PORTLAND, OR and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - LANE PR, an independently owned, national public relations agency, recently opened the doors to its new office in downtown Portland. The innovative, open floor plan was created within LANE PR's former space, and promotes creativity and collaboration among employees.

"Our new space promotes employee cooperation and interaction by removing the physical barriers between teams," said Wendy Lane Stevens, president of LANE PR. "Our best and brightest campaigns involve teamwork and innovative thinking, and our new space enhances those creative encounters."

LANE PR partnered with Hills Design Group to create a workspace that mirrors its company culture, core values, and business practices. The space features warm white walls, high ceilings, pops of color, and a new creative room for brainstorms and employee education. Low workspace wall heights allow for easy conversation and information sharing and a new café provides employees a space for socializing. While the individual work spaces are private, they allow and encourage conversation and creative thinking.

"Workspace layout is vital to the success of businesses, but especially creative agencies like LANE PR," said Pat Hills, lead designer of Hills Design Group. "Open workspaces help people connect -- with others, with information, and with the culture of their organization. A workplace should help ignite the potential of the people, and that's what we've hopefully accomplished in the renovated LANE PR work space."

LANE PR's New York office also moved this summer, but maintained its prestigious 500 Fifth Avenue address. The new office, situated in the same building in the heart of Manhattan, is mere steps away from Bryant Park and the New York Public Library. At the epicenter of national media, large-scale industry trade events, and Wall Street, LANE PR's New York office maintains a prime address for executing campaigns and building media relationships.

This summer also marked LANE PR's 22nd anniversary. The agency has created growth and opportunities by providing results that build revenue for clients. With a strong commitment to integrating new technologies into its service offerings and strategic communications, LANE PR's growth and ongoing success can be attributed to its carefully crafted integrated marketing campaigns. Today, LANE PR's main expertise areas include media relations, investor relations, crisis communications, and social/digital media.
