When it comes to forging a successful company, it helps to have an established ethos that your employees can work and live by. The video game publisher Ubisoft Montreal has taken this concept to a whole new level by slapping its 'seven pillars of creativity' on the studio wall.

You can read all about the new games coming from the studio over at Kotaku, but one interesting tidbit that caught our eye was the below plaque which lists Ubisoft Montreal’s '7 Pillars Of Creativity' -- helpfully translated into both French and English to cater to the studio's bilingual workforce.
Each 'pillar' helps to shape and characterise the games Ubisoft are famous for but the values could be just as easily applied to any number of workplaces. The importance of teamwork, keeping an open mind at all times and celebrating successes in style? Those are ideals that we can get behind.
