For a while we've been gearing up to improve our studio's physical environment. It's been unchanged for the past 6 years and in need of an overhaul, especially as we need to fit more people in. This week we begun work on stripping out the old desks and prepping the walls for a coat of paint. The new office will contain new desks and seating plan to make better use of the space.
It's important to me that we aren't all facing the walls in rows. It's very easy to lay your office out like that, as it saves on a great deal of network and cabling hassle, but it creates a very unfriendly situation where everyone faces the wall and many people have their backs to one and other.
Everyone has chipped in and given up their own time to get us this far. We plan to be complete by the start of next week.
