06 News Building Update May H1

We're packing the boxes ...

It wasn't too long ago that the Lyric building was some columns and elevator shafts.

Now it's starting to look like our new Madison home.

Work has begun on the interior space and we anticipate moving in mid-August 2017. We will occupy sections of the first, second and third floors of the commercial part of the building.

The walls are going up. We anticipate moving in sometime in August.

Our new address at 1010 E. Washington Avenue will put us closer to the heart of downtown and venues such as Breese Stevens Field, which is just next door.

The East Washington corridor has seen an explosion of new development in recent years and we are excited to be part of this vibrant neighborhood. Many of our staff will be able to bike and walk to work. We'll also have a plethora of great restaurants and bars nearby, which opens up lots of new opportunities for entertaining our clients.

And the closer? Indoor heated parking!

When good design goes bad
As a graduate from Stanford, I participate in a fairly active “design” email list originating from the various design programs. The email list allows fellow Stanford alum to post questions or raise topics related to the broader field of innovation and is invariably a fascinating source of trends and introspection.
Virtual empathy
A few months back, I wrote a short blog post about the power of VR and using it within the design process.

What's in a whiteboard? More than you might think
There are very few things I miss about our former home at Buttonwood Drive in Madison ... except for the employees-only bathroom.
