Local graphic design start up, Killer Infographics, has been nominated in the new “Geekiest Office Space” category at this year’s Geekwire Awards. The field has been narrowed down to five offices that showcase a unique office space “where geeky=cool,” featuring things like decorational cryptograms, swanky furniture and hidden rooms behind bookcases. The winners will be determined by public online voting and will be announced at the awards event on May 9.
Killer Infographics is located between Ballard and Fremont and started as a self funded venture by co-founders Amy Balliett and Nick Grant. The collaborative company has since grown from two to twenty employees in two years. Killer Infographics artists provide infographic design services to clients to create attention grabbing web content.
In terms of their claim to the geeky office space crown, Balliett confirms that everything in the office has been built by the Killer Infographics team themselves. “The secret bookshelf door, the desks, and all of the rooms have been customized by all of the employees. We’re true bootstrappers,” says Balliett. Check out their video here to see the office and the Killer Infographics team for yourself.
Ballard web and mobile app company 47 Degrees is also in the running for the “Geekiest Office” category. Their Shilshole Ave office boasts a rooftop deck with water views.
Voting for the Geekwire Awards is now open to the public here and will close April 30.
