29 Design Studio Thrives with New Teammates and Fresh Office Space

Rochester, New York (January 24, 2023) – 2023 is off to an inspiring start for 29 Design Studio, an award-winning creative agency founded by Maureen Ballatori in 2007. The agency, which serves clients in the food, beverage, and agriculture industries, has added two new members to the team and moved into new office spaces in Rochester and Geneva, NY.

Olivia Wendt joins the team as an Art Director, bringing her unique background and multi-faceted experience. She has worked internationally in Liberia, West Africa, as well as locally with brands such as The Strong National Museum of Play, Health Systems for a Tobacco-Free NY, and Wegmans.

“What drew me to working at 29 Design Studio is the mission and values of the brand, “ Wendt said. “The agency is focused on positive change and has a warm personality. I can see the team’s passion for the work and the clients they serve.”

Regan Wagner joins the agency as a Creative Copywriter with a background in social media management and publishing. Regan is a graduate of Nazareth College with Bachelor’s Degrees in English and Communications and a minor in Digital Marketing. 

“Joining the 29 Design Studio team has been a great opportunity for growth,” said Wagner. “I’m honored to be a part of such a clever creative team and look forward to all that’s to come!” 

The new additions follow a change of scenery for the agency, as well. 29 Design Studio has relocated its Geneva, NY, office to the Cornell Agricultural and Food Technology Park (known locally as The Tech Farm). The Rochester office has relocated to 127 Railroad Street near the Rochester Public Market.

“With our growing team located throughout Upstate New York and our expanding client base reaching beyond even that, our offices needed to grow, too,” said Ballatori. “Regan and Olivia have fit right in with our team, and the sparks of creativity are flying. I’m very excited for what the future has in store for 29 Design Studio.”
