Dude these are great photographs. Your email title is very accurate, “A Little Nostalgic.”

I love how you guys put “x’s” next to the names of people on the height chart to denote quittage.

I remember walking through that place months before we moved in. Steve asked if I thought it would be inspiring to creative people to work in a facility like this. I told him what inspires creatives are clients who want to do great work, disciplined and insightful briefs, reasonable budgets, and comfortable time frames. Frankly, the place depressed me.

Just seeing the pictures reminds me of this museum to a man and a woman’s ego. — Bill

Evocative and oddly affecting collection of photographs. It suggests a modern Bawlmer ghost story, rife with melancholia and hollow promises. There is a great Shakespearean tale about Eisner’s hubris and fall that will never be written, alas.

Very touching. No matter what Eisner will always hold a place in my heart. It is where I grew up. I little piece of all of us died on November 10.

Mik, I owned you on that pool table.

It’s weird now to see the height chart. An outsider would think it’s evidence of a fun work environment.

Really though, it was just acting out from boredom and anxiety.

Thanks for posting the pics, Brian.

One thought on “In Memory

  1. BIll M. (ex-creative director) says:

    Don’t know why I went here this morning,
    but it’s like walking through the the dark hallways of your old high school.
    You think about what it was and what it could have been.

    For the Eisners, style ruled over content.
    They had to draw conclusions for people, rather than let people come to conclusions.
    They needed to broadcast they had class, rather than show it.
    They’d rather steal awards rather than run a process that won awards.

    I love the line, “I cannot hear what your saying because your actions are speaking so loud.”
    For the Eisners, obviously something was missing.
    Now everything is missing.

    As Steve used to say, “It’s all about the tour.”
    And the tour ended November 10, 2006.

    Bill M.
