Staff

We've stuffed your mailbox with our packages. We've left giant boxes on your front step. We've filled your houses with weird and (sometimes) useful junk. We've even wrapped you in our own line of tee-shirts. Well, now, we here at Woot are going to leave our mark on something else.

The walls of our own friggin' office.

 

No, seriously: down in Dallas, we've got this huge building emblazoned with a Woot logo. But in Seattle, there's almost nothing in our office that indicates our presence aside from one little banner and the sweet stench of nerd wit... or what we thought was nerd wit. Then we cleaned out the mini-fridge and the smell went away.

But that's all changed today! Today, we got a mural! Based on artist Dan Zettwoch's designs for our shipping boxes, rendered in black and green vinyl, and applied to the wall using a blow torch (!), the scene shows a booming, Woot-controlled metropolis. It's a city with no official name, but we like to call it "The Internet." (Take a look and suggest a name in the comments if you like.)
 

 

 

 

 

So yeah, today is a proud day for the Seattle Woot team. Our home looks a little more like home. Now, if only we could get our cleaning staff (Roombas) motivated enough (charged) to pick up a little bit, things might start feeling half-comfortable around here.

See plenty more "making of" pics at the Woot Flickr page.

Is the building open to all of us less-cool Amazon employees? ;)

If you've got a badge, c'mon over and say hello! We're in Ruby. If you don't have a badge, you'll have to wait for us outside the bar like that creepy guy we have the restraining order against.

Did you know shirt.woot ships internationally? Get you some!

The name of the city is Ozymandias.

Sometimes a box of cigars is just a box of cigars.

My vote is for wootopia as well, would have suggested it myself if I hadn't been too slow.

In a shamefully overt homage to Green Acres, you should name it "Wooterville"!

How about Otisburg!

Lex Luthor: Costa Del Lex. Luthorville. Marina del Lex. Otisburg... Otisburg?

Otis: Miss Teschmacher, she's got her own place.

Lex Luthor: Otisburg?

Otis: It's a little bitty place.
