The first thing we did was survey the lay of the land – we had an excellent central area for our desks, a really nice offset wall, and four offices adjoining the main area. We sat down, did a bit of brainstorming and figured out what we needed, and what we wanted.
While Erik begun applying the Twisted Toast blue to the freshly-dried offset wall, our team of office reconstruction workers begun stripping out drywalling between two of our offices. We decided that we wanted to turn the two adjacent offices into a single “chill room” to house our coffee machine, couches and the like. It’s adjacent to our balcony and braai area, so it really works well!

After a quick break for lunch, and to let the paint dry, the team got stuck back into it. While Erik started on the decals of the Twisted Toast logo and the clouds, the rest of the team started prepping one of our walls for a paintjob – with a twist! We planned to turn the one wall in our office into a massive blackboard where we could brainstorm ideas, scribble random musings and have our guests leave us messages. After copious amounts of masking tape had been applied, painting began, with everyone, even some Starcom employees and a few friends who dropped by to say hello getting in on the action!
By late afternoon the decal work had been done with the main logo painted along with most of the clouds, and the blackboard wall was coming along nicely!
With all the painting done, it was time for the big reveal! Unfortunately, the decal hadn’t aherred to the paint quite as well as we’d hoped, so our logo came out with a couple of rough edges, which Erik quickly set to remedying.
