The office website is long overdue for a better group photo but we want something more original than having us line up in a row like a bunch of ducks. To give the photographer an idea of the sort of thing we’d like, I put this together:
Randie Jones, Janice Jimenez, Ed Spinardi, Robin Maiorino, Micky Lenahan, Lana Wright, Stefani Mealy, Sheila Livingston
My Photoshop skills leave much to be desired but it still cracks me up. It’s the Mad Men Vanity Fair layout. Here’s the original:
I would have put Wendell and Don’s heads (the retired partners) on the two grumpy old guys on the left but I didn’t have their photos.
Three things I discovered during this process:
- Boys are much easier to alter. You just plop a head on top of the suit and tie and you’re done;
- Girls have way too much skin to match properly;
- I have much to learn about head to body proportions.
Note the change in ratio of male to female office workers since the 50’s. But the boys are still in charge. Hm…
