The people make the place.
The place makes the people happy.
Every morning, bells ring out through the hundred-year-old building once known Indianapolis Public School No. 9, and creative minds get to work. This former schoolhouse is now home to us: a mid-sized, Midwestern agency that was anti-established in 1983. And over the years, we’ve managed to fill its halls with a lot of smart, talented, we-feel-lucky-to-know-them people.
The fact that so many of them stay on for years is a testament to the office being a pretty great one. And we’re not the only ones who think so. Ad Age and Outside Magazine have included us on their Best Places to Work lists year after year, and Adweek called us “the one where you’d like to work” in their United States of Ad Agencies.
We’re proud of the accolades, but more than that, we’re proud of the people who helped us earn them. Thanks to them, we’re not only a great place to work but a place to make great work.
Are you a designer?
Do you buy products simply for the packaging? Do you eat at restaurants, not for the food, but because your favorite designer did their menu? Would you be honored if someone called you a Young Jerk? Can a bad line break send you into a ra-
ge. Do you work fast, and refine slowly? Are you as excited about an idea as a logo?
Are you an Account Manager?
First one in, last one home? “The responsible one” in groups you hang out in? Can you jibe with clients? Are you inclined to walk over to the writer and politely discuss whether the word “jibe” fits brand tonality? Do you question insight and strategy behind ads you encounter, to the point it annoys your family?
Was “review Y&L job posting” a line item on a to-do list you made while handling a bunch of timelines, budgets, billing statements and status reports on your current clients? Do you like cleaning up messes? Do you prefer preventing messes?
Betcha we've been talking about how we really need someone like you around here. It’s just that we haven’t gotten around to posting the job yet.
So go ahead, and introduce yourself.
