Inside The James Agency’s New Scottsdale Office
The James Agency, a full service advertising agency that focuses on graphic design, public relations, digital marketing, media buying and web design, recently moved into a new office in Scottsdale, Arizona, designed by interior design firm Private Label International.
“TJA’s new office is light and bright with an abundance of glass and a split level open floor plan. Interior design features curated by Private Label International and custom furniture solutions planned by Goodmans Interior Structures give the office more of a hip hospitality feel, rather than that of a more corporate workplace. Industrial elements such as exposed ceilings and concrete floors and walls are complemented by modern finishes such as stylish metal light fixtures, streamlined transitional furniture, white herringbone tile, bright custom wall graphics and bold “TJA orange” accent walls, creating an edgy, contemporary vibe throughout. A custom mural by local artist Timothy Brennan is a statement piece that greets guests as they enter the lobby, which mimics a boutique hotel. Highlights of the office include a massage room for monthly employee massages, a large kitchen with two family-style dining table to accommodate the growing agency’s frequent team meals, three spacious private outdoor patios, and a large open collaboration space, dubbed “The Park,” for Monday morning production meetings, weekly icebreaker activities and other team gatherings. Three fully appointed conference rooms each take on their own unique personas. “The Milly,” the largest conference room and showpiece of the office, boasts sophisticated decor, custom lighting and plentiful plug-ins and is reserved strictly for client meetings. “The Garden” features retractable walls that open onto one of the office’s many patios, offering a serene indoor/outdoor space for more intimate meetings. With brightly colored walls and geometric patterns, “The Box” provides creative inspiration for team brainstorms.”
