The Barn was ipsoCreative’s first home and it had a heavy influence on setting the aesthetic vibe of ipsoCreative’s space. ipso’s new home is perched on the edge of the valley in downtown Akron and we have carried over elements of The Barn. Distressed wood. Concrete floors. Eclectic furniture. For us, barns in general represent more humble beginnings, hard work, preparation for coming seasons, and the joy of gathering. If these are our roots, then every time we remember The Barn we are reminded of these long standing virtues. And that’s a good thing.
Philosophy of Use
There are elements of irony permeating ipsoCreative. This is especially evident in the fact that while all of our collaboration, both internally and externally, can be accomplished remotely, our office space is vital to our work. Our studio serves as a central hub for collaboration among the ipso team. Together, in person, we are more productive, more creative, more attentive across a variety of tasks. You might not expect it, but our office is as vital to our work in the digital realm as the technology we use to create designs and code.
