gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how our team members continue to do incredible work for all of our clients, even in the face of a pandemic.
Check out the series below!
Ben Barnes, Creative Director
“I use this space for my personal art projects as well as my daily work so it’s part art supply storage, part workspace. My desk is actually a giant light table covered in cutting mats that I use for larger x-acto projects. It’s been very inspiring working in this environment as I typically have limited time to spend here. The walls around my desk are a gallery for my kid’s art projects which I love seeing every day. I hate the circumstances that have caused us to be working remotely, but I love all the extra time I get to spend with my wife and kids.”
Carey Blankenship, Digital Content Specialist
“Since I’m a fiction writer too, I’ve already got an incredible work from home space. For those struggling with this new reality, I find what really helps is being strict about your schedule BUT also finding ways to squeeze in what you love. Light a candle, wear a comfy blanket, but also eliminate distractions like TV or Animal Crossing (which I’m playing a lot of as soon as work is over!)”
Christine Mahin, Accounts and Operations Director
“Growing up an only child, I always craved alone time, so it has come as a real surprise to me how desperately I miss my Lenz work family. But it’s made every phone call I have with my teammates so much more special and meaningful.
There are absolutely benefits from working at home (I’m looking at you, Lulu Lemon pants), but I can’t wait to get back into the office and collaborate with my friends and coworkers.”
Meagan Maron, Account Manager
“After a recent move to a smaller space, I got rid of my desk. So, when it came time to set-up a home office for social distancing, I had to get creative and work with what I had. I cleared off my grandmother’s antique table in the corner of my room and pulled out an old stool from childhood for an office chair.
My mousepad is a Father’s Day gift I gave my dad when I was little. He gave it back to me when I got my first job. I used my Art History textbook to give the monitor extra height. All of these items make my working from home space cozy and comforting.”
Anna Laura McGranahan, Media Coordinator
“I’m definitely missing Team Lenz, but I’ve been spending a lot of time with my furry coworker, Percy. The desk I had in my room was too small for my work monitors, so I ended up moving my kitchen table into my bedroom and it’s working great! I hope everyone is staying safe and well. We’ll get through this together!”
Lizzi Skipper, Web Developer
“Working from home is challenging, but it also pushes me to be more innovative in ways I communicate with coworkers and clients. The best part is being able to work in PJs and having daily emotional support from my furry friends!”
Annice Wyatt, Intern
“I started working at Lenz about two weeks before we began working remotely. I was definitely nervous at first — being so new to the company. However, communication and productivity are at an all-time high. We are all getting so much amazing work done for our clients. Working with such an incredible team of people has been a major highlight and honor even during these challenging times.”
