The flip chart has had its chips and now the whiteboard is going down. The boardroom doesn’t look too safe either. A new paint is encouraging workers to reinvent the office rules and get creative by writing on the walls. The passage, the chill room, the desks and the doors – absolutely anything can become a message board, so you had better think of something to put there. Like a good idea, for example.
IdeaPaint is itself rather a clever idea. It is a clever new paint that, once applied to a smooth surface, forms a dry erase surface. Easy to write on using a whiteboard marker, and easy to erase, but if you use your Permanent Marker, you’re going to need another coat of paint.
On the other hand, don’t throw out that worn-out whiteboard. Millions of them end up in landfills every year and no, they’re not biodegradable. Paint it with IdeaPaint and it will be good for another 100 brainstorms.
