The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask – Jim Morrison
What if we (read Faasos) told you, you do not need to put on a mask and are allowed to be free-spirited and explore/pursue your passions while working with us?
Do not get judgmental already. Read on!
If you think about Faasos, the yellow and mauve (now black & white) immediately flashes in front of your eyes. One would still associate Faasos with one of the first few brands to introduce ‘Quirk’ into the food segment. The legacy continues.
Faasos has extended some of that quirkiness to its workplace. There are quite a lot of ‘firsts’ that we stand for. Here is a tale of two individuals who work with Faasos and love doing so. They stand testimony to the elbowroom that Faasos gives to all its employees to explore their individuality and depth beyond workspace.
Identification: Communication Designer
Vishal, aged 22, has a burning passion for photography and is constantly striving to capture the essence of everything around him. At Faasos, he is the go-to guy for food designing and shoots. He was approached by Koncept Wings, Dubai for a month-long photography project where his job was to capture renowned brands like Aldo, Tommy Hilfiger, Nine West etcetera. With a black box in his hand and sparkle in his eyes, he had all the motivation he needed to get out of his shell and live his dream.
“Obviously this (Koncept Wings) was something I had never done before. But that’s what you do about things you are passionate about. You take yourself out of the comfort zone and put yourself in front of challenges. Challenge your skills with no one but yourself. It was a great opportunity with a lot of value addition to my portfolio. I will always be thankful to Faasos for accommodating my request and helping me take a step towards achieving my dream”, says Vishal, Communication Designer, Faasos.
Faasos being Faasos supported him to the fullest and granted him the opportunity to live this dream.
