Hey Look - blog header



So, it's been really quiet around here for the past weeks, but we've had our hands so full that there was simply no time to blog. While our day to day work and our projects take their fair amount of time, we got a little extra load all of a sudden. Remember this post? Literally two weeks after I snapped those pictures of our finally ready studio we got the notice that our space has been sold and our lease is being terminated after 3 months.

So, we cried a little, then moved on to finding a new place for us to work in. And that hasn't been the easiest project - we had a long list of requirements to a space really. Next to the minimum size requirement and the maximum price, these other points were just as important. We want it to be central, but not so central that during rush hours it will take us ages to get to. We want a place that is on the ground floor with its separate entrance or if on a higher floor, it needs direct access to a freight elevator. It should be in ok condition, but really not fancy, shiny and new - our work does tend to be dirty at times, but at the same time we need a creative and "clean" environment for our planning and design work. Natural light is really important for us, so any kind of cellar space is out of the question. The space should have some personality; we love the industrial but homey feel of our old space for example. And there is the most difficult point that is impossible to describe in an ad or see on a picture: the feeling needs to be right.

Wow, right? What a list. And that's exactly why we've been a-wall for these previous weeks (months, yeah). We read the listings every day, posted space search ads, we contacted just about everyone we know who could have a lead on a space, we went to see quite a few places, called about even more.

And then finally one place just felt right. And it's basically only a few minutes from our old place. So, right now we're moving. Next week we'll be starting some new projects in our brand new studio - so exciting! We'll definitely snap some pics once the place is ready.

But for now, we leave you with a little more work space inspiration.

  5. I am truly delighted to read this post which contains plenty of helpful facts, thanks for providing these data. Great article, exactly what I needed. Outdoor marketing can be set where the message truly numbers: it's the main medium where you can catch the group of onlookers in setting and near the purpose of procurement. Outside advertising conveys fast brand mindfulness for publicists in a financially savvy way.

  6. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.
