ethics

Every business has its core and values. Some principles underline how we work, communicate, do business and try to change our surroundings. I want to share my “Ethical Rules” and values to show what I stand for.

I work with businesses, organizations and other people who want to make an positive impact to our society. My visuals will support these messages and raise awareness on topics like sustainability, health, solidarity and fairness.

solidary

My colleagues and I always create something that is engaging, inclusive and therefore against exploitation and discrimination of others.

transparency

We work together as a team on eye-level: honesty and fairness are the basis of every good partnership. We won't create false expectations to "catch" people.

independent

SPURGO.de works in teams with other people but remains independent, because it gives me the freedom to keep myself non-conforming and innovative.

sustainable

Products and Organizations that don't care for our environment and the resources we all share won't get a glimpse of my skills. Sorry, not sorry!

challenging

"Status Quo" is something we need to challenge every day to come up with unique and innovative ideas that gives our society a positive turnaround.

purposeful

We work together to further good causes and make an positive impact to our society - not just for profits.

We will not do business with individuals or corporations that actively (or by design) engage in exploitation of humans, animals or the environment. This includes wage slavery or institutional racism as well as killing animals for profit or sports.

We will never do business with individuals or corporations that profit, invest or are in any ways connected to production or dealing of arms.

We support institutions that fight racism, anti-semitism, mysoginy or other forms of oppression.

SPURGO.de will not take part in design-contests or similar.

As a design-freelancer there are several obstacles in doing sustainable business. This includes the ongoing competition between creative minds that ruin each other’s businesses, because of those contest-driven selection process.

Whenever SPURGO.de teams up with others, we will establish the principle of consensus for every decision that is made to further the project: There must not be any objection (veto) by any of the team members.

As a vegan animal- and human rights activist, I am used to avoid unsustainable practices. This also includes my work as a designer and filmmaker: Whenever possible I search for eco-friendly alternatives for all necessary production steps (plastic- and/or waste-free utilities, vegan, ecologically and fair produced goods, energy-efficient equipment etc.).

On request, I will develop a transparent report of the project’s impact on our environment (positive or negative).

To get the best results, I will create a after our first conversation that frames our future project(s).

But sorry, there will be no free concept or similar.

I am active in two labor organizations that care deeply to create a work environment that includes and supports everyone. That’s why SPURGO.de supports growing movements that search justice along every individual.

If our partner has suppressed unionizing within their organization, I will refuse to work with this partner in the future. (Sorry, but not sorry!)
