Mission Statment



'I remember reading, or maybe being told, that you need to have a mission statement in life, some things you hold dear and believe in. You then need to put this where you and others can find and read it.' - Simon Breeze, founder of Cimmerian Studios  

So, here they are:  

We have six core values that represent the principles and beliefs that guide Cimmerian Studios and our work. These values are important to us and we do our best to reflect them in our decisions and actions every day.

Dream Big
Every Voice Matters
Deliver WOW
The Buck Stops HERE
Embrace the Inner Fan
Our Work is Never Done
Dream BIG


It's important for us, the artwork, ideas and services to be bold and daring...
Working in an imagination fuelled environment, creating visionary worlds, larger than life characters, epic stories, beautiful art, innovate games and basically blowing the lid of the box of the world as we know it. You’ve got to be adventurous, and you’ve got to dream big. It is essential and at the core of everything we do. 
  

 Every Voice Matters
Fundamentally, we believe that openness and honesty make for the best relationships...
We value strong relationships in all areas: with the art community, customers, business partners, and friends. Strong, positive relationships that are open and honest are a big part of what differentiates us from most others. In any relationship, it's important to be a good listener as well as a good communicator because great ideas can come from anywhere. For that reason we respect the opinions and ideas of others, just as much as our own.


Deliver WOW
We live in a world where anything is possible...
WOW is such a short, simple word; nevertheless it really encompasses a lot of things. To WOW, you must differentiate yourself, which means must do something that's above and beyond what's expected. We are not average, our world is not average, and we want to deliver the best experience and make our creations as fun as possible for as many people as we can reach.


The Buck Stops HERE
People won’t remember whether the work was late, only whether it was great...
Living with responsibility makes us stronger and more action-oriented individuals. It’s up to us as individuals to make change and take responsibility for outcomes in our lives. We approach each task carefully and seriously while respecting the cultural diversity that makes people unique. We seek honest feedback and use it to improve the quality of our work and never accept or be too comfortable with the status quo.


Embrace the Inner Fan
We are not a people that like to feel corporate and boring...
We do this job for two reasons. One reason is because we are privileged and lucky enough to have the wonderful opportunity to do so. The other reason is that we are fans. Fans of science fiction, fantasy, comics, pop culture, technology, miniatures, games…. We're passionate about it. It’s important that we embrace this passion, because we're creating worlds and characters for us, just as much as we are creating them for our customers, business partners and the art community – our culture is one of enthusiasm, creativity and fun!


Our Work is Never Done
We believe in working hard and putting in the extra effort to get things done...
We must never settle for "good enough" because good is the enemy of great. We set and exceed our own high standards, constantly raising the bar for others and for ourselves; we value passion, determination, and perseverance. We're inspired because we believe in what we are doing and where we are going. We don't take "no" or "that'll never work" for an answer. Passion and determination are contagious. We believe in having a positive and optimistic, but realistic, attitude about everything we do because we realize that this inspires others to be the same.
