Gone are the days when offices were typically cubicles surrounded by white walls. Thanks to corporate giants like Google and Pixar that have demonstrated tremendous success despite their unconventional workplaces, more people are embracing the idea that a creative work environment helps stimulate minds and inspire innovation.
From simply ditching the crisp white walls for graphical wallpapers to a total overhaul of the office layout, we are all trying to break the mold and introduce a unique working environment to the team, and hopefully, inspire some genius ideas along the way.
So, if you are trying to inject some personality into the place you spend your daily 9-5, how about getting some cues from the creative giants themselves?
