Casual Fridays: Liferay Sign Language

Company Blogs October 12, 2012 By Ronald Sarayudej

Things are chugging along here on the webteam side - there's nothing better than getting a lot of work done and it also being Friday @ 5pm.

Not everyone gets a chance to visit the Magical Kingdom (Liferay US Office) in their lives, but if you are ever so lucky then you might notice lots of humorous, yet functional signs hanging about.  These were made, by request from Brian Chan, by our fantabulous graphic design team.

Have a great weekend, and see you on Monday.

And I thought everybody was actually working from home. :-)

Yes! We have laptops and free coffee. Just don't combine the two - I've done that three times now and the keyboard starts to act very strange. And IT and HR will act very strange too.

Very creative, indeed. I'd wish I could visit the Liferay US offices, once in my lifetime or even better to work at Liferay (perhaps I am in my dreams).

@Hitoshi, yes, I thought they remoted but from one picture above, they don't. Well, they are cool....all of these stuff.

@Ronald, thanks for letting us know that exist Liferay offices.

I congrat everyone working at Liferay for having such a big product.

Thanks for the pics Ron, I am looking forward to visiting the Magic Kingdom next week!

@Carlos - Liferay is hiring all the time, so you never know ;-) But either way, thankfully we have a strong community where you can always reach us directly!

@Jeff - nice. See ya soon!

Could you release those signs as PSD files (or in some other format) under CC licence? :>
Posted on 10/19/12 6:22 AM.
Ooooh, great idea. I will check with the office and see what we can do.

The "blue zone" - aka, the quiet zone is overseen by some mean looking librarians (Mr T, Wolverine, Italian Yoda...)

@Szymon - we have approval to offer the signs out to the community, it's being worked on now. I'll post a link here when they're ready for download. Thanks for the great idea!

@Paul - Yeah, a lot of the characters in the signs can probably do some serious damage... even Will Ferrell =)

Just wondering but what kind of other zones beside the "blue zone" are there? Are there more signs?
"red zone" for brainstorming, "green zone" for lunch and relaxation? :-)

"red zone" =) I think maybe we can request that for the Marketing/Design space being built out right now.

@Hitoshi and Alice - can there be a "black" zone for post-lunch naps?

@Szymon - we have a .pdf for you, with love from design department! (cut and paste link): http://www.liferay.com/documents/1879763/0/liferay_character_rules.pdf/3f287f72-­4860-4a6d-b5c7-359931b71ad1

Awesome! Could you share all other signs too, please :>

Also, do you have any Liferay motivational posters? My LR development team could do with a few emoticon

Szymon, yes, we're going to make a good deal of graphics available - we're setting up a share zone now. Standby.

Also, good idea about the motivational posters - maybe Italian Yoda pointing at you and saying, "Use the Liferay".

Having Yoda say "The Force is with you" seems more motivational. :-)
