CASE STUDY: GLASSDOOR
PROVIDE A CONSISTENT QUALITY FIT, FINISH, AND INSTALLATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL BRANDING THROUGHOUT GLASSDOOR’S CORPORATE OFFICE SPACE.
When planning its new Chicago corporate office, Glassdoor and interdisciplinary design studio, Media-Objectives, engaged Moss to execute an environmental branding project that reflects the company’s community-driven vision and values. To execute the designer’s vision for the space, Moss collaborated with Media-Objective on materials, fabrication methods, and installation of all proposed environmental graphics, specialty signage, and brand moments.
The bold design elements and color palette were inspired by Glassdoor’s rich brand assets and Chicago’s vibrant character, including city-specific features like Chicago skyline murals painted by local artists. Also unique to this project are curved walls and edges, for which Moss installed special graphic wallcoverings and dimensional art pieces. Glass storefronts for conference and huddle rooms throughout the office were adorned with Moss-produced contour cut frosted film providing a continuous geometric pattern around the entire office.
An important feature of the Glassdoor Chicago office is an installation featuring their core values. Moss installed a series of wood, circular panels adorned with moss and concrete. Large wooden letters communicate the company’s four main core values, while smaller dimensional words atop the moss convey other important values in the Glassdoor community.
Moss worked in tandem with Glassdoor and Media-Objectives, not only to ensure the company’s principles and values were articulated in the environmental branding but also to guarantee all time and budgetary expectations were exceeded. As Media-Objectives Studio Director, Amanda Jurmu, expressed:
“Moss’ storied history in the experiential design industry made the final step of fabricating our designs for the Glassdoor Chicago project a great collaboration. They took our vision and documents and put detail into our ponderings. Their experienced teams of engineers and project managers helped to drive our project to the finish line.”
