A lot of people go to work every single day to offices that are vanilla. Just bland and uninspiring. (That expression’s not really fair to vanilla, is it?) A cubicle in a vast sea of beige or grey.
Well, be jealous. It’s a totally energizing and creatively fueled atmosphere over at the new offices of Madison|Mott, a marketing, advertising and design powerhouse located in Westport, Connecticut. And I can tell you after spending the day there for the shoot, the office design definitely reflects the spirit of the organization. So congratulations to all those involved in the process, including interior designers Tricia Izzo and Carolyn Kron of Shelter Interiors LLC.
These uptown/downtown offices belong to the 2 top dogs over at Madison|Mott. They had a lot of involvement in the design of their individual spaces, which are on point with their own brand:
“We’re weird. Good weird. Simply put, we’re different than other firms, and proud of it. We unabashedly embrace modern day digital advances while upholding the tenets of classic marketing and advertising, to our clients’ advantage. We’re techie and traditional, we’re chic and punk, we’re Madison and Mott. We do all kinds of stuff, including: IDENTITY/BRANDING, PRINT, WEBSITES, MOBILE & SOCIAL.” from the Madison|Mott website
So for today’s Which One? Wednesday, instead of asking which photo you like better, I’d like to know which space you’d rather be immersed in every day to get your creativity flowing. I’m clearly more of a downtown kind of girl, and I am really drawn to the bright, bold colors on the right, but I have to admit, the glamour of that office on the left is calling to me. I’m torn. It’s an Audrey versus Vader kind of decision… Use the force.
If you’re new here, on Wednesdays I open up the comments for you to tell me which view from a recent photo shoot you prefer. And why. I love hearing what you have to say. You can peruse past Which One? features here.
This past few weeks I’ve been packaging awards entries for clients right and left, so it was exciting to receive some great feedback.
The design team at Beinfield Architecture has been awarded a 2012 Business in Architecture Award from the Connecticut American Institute of Architects (CT AIA) for this great private jet hangar and FBO.
This statewide award honors architects for solving business problems for Connecticut clients, thereby demonstrating the power of architecture to shape business performance, to improve peoples’ lives and provide a value added service to clients in a business setting that far exceeds the costs of that service.
It’s why we do, what we do, right?
Congratulations to the Project Team! I got to photograph this exciting project last summer – it’s quite the impressive site!
You might recall I had a potentially threatening equipment malfunction that day.Â Well, folks, it seems to have all worked out. What a relief!
Ring me up if you are headed to Stepping Stones with your kids.Â It’s fantastic, and I definitely need to get some action shots…
(Really I just want to play at the Museum.)
I worked with the ladies of Shelter Interiors, Tricia Izzo and Carolyn Kron, to photograph their new, inviting space the day after their Grand Opening Party. We had a great time setting up shots and feasting on the leftover cheese and champagne! Best wishes, Tricia and Carolyn!
And there’s still time before the holidays to take advantage of Shelter’s store-wide 20% off sale!
And here are some rare, behind-the-scenes shots snuck by an unruly Client on her iPhone. Somehow, my trusty assistant, Dr. Kiang, managed to get by uncaptured.
