Thanks for sharing Office Snapshots Gabriel! I started OS back in 2007 as a side project while I was a history teacher and have been running it full-time for the last ~4 years. The main functionality is basically to look at offices - either by the projects themselves or by the photos. Browse offices: https://officesnapshots.com/offi... Browse photos: https://officesnapshots.com/photos/ People are often interested to know that all advertising is sold in-house as well as self-hosted so readers get ads which are laser-targeted to the content (like a magazine) and don't have to deal with creepy ad networks. Happy to hear your impressions - thank you!

Site has been around for years. I work in the commercial furniture vertical and we use the site to show ideas to our end user clients. Much better than KONTOR by far as these are actual full settings

@workstationw thanks for the comment Bill. I've always thought that focusing on the office design as a whole - with a nice description - was the best way to help people understand the context of what they were looking at.

Awesome idea -- would be nice to filter by country/city

@kevinyun you should be able to do that at the /offices/ page using the options on the left

@stephensearer Gotcha -- I was on the Photos section. Thanks

While (most of) these are far nicer than my home office, I'm still all about that remote work life :) - have you considered adding a "Coworking Space" section for remote nerds like me? Great resource, btw!

@seymourgroup there should be a coworking option under the industry facet on /offices/ - I could definitely try to add more in the future too. Good suggestion, thanks!

@stephensearer cool! I think you have a brilliant framework for visually comparing office concepts... having a separate section or maybe even a microsite to highlight best practices and visually stunning coworking places would probably resonate with a certain segment that cares a lot about this stuff. Also, there's a bit of scrambling about among popular coworking/shared office spaces to try and differentiate themselves... I'm sure they'd love the opp to do so. Thanks again for a sweet site!

Strange to see the contrast between how much or how little effort companies put into their work spaces. I've only experienced the latter.

Looks like they curate some great design. Kontor (@kontorhq) is another great site that also does this with office spaces and products.

Okay, I see... Seemed frivolous at first, but then saw the products section. This is EXACTLY, or much closer to the mark, anyway, of what advertising should be. A true experiential value add, rather than a rage-inducing bummer of an interruption or watering down of content and integrity. Nice!

@elizabethhunker haha, agreed! We also contextually tag photos with the products that appear in them to help you know what you're looking at -- here's a good example: https://officesnapshots.com/phot...
