Photo agency Institute have released a new photo set for licensing: Inside YouTube.
Shot by contributing photographer Gerd Ludwig they say: No stuffy reception desk greets you at the entrance of YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California. Instead, you are more likely to run into a playful, young, multi-ethnic crowd gathered around a foosball table, cheering and taunting each other like school kids at recess. Such is the atmosphere in this young Silicon Valley success-story.
The eco-friendly building sports a “green roof” with live grass. Facilities include a cafeteria, laundry, break areas, and a myriad of distractions from the desk, including a disc-golf course, foosball table, basketball court, large red slide, and mini-golf green. Action figures, toys, squirt guns, stuffed animals, posters, and other kitsch decorate nearly every cubicle in an office environment meant to increase creativity through a relaxed and playful atmosphere.
