Favor announced its new downtown headquarters today.
The 12,000-square-foot office space, located at 1705 Guadalupe Street, will be home to the company’s 120 Austin employees and has plenty of room for future expansion. The office was designed by Favor’s own creative team.
“It was incredibly important for us to have our employees heavily involved in the planning and design of our new space,” CEO and President Jag Bath said in a statement. “The end result is an office that has our culture and values stitched into the fabric of the space.”
Favor’s creative team wanted employees to feel like they were working inside the Favor brand. The result was collaborative and private spaces with meeting rooms named after famous personal assistants such as Jeeves, Jenkins, Moneypenny, R2D2 and Siri.
The office’s 70’s inspired design aesthetic includes a custom mural depicting the history and future of Favor, designed and hand-painted by members of the Favor Creative Team.
Favor employees helped to hand select and design every piece of furniture and fixture in the office, while music fills the common areas with an employee controlled Spotify playlist. Employee feedback was further incorporated into the office design, with an abundance of whiteboard walls and breakout areas throughout the office to encourage open collaboration.
The new office pays tribute to Favor’s Runners with mural painted by local graffiti artist Michael Johnston, A.K.A. Truth.
“The inspiration behind the mural is this little happy world — Austin — where Favor also lives and brings goodness to your doorstep,” Johnston said in a statement. “I hope it brings a ray of sunshine to the folks who work there.”
