We were fairly impressed with the tasteful, if not a little sedate, new digs of the Gawker team shown above. All that leather and metal says "we're serious, seriously!" But to be honest, I'd much rather work at the offices of Google Zurich (with more photos under the jump), where "serious" seems to be subjective:
From a creative environment comes creative ideas (well, also starting off with a world class talented team). And I say this coming from the most uninspiring offices of a toy company prior to joining AT, where each day surrounded by the drab surroundings of Office Space appointments almost guaranteed creative lethargy. There's nothing worse than offices designed by the pages of office catalogs, especially for those who depend upon creativity. Kudos to Google for recognizing this.
