Corporate animal wallpaper (in real life)

August 18th 2009

Students of the Next Nature Theme at TU/e Industrial design in Eindhoven decided to jungle-up their working environment a bit with the corporate animal wallpaper.

Hand painted (!) by Jurrian Tjeenk Willink, Glenn Jacobs, Kevin Pfeil and Josien Rijswijk. Original pattern design by Karl Grandin, of whom the corporate animal sweater is still available.

Thanks Jurrian, Sorry about the misspelling. I fixed that (I knew you weren't married).
I guess I could have posted a better picture than this snapshot from the work in progress, although on the finished ones you might think it is a pre-printed wallpaper (except for some of the more poorly painted logos that were done by me ;) )

Koert, nice that you put it on the site. I like it better when it's finished though.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
