Short Version: We make "Motivational Art For Smart People".
gapingvoid was founded by me (Chief Creative) and Jason Korman (CEO) to effect change in business, using my distinct style of drawing.
i.e. "If you're trying to change your business' culture, you should be talking to us."
We believe that our work can express ideas, vision, beliefs, stories, culture, mission and purpose faster, better and more deeply than any other method of business communication.
Clients include Rackspace, Intel, Cisco, Roche Pharmaceuticals, Babson College, Techcrunch, Dewar’s Whisky etc.
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 make things happen, that's where we spend at least a third of our lives.
Sure, there are other places where the human drama unfolds: 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 determined to help them understand that 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."
In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
