Redefining Red Bank

Before VUE Media made its home in Red Bank, New Jersey their office resided in Hoboken, New Jersey. Wanting to maintain a trendy, creative, and comfortable space for their employees and themselves, VUE co-founders, Jason Underberg and Brian Kovener were on the hunt for a design company that would be able to find a chic balance between their past and future as a company.

While searching for designers, Jason Underberg and Brian Kovener came across designer Amy Manor of Red Bank Design Center, and their visions immediately aligned. The team at Red Bank Design Center is dedicated to making the client’s vision a reality in full home designs, office spaces, and more.
Upon meeting the team at the VUE, Manor was already impressed with Underberg and Kovener’s enthusiasm and fresh approach to the magazine world. VUE’s incorporation of video and podcast into media drew Manor in and served as an inspiration while designing the space.
At the time, Kovener and Underberg were looking to find a place where the office could serve as a local hub that could be actively involved in the community. Making the move to Red Bank during Covid times was a challenge, especially since VUE was ready to design their office, but did not yet have a physical space. Manor, Underberg, and Kovener looked at three different spaces before finally choosing The Galleria. The building served as a perfect creative space with its exposed brick ambience, and its location right in the center of the city. Manor assured the VUE team that this was the right move and that VUE’s voice in this community would be sacred.

The move to Red Bank served as a pivotal time for VUE Magazine as well. Recognizing that people were spending more time at home, VUE released a design issue, dipping its toes into the design world and opening doors for advertisers in the community. Going down a new avenue, Red Bank Design Center and VUE Media collided as entrepreneurs, kicking off their relationship.
and contemporary class, with stunning Hudson Valley lighting, plush couches, and vibrant colors in their podcast room to compose the ideal environment to motivate the creators at work. Art installations done directly on the wall wrap up the space and form a refined and unique office, perfect for the type of work VUE Media does.

The General Designers (GD) at Red Bank Design Center reflected Underberg and Kovener’s preferences and lifestyle in designing VUE’s office environment. The VUE office is a space for writers, editors, photographers, and all areas of media expertise to work as a team and also to reach their individual goals. Red Bank Design Center’s team curated and designed a collaborative, functional office setting that caters to all forms of media. Unlike most offices, the VUE Media office embodies comfort and contemporary class, with stunning Hudson Valley lighting, plush couches, and vibrant colors in their podcast room to compose the ideal environment to motivate the creators at work. Art installations done directly on the wall wrap up the space and form a refined and unique office, perfect for the type of work VUE Media does.

Not only did VUE Media relocate to a space contemplative to a creative class but they also found a home in the community of Red Bank. Stemming new relationships in both the business and personal realms, VUE Media has found their place among the growing support system that dwells in this neighborhood and has helped foster its growth into the vibrant place it is today.
