Purple Ink has a new home at Carmel City Center with space for offices, creative training and a meeting room that can be rented by the public. The human resources company moved into The Ink Pad at 712 S. Range Line Rd. in late fall.
“We were outgrowing our shared space, and I really wanted to be in downtown Carmel as well as to create a fun meeting/training space,” said JoDee Curtis, Purple Ink owner and founder. “We didn’t want users of our space to feel they were intruding on Purple Ink space, so we created a separate company and branding that is a spin-off of Purple Ink. Our marketing manager, Emily Miller, immediately suggested The Ink Pad, and we loved it.”
Curtis said the Carmel City Center is a “dream space” and will lead to more creativity and will focus on the concept of a healthy workspace.
“Our team spends a majority of our time at client locations, so it’s difficult to justify a prime location like City Center, but we also had a desire to have our own creative, JoyPowered space to offer training,” Curtis said. “On the flip side, we can’t resist the convenience of Hubbard & Cravens, Divvy’s and Matt the Miller’s for a quick bite as well. After we signed the lease we found out the Cake Bake Shop is moving in also. We think our clients will enjoy these amenities as well as the free parking.”
