Office Space

In general, graphic designers are fortunate to work in some of the world's most impressive and well-designed workspaces. Unfortunately, I haven't quite gotten to that point yet. As I sit here in the marketing department, I look around at the drab purple/gray walls, matching gray cubicles, harsh overhead lighting and think to myself, how am I supposed to be inspired under these conditions? I've done my best to make it a little more creative by putting up colorful paper on the walls of my cube and vow to only use artful notebooks while everyone else uses yellow legal pads, but that's just not enough! If you've been following this blog for awhile you might have picked up on a common theme - I often dream of the ideal interior space that will house CrewDesign when it is finally established (and it WILL be established one day). Just my luck, I recently came across This Ain't No Disco, a blog solely devoted to featuring amazing interiors of advertising and design firms around the world. As far as offices go, firms such as these really do know how to do it best. So until I can work in a real studio, living vicariously through this blog will have to do... ••••

I don't want to brag, but I will. My office is pretty righteous; its LEED certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Naturally its very green and made with a lot of renewable materials. Its not like my desk is made from an abandoned tree stump or anything, but nice just the same.
