The Samahan Creative Team was founded as a collective initiative from the people who advocate real art and media. It began in 2008 and grew dramatically to be better than its former self and today, still continues this trend on being better.
It started with heart and in full spirit of brotherhood and became a well respected Creative Team in the the University of Ateneo de Davao. Noting its founding members who were the best in the business Lir dela Cruz, Rhyge Gradas, Eecee Gamalong, Shayla Abella, Donna Pingol, Paolo Villanueva, Ron Santos, JM Santillan, Kevin Gomez, Byron Pantoja, and more.
It grew and pioneered a new age of art and media and has introduced itself as the intersection of humanities and technology.
In it’s rich history since it’s birth it has produced media, advertising, posters, services, automation not only within the university but outside of it as well.
This team has proven that Ateneans with different backgrounds and different courses of different attitudes and personalities can come together and create something insanely great. Showing to the community that as aTEAM - Together Everyone Achieves More.
We have come a long way from our roots in 2008 towards 2012 and continue to grow to be better and efficient.
Today as the current head of the Samahan Creative Team, it with great honor that I introduce to you. The official new structure of the Samahan Creative Team organized by our senior members and approved by our very own newly elected Samahan President, Maureene Ann Villamor.
In the Creative Team we believe in the complete integrated package of products from its inception to deployment, because we want to give students the best experience possible by making things, hassle free and simple.
So today along with the introduction of the new structure I am happy to present to you a new division within the Creative Team, the “Kaizen Division” to be headed by Mr. Brent Jimenez.
“Kaizen” is Japanese is “improvement” and we believe we can offer this improvement to the best of our ability. Kaizen will be in charge of handling the transition of old systems to complete automated systems within the Samahan and the school. It will be made by the students for the students.
This division was born after the innovation the team has made in regards to the First Automated School Elections in Mindanao and various other automation systems in the Samahan. Keeping with the motto of it’s project head Nitish Khemani to not be the game player, but be the game changer. We think this division will change the game on how we do things, so we can focus more on the task at hand rather than preparing for that task.
I will continue to be an advisor to the creative team in the transition period along with the recently graduated senior members this summer. As well as keeping my duties to update you on our projects and new endeavors. We hope you are as excited as we are for the new stuff coming soon.
As Henry Ford puts it
“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
Thank you and God Bless.
