WICHITA — Freshly baked bread.
Margaritas by the pool.
With perks like that, who needs a regular office?
Turns out Baseline Creative does.
"We've finally grown to a point that the home office was no longer large enough," owner Nathan Williams says of his full-service design firm.
So he has moved it to the Dockum Building at Douglas and Hillside.
Williams started the business about a decade ago. He used to work for another company but then began designing fonts for movies and apparel companies on the side. He says that's what allowed him to then start his own business, which he's always run out of his east-side home.
"It was fine for about five or six people," Williams says.
Eight tipped the scales for a traditional office, but Williams says now there are 10 employees, so a move is probably overdue.
"We grew all of a sudden," he says of the past few years.
The firm designs apps and does interactive design and Internet and print work.
Williams says he likes the Dockum Building for its visibility, parking and overall aesthetic.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
