As our world increasingly becomes more technology-based, it is now, more than ever, important to adapt to the innovative and tech-savvy world. KATANA is a next-generation digital media agency for ambitious marketers worldwide whose services are built on a foundation of driving performance across all digital channels for their clients. Their office space, located in the heart of bustling downtown, is the perfect spot for the KATANA team to deliver cutting-edge results for each and every client!
KATANA’s core values are to Be the Future, Be Infectious and Be Impeccable—and their office represents just that! Located on the 4th floor of a Class A high-rise, you are immediately greeted by their open and bright reception area, complete with a sleek white reception desk, modern furniture and a bright yellow accent wall to complement KATANA’s contemporary signage. The polished concrete floor throughout the space also provides a modern feel to the entire office.
KATANA’s conference room is the perfect spot for team members to gather and discuss projects. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer beautiful views of the bustling city streets below and flood the room with plenty of natural light. By installing glass office fronts, KATANA is able to share more natural light with the interior of their space, which fosters happier moods and adds a vibrant glow to their office! Both the conference room and open floor plan areas feature open ceilings, exposing the structure of the building to add additional volume and industrial flair.
Open workstations line the perimeter of the space to support a culture of collaboration and open discussion amongst team members. The wall also features city skyline yellow and gray watercolor wall art, adding playful life to their office to inspire team members.
Private offices also feature floor-to-ceiling windows, which show off breathtaking views that also allow bursts of light to filter through to highlight the fun accent walls even more!
Inspiring posters, complete with some of KATANA’s mottos, are framed on walls to help invigorate the team. Last but not least, their breakroom features the same cheerful yellow first encountered at the front reception area!
Congratulations to KATANA for creating such a fun, bright and modern space for the team to thrive!
