SSDM Moves into New Office Space
Troy, Mich -- SSDM (formerly SS Digital Media) has relocated to a larger suite at 850 Stephenson
Highway to accommodate its growing staff and the need for more conference space.
“In our previous location, we were always on the hunt for rooms with doors so we could brainstorm ideas and discuss strategy,” says Michael J. Taylor II, company partner and creative director. “We literally looked all over town for the better part of a year, to no avail. Then, just as we were bursting at the seams, a perfect suite became available in the next building. Obviously, it was meant to be.”
True to the company’s flat operating structure, the entire team packed and moved over a recent weekend, settled in on Monday and got down to work. The new suite triples the available square footage, has six conference rooms and an open bullpen where the team can collaborate and share ideas and information. A bonus is the top-floor view of surrounding Troy and on a sunny day, the Renaissance Center.
SSDM is now located at 850 Stephenson Highway, Suite 700, Troy Michigan 48083. A ribbon-cutting and open house is tentatively planned for Thursday, April 11, from 4:00 - 6:00 pm.
