116 & West acquires Klündt Hosmer in Spokane, Washington

116 & West

We’ve been keeping a secret since July. We can’t do it anymore.


For the past few months, our Boise and Eugene teams have collaborated with some new friends in Spokane, and we are ready for our big debut!

From Boise to Spokane: The road to collaboration with Klündt Hosmer

Thanks to an introduction two years ago by Mark Tidd and Kurt Gustavel at Venture Title & Escrow and a few hundred additional conversations, we acquired Spokane design firm Klündt Hosmer. Founded in 1987 by two talented designers, Darin Klündt and Jean Klündt, and with the addition of their partners Rick Hosmer and Diane Mahan, Klündt Hosmer is a design and digital marketing studio with an amazing reputation. Over their 35-year history in the Inland Northwest, Klündt Hosmer has worked with hundreds of brands, including Avista, Gonzaga University, Innovia Foundation, and Visit Spokane. We’re excited to carry on the legacy Darin, Jean, and Rick began and expand our reach throughout the PNW as we continue to serve clients with creativity and collaboration.

Our approach as a fully-integrated PNW advertising agency

At 116 & West, we firmly believe there is a need for a fully integrated, full-service agency experience for mid-market companies throughout the PNW. Our holistic marketing approach is to help our client’s brands and branding budgets play big for their size. We provide the big agency experience without the big agency pretense (or cost). Of course, we know we’re bucking the trend of hyper-specialized or vertical agencies, but our clients’ success tells us we’re on the right path.

This is not a unique point of view, especially when it comes to our colleagues in Boise. From Drake Cooper to Stoltz Marketing Group, dozens of agencies with roots in the City of Trees deliver full-service marketing for clients across the United States. It is one of the many unique aspects of the sophisticated business community in the Treasure Valley, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.

With decades of experience across the region, our team is positioned to support brands with strategic and creative insights that deliver results. From Spokane to Boise, we are ready. Your adventure awaits. Let’s go.
