Delayed for a year by the pandemic, Red Window Communications celebrated the official opening of its home with an inauguration event on July 29.
The Oxford-based integrated marketing communications agency hosted nearly 100 colleagues, clients and friends at an open house co-hosted by the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce.
The agency is located in Insight Park, a modern office building for private tenants who collaborate with students, professors or researchers at the University of Mississippi. The Red Window suite includes private offices, open collaborative workspaces, a brainstorming circle, and a meeting space equipped for Zoom.
âThis space has proven to be a breeding ground for our team’s creativity, as well as a comfortable environment to welcome our local clients,â said Lucy Schultze, Founder and Director of Red Window. “It was a real joy for our team to welcome so many people who supported us throughout this trip.”
Founded in 2018, Red Window Communications works with clients across the South East including small and medium businesses, nonprofits, and government entities. The open house marked the first anniversary of the agency’s move to Insight Park.
Wayne Andrews, executive director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council and outgoing chamber chair, said the event celebrated Red Window as a business and the relationships it has grown from.
âThe Red Window team was able to take this step because they knew our community was invested in its success,â said Andrews. âRed Window is not just a new business. As a team, they are our neighbors, friends, volunteers at community events and people who love Oxford.
Attendees at the event included members of the local media and the local business community, as well as state representative Clay Deweese and representatives from several departments at the University of Mississippi. Quentin Brewer, current chamber president, presented the team with a certificate commemorating the cutting of the ribbon.
Amy Speck, who came from Tupelo to represent the Community Development Foundation at the event, said the event was a chance to learn more about how Red Window works with clients. Website design and social media support are among the frequent needs she hears from CDF members.
âIt was wonderful to learn the value Red Window brings to the business community in our region,â said Speck, Director of Membership for CDF. âWhether it’s helping an entrepreneur start a new business or helping established businesses stay relevant with their message, it’s good to know that our businesses have first-class service for them. help them grow and be successful. ”
While Red Window’s services for clients are primarily digital, team members opted for a party-friendly, low-tech display to showcase different areas of work at the open house.
The team decorated the workspace’s five private desks to ask questions about five common tactics: websites, search engine optimization (SEO), content, social media, and strategy. Banner pennants announced each theme, and guests were invited to write their own questions on the interior windows.
âWe write notes on the windows ourselves, so we thought it would be fun to hand out the markers to our guests and see what they had to say,â said Rebekah Flake, Creative Consultant. âWe also wanted to visually show how all of these tactics are connected. People sometimes look for stand-alone solutions, but their efforts work best when they’re all part of a single strategy.
By working with clients, Red Window builds personalized communication programs around a client’s specific needs, goals, budget and capabilities. Across all customer areas, the team’s goal is to understand the customer’s audience, craft the right messages, and tell the customer’s story to the people they seek to reach.
