If walking through the halls of THE HEAVYWEIGHTS’ office feels dizzying, it’s not your blood sugar plummeting. The walls twist and lean, having no right angles.
That’s not the only thing that stands out about this Indianapolis-based design agency’s space. When THE HEAVYWEIGHTS moved to their current location, part of a warehouse where Stutz Motor Cars were formerly manufactured, they joined a creative hub. Artists, sculptors, designers, architects, filmmakers and musicians make their working home under the roof of the 40,000-square-foot warehouse.
And if you work for this firm, you’ll have to travel light and think fast. Every three months, the staffers switch offices — not in the musical chairs type of game, but to group team members strategically and to give designers a window into the working life of a developer, and vice versa.
Luginbill notes that on each of these moving days, the pile-up that can clutter offices usually fills an entire dumpster. De-cluttering is not only good for aesthetics, but also for the mind. “When you change the place where you live (or work in this case), you change your perspective — your mind is free to do other things,” Luginbill says.
“In this age, online communication is one of the most effective tools for connecting ideas and people in different parts of the state and around the globe, The Heavyweights understand our mission, and they act as an extension of our team when designing social media platforms that will ultimately broaden our audience and increase our reach.”
