Whistle While We Work
Paying a visit to European Golf Design can be a musical extravaganza. As you walk through the office a diverse array of musical tastes can be heard as you pass from office to office.
At EGD peoples doors are always open. First you pass by Stan Eby’s office, you’ll find him listening to classic 60’s & 70’s Rock, one of his favourites being Little Feat. Next you swing by Ross McMurray’s room, he’ll be generally sat at his drawing board tapping his foot away to the Blues.
When you enter the main office you can hear more than the sound of keyboards tapping and phones ringing. Generally it’s a mixture of the radio or peoples playlists on Napster. There’s 6 of us so banging out Metallica all day doesn’t please everybody!! It’s a fine balance, something interesting, but not too distracting, but there are times when you can’t beat the good old sound of silence.
Going past the print room you come to Robin Hiseman and Gary Johnston’s offices. The doors are right next to each other and standing outside you can sometimes be greeted by a wall of sound. There’s a mixture of Indie from Rob and Dance/Rock beats from Gary.
Let’s us know the music that does it for you when you’re designing or need inspiration at work?
Designer Stan Eby’s favourite – Lowell George and Little Feat
