Claire Goodier Mojher

Age: 24

Company: American Greetings Corporation

Location: Cleveland

Job: Designer/illustrator

At my office: I'm one of the designers who create the art you see on greeting cards, but I've also created party plates, napkins, tablecloths, and temporary tattoos for Halloween. I was surprised by the creative freedom we're allowed here. Designers are encouraged to display their artwork. It definitely makes me more inventive. Most of my inspiration comes from visual cues around me. Plus, they do a lot to accommodate social interaction and relaxation here. We have a new town-square-themed gathering area with a full-service Starbucks, and the company recently purchased property to create a landscaped green space and walking paths. I'm especially looking forward to that!

Pimping my cube: I tend to get most of my ideas looking through the enormous amount of creative material I've collected. Most of what you see on my walls are pieces by artists I've always loved, or discovered in books or on the Internet. I collect scraps of cloth, intricate wrapping paper, and unusual images I find.

Favorite accessory: A valentine that was an original concept of mine, inspired by copy from our writers. The front shows two pairs of shoes sitting at the foot of a sofa and reads, "Beside you." When you open it, it says, "The comfiest place on Earth. Happy Valentine's Day."

Company perk: The dry-cleaning drop-off and delivery service! Oh, and we have our own post office.
