Vertis Atlanta Creative Studios Relocate To New Facilities

Press release from the issuing company

August 18, 2003 -- Atlanta, GA – Vertis, a leading provider of technology-based marketing and advertising solutions, today announced the recent relocation of its Atlanta-based image creation studio, Imagination Brewery, and creative services group, ZOOM180, to a new 12,000 sq. ft. loft located in the Westside Arts District of the city. The new facilities are situated within the 1920s Puritan Mill building, one of the last remaining historic Atlanta industrial properties, and features 40 ft. ceilings and exposed brick and wood beams. Square Feet Studio, Inc. has designed a creative space that features a high-tech but earthy feel. From the old saw-tooth monitor and wood ceiling to the curved glass wall in the lobby, the studio is unique in form and function. The digital illustration and retouching suites in the mezzanine level have wood beams cutting through the wall to the catwalk with a cable and rail system. The earth tone colors complete the look of mixing the old with the new. "Over the past two years, we experienced tremendous growth in our photography and creative services businesses, with our client list continuing to expand on a national level,” says Mike Bailey, studio director for Imagination Brewery. "The new studio greatly impacts our ability to respond to clients because we now offer four photo bays, along with a professional kitchen and a 40 feet cycwall with a 5 feet radius. We have more than 6500 square feet of shooting space available with an additional mezzanine level in the photo studio.” “The new studio allows greater collaboration with the creative talent,” comments Meredith Ott, vice president of creative services for Vertis. “Since ZOOM180’s Atlanta studio is focusing on creative support for point-of-sale, point-of-purchase and consumer packaged goods manufacturers, the location is ideal.” For more information about the new Imagination Brewery and ZOOM180 facilities or to request images, please contact Donovan Roche or Carla Marshall at (619) 234-0345.
