Inspiring Surroundings make for Inspired Work.”

Done right, an ima­ge on a wall can teach, ins­pire, moti­vate and broad­cast your most impor­tant ideas and beliefs.

Done wrong, it’ll just dis­play pretty pic­tu­res that nobody cares about.

The deci­sion to clearly state what mat­ters for all to see, is not just a busi­ness deci­sion, it’s a moral deci­sion.

You can be like nearly every other business, or you can step up, take a stand, and let everyone know what it is that your com­pany actually stands for.

It’s not about deco­ra­ting, it’s about beliefs.  It’s not about aesthe­tics, it’s about lea­dership.

And once you’ve taken that stand, the word spreads.

The image will serve as a mag­net to attract like-minded cus­to­mers and emplo­yees, it will sort out the peo­ple who get it and the one’s who don’t.

At best, it will inspire your peo­ple to great­ness. At least, it will start A LOT of the right conversations.

Social Objects

Social Objects

our secret weapon

zappos culture

Want to get customers talking about your product? You need to give them things to start conversations. We make those ‘things’ and we call them Social Objects.

They are what people share online. They are what generate word of mouth. They are the fuel of today’s social web. We create images that compel your audience to share and grow your awareness.

These images don’t just sit on walls or screens, they come alive evoking emotion, rea­li­za­tion and con­nec­tion. They are shared, often fanatically so and are desig­ned to spread through social chan­nels. They let your fans tell your story, getting you noti­ced in a way that no other medium can.

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.

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.

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