“Having a bi-coastal presence will make our work even stronger, and we can’t wait to get started" – Peter Kang, Barrel co-founder
NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 13, 2018
Barrel, an independent creative and digital marketing agency based in New York, announced today it will open its first-ever West Coast location in July to better serve an expanding client base. With a focus on scaling direct-to-consumer brands through a combination of Shopify Plus-enabled e-commerce websites and growth marketing services, Barrel sees Los Angeles, with its ecosystem of DTC brands, as a natural fit. The Downtown Los Angeles office will be the agency’s first outside of New York City and reflects its position as a rapidly growing player in the industry.
“With our growing roster of clients on the West Coast, we saw an opportunity to establish a presence in Los Angeles and cultivate a local team that can help drive the efforts at headquarters,” said Barrel co-founder and Director of Strategy Peter Kang.
In its work with clients like Well+Good, Sakara Life, SmartyPants Vitamins, and Wanderlust, Barrel has distinguished itself as a major force in experience design and intelligent digital marketing, creating one-of-a-kind e-commerce and content experiences supported by campaigns that drive conversions and growth.
Initial hires at Barrel’s LA location will include Producer Dennis Ta and Developer Oliver Huang. “We've been very impressed with the talent in LA and are excited to welcome two new team members who'll help kick things off,” Kang said. “Having a bi-coastal presence will make our work even stronger, and we can’t wait to get started.”

Launched in 2006, Barrel creates impactful experiences and marketing campaigns for growing brands such as KIND Snacks, Peloton, Hurom, Brooklyn Boulders, and Austin Eastciders.
