I knew that Free People had amaaaazing offices – I’d heard about them, that they share a space in the navy yard with Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie right on the water in Philadelphia…

So the other day when I said yes to doing a talk at the University of Pennsylvania, I thought it’d be a great time to go see them for myself.
I called my friend Lauren, who I worked with on the Lou photos, and we set up a visit…

This is Ana, their director of design and image, and Kristal, their fashion director, who gave me a guided tour – and it didn’t disappoint.

The space is awesome and it has a really cool campus feel. You can see in the photos that there’s a book store, two restaurants, a workout room and you can bring your dog to work. There are meeting rooms everywhere and you can set up where ever you’d like to work. It’s all really inspiring.

Honestly, I was terrified of office life when I was younger. If I would’ve seen images of offices like this, I would’ve been a lot less afraid.

And that gives me a whole bunch of ideas for…. Drum roll please… Our new studio that we’re moving into soon. Aaaaahhhh!

What’s your office culture like? What would you change? Do you like going to the office?
