Designer Agency Squid
Tucked behind Target Field between a storage facility and a bar lies a hidden gem: Agency Squid. The three-year-old ad agency, which counts TCF Bank, Sun Country, and Cargill among its clients, took over what was once known as Soundbar nightclub. The new 1,500-square-foot office is actually a hybrid work/living space created by father-son founders Brent and Miles Marmo. While retaining touches from Soundbar, Squid created a minimalist space surrounded by artwork. The VIP/DJ booth is now two bedrooms with bathrooms; the former bar area was converted into a kitchen. With a stunning urban landscape view from the loft’s patio on one side and an open workspace on the other, Brent, who lives on-site, created the perfect space to balance work and life, and sometimes, separate the two. “I do still use snow days as an excuse to stay home,” jokes Miles.
