Start-up Fashion At Radialpoint

Start-up Fashion At Radialpoint, IT Company Where I Work

Marketing guys from Radialpoint, a software company where I work, read a Business Insider article about a “The Startup Guy” fashion collection by Banana Republic and decided to share our opinion on the subject. Let’s see what came out of it – now with my comments.

Fashionista By Night.. Software Developer By Day!

But first a short digression! As I said, I work as a software developer for a software company Radialpoint. Most of the time I write code for various projects using various programming languages: Java, JavaScript, C++, etc. It is fun, because I love doing diverse things. And speaking of diversity… Sometimes I do even more different kind of stuff that has nothing in common with my regular job. I organize Hackatons (events in which software developers work intensively on software projects that last only a few days), play in promo videos, and sometimes help creating posts for the company blog.  This time I was a fashion photographer and took portraits of my colleagues.

Start-up Fashion… Where Is It Coming From?

So, our marketing guys stumbled upon a Business Insider article about a “The Startup Guy” fashion collection by Banana Republic and came up with a funny idea to show how in fact the start-up guys dress up. You can read it the post here: “What “Startup” Fashion Looks Like at Radialpoint”. I took pictures of these guys in their regular outfits while they were in their regular fun mood  :))) In addition to the pictures, out marketing team asked each of us to provide a funny fact about ourselves, so the post turned out to be quite amusing 🙂

On Instagram: By @gozmike “NLP expert engineer by morning – demanding Russian fashion photographer by night. Who knew?”

You may ask: Why  do you guys compare yourself with start-ups when you are a clearly long established company? Well, Radialpoint nurtures a very innovative culture by doing cutting edge technology projects, organizing regular Hackatons, hosting tech meet-ups, and many other things. And yes, we do have our internal start-up called Support Kit.  These guys work pretty much independently from the rest of us and are responsible for their own risks.

Vintage Overall And Scary Double

Of course, a portrait of mine also presents in the portrait gallery! Everybody agreed the gallery would be incomplete without my picture 🙂  Here I am posing with our Double, a telepresence robot that scares hell out of me :)))

Start-up Fashion At Radialpoint

I am wearing a vintage denim romper which I bought in a thrift store in San-Francisco. I paired it with my favourite  pair of teal T.U.K creepers and a peach cropped top by Forever 21.  On the romper, you see attached a few handmade pins made by Shtikanchiki from Ukraine. I like to wear colours, though I am not sure I always coordinate them well (peach tee with fuchsia socks!). The watch on my left hand was found in a thrift store. It has a leather strap, its mechanism is made in Japan, and it is waterproof… guess how much it cost me 😉 50 cents. Yes, 50 cents! The best thrift find ever! The bright green ring is a vintage find from Fripe Fabrique – they have an awesome choice of vintage jewellery!

The Double wears an Uber t-shirt in stylish neon green that matches its green light on the bottom and a moustache! Double is our local techie hipster 🙂 The face on the Double’s screen belongs to Andrew, a colleague of mine who’s hiding behind two laptops on one of the pictures below.

Here are 14 pictures of my dear colleagues. Aren’t they funny :))) These are the faces behind Support Kit, Reveal,and the other products of Radialpoint.
In case you missed the previous link to the Radialpoint post with funny facts about each of us, I put it here once again 🙂
