CBS Interactive (formerly CNET Networks) is the premier online content network with the information and entertainment people crave. Thier brands dive deep into the things people care most about across entertainment, tech, news, business, and sports.

With hundreds of millions of unique visitors from around the world each month, CBS Interactive is a global top 10 web property and is the largest premium content network online. Thier unparalleled collection of sites are extremely powerful vehicles for advertisers to reach highly attractive, targeted demographics.

Our work with CBS Interactive was especially rewarding, as we were able to help them with several art and framing projects involving employees and their families. It comes as no surprise to us that in 2008 CBS Interactive, formerly CNET, was voted one of the "100 Best Places to Work in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times, Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal and East Bay Business Times. In fact, CBS Interactive ranked 12th in the area, and after working with executives and staff at this fine company, we understand why.

When CBS Interactive hosts Bring Your Kids to Work Day, the children’s visit to the workplace is enjoyed long after the memorable day. During the 2008 event, children used poster paint to make a handprint collage directly on the wall of a mezzanine lobby. Our challenge was to help CBS Interactive preserve and protect this memory. We chose a 6’ x 6’ piece of ultraviolet protective acrylic (TruVue OP2) to cover the mural. Instead of mounting the acrylic directly to the wall, we chose architectural stand-off hardware to float the acrylic over the art, giving it a three dimensional museum quality appearance. We added a brushed silver plaque to commemorate the event.

In advance of an Alumni Event, we were given a collection of photos of previous employees, chosing 120 images for an Alumni Day presentation. We framed these in a multiple window mats and silver frames using orange circular motifs to match the large orange recessed circle in the lobby. The frames were fitted with ultraviolet protective acrylic to protect the photos. The framed photos and memorabilia were placed above and next to three-dimensional wall lettering.

Art Among Us is a new CBS Interactive program that invites staff members to exhibit their own art at corporate headquarters. In consultation with members of the CBS Interactive team, our installer and one of our lead designers positioned 35 pieces of art throughout the building. This first phase of the project was a great success, generating public and staff interest even as we were installing it. Employee art promotes a culture of shared appreciation and empowerment as members of the CBS Interactive team celebrate each other’s talents. We commend CBS Interactive for launching this unique program!
