A Look Inside myGini’s New San Francisco Office
myGini, a San Francisco-based fintech company that operates mobile banking app for banks and financial institutions, hired creative design studio Ofist to design their new office located in a historic brick building built in 1858.
“We feel lucky to have a strong core to rely and build on. On the other hand what’s already there is very limiting. The balance we need to provide can be restricting and difficult. Every element to be added, must install itself to the environment without racing with the existing strong character, but get along well with it, enhence and emphasize it. With this basic purpose, we designed the space for its new function and users. Adding the necessary functions for today’s new generation office program, just enough to function for their purpose, for an open, comfortable, friendly, fun, nonhierarchical working space. Very sleek, mostly white, simple, modern forms are added, creating a contrast with the existing homogenous warm colours from yellow, to red and brown and with the strong textures of wood and brick. And some colors and graphics for the branding, enhancing the contrast and lighting up the space. The rest is up to its new inhabitants to settle in and enjoy,” says Ofist
