Brickface and Sunshine: The Offices of Union Street Media

This is exciting!  My first blog post for Union Street Media.  For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a Support Specialist and Junior Web Developer here at our cozy Burlington, Vermont office.  I’ve been here for less than six months and it already feels like I’ve known my colleagues for years.  We work well as a team and it shows, and one of those things that helps fuel our fire is our sweet workspace.

Recently, I came up with the crazy idea to take some pictures around the office.  This was a bold step on my part because it would truly expose how geeky we are with our Star Wars figurines on the shelves to the stick-figure post-it notes all over my desk.  My idea wasn’t completely random though; I not only wanted to show my peers where I worked, but upload the pictures into the Flickr pool for’s Featured Workspaces.  The idea of this image pool is to share your workspace with others and show how you remain comfortable, but at the same time allow yourself to push your workload from your inbox to the out.

Every so often, pulls some pictures from the pool and features them on their site.  This week, we happen to be the lucky group that was shown on the front page and it displayed our stellar work area.  This was a huge honor and we’re so thankful for Lifehacker taking the time of day to not only check out our office, but to write a story about it as well. This has been quite the Summer/Fall for Union Street Media with our previous Seven Daysies Award for Best Web Developer.

If you would like to connect with me, you can find me on twitter or flickr.
