Harden Has a New Home at Jack London Square

Harden Has a New Home at Jack London Square_harden partners blogThis summer we moved into a wonderful new space near the heart of Jack London Square in Oakland, California. Ideally located just a Bart or Ferry ride from San Francisco, this colorful, fast-growing neighborhood is named after legendary author and adventurer Jack London. We are just two blocks from the waterfront, with freeway access to anywhere in the Bay Area. Within walking distance are eclectic dining options, brew pubs, urban wineries, and famed jazz club Yoshi’s.

Our new building is a recently renovated 1920s glass factory with a collaborative atrium work space that exudes natural light. We would welcome the opportunity to have you in for a meeting and to show you around our new neighborhood. Please get in touch!

The recent RSA Data Privacy Report, which surveyed 7,500 consumers in the U.S. and Europe, showed that 59 percent of the respondents were concerned about their medical data being compromised, while 39 percent were worried that a hacker would tamper with their medical information.

The Evolving Media Landscape

There is no denying that the media landscape is rapidly changing. Harden recently conducted a study on today’s media landscape, diving deeper into how media consumption habits are changing.

Here are a few surprising findings:

  • Legacy news sources are rising in popularity – and successfully charging readers for content.
  • We are experiencing a resurgence of investigative journalism and partnerships with media brands and nonprofits are helping to drive down Audio content is on the rise. Podcasts specifically have seen a major spike in listeners, especially on mobile.

The Award Goes to… Fresh Research

Done right, original research can be the gift that keeps on giving. This is exemplified by a recent TD Ameritrade survey whose results we packaged and repurposed into fresh, relevant and newsworthy themes over the course of a year. The campaign generated more than 615 million digital impressions and significant media coverage, and earned Stanton GOLD in this year’s Bulldog PR Awards for “Best Use of Research.”
