Be Inspired By The Most Creative Office Spaces

Painting or decaling from the bottom of the wall over the tops of the ceiling gives the illusion of deeper, more expansive space.

Ceiling Lines

The parameters that define the word, “office cubicle” don’t have to be boring! This is a clever way to create collaborative workspace.

Large Cube

Boost morale with office maps where employees can pin their future and past vacation destinations. It can helps conversations thrive amongst employees about positive life experiences outside of the office.

Global Destinations

Ideas for a sustainable office, or one that has recyclable, eco-friendly, elements is a plus. For example, this wood plank reception desk is handmade and creates a simple and sleek element within the space.

If you have a lot of window space try creating an area of fragmented colors. You can draw inspiration from the primaries, or go with different photography filters such as black and white, sepia and infrared.

Colored Glass

A little inspiration from Nike’s HQ: branded picnic tables. If your company isn’t a retailer, what are the words that power your team?

Motivation You’re Ready For

We’re integrating our love of great typography with our passion for positivity. We’re here to remind you, our clients and candidates, of your value as an employee and in your personal life; because you deserve to be happy in and out of the office.

Sometimes we don’t go after the things we want because we make excuses. Could be fear of success or an underlying worry that you’re not ready. You are. And, the best part about being good is that there is only one ‘you’, making you hard to compete with.

If Not Now

You only think you’re not a screenwriter. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. You decide how your movie plays out and how much star power you have.

Life Is Like A Movie

Sometimes it’s hard when other people don’t listen. It’s trying when people are unfair. But you’re the class act who will always…

Rise Above It

What pays the bills is not always going to be what fuels your soul. Respect your paycheck and give your job everything but never give up on your passion. You can do both.

Don't Quit Your Day Dream

What’s your mantra?

Retro Logos: The Soda Can Edition

We’ve shared with you our favorite type design, and now we’re getting into what we love the most: vintage design and sugar. Soda has long been a fan favorite in terms of taste and eye candy. Pop evokes a sense of childhood nostalgia in all of us and brands have taken advantage, making their cans iconic.

Anyone remember these early 90’s Pepsi cans? Think: teenagers playing Pearl Jam and The Counting Crows, when the original Beverly Hills 90210 was the only option, and when the name, ‘Kardashian’, meant OJ Simpson’s lawyer.

This Sprite can is winning. We find it way more charming than the current options. Especially, “It’s A Natural.”

Sprite Can

Someone saved this Mountain Dew Can from the 1960’s. We’re loving the cartoon cowboy, but, in today’s society, the gun would be a risk brands can’t take.

These 7Up cans say disco & design.
