Hanson Dodge Creative has doubled its staff in the past two years, and we’ve needed that additional creative horsepower just to figure out where to squeeze in all the people. Last year, we located new people in conference rooms, hallways, and various nooks throughout our existing two floors of the historic Mercantile building. We had to put desks in some places we’re not proud of.
But those days are gone.
As of this fall, our Interactive department has 2,700 square feet of its own space, complete with smoked glass Herman Miller studio furniture. When the wine store on the first floor moved out, we took the opportunity to seize the locale and give our Web producers, interactive strategists and coders a new home. They have expressed their deep appreciation, and noted that rubber darts stick particularly well to the Herman Miller glass.
Now that those 20 people are snug in their stylish workstations, we are beginning to reclaim the space they vacated upstairs. Our Feng Shui is free to flow unrestricted again, bringing order where chaos once reigned.
And scooter crashes are down significantly.
