When the paper company Arjowiggins unveiled its new fancy paper line Curious Collection, they wanted to do something with a lot of impact to announce it! With the help of French photographer Grégoire Alexandre, they did! Aren’t these pictures incredible?! See some fun behind-the-scenes video here! (Along the sidebar.)
Remember Carrie’s cool time-lapse video from yesterday? She videotaped the lobby from down the hallway for quite a few hours to create a time-lapse view of the creation of our lobby garden!
However, leaving the camera recording the hallways for so long meant she caught some other interesting goings-on as well. You guys will love this clip of one of our production designers hamming it up! I wish I could dance like that…
For a very long time, we had a funny little patched round bench in the center of our lobby, with an umbrella over the top of it! At the end of last week though, we were all very interested to see a giant sea-green box sitting in the center of our lobby instead! You can see the lonely umbrella awaiting its fate in the background. (Don’t worry, its fate is probably just to get used somewhere else.)
We had an idea of what might be next when we noticed that they were filling the box with dirt! You can see I’ve been spotted by the cute dirt shovelers…
They came up with a better idea of how to move the dirt – a golf cart!
Next came the plants!
Wow! Look at that vibrant little garden! Practically a forest!
Ah! I love having this new green around! It’s soo relaxing! Now, what’s way cooler than the pictures I took is the video Carrie took! She set up a camera in the hallway and made a time-lapse video of everyone putting the garden together! It is really funny to watch it all sped up! Check it out!
I know this picture has already been making the rounds on lots of blogs lately, but it’s so cute I couldn’t resist posting it, just in case you hadn’t seen it! The photo is by David Sykes, who tells us about the photo on his site:
This latest piece of personal work is all shot in one shot on 5×4 transparency. I comissioned a model maker, Ridley West, to make a giant plate that we could attach to the wall, and with the help of Jennie Webster who sourced some amazing balloons, this shot was the result.
Those balloons really are amazing!
