Tech Leaders Showing Employee Appreciation with Custom Oil Paintings by Noblified

As much as I believe in employee incentives and rewards for doing a great job I think a Custom Oil Painting may be a tad over the top. If you are curious on who started this trend, it would be our good friends at Yelp! It seems to be a growing trend in Silicon Valley with Twitter, Google, AirBNB and various other technology companies also starting to do this as an employee incentive as well.

Below is the original article posted today from Noblified with more information on this new and growing trend for technology companies.

Note from Founder: Hi-tech chic is officially launched!

NIna profileWelcome to Hi-tech chic, a project I have been working on for a while. Hi-tech chic is a site that combines tech and fashion together in one place. The site will feature product reviews, press releases on up and coming consumer products, news, recaps of industry events and eventually gift guides (just in time for the holidays).

I am happy to announce as of today there are no pages under construction!!! Hi-tech chic is up and running, we even have ads! It still has minor tweaks since Hi-tech chic is new but for the most part the site is complete.

The last piece of the puzzle was the collage of pictures on the “about” page which was completed late last night. I went through over 1,000 pictures I took in the 6 years of writing for tech to make the perfect collage.  I hope it shows not only do I have fun but that I have a long history of writing, reviewing random products in tech and attending industry events.

My writing style for Hi-tech chic will be no different than cutegeek but includes a broader audience with adding fashion to the mix. I also have high hopes of building a team of geek fashionistas that would like to contribute and write for us as we continue to grow.

I would love for you all to take a tour of the site and let me know what you think. What we could improve on or what you like about it. You can send feedback to nina@hi-techchic.com, @HiTechchic, on Facebook or on our “contact” page. Also follow us on twitter and Facebook for up to date posts or news.

Thank you for visiting Hi-tech chic!

Nina Ricci Pena, Founder and Head Writer of Hi-tech chic
