one of our most inspiring fp girls, our creative director, has started a twitter! follow her to get the updates on her day’s activities from lunch to xmas tree decorating :) i’m so excited, i always wanna know what she’s up to!
the website arch daily posted an article on the urban outfitters campus, featuring some gorgeous photos and a really interesting video about the project. as you may know, urban purchased a group of buildings down at the navy yard, which had been abandoned back in 1996. the transformation of the buildings was really astonishing, shifting from factory-like spaces meant for the construction and repair of naval vessels to beautiful office buildings where creativity flourishes.
i’ve posted a lot of photos of the campus and our new building on the blog, but these photos by lara swimmer photography give you a much more expansive picture of the campus as a whole and the size and scope of these beautiful buildings where we work.

this is actually pretty wild – these are our two web merchandisers, who maaayyyy be spending a little too much time working together, because they came in today wearing almost identical outfits! printed maxi skirts, boots, black sweatshirt/sweater and vest, one fur, the other with fur trim on the hood… and while you can’t see it in this photo, they are both wearing sarah lewis bullet shell necklaces! great fashion minds think alike :)
it was only a matter of time before the christmas decorations popped up down in our customer service area! i love the lights…i’m thinking we might need some of those down here on our end of the office.
even bob’s ticket made it onto the tree! apparently he’s a big eagles fan, or something… ;)
the office is deserted today – everyone’s either off for the holiday or working in our stores. the few of us that are here feel a little lonely, but the quiet is kinda nice compared to the craziness that’s probably going on at stores today…
cute shirt on our creative design assistant :)
chau wearing something one of our designers whipped up in mere minutes. amazing!
something a lil fun for you today… remember when you were little and you learned how to draw a turkey by tracing your hand? well i asked our graphic designers to do something for the blog for thanksgiving and this is what i got :) ain’t he clever?
if you guys want to get creative, feel free to send in your rendition of a hand turkey to firstname.lastname@example.org :)
is it just me or are there a ton of birthdays this time of year? i wasn’t the only one celebrating today… here are some pics from a party for one of visual display team members – they have a slight advantage when it comes to decorating ;)
and that’s my sweet card jemma made and the cute little plant that was waiting on my desk for me this morning :)
