"I wanted to create a space where it didn't feel like we were at work. It has to be fun, otherwise what's the point?" says Chris Eichenseer, founder of the graphic design studio and branding agency Someoddpilot. In 2011 the company set up shop in a historic building next to the el tracks in Wicker Park. The loft had a past life as Weirder Park, an underground party space known for keggers and general art-student mayhem. Eichenseer and his team revamped the raw space themselves, sanding the floors and painting the walls, but he consciously decided to keep some of the rough edges, eschewing the sleek interiors typical of design agencies. "You can roll up your sleeves and make a mess or do whatever you have to do," Eichenseer says.
