About the Project

We teamed up with Instrument, a Portland-based digital innovation agency, to create three short-form documentary stories for their client, Atlassian. 

Atlassian wanted to raise awareness of their brand by demonstrating how an open approach to work makes teams stronger, faster, and more capable of reaching their goals. Each piece tells the story of real people and teams who exemplify Atlassian’s guiding principles to “work open.” 

Working open means including divergent perspectives that amplify creativity, empowering people to bring their true self to work by viewing vulnerability among team members as an asset, and embracing a team’s diverse experiences and backgrounds as valuable because they’re different.
