Martha Stewart Orientation
I had my Orientation with Martha Stewart Omnimedia yesterday and started my first day as an intern today. We started out in the TV studio and ended up at a pizza party of the new Starrett Lehigh Building. It was everything Martha Stewart should be. Everyone was excited and happy to meet us and so hospitible. But what else would you expect from the Queen of Entertaining?
The building was formerly a factory that has since been gutted and filled with glass paneled offices. They kept all te original windows and built this porch on the top. The view looks out over the Hudson River and Chelsea Piers. It's fabulous! Check out the potted plants! So Zen.
And my favorite...
Yes, the entire rest of the building is as put together. I mean how could it not with all kinds of great stuff everywhere!? There is a great atmosphere of creativity and industry but the people are all really down to earth and great to work with. After some fabulous pizza and sun they sent us cheerfully off to our art directors with goodie bags.
