Workspace

A few weeks ago, I took some pictures of my office. Not my home office (which is the sofa and my laptop), but my work office. Here’s my desk:

Working with other geeks has had some bad side-effects. Notably, the fact that we all have display areas near our desks. While I was looking for some inexpensive geekery to fill mine out, I fell in love with these animated-style Star Wars statues. I had to get my favorite three characters, but I swear, I’m stopping there! And that’s a replica lightsaber in the back, and a Lando Calrissian “Mighty Muggs” on the right, next to the dragon.

If you spin to the left, you get a view of most of our warehouse studio:

Yes, I’m literally five feet away from the heavy bag!!! (Best. View. Evar.) You can also see our in-house gym (Bowflex, free weights, elliptical machine, etc.), the huge green screen, the ping pong table, and the animation room. Not pictured are the comfy sofas where I watch the Olympics and a few other desks (with their related geekery displayed).

I love the warehouse workspace — such a nice change from cubicle living! It creates a wholly different atmosphere from a typical office.

Oh, and hey! Our studio finally has a name: VERITAS STUDIOS. (Apparently it’s a Smallville reference, but I’ll have to trust the Superman geeks on that one.) I’ll post our new logo soon.

Great view on both accounts. Must be nice to be having a particularly rough day at work and be able to lunge out of your seat and start gnawing on that gym bag. My coworkers hate it when I ambush them in the cubicle aisles to let off some steam. Grr…

Thanks for posting this. It's nice to know that some workspaces can actually be fun and not a complete shit hole like most of the places I worked. Present companies excluded, of course. This is the happy year.

Note, that not all the posted links in the comments are work friendly. I mean, not friendly at my work, I'm sure it's OK at other people's jobs especially if they work at a 1-900 call center.

Ahhhh, I am so jealous of that punching bag! My workplace just moved to a warehouse, and I really like it as well. It's so much more open and freeing than a stuffy cubicle. But I think it would be even better with a punching bag!
