Field Trip: Tim @ Marlin Network

A company’s space can often signal what’s happening inside. Of course you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but when you’re walking into a building that has beautiful stonework, it’s pretty good sign that what’s on the outside might be found on the inside too. That was completely true here.

Tim Bade is the Chief Creative Director of Marlin Network. I recently dropped by to see him at their HQ in Springfield.

Tim is a seasoned pro and I’ve worked with him off and on for many years. He’s been on both the agency and the client side and his knowledge seems endless to me.

What I admire most about him is his devotion to artistry that he is able to draw out of photographers, illustrators and designers. He takes those artistic works and deploys them masterfully for his clients.
