Our History

How We Came To Be

Indie Desk was originally a concept space created in 2011 as a partnership by Andy Rosillo (IndiePrinting.com), Eric Richardson (BlogDowntown.com), and ANJAC Fashion Buildings, making Indie Desk the first Co-working space in DTLA.

We can honestly say that we have seen the changes in DTLA as good as anybody else, from seeing the diversity of our clients, to the residential growth in the area and the sprouting of new businesses that have become part of the DTLA identity. 

A spin-off of INDIE PRINTING, INDIE DESK set out to provide freelancers in any industry, a space to work from. We set out to create a vibrant community and creative hub for tech, creative and freelance entrepreneurs, with the hope that they would some day graduate from our space to one they can call their own, while providing an infusion of quality job opportunities and expendable income that will fuel our local economy.

 

The Vision

We wanted our space to be a hub where you can show up with your laptop, hop online,and get to work among other like minded members while creating a local space for yourself in the larger DTLA ecosystem. Indie Desk is the middle ground between working from home and renting a private office.

 

Our Space

Indie Desk is approximately 2,000 sq ft of ground floor space in the Wurlitzer Building. We share a block with Urban Outfitters, Two Boots Pizza, Umami, AESOP, Tanner Goods and The historic Orpheum Theatre.
