Tim Girvin on Ambition

“So far, I’ve gone to great lengths to ‘get out there, and get in there,’ to explore first-hand renderings of culture, messaging and design style to comprehend my clients — and in a rudimentary mapping of journey, that’s taken me to Jakarta, Indonesia; Beijing, China; Tokyo and Osaka Kobe, Japan; Mexico City and Acapulco, Mexico; Paris and Provence, France; Calgary and Montreal, Canada; Paro, Bhutan, New Dehli, India; all four compass points of the US,  and dozens of other points in-between to find the heart and soul of the brand, the people that work on it, and the audiences their products serve. Point is — to know, you need to be there, to be — you need to walk that road.”  - Tim Girvin, Principal, Girvin, Inc., Seattle, San Francisco, New York City and Tokyo
