Designing Creative Workspaces

The Warner Bros. Design Studio was recently approached to develop concepts for a creative work space for our Game Audio group.


Our idea: interpret the playfulness of vintage superheroes from comics in to a modern, refined environment.  How would we accomplish this?  In the conceptual development we designed items that utilized vintage pieces with modern twists.  An armchair with a Victorian carved frame is reinterpreted with a high gloss epoxy finish and upholstered with a graphic comic print fabric; channel letters and symbols are introduced to provide fun directional signs; and a custom interactive chalkboard wall provides employees and clients a canvas to interact, create and collaborate.  To finish the space, a vintage comic book wallcovering evoking a nostalgic feel was added to anchor the space, and we suggested scenic murals by local artists or the groups’ own gaming designers to bring in a current touch.
