Challenge: Culminate a day of meetings with a team-building art activity that would be energizing and inspiring. Design an image that would WOW McDonald’s world-renowned in-house design Studio 123!
Approach: Meetings with design staff challenged us with taking existing McDonald’s icons and making one of them interesting and new. We researched the company’s history and characters and presented several options.
Solution: The team lead loved Chicago Style Fries! We created McDonald’s trivia to gel with the activity and customized decor to the event.
Results: Getting in synch with the design team culture, we staged a fun team-building art critique session where the most creative fries were selected and awarded a prize. The afternoon was electric with laughter and joy and we were asked to return for a new event.
We love the brainstorming process! Incorporating the ideology of the team, the company’s history, and team personality there’s nothing quite as satisfying as creating something fresh and new! Its easy to work with us, try us out!

“I can’t even draw a stick ﬁgure” – We took this frequently voiced objection to creating art and turned it into the main character of the pineapple. At the San Diego conference, 150 guests created 150 copper stick ﬁgures that were incorporated into the design of the pineapple. A fun and efficient way of supplying the client with a team-building art experience.
The client and their guests were able to enjoy an art experience during their conference that resulted in rave reviews and 150 copper stick men. They problem-solved, created, laughed, and engaged with each other. We completed the sculpture, which glowed from within, in 3 months. A map of the stick men on the sculpture allowed for each attendee to find their stick man on the pineapple.
The project was packed and shipped to Arizona for the unveiling at the 2020 annual conference which was rescheduled for 2023.
