A Year In Review

Let's take a look back on an awesome year!

2018 marked a very productive year for Parallel Design Group, as our team was blessed with the opportunity to impact the built environment for over 165 spaces in 12 months. A few notable clients that entrusted us were SEI, Carbonite, High Point Global, My Computer Career, JLL, IHCDA, Morales, HomeAdvisor, Wagner Reese and CICOA. As a team, we have enjoyed working on all projects big and small, as they have allowed us to grow in our respective skill sets, and form important and valuable relationships and partnerships. A special thank you to each of our clients who allowed us to hear your vision and help bring it to life.

2018 was a year of firsts as it relates to the various locations where we were able to serve. As many of you know, our hometown of Indianapolis is a strong market in which we are fortunate to flourish in. Our global clients have capitalized on the value of bringing us alongside them in 14 new locations including Mississauga Canada, Boston, Nashville, and Salt Lake City to name a few.

Speaking of expanding, our still small but mighty team has grown, too! (Click here to read story of how Parallel started). This year, we added two key players to our line-up, to help push our team to the next level. The gal behind all of our marketing efforts, Adrienne Evans, was hired to lead our strategic marketing efforts as the Marketing and Communications Director; diving head first into social media efforts. The release of the Parallel Design Blog has been a primary effort on her part and we are excited to see her lead us in this area in 2019! Additionally, we hired our VP of Technical Development, Mike Dunkin. As the only male on our team (outside of our office dog Baxter), we give him big kudos, for obvious reasons. As we always yearn to be our best selves – utilizing our time and energy efficiently, we are very excited to have Mike on board as he leads us with his technology expertise in helping us to best learn and utilize the latest and greatest software.

We have been blessed with the opportunity to earn a few honorable mentions!

A few honorable mentions to report from 2018, include: Modern Masters Fashion Show, Monumental Awards and Contract Magazine.

This Spring we won “Best in Show” during IIDA’s Modern Masters Fashion Show, as we worked directly with MDC to make a dress made entirely out of wallcovering. Our team made over 500 cut vinyl flowers and hand placed each onto the dress (certainly no small task)! Our dress was inspired by one of our favorite artists, Margaret Keane. Many thanks to MDC/Brenda Capuano for their generous sponsorship.

Our highest honor to date was this fall, as we were awarded the “Interior Design Honor Award” for JLL’s Space. Click here to read more about JLL’s trendy new space.

Finally – last but certainly not least, we were thrilled to be featured in Contract magazine online to showcase the new JLL office.
