While day-to-day we worked in an open collaboration space we were also given private offices and challenged to decorate them in a theme. I went out on a mission to craft my dream office — a 50s inspired atomic lounge. It turned out to be a fun space for us to hang out and relax.
As a small team of 10 we loved to personalize our workspace to represent our love for the company and our fun culture. We worked hard creating startups together but also had a lot of fun somewhere in between designing and coding.
