Right now we're implementing an update to our website that’ll bring all sorts of benefits to our existing and potential customers.
Following our own InSite delivery methodology we’ve been through the Prototyping phase and come up with new layouts that’ll exploit Kentico’s personalisation and provide a more sector-based experience. Our brand colours are a given and we’ve used them (of course) to base the new design on.
In our discussions we started to think about using our brand more obviously and the idea came up to redecorate the office walls using them. Currently the office walls are a uniform very pale green which is all very nice and normal but we got excited about changing the office and wondered what it might feel like to work in such an office…We Photoshopped pictures of the office to show to the team, selected commercial paint that closely as possible matched our brand colours and yesterday we painted a few test “splodges”.
The potential looks awesome but there are some who are sceptical about the end result any maybe they are right…this new report suggests that bland grey, beige and white offices induce feelings of sadness and depression, especially in women. Men, on the other hand, experience similarly gloomy feelings in purple and orange workspaces. As two of our core colours are purple and yellow-gold maybe the feedback from some of the guys is worth listening to!
Having “splodged” the walls however we are going to sit back and reflect on whether we take the next step and get the whole walls done.
If you have an experience of working within your brand coloured office we’d love to hear about them!
