Ever wonder how much work it takes the Kakao Friends to make their adorable stickers?
In a company culture that values collaboration and community, Mind Tree is another way for Daum Kakao members to work closely together.
Daum Kakao’s photography club was founded by AJ Lee and Jess Lee (no relations) a year and a half ago. The club was originally named KakaoShot, but they’re looking for a new moniker that better suits the company post-merger.
Last month they had the idea to show off the club’s work in an in-house exhibition, and set up the display over a few days.
Daum Kakao had a lot to celebrate this year.
Obviously, there was the big merger in October, but we also had a number of large and small milestones that made 2014 a truly unforgettable year for everyone at Daum Kakao.
To celebrate all of that, as well as the coming New Year, we threw a company-wide year-end party on December 30th. Below is a little photo essay of the scene at our Hannam office so you can share the good times. Cheers!

On November 24th, we welcomed 15 delegates from Indonesia to our Pangyo offices as part of the 2014 Jakarta-Seoul Sister City Exchange Program. Members of the Jakarta Sister City Youth Program, comprised mostly of students from top universities, and officials from the Sports and Youth Department of Jakarta visited Daum Kakao as part of their 10-day program, which offers participants the opportunity to gain in-depth understanding of Korea’s various key sectors
Space.1, a part of Jeju Science Park, and now Daum Kakao’s official headquarters, was completed in April 2012. The building is (if we do say so ourselves!) something to be taken in, architecturally. Designed by the firm Mass Studies, the building is mainly horizontal in orientation, which the firm wanted to reflect the company culture. The building is set into a slope and was designed to fit organically in the center of its large, green campus.
The Hope School in Bardhaman, Bengal, India This weekend, 10 Daum Kakao members will head to India for a very important meeting. The long flight will bring them to the Bardhaman region of Bengal, India where each Daum Kakao member will meet the special students of the ninth Daum Kakao Hope School.
