[Some of my work appearing at a private event at Roche Pharmaceuticals a couple of months ago.]  For the last year, gapingvoid has been working intensively with Hoffman-La Roche, the large Swiss pharmaceutical company.

Wanted: Office Art Tips! tips@gapingvoid.com

[An un-PC motivational poster I made back in 2009.] “Office Art” is not exactly the largest niche I’ve been involved with (compared to say, advertising and marketing).

“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.

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.
