#AgencyInsider: Karsh Hagan, Denver
Today, we continue our ongoing feature — Agency Insider. We all know agencies have amazing physical spaces. But unless you work at a specific shop, you might never get a chance to see how cool they truly are. Until now. Email us at the@denveregotist for details on having you agency featured.
An ad agency is defined by its people, its clients, its work and its space, or, the Homefront, as we call it.
Karsh Hagan outgrew our space near Coors Field and we needed to find a new home suitable to carry on our 36-year tradition of outstanding work. We found the perfect building in the Denver Design Center, formerly the home of Wells Music. You can still hear the eloquent sound of the grand piano when you walk in the door! Good karma!
We designed our new home with these characteristics in mind:
Work. As you enter our home, you will find a montage of past and present client work that serves as our commitment to create national quality work for blue chip clients that has been a hallmark at KH since day one.
Open Space. Since we are collaborators at heart, we wanted easy accessible interaction, so there are few offices and lots of conference rooms.
Light. We like Colorado sun. It inspires us with energy and it is conducive to a mood inspiring the brilliance of a great idea.
Fun. Of course, the courtyard is the perfect setting for a regulation size bocce ball court, an ideal setting for a beer or wine with a client or vendor.
Awards. No agency is worth its salt without awards. We have 36 years-worth of awards adorning our awards wall which represents our work with Clios, One Shows, Art Directors and more.
Culture. As in your home, the kitchen remains a center attraction, the central gathering place for a bite, a meeting, a party or a place to kick back and relax. It is a natural place where big ideas are born.
There is a world renowned gathering every year in Austin, Texas called South by Southwest (SxSW). It has become the forum for fresh thinking, innovation, ideas and creativity. Many of our staffers have been able to attend. We have adopted this spirit and we have affectionately christened our new home as South by South Broadway (SxSB).
We are very happy in our new home and we are settling in nicely. So, stop by for a visit. There is a cold one, a glass of vino and a Bocce Ball game waiting for your arrival. We hope to see you soon.
