At work, I sometimes have the freedom to do some design work. It started with the Calendar Wall in the coworking space, where we advertise upcoming events on magnetic panels. I would get up on a step ladder every month and individually write the month, days, and dates with paint markers. This became very time-consuming, so I created magnets for both the months and dates (the days shouldn't need to move, so those are written directly on the panels). I don't have photos of the final month signs, but we keep the 11 that are not being used in a portfolio in the team office. The June/July/August image includes three of the magnet signs.
There are also a few chalkboard paint walls, which we've used to advertise big events and keep team projects organized. I posted a time-lapse a little while back of that process. When I first started, I also made a task calendar with velcro detachable name tags. I've since remade the board with magnet strips.
Aside from that, occasionally I've gotten pulled into projects to design a card or a logo for an event or program. While most of my job is office related, it's fun to be able to incorporate my design interests here and there. :)
