A lot of Gartner staff have hidden talents outside work. For example in Germany, Senior administrator Sabine Bieder, is an artist and just recently she has done a painting inspired by the Hype Cycle! It hangs in Gartner’s Munich offices and I’m really looking forward to seeing it but for now a photo will have to do.
The colour intensity around the peak of hype uses vibrant Hype Cycle book-cover orange, tapering off into cool Gartner brand blue. The bubbles floating across the piece add a humourous touch. So does that strategic gap in the canvasses between the slope and plateau – chasm crossing perhaps? Simply wonderful.
