Interior design is of great importance for working environments. Professional designers aspire to create beautiful, stylish and comfortable offices for the company staff. Reasonable design of working environments is capable of stimulating effective work and even inspiring the workforce. Furthermore, the office interior serves to demonstrate the philosophy of the company. That's why we invite you to look "inside" the game industry and see amazing photos of the offices of the video games market's giants - Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft and Valve.
