a print of a very “vintage” foodservice poster concept from years ago featuring organic valley “continental” butter pats put together to look like stonehenge. if memory serves the concept was a joke done by designers but i always enjoyed the idea and kept it in the office.
it till amuses me that around 6 years ago I took a photo of me stealing peas from theresa marquez’s organic valley employee garden plot ( she was then the ov chief marketing officer ) and somehow it ended up on the wall of our employee cafe ( seen here on the left ). And even more improbably it survived the hq fire from a few years ago, and was put back up after the rehab and redesign of the cafe after the fire.
waaaaay down the hill on the right is louise hemstead, organic valley’s chief operating officer. i can’t believe i missed getting a photo of her jumping on a sled and ripping down the hill. fun time with great people in a lovely setting. i haven’t sledded on a hill this big since I was a kid at my grandparent’s home in jonesboro, maine.
after the fire at organic valley hq i’ve been working in a building that used to be a bank. this poster is in the break room. the not particularly flattering portrayal of bankers by visa marketing fascinates me. poster circa 2001. i have no idea why it hasn’t been taken down. perhaps it fascinates others
