Vidal Partnership Inspires Other NY Highrise Workers with Duct Tape

Santiago Luno Lupo and Percy Bustos, who work as copywriter and art director, respectively, at midtown’s Vidal Partnership, recently felt the urge to inspire their fellow Manhattan office drones.

While their resources were limited to five windows and a bunch of stray duct tape rolls, they managed to turn the materials at hand into a personal project called “Windowisdom” complete with its own Tumblr page.

Here’s your clip:

The project is, in its own creators’ words, a weekly five-word message designed to inspire others who have to take the subway (or, God forbid, the PATH train) home from their own high-rises every night.

We’re not huge fans of smiling, so we can’t determine the ultimate effect such messages would have on Vidal’s neighbors in the A&E building.

We do sometimes feel certain sensations when glancing out of our office windows at the Guy & Gallard, Chase bank and second-story gym across the street. But those sensations are, in order: hunger, poverty and shame.
