Go Media Construction Update

Hey Everyone! There have been some requests to see updates on the office construction. We ARE in the new office! Everything is not done yet – but it’s about 90% done. I’ll try to keep the text in this post fairly light and just show you as many pics as possible. You’ll notice there is lots of extra room. I wanted to make sure we built a space that we can grow into. I don’t want to have to go through another move anytime soon.

Go Media Headquarters update image Behind the sales manager’s desk are these cabinets.

Go Media Headquarters update image This is our messy area. As you can see, it’s messy.

Go Media Headquarters update image This is the back hall where we have two enclosed cubicles, two bathrooms, HVAC closet, server room and a storage closet.

Go Media Headquarters update image This is cubicle one. Eventually we will be putting our Wacom Cintique back here. Don’t laugh, yes, that IS a CRT monitor.

Go Media Headquarters update image Here is cubicle two. I’m not sure exactly what will go in here. But we are about to paint one wall with “Idea Paint.” It turns any wall into a giant dry-erase board.

Well, that’s it. We’re very excited to be in here. There are a number of items that need finished – like our library and the aquarium. But it’s been a fantastic upgrade from my house so far. Hope you enjoyed the tour.

Go Media was the culmination of my interests for both business and art. I'm trying to build a company that is equally considerate of our designers AND our clients.
