Playing with Fire….

One evening last year, after returning from work and enjoying dinner, I settled in front of my PC with a cold beer. In the Netherlands, where recycling is a top priority, beers are sold in returnable crates. After finishing, I habitually placed the empty bottles back into the crate.

Being in manufacturing, my mind often delves into engineering questions even during downtime. On this particular evening, I found myself contemplating the design of these crates and decided to sketch my own version. When it came time to add a label, I realized I didn’t have a suitable logo on hand, so I playfully used my company’s logo. I shared the design with my colleagues, expecting it to spark some lighthearted conversation.

Even in the comfort of home, the line between work and leisure can be unexpectedly blurred.
