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 Writer?
Have you single-handedly filled enough notebooks to deforest the Amazon? Do you have graffiti charges on your criminal record because you took it upon yourself to correct a poorly written sign? Do you have to suppress your gag reflex when someone says “utilize” instead of “use”? Can you think of a hundred different ways to sell the same product? And just as many ways to word the same idea? Do you believe a well-written ad can have no copy?
Are you an Art Director?
Does trite advertising make you shout loud, angry words that echo off your impeccably decorated walls? Do you know more about Adobe Creative Cloud than you do about your own family? Do you consider your annual holiday card a design opportunity? Do you collect fonts the way writers’ sweaters collect dog hair? The way that guy who was on Hoarders that one time collected rats? Have you ever sat motionless before your computer, debating the relative merits of PMS 2757 versus PMS 2767? Are you ready to shepherd an integrated advertising campaign from its first ketchup-stained napkin sketches to its final color-corrections?
