Dept. of Applied Office Arts

Applied Office Arts

Our friends at monochrom have just launched an exciting new project called the Dept. of Applied Office Arts and they are currently seeking submissions of “office art” for a future exhibition. Here are some of the masterpieces that have been submitted so far.

Office art (especially office drawing) is a regular technique used by people in white-collar working situations. There may not necessarily be a creative impulse to create office work, but the impulse of overcoming general work boredom or the necessity to help office workers keeping focus during telephone conversations and/or office meetings.
