Advertising/PR Notes: Ardent Creative growing up and moving out

Brad Ball and David B Canington

Ardent Creative has outgrown its space at 440 S. Main St. and has moved to a new Fort Worth location at 707 W. Vickery Blvd.

Why? Forty-percent growth in one fiscal year makes for an exciting business and crowded quarters. The rapid growth required expansion as Ardent hired new employees to meet the needs of its clients in design, development and digital marketing, so David Canington and Brad Ball packed up their now 25 employees and ensconced themselves in larger quarters.

The firm leased 5,478 square feet in the building. Representing the landlord in the transaction was Seth Koschak and Tyler Maner of Stream Realty Partners LP-Fort Worth.

And who says you can’t go home again?

“We remember our humble beginnings in a small office on 101 S. Jennings and are thankful for the loyalty of our clients who have grown along with us and made us who we are today,” said Ball.

Ball and Canington incorporated Ardent Creative in 2005 after working together as freelancers.

“As entrepreneurs first, we understand the challenges companies face, whether they’re startups or Fortune 500 companies. That understanding helps us push companies forward by chasing results instead of just producing pretty pictures and snappy slogans,” said Canington.

The firm counts as its clients Fort Worth stalwarts such as Sundance Square, Texas Christian University, Frank Kent and the Gladney Center for Adoption.

The new space, once occupied by PAVLOV and Concussion, provides elbow room for the influx of new staff and more meeting rooms. Large, open areas offer the option to work in a standing desk pod, at a more traditional seated work station, or on the large, U-shaped couch in the center of the room. Exposed brick, ductwork and steel beams cap the space where creatives flourish.
