“How to make your business a better version of itself”

[A nice piece of 'signalling' we did for Rackspace etc.] Nice to see Harvard Business Review confirming what gapingvoid has been telling clients for years: that language affects the culture (and therefore the bottom line) of your business. This includes art, of course. From a language point of view, it’s a form of signalling. This […]

Office Art: New Metal Prints

During our Art Basel show earlier this month we made a huge splash with our newest offering: gapingvoid Aluminium Prints. People love them. They look very slick and shiny. Substantial. I dunno, they just have this very je-ne-sais-quoi about them. Right now we’re just selling little 8×10 ones on the gallery site, buit in the […]

“Who says office art has to suck?”

  “Who says office art has to suck?” It’s a rheotorical question we ask in the banner ad at the bottom of the cartoon newsletter we send out 5 times a week.

Notes On Office Art

[First published, Sept. 2009] Recently on Twitter, I wrote: Art that brightens up the office vs Art that brightens up the home. Two different vibes altogether. I prefer making the former. To which my friend, Kathy Sierra replied: Good! Homes are less likely to *need* brightening the way offices do. I can brighten my home […]

Liz Strauss

I stole this off the Internet; a photograph taken by my old Twitter pal, Amber Osborne of a print I designed for Liz Strauss’ recent #SOBcon conference.

Testimonials

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

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.

The New Republic
Lydia Depillis

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.

Len Schlesinger
Former President, Babson College

"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.
