One of the things I mentioned in my previous post about my side job as a corporate office decorator, was the need for artwork for our walls. With a full blank slate to work with we needed something to add life to our space. Luckily, I run the in-house creative team. It is quite a fun job to direct three talented designers on a variety of projects. Fun stuff like office decorating, makes it even better.
Two of my very talented designers worked with me on the posters and other design features throughout the space. Arivia from Arid Designs worked on this handful of typographic artwork for our space. It is so rewarding to find quotes that inspire me, get others from the team, and then see them designed, printed and displayed in our space. It has made such a visual difference too.
Here are a few collages of Arivia’s work that is currently on display throughout our office.
This is the funny thing, this can’t be considered a sponsored post since she works for me and I technically pay her. One thing I hold firm on is that designers I work with should always be building their own personal portfolio and brand, which is what I am encouraging Arivia to do. Arivia currently sells versions of her work on RedBubble in the form of t-shirts, posters and other items.
More soon from one of my other amazingly talented designers, Janay. These two “kids” have taught me a lot about myself as a creative person, as a person, and as a leader. Cheesy as it might be, it is really rewarding to grow and mentor “young” talent. I’m lucky to be their boss. I mean, really? I get to hang up their artwork and say I directed it. It can’t get much better than that?
