What on our walls .. a curated gallery of prints
In this blog post we are going to talk about what’s on our office walls. Don’t yawn ... this gets interesting.
After renovating the office late in 2017 our walls have remained a steadfast, and admittedly a tad boring, blank. All well and good – who doesn’t love a good coat of paint – but we had big plans.
To quote our CEO Tamas Perlaky, “How we populate our environment means something”. Decorating is more than just an aesthetic; it should reflect the culture of the company and the people who inhabit the space.
Our big plans have recently come to fruition and we’d like to tell you about it. Our walls are now a gallery of photos all taken by our staff. You can get a quick look on the video below to see some of the canvases. Each of the large canvas prints is accompanied by a quote that speaks to the core values and guiding principles that drives what we do.
The pictures themselves are places that are important to the people that work here – they span the globe and do, as we planned in our Vision 2020 comic book, fill the walls with works of natural wonder and human ingenuity.
Each quote was chosen carefully; it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say we went through many hundreds of quotes to distill down to these 22 that are the most meaningful to us. As an interesting side exercise, we asked the staff how they interpreted some of the quotes. There was a kernel of similarity in interpretations, but everyone had a slightly different take on what the quote meant to them.
Finally, this gallery is intended to be fluid and open to future changes. We can move pieces around and add in new pieces to echo new experiences and thoughts because, as an immutable truth … things evolve and change.
What do you think of our wall art? Does it ‘say’ anything to you that you’d like to share with us?
