Team building exercise – ‘StockdaleMartin under canvas’

No, we are not going camping if that’s what you were expecting. . . !

Here at 728 we have been conducting a small team building exercise, centred around each of us crafting a canvas picture that expresses something about our personality. This may take the form of how we see ourselves, how we feel about our work, a representation of a special area of  interest – whatever takes our fancy, really! When completed, as well as seeing what they say about us as both individuals and as a team, these canvasses will be hung on display in the new office (possibly in our kitchen ‘break out’ area).

Each of us has been presented with an identical blank canvas (as seen in the photo below – a small 24 x 30cm, 12mm thick affair) and given two weeks to decorate/adorn/mutilate it as we see fit! There are no rules or guidelines as to what can/can’t be done to the canvasses – the only constraint is our collective imaginations. . .

With construction having been conducted in the strictest secrecy (to avoid anyone being influenced by the direction taken by others) the grand unveiling occurred earlier this week. Here are the results, along with a brief resumé of what each one represents.

As suspected, even in a relatively small team such as ours, there was a surprisingly wide range of approaches and styles. Here are photos of the completed works – guess whos is whos?
