Questions for the Intern…

Every new staff member at Daake answers a handful of questions when they start. The answers to these standard “icebreaker” questions help us introduce the new team member to the rest of the crew. But, for our design intern Jase, we decided to mix it up the process a little.

Instead of him being the only one to answer the questions, the rest of us sat down beforehand and wrote our own answers to what we thought he might say. That said, Jase has been a good sport and has (so far) put up with our teasing. Glad to have you on board Jase!

 

(Caution: If you are tall and offended by snarky height jokes, we are so, so sorry)
