Gingermonkeys: The one with a wall-mounted moose’s head
A moose’s head on the wall and quilted walls make Gingermonkeys, a creative design agency, an office that nobody who enters it will ever forget.
Trevor Smith-Foreman, CEO of Gingermonkeys, explained: “I really wanted to create a space that reflected my personality. I don’t do ‘normal’ and I don’t do ‘boring’.”
“We’re creative people and I want everyone to understand that the second they walk up the stairs and see the first hallway graphic, it’s pretty clear they’re not in a normal, boring office environment anymore. I also wanted a space that my staff would take pride in. We love showing visitors around they love the fact that we welcome them with a personalised 3D graphic on our welcome screen. We always want to go the extra mile and that’s what people see when they walk into our world.”
But don’t just take it from the CEO. Steve Coles, an illustrator at Gingermonkeys, said: It’s so refreshing to turn up to work every day and be in a surrounding that nurtures our creativity. The studio reflects our personalities and also showcases some of the talent that we have at Gingermonkeys.
“Welcoming guests to the studio for the first time is always a treat, just to see the look on their faces as they never expect to see what they are faced with especially not the moose’s head mounted on the wall. Even if you have an idea of what you expect a modern design studio to look like, you have to multiply that by 1000 to get an idea of this one it blows people’s minds.
