Crafting with local Boys and Girls Clubs to bring holiday cheer to local children
For the last 20 years, Herman Miller & Geiger have partnered with the Boys and Girls clubs in an event called “We Care.” The event brings holiday cheer to thousands of children by recruiting the local design community who create “craft stations” that enable the kids to make holiday gifts for their family, teachers, and friends while bringing the spirit of the holidays to the children with treats, games and special activities.
We love participating each year and thank Herman Miller & Geiger for organizing this event!
ID Studios Celebrates Halloween in Style as we dressed up and carved pumpkins. This year, one of the designers brought in ribbon and many people picked up on the Beauty Pageant Contestant theme.
ID Studios In Costume 2015
The pumpkin carving contest is a favorite. Teams were selected and pumpkins provided then the creative minds at ID Studios turned to their task of creating a memorable pumpkin in an hour. Here’s what they came up with:

From left to right: “Whale and her Calf” “Mummy” “Trumpkin” and, of course, a “Minion”.
The good people of TS Restaurants corporate office voted and picked Minions as the winner. Congrats to Steven and his team!
Today at ID Studios we held our annual pumpkin carving contest. We all started with a whole pumpkin and a set of carving tools but aren’t limited to only using the tools; we can use anything around the office to decorate the pumpkin. In year’s past people have even brought in their own tools or items from home.
Tell us your favorite!
This year everyone stuck with things around the office. Here is what the creative minds of our staff “spooked” up.
1. “Monday Mourning” Inspired by the day of the dead, this beautifully detailed pumpkin included graveyard accouterments created with fabric from our library.
2. “A Pumpkin’s Life for Me” Yo, ho, yo, ho. With the ocean just outside our window, it’s no wonder this team came up with an imaginative pirate ship accessorized with chop sticks from the kitchen!
3. “Holy Ghost” Using floating bags woven in and out of carved holes and finished with googly eyes, this pumpkin screams Halloween.
4. “It’s Lunch Time”appropriately named since our contest takes place at lunch, the stem creates the perfect fusion of burger and pumpkin.
The contest will be judged by an independent jury and social media so visit our sites and weigh in.
 The winner by ONE VOTE was #4, “It’s Lunch Time” second place went to #1 “Monday Mourning” and third went to “A Pumpkin’s Life For Me”.Thank you to everyone who voted on social media.
