A New Look for Shooting Star HQ

With the arrival of spring comes the addition of several new features to refresh our Lincoln office, which has been our agency’s base since 2012.

We’ve made a few changes over the last couple of years, including adding desks and installing a new carpet, but recently decided to step it up a gear and prioritise the office makeover.

The whole team agrees that it’s important to feel relaxed and comfortable in your place of work, so it’s been a joint effort.

Account Manager Mike has become our unofficial office gardener by taking responsibility for the plants; he’s introduced some new and exotic greenery and has drawn up a detailed maintenance plan to ensure it’s always looked after.

After a team vote, we bought some colourful new hooks: a funky set designed to look like men climbing the wall, plus some pegs reminiscent of those we had at primary school.

Thank you to the lovely Marie from Made By Mee for dedicating one of her Sundays to creating this work of art.
