Mockup Designs for ICS Lounge

I was tasked with mocking up the murals, policies, and logos in the room. First I’ll show you how the room would look. Then I’ll show you the artwork up close.

I made a conscious decision to keep all artwork away from the Apple TVs and the whiteboards. I believe that we should keep those spaces as clean and pure as possible. I believe that any artwork on that side of the room would be distracting. Before you scroll on, know that this is just my idea for the room, it will not hurt my feelings if we decide to do something different. My main goal is to get some kind of consensus on the room design so that we can go ahead and get it done in the next 2 weeks. Here we go!

Entrance

As you face the room, the policies document is posted on the door. The logo would be posted from the inside. It would be cut out to allow onlookers to look through the glass and through the logo to see what’s happening inside.

Alcove Wall

Behind the door is Conway’s “Life.” A large XKCD comic is posted on the wall outside alcove 1.

Entering the space and turning to your left, you would see an XKCD comic on the wall. The ICS logo features prominently on the far left wall.

Another XKCD comic is posted on the wall past the huge ICS logo.

Right Wall

Moving to the right wall we would see another XKCD comic on the green column. And finally there would be a triptych of Linus Torvalds, Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates’s portraits above the whiteboard.
