Last Friday, commonvision ventured into the city for a tour and Q&A with r2integrated (r2i). r2i is an ad agency located in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, right across from the National Aquarium. They have other offices in NYC, Silicon Valley, and Seattle as well. We took our students there to learn more about agency life and meet other designers in the field.
Tim Frost, a Creative Director at r2i, led us on a tour of r2i's offices, located on the top floor of their East Pratt Street building. r2i boasts a large open floor plan, allowing for collaboration and creativity within their work space.
After our tour, a group of designers from r2i came in to answer our students' questions about working in an ad agency, the r2i working environment, and more. Our designers had a strong interest in learning more about the process of getting their first design job out of college, and what set apart agency life from other types of graphic design environments.
Once the Q&A was complete, we went out on r2i's balcony to see what was easily one of the most impressive views available of the Inner Harbor.
A huge thanks to r2i for the awesome tour!
