Check Out The Wacky, Decidedly Inspired Media Molecule HQ
All offices should look like this on the inside. Productivity would undoubtedly rise, as would morale. ...seriously.
Although perhaps it's more fitting for the developer of LittleBigPlanet; as Media Molecule says in a behind-the-scenes look at their work space, it's just "so very us." I mean...them. Oh, you know what I mean.
It's precisely the environment from which Sackboy and his amazing environment would spring. It just paints such a perfect picture, and I like this part of the description:
"It’s the slightly weirder or out of place things that I think truly reflect the creative eccentricities of this merry band of game developers. See that mountain of paper? Have a bit of rummage and you’ll discover that it’s actually Rex’s desk, and its made from a treasure trove of doodles. Siobhan’s desk plays host to an exquisite collection of snow globes, and Alex’s cluttered mess could very well contain the secrets of the universe, if only it could be deciphered."
So hit the link above and take a gander at some of the team's "favorite oddities" including "purposeful art, random graffiti, endearing decoration, and things of unknown origin." It really gives you a good idea of how these guys operate and clearly, it's no surprise that they were able to give us one of the most original and innovatve franchises of the generation.
