Have you seen the photos of the Google headquarters? I have and I’ve got a serious case of office envy. Who wouldn’t want to work in such a fabulous, colourful, quirky, fun looking building?
A dull, colourless office, desk upon desk of bland nothingness is hardly going to get those creative juices flowing. Before you start penning resignation letters and spamming Google with CVs, why not try googlifying your office. A splash of colour and originality can do wonders for any office.

It’s always a lovely surprise to look up at the clock during a productive day at work and see that the day is almost done. Even better when that clock is a cheery colour to enhance that happy home time feeling. Time flies when you’re having fun ….. Not so much for the clock watchers who begin the home time count down from 9.01am … why I ask… WHY? It’s a good looking clock, granted, but there is absolutely no need to look at it that many times!!!
How many minutes a day do you waste flicking through the wrong ring binders for a file that is over there, in another ring binder, that is the exact same colour, next to twenty other identical ring binders.

A messy desk doesn’t always mean a messy mind. Albert Einstein, Roald Dahl and Mark Zuckerberg are all known for having a messy workspace and they did quite well for themselves. What some would call clutter, another might call inspiration. Too much ‘inspiration’ on your desk might not go down well with the boss or could give the wrong impression to visitors. These collapsible cabinets give your desk an organised, mess free appearance at a moments notice.

By exposing its complicated inner workings it serves as a reminder that with hard work and determination, we too can produce excellent results and make it look easy.
