this week at Plaid

Here's what happened this week at the world's most lemonly delicious design and branding firm:

The week started with a day off, thanks to Martin Luther King. Awesome.

Construction continues on the addition to our space. They're painting the walls. Next week carpet comes, and they should install our custom wainscoting, which will look a little bit like this, on the back wall of the space. Because our space used to be an old theater, we want the wall to look like a classic architectural element that we uncovered in the process of renovation. That's the plan, anyway.

New desks for the new space arrived - but it's all just a tease, because we can't put anything in there yet. Our workspace is an absolute MESS, with furniture everywhere, plastic barriers blocking construction, and sheetrock dust. Oh, sheetrock dust. And did we mention that construction dudes really like to blast top 40 music on their radio?

We're hiring again! Two positions - a full-time programmer/front-end web developer, and a part-time office position.

It was really cold this week. In the teens every morning, as we drove to work. We should get awards just for waking up and adventuring to the office in such crap. Agencies in California suck a little more this week. :)

Congratulations on your new space.

I am new to the blogger phenomenon. I discovered your blog after reading the article "More Than Idle Chatter" in the February 2008 issue of Inc. magazine. Great job!
