Perch Gets You Excited to Go to Work

I remember the nicest office space I’ve ever worked in.

It was located in Chelsea in a large industrial building and designed by the starchitect Richard Meier, who conceived of an open floor plan — in order to make the environment conducive to collaboration — in his signature stark white, with clean lines. I looked forward to going to work everyday because of the well-designed office space. It wasn’t drab, I wasn’t confined, and it looked nice. I realized how much design affects your productivity. Everything matters, from the layout of the office to the actual supplies you use.

Perch, which was founded by Google alumna Lucy Lyle realized that. She saw how working long days in drab, plastic-filled workspaces illuminated by a bright fluorescent light made out to be obstacles to clear and creative thinking. She wondered, why can’t workspaces be more design driven, which would result in more productivity? Lyle found acked by some of the best e-commerce founders and investors around – including the founders of Casper, Trunk Club, Behance, Bustle, Birchbox, and Venmo.

The 10 best Adam Sandler movies (they’re not all comedies)
From Uncut Gems to Happy Gilmore, these are the movies that have defined Adam Sandler's career to date.
best adam sandler movies ranked adamsandler

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and we know that in part because he's made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he may have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends.

Where does "Creed III" fall on our list of the best "Rocky" and "Creed" movies?
Sylvester Stallone and Michael B. Jordan in Creed.

Good sports movies are fairly easy to come by, but great ones can be almost impossible to find. Over the years, the Rocky and Creed franchises have produced movies that fall into each of those categories. When they're good, the movies in this franchise are among the best fighting movies ever made. Even when they're only okay, though, they're still pretty great sports movies.

With the recent release of Creed III, it feels like the appropriate time to take stock of the entire franchise and determine which Rocky movies rise to the top and which ones sink to the bottom. A great Rocky or Creed movie can take a wide variety of  forms, but what matters most is the emotion it evokes in the viewer, and how authentic those feelings are.
