When a company wants to say thanks and show appreciation to its employees, many companies consider office art competitions, corporate art collections, or staff-curated “The Best of Instagram” galleries for their break room. (Like 2016 BCA 10 winner Dealer.com’s employee Instagram wall above.)
Another way for a company to show that it cares and put creativity at the forefront of the work environment is by including art and creativity in the office design. Sounds easy! Let’s dive into some imaginative and inspired office looks:
Boldness and Distinction -

tone for the rest of the office
and work experience.

Flexibility - Create areas that serve dual purposes (meeting areas or lounges) and by using less desks, can transition to spaces for future employees, contractors, interns, and more. Also, standing desks are begging to make your employees better thinkers!

Greenery - Sometimes office creativity isn’t about crazy carpets and bright paint. Adding plant life as décor or even a living garden wall can amp up the employee engagement opportunities.

Sometimes office enhancements are as simple as unique and better lighting or hiring local artists to paint colorful murals. Anyone of these fresh looks are great ways to get employees and leadership in touch beyond the work. Employing artistic elements to establish an exceptional corporate culture and identity is a great way to elevate the work and the walls.
