Unconventional Office Decor - your clients definitely remember you

Picture of Unconventional Office Decor - your clients definitely remember you
In the legal field (yes I'm a lawyer so don't hold that against me), offices are often filled with diplomas, admissions to this bar or that, and other "me wall" self-promotion type of decorations. My office is a little different. I do not have a single admissions or diploma on the wall. They are all in my closet. Instead, I filled the office with stuff that I enjoy.  My clients get to see the real me instead of a fake persona or totally self-centered lawyer. 

And for those of you  who have such "me walls" please do not take offense. I know that the professional impression that must be projected is of importance and certain clients will simply not trust a lawyer who does not prominently display their achievements. Some of you may also be uncomfortable with such displays, but your managing partner may insist. However, when I started my own firm I vowed to not hold back and clients can either accept or reject as they see fit. Interestingly enough, most enjoy my office and its decorations are talking points which usually make them smile. I was surprised at how many responded with something similar to "I'm a huge Star Wars fan too. Wish I could decorate my office like this."  So, the response is positive and I intend to keep it up but thought I would share.

Step 1: Pick a center piece

The main talking point in the office is a 6 foot in diameter vinyl Death Star on the wall by the conference table. It is the first thing most people see when they enter.  

Step 2:

Next is a wall with Star Wars art symmetrically placed. I think some of them are too close to each other, but I haven't taken the time to redo them. The center picture is a lithograph given to me by a client. He was so taken with my office originally he said he saw the artwork and knew he had to buy it for me. Nice guy.

now to be different. use a circuit making pen or conductive ink pen of your choice. trace route of power to led(s) to light up the main weapon of the death star. and it can be powered by flexible solar panels. or go the tech way an go with a ipad or similar choice of gear to change the lighting sequence.

Wish I could say it was some great DIY process, but I bought it and it came that way. It's a vinyl image with self-adhesive on the backing. You just have to be careful to get it on without wrinkles or bubbles.

Mine's from Fathead and you can get it on ebay cheaper than amazon. Check here. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Death-Star-REAL-...

But there are others, so take a look at:

I put a Falcon one in my workshed at home, but that was a little outside of this instructable so I didn't go into it.
