We place great value in each collaborative relationship we have cultivated over time
Since collaboration is at the very core of every successful project we complete, Raven Vanguard is always interested in laying the foundation for new and interdependent artistic and creative relationships with like-minded local, regional, national and international artists, artisans, craftspeople, audio designers, contractors, material suppliers, gallery owners and other similar businesses. One of our core beliefs is that one-of-a-kind, custom-made and handcrafted achievement depends upon our ability to foster cooperative teamwork within our ever-growing community of skilled collaborative partners.
The founders of Raven Vanguard believe in team building and mentoring. We also believe it is indispensable to our future success to make, develop and facilitate connections with other businesses, entrepreneurs, and start-ups. While economic competition in the marketplace and individual achievement serve important purposes, we believe collaboration and shared success ultimately serve more important purposes and provide longer-lasting benefits.
Therefore, as a business and as the entrepreneurs who stand behind it, we place great value in each collaborative relationship we have cultivated over time. In part, it is because of the strength of these keystone relationships that Raven Vanguard now exists and can flourish. When values, principles, purposes, perspectives, and commitment are aligned, clearly understood, and commonly shared, collaboration and cooperation will always lead to abundance and success for each participating team member. We even think that occasional differences of opinion among and between respectful, collaborative partners serve necessary and important purposes because the amicable resolution of opposing viewpoints usually leads to opportunities for new, or even better, ideas, means, or methods all to the benefit of the client and the project.
In the design profession, and in the building industry, word of mouth is often the best form of advertising and direct referrals are critical to long-term prosperity. Raven Vanguard prides itself on being highly referable, and we place enormous value in the presence of this same quality in our colleagues and any prospective future partner or relationship.
In deciding whether to collaborate with another person or business, we believe five qualities are non-negotiable: integrity, trust, passion, skill, and a strong work ethic. In the same manner, our professional reputation is non-negotiable, and we will never compromise it, nor will we allow it to be jeopardized by the conduct of others.
We practice cross-marketing and cross-promotion and make every effort to increase the visibility of each one of our team members and to cross-generate business opportunities within our network. Because successful high-end design projects result from the combined efforts of an interconnected team of people and not from the efforts of any one individual standing alone, we also believe it is critically important to share the limelight with each member of our team and to actively spotlight their creative contributions to every project we are a part of.
