HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. — OFM together with “Quartet®,” a unit of ACCO Brands Corporation (NYSE:ACCO) and the world's largest supplier of whiteboards, announced today the winners of the “Do You Doodle?” contest, which searched for the best examples of whiteboard art from offices around the country.
“We were blown away by the quality of the artwork that people made using just a basic office whiteboard and some colored markers,” said Blake Zalcberg, chief executive officer of OFM. “The average American office has a lot of hidden artistic talent that you sometimes only see through doodling.”
Three winners were chosen by a panel of judges based on style, originality and artistic quality:
• First-place winner Moises Campos, of Santa Ana, Calif., drew a portrait of a woman driving a car that called to mind Jazz Age posters and the paintings of Gustav Klimt. He will receive an OFM desk in the 66000 Series and a Quartet® Prestige Plus® DuraMax® Porcelain Magnetic Whiteboard with a Euro™ Frame, plus two 12 packs of assorted color, chisel tip Quartet® EnduraGlide® Dry-Erase Markers.
• Second-place winner Jade Carpenter, of Fayetteville, AR, reproduced the title character from Dr. Seuss’ children’s book, “The Lorax,” standing on a tree stump. She will receive an OFM chair of their choice and a frameless Quartet® iQ™ Whiteboard, plus one 12 pack of EnduraGlide Dry-Erase Markers.
• Third-place winner Yanira Fisher, of Jacksonville, FL, went for a classic abstract doodle of various shapes and patterns in black and white. She will receive a Quartet® Standard Whiteboard with a Silver Aluminum Frame.
“When you’re at the office trying to stay focused, especially during meetings, doodling has been shown to help people stay alert and creative,” added Zalcberg. “We are proud to honor this truly American tradition with this contest.”
