Here’s a look behind the scenes on a shoot we directed for the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits.
We got to watch a special performance of Saber-toothed Cat puppets made by Jim Hensen. Go see the next Ice Age Encounters show at the Page Museum on Tuesday, December 6th.
Some toys inside the lab – poor tortoise!
The skull of a Saber-toothed Cat inside the Fishbowl lab.
Here is Zed the Mammoth getting his skull cleaned. He is one of the Page Museum’s most complete and largest discoveries.
A collection of uncovered fossil specimens from various animals.
One of our favorite parts about moving in to our new space is picking out the furniture. Many of the new pieces are from Herman Miller and it felt like Christmas when all the boxes arrived.
The unboxing begins.
Here are pairs of Eames Aluminum Management Chairs.
Eames Molded Plywood Dining Chairs, perfect for our upstairs lounge.
A lineup of Aerons from small to large.
Yves Behar’s SAYL chairs for one of the conference rooms.
We love the simplicity of the Setu Side chairs. The instruction manual says, “Sit down.”
The Herman Miller showroom is just down the street, but now we have our own mini showroom at Hello!
We outgrew our former studio and spent the last couple months building and designing a new one. Although a few details are still coming together, here’s a glimpse of our space. Drop by and say hello.
David met up with our friend Cass in Brooklyn to shoot for a major beauty brand. Our work launches this November – peace out.
Hello has been growing at a rapid rate and we’ve been on a quest for a new agency space. We found a spot that is double the size of our current space and are happy to see our designs slowly come to life for our new office.
Since we designed and built all the previous Hello spaces, we were able to take the learnings from the first two spaces and apply it to our new one, figure out what works for us, and create a workplace that fosters creativity – especially when it comes to desk space.
We custom designed our desks to be integrated and equipped with an open power and data tray to avoid a wire nightmare on the floor. Desk spaces are given enough distance to hold informal meetings at each person’s area, which aren’t separated by cubicles or walls. With 20-foot ceilings and skylights, we are embracing an open studio. It’s about efficiency and transparency.
The new office is still under construction but here’s a sneak peek on our progress.
Last summer the Lynda.com crew spent several days at Hello conducting interviews and shooting footage for Creative Inspirations, their documentary series. The documentary captures the history of Hello to what our agency has grown into today – sharing our work, space, and philosophies that are the driving force behind our love for creating experiences that continue to grow and evolve with our industry.
Lynda.com’s mission is to provide the tools needed to help people reach their creative and career goals. Creative Inspirations is part of Lynda.com’s courses that aims to re-energize and inspire creatives by interviewing top creative professionals and sharing how they think, work, and reached the pinnacle of their respective fields. We are honored to be included in this series featuring exemplary individuals and companies’ in all the creative walks of life. Watch the full documentary here.
We’re back from a shoot for simplehuman, a brand we’ve always admired for creating “tools for efficient living.” Known for their beautifully designed stainless trash cans, simplehuman designs thoughtful and innovative products for the kitchen, bathroom, and more. Go behind the scenes on our latest project with them.
Our studio filled to the brim with simplehuman.
