After we launched Panda Market
, the World's First Mobile Flea Market Application, we moved to the very center of Gangnam!
We are greatly thankful for the beautiful and modern office! :)
Yes, we are up here! Very Gangnam Style.
It takes a while to our 18th floor office, but we don't mind at all!
Waiter, I might need a glass of wine here…
We love our new glass wall conference rooms.
This jaw-dropping spiral staircase is 3 story high,
and visitors usually become speechless as they discover this!
(We were one of them, too.)
There is another conference room on the 20th floor.
Wherever we are, we always work hard and keep our office clean.
We've been trying not to be too loud, but we can't help it. :)
Ally's monitor with thousands of windows!
And if you noticed, Ally designed new name tags for team members.
She also came up with hillarious nicknames for each person.
Bom made a new CEO desk nameplate for Jay. (Finally!)
Sunny put this fake flower on Jay's standing lamp to show how popular Jay is. (...Sorry)
Sweet notes from Panda Market users…
And please ignore our awesome Android developer in the background.
Panda Cafe is now open! Panda bears are having a tea time here...
We take some rest or have ideation meetings at Panda Cafe.
(Or watch TV...?)
The view from Panda Cafe-
We no longer need to go to Jamsil Baseball Stadium during baseball season.
If you get stressed out from work, you can always shoot Panda-Panda!
Or how about getting a massage therapy?
Although we don't bake waffles anymore, you are always welcome to our office.
Panda-Panda will make some coffee for you. And don't forget to download our new application, Panda Market! :)
It’s always nice to have some plants around the working space. Well, it’s not very easy to keep indoor plants alive (right!?). But the ones at our office seem quite healty and happy. Although it might be a little bit late, we’d like to thank our visitors who gave us beautiful plants as gifts. Thanks to your thoughtful gifts, our office is getting greener and greener!
We have lots of big windows which let enough lights in. I’m in charge of watering the plants, and sometimes I hear them ask for water. (So don't worry! They'll never get dried out.)
This beautiful plant has a sweet letter from Jay’s sister.
Tiny flowers! How cute...
More sweet messages... :)
I love these little ones. They look greener especially on rainy days.
Our intern’s herb. It has grown so much!
Yup, some are called ‘Money Tree’. These trees don't get thirsty easily...
Most pictures were taken during heavy rainy season. I’ll show you how our plants are doing during this fall very soon!
I'm just letting you know that we always welcome more leaves! :)
As it is mentioned in
the previous post
, we moved to Seoul last weekend.
We didn't want to ruin the bright atmosphere of the space. It is so bright that we don't need desk lamps anymore. So we ended up doing just a few interior works! :)
Now, I'd like to share some pictures of our new Dream Bakery interior.
First, we decided to add a glass wall to create a conference room. All the members liked how simple it was!
On the left side of the
room, there is a little kitchen.
This is the inside view of the conference room. Now we have a white board to write on.
We also created an image wall right in front of the entrance door.
If you are wondering what the orange wall is for... I'll show you more about it later on in this post. :)
We also needed something to entertain us. Here are some photos of the mini racing cars and the track which were kindly donated by Jay. We enjoy racing during our break time. It's a lot fun!
The following pictures show how the Dream Bakery looks now.
Our visitors often get amazed by the way our office looks as they walk in, but we didn't do anything crazy. It is just very bright during the daytime, and we threw in some colorful pillows and a couch. You need just a little bit of creativity to set a bright tone in the space!
We also have TV, but our members barely turn it on. We are working so hard...
Now we had desks, chairs, and a projector!
I'm sure that our members are workaholics... -_-;
If you are still wondering what we were doing with the orange wall, here is the answer!
I was working on a drawing of a city view, which will also appear on the orange wall.
As you noticed, the color orange represents PlaceTab! :)
It was my first illustration on the wall, and it wasn't easy at first...
Here are some close-up shots of the drawing.
It looks just like the pen and ink drawing I worked on earlier.
If you walk into our office, this will be the first thing you'll see!
We had so may different ideas for this wall in the beginning, such as making our CI with Acrylic or wood.
Finally, we all agreed that it would be much nicer if we draw an image that reflects the concept of our service!
This illustration can be changed at anytime, and it doesn't cost much.
We also thought this wall painting would create a cozy mood like our company name, "Waplestore".
I hope you also enjoy it!
Probably our last mission! (crossing fingers...)
We had to assemble 3 sets of DIY locker, and again, it was a lot of work! T^T
Jay and Kay putting the parts together...
Ta-da! We're done!
This is the way our little kitchen looks now. We also bake waffles here!
All of our team members had done a lot of works for our new office. None of this would have been possible without their help!
Great job, Waplestore dream bakers! :)
