Capital One's New "Garage"

Mecca Design & Production designed and crafted a new flexible, collaborative work space “Garage” for Capital One’s Digital design team, software engineers and product managers, helping to make the most of its innovation space as they quadruple its size at corporate headquarters in Plano, Texas.

This one-of-a-kind, custom environment incorporates garage doors that slide back and forth on red tracks to partition off different-sized areas, a dissected 1941 vintage car just right for a cozy meeting space or solo brainstorming, and the Activity Area, filled with unique seating areas that people may rush to sit in and call dibs: tables made out of giant Tinker Toys, Erector Set pieces, and Legos.

According to Mecca Design and Production’s Kenneth Mecca, “We love getting to take such a unique project from design to build to installation and create a space our clients only dreamed of. It’s great to transform a space to help creative ideas flourish and inspire greater productivity.”

The Podcast Movement Rocks Fort Worth

July 31-August 2nd The Podcast Movement came to Fort Worth and conquered! An amazing, energetic group of people took to the stage to present inspirational podcasting practices. The unwritten theme of the weekend: Be authentic. Be YOU. Around 1000 podcasters & future podcasters attended the event.

Mecca Design was up to the task of creating the stage for the speakers. There was a secret removable compartment right in the middle of the stage, so that the ballroom could be split into two sessions. Our space and money saving solution allowed the main speaker room to grow for the keynote speakers' inevitably larger audiences. With the room able to be split, more valuable lectures were available to attendees.

We are happy that we got to be a part of this great event by building and installing the stage.

Summer at the Dallas Arboretum

Click image to enlarge.

Summer at the Arboretum features the return of "Flower Houses: Fairy Tales with a Texas Twist." The flower village features four topiary houses up to 15-feet-tall and are currently enveloped in red, white and blue flowers. So glad we got to help complete the picture with stars, the Jalenpeno Man, the oil derrick, the javelinas, and the coyote!

Topiary flower houses and Texas-inspired children’s stories delight visitors this summer as the Dallas Arboretum continues its year-long theme of “Deep in the Hearts of Texans.” Completing the vignettes and bringing the stories to life, Mecca Design and Production, a boutique scenic element and services design/build group, created a coyote, two javelinas, an oil derrick and a large “Jalepeno Man” for a tale based on “The Gingerbread Man.” Mecca also crafted 7 ft. white stars of the Lone Star State to adorn the topiary houses that have a cool, dustless paint booth finish. It’s a summer story wonderland with blooming memories and topiary longhorn cattle as guests wander the flower village and gather for story times.

Happy Summer, Dallas! Enjoy the warmth :)

Mecca helps Fairfield Residential "Set the Stage"

Fairfield Residential sets the stage for its national leadership conference in Nashville evoking the feel of a honky-tonk for "The Rhythm of Leadership."

Mecca Design and Production crafted a stage décor package placing a 24’ x 12’ tall barn center stage and gave a nod to the “Grand Ole Opry” with reclaimed barn wood, electric guitars, a giant 2D microphone, and strings of lights. Award-winning Fairfield Residential is known for quality apartment living in some of the most desirable neighborhoods across the nation.

Glad we could help to "lead" Fairfield residential to a great conference!
