Where We Work

Where We Work: Coming in Spring 2010 from HarperCollins Publishers

We’ve been working for many months on this one, and it’s been a blast. Based on the website – this book features the most jaw-dropping office interiors from around the world. But not just any offices. This book is devoted exclusively to the media and advertising industry. (And let’s be honest: what industry would have cooler office spaces than the advertising biz?)

The back cover sums it up more eloquently than we can:

Where We Work showcases the interior design of forty-five of the world’s most inspiring work environments from internationally acclaimed  and recognized agencies within the Advertising, Media and Design industries.

This book will be in stores in April 2010.

Interesting behind-the-scenes tidbit: During the book design phase, when we  imported the text into InDesign, all em dashes changed to hypens. Commas disappeared, as did all italic text. And…it took us a few days to notice this.

As a result,  we frantically had to re-copyedit everything at the last minute, and keystroke in over 100 missing commas and other copy editing errors.

Each project has it’s ‘moments’, and we made it through this one, but it wasn’t easy. Just ask our very tired book designers at Anderson Design Group.  Thanks Amy, Joel and Edward, for saving the day! A box of cookies is headed your way.
