We spend much of our awake adult life in an office, so why not make it someplace you actually look forward to going to?
While cleaning out my office a little while ago for our office move, I shared all the crazy, useless, surprising, stupid, amazing and odd things I ran across. Particularly the odd, the weird and the inexplicable.
During that “office cleanse” (think a 5-day body cleanse, but longer and with MUCH bigger “crap” to get rid of – including getting the dirt and dust out of places that required me to find vacuum reviews sites to find the ideal cleaning solution – a new kind of portable vacuum I didn’t even know existed), besides the junk, I also discovered 40 pieces of art already framed that I decided we’d be hanging in our new offices. Roughly 90% of the artwork was my original art in the form of illustrations, designs and a couple of early oil painting when I was in my teens. The rest consisted of simply great posters I’d collected that I admired.
All that was about 3 months ago.
The Office: Your Virtual Tour
Now we have finally moved in. Thank you for coming.
I am thrilled. The colors, the art, the dark wood floor that goes the length of the 74-foot long wall of the office—they all make for a terrific environment to create amazing brands and help clients reach their aspirations.
If you were here, I’d make you an espresso.
Since you’re not, please make one or order an espresso, a machiatto or a cappuccino of your choice. I’ll wait….
OK. I see you have your beverage du jour. Excellent.
Here we go.
This is the front “reception area” as much as we have one, great for discussions, meetings, or the occasional reason to simply sit and laugh. (And yes, the artwork behind the couch is my artwork.) Here you can see the wood flooring that goes the length of the room, one of our favorite details!
Other Parts of the Front Office
Most of the artwork in this photo is personal artwork I created with a couple of pieces for El Paso Chile company thrown in.
The Rear Portion of the Office (starting with the amazing “burnt orange wall”)
Please note, we’d selected the wall color 4 weeks prior to discovering the matching couch shown above. It was pure luck that they matched, especially when you consider we did not have a swatch to compare it with. We just thought “it would look really cool.”
Artwork leading to the lavatory (I love using a word we as Americans think sounds “British”—plus it sound so much better than “the bathroom”). These are posters for the French Paper company with posters designed by Duffy Partners.
And here’s the office wall adjacent to where we enjoy a fine espresso, chocolate truffle or lunch.
And one wall, I HAD to explore and see what it might look like if I entertained a notion I had (the TOP is as it is, the BOTTOM is with this idea implemented):
There are other parts we’ve yet to photograph, but here’s what it looks like when we pull a shot of espresso during the day:
Thanks for coming by and checking out the new office space. See you soon.
