2019 Culture SuperStar Award
Feb 2019  |  HomeAway
HomeAway's 'Cultural Superstar' award is a peer-nominated award that recognize employees who’ve embodied one or more of our values in their daily work or on a particular project.

Guiding Principles:
Put Yourself in the Shoes of our Customers and Partners
Be Open and Honest

“Clarice worked tirelessly on 2018 Partner Summit design assets. She collaborated with many people on this work, which was a massive undertaking (as it is every year). She remained open, honest, and positive even under stress, and used her own professional knowledge to shape the creative direction. Her designs were both beautiful and customer-centric, and reflected our brand without being a facsimile of other design work. It's an honor and a pleasure to collaborate with someone so skilled in both design and communication.
