I have been thinking about posting some pictures of the lovely ladies that ride our FP bikes, like the one above of our Design Coordinator Assistant. We have a few of these office vintage bikes the Display Team decorated with pretty flowers. Anyone can use them to run errands around the Navy Yard (our new office in Philly) like pick up the mail or just to get some fresh air during lunchbreak.

And then I was sent this picture and decided it was defintely time to post. This is Bob, our customer service manager. Some of the girls sent me some commentary to post in appreciation of Bob…
Besides being the pretzel guy – he takes care of us here…..he’s the “go to” guy (and one of the few men in the office). He was the only one who had jumper cables (and knew how to work them) when Joey thought she might need a jump one day – it turned out she didn’t…He offered to help Elena move into her new home along with a few of his buddies from college. He even offers to bring paper over to our printer by the box loads – since we can only carry two or three packs at a time. All in all, Bob’s a great guy!

a thought sparked by my current thoughts in conjunction with an image of a bicycle touched by free people.
through every aspect of design, urban outfitters inc./free people strikes me as a company with potential become involved with some or many facets pertaining to our impact on the environment. i’m currently studying architecture but haven’t pinpointed what sort of design I’d like to pursue afterward—but I think all design can be used to create an awareness, and our environment is a perfect one to address. surely fashion somewhere has tapped into this, but obviously not a large enough scale. whether it be through installations in your stores using reclaimed materials [which I know you do], fabrics, jewelry, concepts…
i’d love for this to be put into action.
