Chicago Design Network and Agency Brand Studio today announced a joint venture that will offer a one-stop shop for design and branding services. The unification will build on more than three decades of inspiring business architecture and recent collaborations between the two firms as the partnership focuses on delivering thoughtful architecture and compelling brands.
The joint venture will benefit from Chicago Design Network’s architectural expertise and skilled portfolio of designers along with Agency’s diversified branding experience and international relations. The combined entities will operate as Chicago Design Network and Agency Brand Studio.
“We see the link between brand strategy and architecture as a critical component in providing business-focused design,” Chicago Design Network principal, David McCarty, said. “Uniting under a joint venture will provide a full range of architecture and brand development services to our combined clientele.”
“Our companies will mutually benefit from a complimentary portfolio and greater industry engagement,” Agency founder and principal, Tony Pagliuca, said. “Combining two industry leaders under one roof to create a simplified process for our clients just makes sense.”
Built on 25 years of experience, Agency was founded in 2016 by Pagliuca and works with leading brands across the globe, including North America, Europe, Asia and South America. Chicago Design Network is an architecture and interior design firm located in the West Loop of Chicago, founded in 1985.
