The ethos of Talentica is built on putting their heart into a product, enabling collaboration and taking shots, missing most and acing a few. Inspired by the buzzing culture of start-ups, it is the kind of place that is comfortable in its skin and doesn’t care a lot about getting it right or wrong, as long as it is getting there.
To match its mercurial spirit, Leaf Design wanted to create a space inspired by its own unique culture, based on the values of the company and its founders.
Thus, a creative and stimulating environment was born – a space that invited people to approach problems innovatively. Buoyed by the free flowing ideas in a modern workplace, Talentica emerged as a start-up culture that encouraged cross-pollination of ideas, pushing boundaries and freewheeling of ideas.
Leaf’s team threw around ideas to create an environment that gave people a culture to play and a chance to express their ideas and perspective. Environmental communication ideas were built to bring in aspects of the start-up culture in the mix.
Creativity, positivity and colors make up the entrance wall installation. It makes a great impression on guests and clients as they enter Talentica’s terrain. For employees, it sets the tone for a positive day, every day.
What’s an ideal meeting ground? A comfortable and free space that inspires people to roll with ideas. No Judgements. No inhibitions. No over-thinking. Just spontaneity! The meeting rooms at Talentica are crafted like a freewheeling space – just like a garage, a basement or a backyard garden: open to experimentation and simply toying around. They’re personal and intimate zones for innovative thinking and experimentation.
The design team used innovative and rough materials like peg boards, metal sheets, wood, and rough texture canvas to achieve the ‘worn-out-garage-look’ right. To further enhance the mindset of raw and fresh ideas, the walls were made out of rough concrete and white brick texture.
Each meeting room echoes the daring beliefs of a start-up, translated through colour, patterns, and unique names. Patterns on the glass door were derived from UniCode symbols used in computer languages and arranged in different patterns.
For conference rooms, they wanted to create a clean and unobtrusive space that allows for minds to think on a blank canvas and allows heavy discussions to be light. They splashed it with simple words that had a slight philosophical twist and inspiring meaning.
Keeping it minimalistic, the team arranged keyboard keys in a crossword format over a metallic tray. This was coupled with graphics to express the abstract sense.
To unwind, the café recreated an informal relaxed zone – a place to fuel awesome thoughts with great food and a greater ambience, the perfect recipe for whipping up a good time. Inspired by a modern-day American café, they maximised the double storey elevation by creating a highway-type look that allowed conversations to be born, grow bigger and better.
Talentica United Club:
Telentica’s recreational area creates a zone inspired by sports bars, by printing different graphics on planks of wood that are hanged on a brick wall. This space was designed to encourage employees to take part in extra curricular activities outside work. The Club has its own logo that it’s used by employees in any sport activity they take part in.
