Inside this historic university building, ACD took a clean, modern approach to creating a new studio space for its growing staff. Tailored chairs and a white wool sofa provide a cozy and casual space to gather and work, and overhead the large black lights are lined with gold leaf— creating a space that is equal parts industrial loft and high-end boutique. A large abstract painting, commissioned from local artist Pamela Anderson, leans against the wall in the office. In the studio, a collection of bright fishing lures are displayed in rows of shadow boxes, making a striking visual statement.
