Brand-experience agency hosted AIGA Studio Open House in someone else’s house.

Cary, N.C. – March 22, 2011 – For one night only, R+M moved its agency to Artspace in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.

R+M, a Cary brand-experience agency, wanted to make it easy for attendees of the design and advertising event to come and get a taste of R+M. So they packed up their work, their culture and their snacks and brought it all to Artspace for the AIGA Studio Open House, held on March 10.

“We love our office, but our people make the R+M brand. And since our office was off the beaten path of the tour, we decided to get on the path.” Stated Greg Norton, executive vice president of R+M. He continued, “There was a steady flow of designers, students and photographers, many of which thanked us for coming downtown. To us that’s a huge success. And a special thanks to Artspace for letting us set-up shop.”

Shawn Gillen, vice president, creative director shares, “We had a large projection setup, thanks to our friends at AV Metro, that we used to highlight our work, environment and culture that set the mood for great conversations, and made us feel right at home. We talked with a lot of talented people, and we look forward to being a part of the area’s continued growth.”
