    Pain Points Point to Opportunity

    This is an ongoing series, based on conversations with Bruce Mau, to help people working in the brand-experience medium embrace and apply the 24 Design Principles. I believe that spending time with these interrelated, non-linear habits of thinking can help us realize better outcomes - at work, in our personal lives, and in the world at large.

    When Outrageous Ideas Catch On | Freeman

    One of the most rewarding things in the world is seeing an outrageous idea come to life and enjoy so much success that it no longer seems outrageous. Almost eight years ago, Freeman leadership supported the outrageous idea of applying brand marketing concepts to the live experiences we produced.

Freeman – Why Work For Us?


We're a global company of thinkers, designers and doers. 

Make It Personal℠

A crowd of thousands is an audience of one

Our world thrives on personal connections. And our business is driven by them. It’s our mission to make the world a smaller place by creating moments that matter.
We believe meaningful experiences have the power to evolve brands, to build relationships, and to inspire action. The more connections that are made, the more impactful every experience becomes. We put people at the center — clients, partners, and attendees — and make it personal℠ for everyone.



Problem Solvers by Design

Thinking like designers starts with putting people first

Everyone on our team is committed to making a world of difference. How do we do it? By thinking like designers. Great design begins with empathy. We learn what makes people tick. We’re curious about the world around us. Careful observation into what motivates people informs how we design experiences for our clients.



Past, Present & Future

A history of service with an eye towards innovation

Our legacy in logistics is both our rock-solid foundation and the springboard to our future. We've been committed to staying ahead of the curve for our entire history. The accelerated pace of change means we’re on the move now more than ever before. We infuse technology with tenacity, and 90 years later we’ve emerged as a global leader in our industry. We're enthusiastic about the future and committed to making the world better for our employees, our partners, our clients, and the communities we serve.


Calling big thinkers, go-getters, get-it-done problem solvers. 

We're looking for the best and brightest talent to innovate the future of brand experience.

Inspiring others, every day
A culture of learning, growing, and innovating

From behind the scenes to client-facing and every stage in between, the hard work of thousands of employees contributes to our history of success. Our people look for every opportunity to learn and grow so we can deliver the best for our clients. The collaborative culture at Freeman attracts employees who enjoy working together to create meaningful connections between people and brands.

    I worked at Freeman full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work side by side with great people every day, and for a large company, management does a really good job of appreciating the employees.

    Cons

    Internal communication is sometimes lacking, and office politics unfortunately sometimes come into the mix, but that probably happens in a lot of large operations. Overall, no real complaints.

    Advice to Management

    The hours can be grueling...keep showing your people appreciation so they keep giving 100% to you and the clients.
