This pretty much sums up the layout of DBC’s office space. We’ve discussed in many of our advertising classes the way that typical full-service advertising agencies are laid out. One floor for traffic, one floor for account services, another for creative, and so on. At DBC, the creative may not have their own floor, but everyone collectively shares one creative space. In the front of the office lives the media, PR, and account services, and in the back, resides the wondrous creative department.
For the most part, there are no individual offices for the members of the creative department – this way everyone can not only be in constant communication, but also continuously share and bounce ideas off of each other throughout the day.
Is anyone else’s internship office set up in a similar way? The last two places I interned at were not set up like so. I think creative sharing a space is ideal, as there is a constant energy flowing that prevents the space from feeling static or stuffy. Not to mention, the way the space itself is decorated is pretty awesome. Gotta love advertising.
