First off, thank you so much for sticking with us this week even though we’ve been completely absent online. It was not our intention but between me starting a new job and then us jetting out of town in the middle of the week for an awesome soccer game (that had us driving home at 1 AM!) in Kansas City, we are definitely more than a little behind on sleep and the rest of our lives.
I wanted to share a few pics of my new office, because I am absolutely in love with it. I’ve always noticed that designers tend to end up wherever there is room left, and although that was probably the case with my new office/team, they’ve really made it work. Our office is located in an attic that used to house a local campus radio station. It has short ceilings and tiny pocketed areas, and while some people might find that a little claustrophobic, I absolutely love its feeling of privacy and seclusion.
Scrabble game anyone?
A view of my desk, it’s still a work in progress.
I know Neil and I never really talk about my full-time jobs, but in the interest of transparency, I should probably explain what my new position is. I now work for Mizzou Online Marketing, which handles all the creative and strategy decisions regarding the online programs offered by Mizzou (University of Missouri). I was attracted to it because it offers a wide range of responsibilities, which is perfect for me, because I am professionally a little bit of everything at this point. I’m so excited to be working with a team again (I was a team of one in my last position), and in an office full of creativity and openness to new ideas.
What is your office like?
