It seems as though redecorating the office is part of the job when it comes to being a member of the creative team at Viking (a UK subsidiary of Office Depot).
A few months ago, they plastered their walls with Star Wars Post-It murals, and now they’ve built a giant cardboard castle (with a fully functioning drawbridge) in the middle of their office.
As they note on their blog, this project came as part of an initiative by their boss to beat the “January blues” by decorating their desks.
The castle was meticulously crafted using 500 pieces of waste cardboard and 80 hot glue gun sticks, and the team reportedly stayed all night building it.
Oh, and they didn’t tell their coworkers what they were doing. See their priceless reactions in the video below.
Naturally, they also crafted swords, crowns, shields, lutes, and helmets.
Management finally had enough, but something tells me that Viking’s office projects will continue for publicity’s sake.
