Do-It-Yourself Decorating

Gaia Interactive, creator of social role-playing site Gaia Online, allows employees to decorate the office in almost any way they want. About a third of employees are artists or otherwise creative people who design a virtual world, says Elaine Kitagawa, Gaia's chief operating officer. "We allow our artists to basically take our product off-line and express their creativity on the four walls of Gaia," she says. Walls are painted with vampires, flowers, Japanese anime, and Gaia characters. The finance team decorated its area with a Zen rock garden. Since Gaia rents its space, "when we move out, we'll probably have to paint it white again," says Kitagawa.
