Inspiring Office Space: Before and After

I’m so excited to finally be posting photos of one of my favourite projects last year! Initiate is a full-service graphic design agency located in the West End. Prior to moving into this space, the team were working out of their homes and occasionally meeting up at coffee shops. They found they needed a space where they could all be together to collaborate and easily meet with clients.

After almost a year in the space they have grown to a five person team, and business is booming. The fresh colours and casual atmosphere provide an awesome place to be inspired. I love how they have added their own personal touches with artwork and accessories. It was such a pleasure working with these folks and I wish them much success!

I used a reclaimed walnut table to add a rustic, casual vibe.

I utilized pops of colour and a creamy white to differentiate the zones.

Here’s a before from the desk space looking into the boardroom.

 

We frosted the window to give the folks having meetings some privacy.

Frosting the window gave privacy to those using the boardroom and those at their computers.

This is where the magic happens. I love the gallery wall they curated on their own!

The doorway into the casual meeting room was widened to improve flow.

These lockers the client found inspired the look and feel of the entire office.

I wanted this to be a relaxing space for sketching and casual meetings. Feet up is a must!
