We ran the Manga team experience with YumTum to celebrate a launch, and it was absolutely amazing! I loved the way they facilitated the experience as they helped expose a side of people you don’t get to see when you’re working together. You get to see people’s creativity, you get to see what they get excited about and energized about. It was fantastic to watch people, have a laugh, and engage with one another, which is so nice! Highly recommend to other dev teams!!!
At Atlassian, we’ve been working fully remotely since COVID started. I’ve been on the hunt for good remote team party options, and came across the Team Manga Portrait experience. It was the smoothest, most enjoyable remote experience my team has participated in. Everyone involved was super friendly and the experience itself was both unique and perfectly suited for a remote team. Everyone was able to get involved, and the lasting impact of having a cute drawing of yourself brings a nice bit of connectedness to our remote work lives.
