Two advertising and marketing agencies in Indianapolis have announced a merger. The combination of Redwall and Miles Design is called MilesHerndon and includes nearly 24 employees with plans to add 10 during the next three years. May 28, 2015
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis-based agencies Redwall and Miles Design will be joining forces to form the newly dubbed MilesHerndon. The new company is expected to expand market reach, as well as improve the services that each individual firm offers to clients.
Miles Design entered the market in 2002 under owner Josh Miles with a focus on branding, strategy and design specifically for professional services firms.
Redwall – a branding and advertising firm launched by Daniel Herndon – has been in the Indianapolis market since 2008 and has evolved into a leading design firm with its focus on strategic branding for clients such as the Penn Street Tower and NO MORE campaign.
Together as MilesHerndon, the new company will bring in the award-winning talents of each firm, specializing in brand strategy and development, digital marketing, print design, web development, and advertising.
The company will immediately operate from offices at 55 Monument Circle, Suite 1300, with plans for an expansion in the near future. Currently, the company employs 21 full-time staff members and intends to add 10 high-tech, high-wage jobs over the next three years.
MilesHerndon will be jointly led by Principals Josh Miles and Daniel Herndon.
“We've been working together on this for months, so I'm very pleased to announce our new company to the Indianapolis community and our client base from around the country,” said Miles. “Individually, both of our companies were doing very well, but together we will be able to offer clients a branding experience unlike any other.”
Herndon stressed the importance of the new team bonding and the impact that it will have on their work together.
“This venture is new territory for all of us from Redwall and Miles Design, the immediate success of which depends on creating a new company culture,” said Herndon. “Leading up to this transition, both groups met and socialized outside of work on multiple occasions and have really started forging personal and professional relationships together, making this a cohesive and strategically focused team from day one. We're excited to get to work under one roof.”
MilesHerndon will serve a wide array of clients from various business sectors and across state borders. Combined, the company has clients in more than 31 states, including California, New York, Texas, and Washington D.C.
“We feel that Indianapolis is the ideal place to headquarter our agency,” continued Herndon. “We are a national firm, but we feel that Indiana's solid economic climate and the outstanding pool of young and hardworking talent here make the decision to stay in Indianapolis to serve our client base a no-brainer.”
Key clients for MilesHerndon include strategic engagements with Hendricks Regional Health, IUPUI School of Science, The National Associations of County and City Health Officials, TWG Development and Milhaus.
MilesHerndon will continue to honor all client contracts and offer broader services for small and large-scale branding and advertising projects. To learn more about MilesHerndon, visit milesherndon.com.
