[More thoughts on "Business Needs More Art":]
I doodled the above cartoon/line just now…
Maybe it’s just as simple as that: gapingvoid art is a great way for your office vibe to up its game, without having to pay higher rent or hire that expensive architect or decorator.
This is work in progress. All feedback gratefully received. Feel free to ping me on Twitter or wherever if you want to chat about it etc. Rock on.
[Update: Heh. No sooner than I posted this, did the great Kathy Sierra leave a comment:
This is not your value proposition. It’s just a fact, a feature, an attribute. Same with “transforming office art”. That’s the WHAT, but does not answer WHY. There’s the why YOU do it, and of course the WHY your customer/user wants it. Their benefit. Their result. Their awesomeness-as-a-result. Turning up the soul… Yes there is certainly something there that’s a hell of a lot more valuable than simply saving them on the cost of a pricey decorator or architect.
WHY do they want those architects and designers in the first place? What are they hoping to gain? Your work is not just a cheaper replacement. It’s getting to the heart (soul?) of something deeper and richer… You know this better than anyone
And of course, Kathy is right. But one has to try these things. Like I said many times before, we're on a mission to transform office art or die trying. "Business Needs More Art". Rock on.
[P.S. Thanks, Kathy! Love...]
