Late summer, we got the green light to move into our brand new office space. For Hood River locals and those that make it a habit to take weekend trips out our way, this new building is impossible to miss: contemporary angles, natural materials, and jaw-dropping Columbia River views converge to create the coolest new building in Hood River (not to mention we have some awesome neighbors). Huge props to Key Development for the creative vision and the hustle to make it happen.
Since then, we’ve been busy settling in and making this new creative space perfect for our team. We’ve hung art, brought in plants and office dogs, and hatched new campaign and strategy ideas for our growing list of clients. Needless to say, we’re smitten with our new digs and foresee many inspired years of work ahead of us within these walls. Next time you’re in the neighborhood, grab a beer at the brand-new Ferment Brewing Company and swing up for a visit!
After settling in with a fresh couple of coats of Coverall Blue and our trusty Mobil Gas Pegasus, we set our creative sights on bigger projects. A few more cans of paint and some elbow grease later, and both our front wall and great wall became emblazoned with fresh murals.
Another important new housekeeping item high on our list was clinking glasses with our new lineup of top-notch neighbors. We can definitively say we’ll never go hungry for inspired local eats or thirsty for a craft beer around here with pFriem, Solstice Wood Fired Cafe, and Stoked Roasters just down the way and Ferment Brewing and Camp 1805 right in our building. We’ve also loved becoming better acquainted with our next-door neighbors Columbia Riverkeeper and their mission to protect the mighty river just out our front door as well as the creative drive of Dakine and Tofurky. If it’s true what they they say that you become the average of the five people you surround yourself with, we’re pretty lucky to be in such stellar company.
Oh, and just in case you’re wondering, yes, the infamous Hot Wheels conference table has made a strong come back.
