Two By Four Chattanooga Celebrates Grand Opening

Thursday, April 5, 2012

Two by Four, an award-winning and nationally recognized marketing and advertising firm based in Chicago, will officially open the doors of its Chattanooga office on April 19 and 20. The business is located at 1110 Market St. in Suite 318. 

The grand opening celebrations will include a grand opening party on Thursday, April 19, featuring reggae band Milele Roots at 5 p.m. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony takes place Friday, April 20, at 9 a.m. 

Two by Four is coordinating the grand opening party; The Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce is coordinating the ribbon-cutting event.

Located inside Warehouse Row, Two by Four worked with Chattanooga’s HK Architects to collaborate on the design of a creative, open, one-of-a-kind workspace. The office space has a waiting area, private meeting room, kitchen, and gaming area. The office also has a working bar, where employees can take a break and relax. 

Designed for collaboration and transparency, there are no cubicles, but rather one large desk with several seating areas. The office also has televisions and large metal panels that can roll into the conference room to display work. Additionally, several unique community spaces in newly renovated Warehouse Row offer additional meeting areas.

“The Chattanooga office space was designed around the mission statement of our business: Create great relationships. Create great work. Then eat.,” said Two by Four President and Executive Creative Director David Stevenson. “We’re here to create great relationships with each other and our clients, so we can build a foundation of understanding and respect, that will allow us to develop impactful, insightful work that manufactures action. And we know that if we can enjoy a drink or meal together, we’ll go on to accomplish great things.”

The Chattanooga office will be headed by three of the city’s longtime marketing talents—Mark Jacobus, vice president and director of Operations, Angie Jordan, vice president and creative director, and Beth Johnson, vice president and director of Client Leadership. 

Two by Four offers advertising, design, interactive, promotions and direct response services for an extensive client roster that boasts names such as Wrangler, Bridgestone Retail Operations, and the Chicago Bears. The Chattanooga office is already working with several client partners in the area, including EPB Fiber Optics, The Chattanooga Convention and Visitors Bureau, Covenant Transport, and UTC Athletics.
