Do you like to decorate your cubicle workstation throughout the year with eye-catching oddities and humorous sayings? The ilusa.com gallery is the place to go for free art you can download, print out, and tack up in your workspace. The featured designs range from Escher style visual puzzles to wry statements about the reality of office life.
One particularly fitting piece of signage for an energy conscious and financially struggling workplace is this one: Due to current financial restraints, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off until further notice. This bizarre collection also includes optical illusions and witticisms that will make your coworkers do a double take. Check out the elephant in the photo at the top left of this blog and you’ll see. Are there 4 legs…or 5?
Be the Cool, Quirky Coworker
It’s just the kind of thing to get your office mates talking about you in a good way. As in “Have you seen the latest addition to that guy’s cubicle? You should check it out.” That’s the perfect setup for someone who likes to socialize a little at work. Your choice of cube art lets people know you are approachable and enjoy an occasional conversation. To keep things fresh, you can rotate in new pictures and signs every month or so. It’s cheaper than having candy at your cubicle to attract coworkers – and much less fattening.
No More Mister Nice Guy
Of course, sometimes the signs or pictures you choose could also be used to keep people away. For example, this quote attributed to Sarah Ferguson would make a nice cross stitch sampler: “Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.” If you have a tight deadline and just want to be left alone, this could be just the gentle prompting your coworkers need to get the message.
