“Bouncing” Into a New Startup Office Space





business startup cartoon

I was reading something recently about open office layouts and was trying to think of a cartoon to play with that idea, but it’s not something I have any experience with.

The last time I had a ‘normal job’ we were all in cubicles. Which got me thinking about enclosed spaces, which got me thinking, of course, about bouncy houses.

And then this cartoon popped out.

I don’t pretend to fully understand how my head works sometimes, I’m just glad it continues to.

  1. I HATE open office layouts. I prefer the privacy of an office or even a cube. Funny cartoon. I relate to it in that at my office, near the end of the day, people start bouncing around from desk to desk pretending to be busy.

    • Not the case for me. I don’t like enclosed spaces. Makes me feel sad than focused. I can always tune out people through music if I need to be extremely focused but it is less stressful for me to keep myself connected to other people.

  2. Looks like more fun than a foosball table!

  3. As much as everyone hates the cubicle work spaces, they have been proven very effective at keeping employees focused and increasing their work output. I don’t mind the lack of openness, if my work space has too many distractions, I won’t get much done at all.

    In this working environment you could bounce back and forth your business ideas with your co-workers in an easy way! 😉

  5. To be fair I’d trade my open space for a bouncy castle any day 🙂

  6. Hahaaaaaaaa! A bouncy castle for office space! Brilliant!

    I’d actually quite like that, especially during summer. 🙂
