So in the past couple of weeks we’ve outgrown our old office and took over another unit which now acts as our new office. There are now 50 Nuffies in the KL office so we thought that it was about time some of us actually moved out for our own space. We still have the old orange office… but it’s now more like a back office to us.
For the first time ever… we now have our own little lobby with our logos on it to greet guests.
Now when we first took over this new office unit, everything about it was really corporate. It was nice.. but just corporate. We knew it wouldn’t do. We also knew that our Nuffies were a talented bunch. So instead of getting an interior decorator to do it, we set aside some budgets and we trusted the Nuffies who would be using the new office a free hand in decorating their own offices. Or as we call it… to “Nuffie-fy” our new office.
This is the result.
Welcome to the Blogger Relations Department in Nuffnang Malaysia.
This is where the team that manages our 300,000 bloggers in Malaysia sit every day and help Nuffnang bloggers with whatever they need.
They thought that since we’re all crazy about blogging and social media in general, they would decorate their walls with this.
And they would have little photo frames all over with a little notice board for them to put up post-it notes for each other.
And of course there’s a notice board for them to put up stuff they got to keep from past Nuffnang events.
Whether it’s just a ticket stub or a flyer or even a cap from the event.
Next to the Blogger Relations department is a more formal meeting room where we have some of our bigger meetings.
It comes full equipped with a wine cooler, fridge, microwave etc etc for the people having a meeting to snack. We’re also thinking of adding a foosball table in the room for Nuffies to chill out when the room is not being used for serious stuff.
On the whole other side of the office sits the ChurpChurp team. They keep their door closed all the time so nobody really knows what the girls are doing. They call their HQ, the Birdie’s Nest.
Right outside their room though you’ll see their shoe racks with all their shoes in them.
Welcome to the ChurpChurp office.
They opted for a bright yellow wall and little decos that are of birds… since well… ChurpChurp’s mascot is a bird.
The entire ChurpChurp team operates very independently from Nuffnang and even from me. I don’t really get involved with their team at all. I just put a bunch of really talented people together and they do their own hiring and run their own operations. One thing about them though.. is that for some reason… all the staff at ChurpChurp are girls.
Which kinda explains why @Churp2 is so feminine.
I asked them why is it they don’t have any guys in their team and they played this song which they say is their theme song.
So okay… fine fine. I moved on but told them it’s about time they hired some guys. Perhaps they foresee themselves hiring some guys already because for some reason they have a football in there.
The rest of their office is pretty cool
I really like how they turned boring old cupboards to really nice ones like this.
Or boring plain walls with little stickers of birds like this.
And of course they too have their own notice board where they can post memorabilia from their previous events.
My favourite part of their office though was their insta-wall. Where they printed up and put up pictures that all of them had collected about Nuffnang or ChurpChurp from Instagram.
I spent some 10 minutes there looking at one by one of the photos. I love how they’re really creative in the stuff they put up and the best part was that they’re not even done. When I went over they were still putting stuff together for their new office.
I think the Nuffies at both Nuffnang & ChurpChurp did an awesome job with their new office. I always think though that it’s not just about how the office looks that makes a company fun. It’s the culture and the people and for that I’m thankful that I’m working with the most wonderful team evah!
I go to work every day looking forward to see all of them.
