Basso Design Group doubles work space in Troy

Basso Design Group is moving on up in the world, or at least in Troy.

The 11-year-old digital marketing agency is moving into a new office this week. The 3,000-square-foot space is twice the size of its previous office, which will help accommodate the firm’s growing staff.

Basso Design Group has hired three people over the last year: a website developer, sales professional and a creative director. It now employs a staff of 15 people. The agency is looking for summer interns. It is also looking to hire two people now for website development and website design.

“We have landed some pretty significant clients over the last year,” says Dan Santonocito, managing partner with Basso Design Group. “Everyone from Michigan State University to Wayne State University to Michigan First Credit Union to Hansons.”

The Troy-based firm handles a wide variety of digital marketing services, including website building, social media, search engine optimization and mobile app development. It is looking to get into developing mobile apps and responsive web design this year as it looks to continue growing its revenue at a double-digit clip.

“We steadily grow between 20-30 percent a year,” Santonocito says. “Every year has been our best year so far.”
