Gecko Designs’ Staff Current Favorite Songs

February 1, 2022 Adam Office Culture

William Cowper once said, “variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor” and the staff at Gecko Designs is about as spicy as it comes.

When I first started working for Gecko Designs, I immediately felt at home and was welcomed into the family with open arms. Over the course of my first year with the company, I have found countless areas that we all have in common – an important piece to the puzzle when it comes to a healthy work culture. What I didn’t realize, at first, was how wildly diverse we are as a team, as well!

With 11 people on staff, coming from all walks of life, we thought it would be fun to try a little social experiment. I asked each of them to tell me what their current favorite song is, so that I could compile a music playlist to reflect our tastes. I was shocked to see how eclectic the list was!

Even the responses to my request varied. Take a moment to think about it. If I asked you to give me a song, just one, that was your current favorite – forget about your all-time favorite song, that question seemed to derail the experiment as there are way too many to choose from – would you be able to quickly come up with a song? Some of our staff were able to give me an answer right away, while others tried to negotiate; “Does it have to be just one song?”…”Can I give you a song from a few different genres?”…”Can I get back to you? This is going to take some heavy soul searching.”

It turns out that our motley crew (pun intended) of designers, developers, and project managers have something in common – but it certainly isn’t our tastes in music! It’s our passion for that which makes us smile inside and out. Though not all of us enjoyed every song that was submitted by our fellow staffers, we all laughed and appreciated the insight that the experiment provided into what we’re all bopping away to in our AirPods. We’ll see what happens when I open Pandora’s Box and ask what their favorite foods are!

So, here is the list of the current favorite songs from Gecko Designs staff!

Now, I present the question to you! If you had to choose one song that is your current favorite, what would it be?

Gecko Designs is one of the best vendors I've ever hired and worked with in more than 15 years of education and advocacy communications. The work of our nonprofit organization is complex, and they have done exceptional work to help us make what we do clear to a broader external audience. Everyone we've worked with on their team has brought focus, expertise, intelligence, and fun to our work together. I look forward to many more projects with Gecko in the future!

Working with Gecko in managing our site (Yellowstone Forever) has been an incredibly positive experience. They have offered and implemented countless solutions and updates to our site. And provide training so that we may also implement site changes internally. They have always provided quality, professional service and in a timely manner. Couldn’t be happier.

Because the service we received greatly exceeded our expectations; I wish more stars could be added to this Gecko review. When our firm, Briggs Architecture, relocated to Missoula in 2016, our website and brand did not reflect the desired image. Gecko listened to us, understood our mission, and helped us breakdown what seemed to be an insurmountable problem into manageable pieces and then brought it all together creatively. Gabe, Melissa, Kate and the whole Gecko team continue to update our website and manage our Google presence. They are very professional and fun to work with and I am more than happy to refer Gecko as the best provider with whom we've worked.

We were so happy to find Gecko Designs at Yellowstone Forever when looking for a new company to take over management and design of our nonprofit website! They understood the intricacies of working with nonprofits and jumped right in to help us ensure our site was up to date. They are quick to come to the table to solutions and ideas, and bring the creative mindset we were looking for!
