about gapingvoid: “if you’re trying to change your business’ culture, you should be talking to us”

office art change 1312

I’m Hugh Mac­Leod. I’m a car­too­nist. Occa­sio­nally I write books.

“If you’re trying to change your business’ culture, you should be talking to us” pretty much says it all.

gaping­void was founded by me (Creative Director) and Jason Korman (CEO) to affect change in business and business culture, using my distinct style of drawing.

We offer  bespoke services (including gapingvoid CultureMail),  which you can read more about on the gapingvoid homepage.

Clients include Rackspace, Intel, Cisco, Roche Pharmaceuticals, Babson College, Techcrunch, Dewar’s Whisky etc.

We also have a daily car­toon news­let­ter that makes a lot of peo­ple happy.

Peo­ple ask, as an artist, why are you so obses­sed with the office? And I ans­wer, because that is where the action is, that is where we all need the most help.

Sure, there are other pla­ces where the human drama takes place: homes, bars, res­tau­rants, schools, shops, the street etc. But con­si­de­ring how cen­tral busi­ness is to our lives, I find it odd that more peo­ple don’t unders­tand how impor­tant art can be to the work envi­ron­ment. So gaping­void is on a mis­sion to help them unders­tand this better.

If you just want to say ‘Hello’, feel free to email me, any­time.

If you want to talk busi­ness, then it’s pro­bably best to please con­tact Jason, here. We look for­ward to wor­king with you. Thanks!

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
