Stories are the coding of any company. By that we mean this: they’re behind everything. Stories are in email threads, in meeting invites, in calendar reminders. Stories are in beautiful build files, in critical user journeys, in sprints, in TL;DRs, and in GVCs. Stories are so integral to the structure of a company that often, we forget they’re there, the invisible wiring that connects us with our colleagues and coworkers. In this case, the Googlers and Nooglers – those at the next desk over, and those on the opposite side of the globe.
In 2020, we teamed up with our incredible creative partners at Google to deliver a series of internal-comms projects. First and foremost, we wanted to connect with the humans at Google, to stoke a little flame in the tools and materials they relied on everyday. Our larger goal was to uncover the stories that could unite, educate, and inspire Google’s global network of engineering teams: the hundreds of thousands of Google employees across all corners of the world. We aptly named our Revery x Google Team Campfire: we were listening, learning, and telling stories together – and, by necessity, doing it differently each day.
