At the heart of Philadelphia, a block from City Hall and a brisk 7-minute walk from Suburban Station, Key Medium relocates after a great 1.5 years in the Spring Arts District of Philadelphia. The move to Midtown Village enables us to be more accessible to top talent, clients and enables to continue daring to take on big problems with some of the smartest minds around–equipped with the most ideal creative environment to do so in.
Key Medium’s new location is powered by the Dutch-designed, minimalistic SPACES office building that’s in the recently renovated Hale Building, which still keeps some of its 19th-century charm–with the old doors and electrical circuitry upcycled as art. Complete with a Foosball on the 8th floor, a ping-pong table. a rooftop terrace with seating (and WiFi of course), bicycles which you can rent (free), a coffee and smoothie shop with a cafeteria area, tons of lounge space throughout, smart TVs, and a kitchenette with a robotic barista that can make you an espresso, latte, or just a regular coffee.
“It’s an A+ grade work experience here at Key Medium,” said Destiny Simmons, who is a Digital Designer for almost two years now. Destiny goes on to say that “…this new space is really dope and it brings out my creative chakra.”
Inside the private Key Medium office, you’ll find a few trees, dozens of shiny awards, standing desks, and a shared round table. Work is undertaken between a select few–building captivating, impactful brand platforms that move the needle on some of these big problems such as food insecurity, poverty, sustainability, and supporting workforce development efforts–while continuing to grow in capabilities and capacity each day.
Ali Jaffar, the CEO, says that “It is a space designed for creativity, collaboration, experimentation, innovation, and continual improvement. We moved here to make ourselves even more accessible to enable growth in capacity and talent. We’ll soon be onboarding a Director of Project Delivery, along with a User Research & Analysis Consultant to help us with some of these big undertakings.”
