Red Frog Events
Illinois State University alumni-owned business Red Frog Events ranked Number 9 on Crain’s 2012 list of the 20 Best Places to Work. I’ve worked on several stories about Red Frog over the last few years and had the opportunity to visit the last 3 iterations of their office space, with this current space being one of the coolest office environments I’ve ever experienced. The video captures just about everything: tree houses, zip lines, a conference room hidden behind a book shelf. There’s even a small rock climbing wall in one corner of the office. Check this place out!
Here’s the cover shot I put together when we last visited for a feature in the College of Business magazine, which recently won a Regional ADDY Award. The shot features owner Joe Reynolds along with a few of his fellow Illinois State alumni employees.
Cover from the first feature I designed about Red Frog; 2 offices prior when they were still located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park. At this time they had about 800 square feet and less than 10 employees, only 2 years prior to opening the office shown above. Downtown Chicago skyline in the background.
