It must be a lot of fun working in Ford’s design studios. Not only do you get to imagine some of the coolest cars and trucks and watch them come to life, but you also get to build some really creative snowmen.

The folks in charge of design quality, color management, and design business marketing obviously had a trip to the beach in mind.

Well, they aren’t really made of snow, but when Ford’s various design teams were given three chunks of Styrofoam and charged with building replica snowmen, the results were—as you might expect—pretty creative.

Ford clearly knows how to get the most out of its artistic personnel, as they created this little contest as a team-building exercise. Nine teams were given three pieces of white foam and asked to “work together, document the process, and have fun.”

Three of the snowmen will be delivered to two local Michigan orphanages and a senior citizens’ home. The rest will be in cold storage at Ford’s design studios, but thanks to Ford’s PR team we can all enjoy photos of these creations.
