Bergmeyer, the award-winning design collaborative based in Boston and Los Angeles, announces the expansion of its powerhouse design offering with the opening of its latest office in the creative hub of the Midwest: Columbus, Ohio. The expansion is the company’s latest significant investment in its continued evolution for the pathbreaking collaborative, following a transformative rebrand in 2020 along with a series of strategic hires over the past two years.
“Bergmeyer is excited to put down roots in Columbus, Ohio, a strategic move that will allow us to continue expanding client services through broadening our geographic presence to meet top design talent where they are and to support our regionally located clients,” said Bergmeyer President Rachel Zsembery.
Bergmeyer’s Columbus office will be led by a familiar face to the bustling local design community, tapping storied industry veteran and recently named Principal at Bergmeyer, Christian Davies, to lead the collaborative and help grow its next generation of design innovators into the next chapter of Bergmeyer’s legacy brand.
“The depth of regional clients, world-class agency talent, and a vibrantly thriving design community made Columbus the perfect choice for the next phase of Bergmeyer’s evolution,” said Bergmeyer Principal Christian Davies. “Having built multiple teams, offices, and offerings in this market, I’m beyond thrilled to unveil the latest chapter in a city that feels – literally – electrifying.”
After successfully expanding its suite of services and rebranding from a traditional architecture and interior design firm to a multi-disciplinary design collaborative, Bergmeyer continued to invest in the growth and development of its newly added capabilities, methodically recruiting top creative talent in the branding and graphic design fields across the US and most specifically in and around the Columbus area. A creative hub for the retail design communities with an exploding startup scene, Columbus is undeniably one of the nation’s fastest growing cities for innovation, further reinforcing Bergmeyer’s strategic move to attract leading local talent.
Established in 1975, Bergmeyer is dedicated to creating innovative and future-thinking experiences. The company attributes much of its continued successes to its culture and shared purpose of expanding the boundaries of design thinking every day.
Bergmeyer’s new office is centrally located in Columbus’ Short North neighborhood at 875 N High Street, Columbus OH 43215. To learn more about Bergmeyer and its award-winning design work, please visit www.bergmeyer.com.
