Meet One Lucky Guitar, a design & marketing boutique located in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. We work hard, play for the win and fight to continually make a difference for our clients and our community.
 
Founded in 2000, One Lucky Guitar has spent more than a decade simultaneously upending and embracing tradition. We admire the legacy before us, and respect our peers, but we’re not afraid to take a swing and see if there’s not a different, more interesting and effective way to get from A to Z (and maybe see if X or Y wouldn’t be a more impactful solution, anyway).
Stop by the offices of OLG, and you might find us storyboarding TV commercials and web stories, or designing, developing and launching a clothing company’s website. Pop in another day and we may be working on regional economic development initiatives, or figuring out the logistics of how a band from Sydney might play a cathartic rock & roll show at our favorite local venue—or in our office, at The B-side. (There’s not that much of a difference between the two, by the way.) We do it all with our hearts on our sleeves, and a “just because it hasn’t been done doesn’t mean that it can’t be done” spirit.
Here’s the promise: at One Lucky Guitar, we’re always going to deliver our best, with a commitment to service, integrity and creative excellence.
 

The Team

Welcome to the heart of this company. At OLG, “creativity” and “service” show up on each and every one of our job descriptions. We’re committed to development, growth and the belief that we’re doing some of the best, most important work of our lives—right here, every day.

Located south of the confluence in the city’s “Bricktown” district, One Lucky Guitar is proud to call downtown Fort Wayne home. Here, you’ll find us rubbing shoulders with terrific neighbors at the corner of Lafayette Street and Douglas Avenue in the 46802 zip. We’re proud of this space—we designed, decorated and, in some cases, built it out ourselves. Shoot us an email, and then ride on over sometime for a tour, deal?

Headquarters

Located south of the confluence in the city’s self-described “Bricktown” district, One Lucky Guitar is proud to call downtown Fort Wayne home. Here, you’ll find us rubbing shoulders with terrific neighbors at the corner of Lafayette Street and Douglas Avenue in the 46802 zip. We’re proud of this space—we designed, decorated and, in some cases, built it out ourselves. Shoot us an email, and then ride on over sometime for a tour, deal?

Directions: We’re conveniently located on the second floor of the standalone brick building at the corner of Lafayette Street and Douglas Avenue that we share with Prana Yoga and the community of 1301 Connect. After parking in the ample, well-lit and free lot behind our building (enter the lot via Douglas), you can make your way to the building’s northeast entrance (closest to Douglas, on the backside of the building away from Lafayette), come up the steps, and find us down the hall through the red door. Trust us, it sounds a bit more complicated than it really is.
We are proud to call Northeast Indiana home and couldn’t be more excited to be located in the heart of Fort Wayne—our city.
  

Why downtown? Because we’re believers that a community with a strong, vibrant, diverse and culturally energized urban core is the kind of community we want to call home. Our office and its location must exude the passion, hustle, bustle and character of our brand. The city’s center is alive. You couldn’t drag us out of here.

From concert events to boards of directors, from volunteering to arts happenings, you’ll find OLGers actively making a difference throughout our community. Here's the deal: what we're up to is about more than just loud gigs with cool posters. Our hope is that we are enriching the artistic and cultural scene in Northeast Indiana.

Community

We feel it's part of our civic responsibility as professionals working and playing in downtown Fort Wayne to help our community become more vibrant and prosperous. It’s with the partnership and trust of our awesome clients, partners and friends that we're able to be the company we want to be.

Sometimes we provide financial sponsorship, but we’re really more interested in in-kind work, service and volunteerism. Recently, we’ve supported the following groups in that way: Arts United, AWS Foundation, Cinema Center, City of Fort Wayne Gateways Task Force, dAnce.Kontemporary, Downtown Improvement District, Embassy Theatre, Fort Wayne Speaks, Fort Wayne Cultural District, Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Fort Wayne Trails, Friends of the Rivers, Greater Fort Wayne Inc., Learn United (for United Way of Allen County), March of Dimes, Neighborhood Health Clinics, Northeast Indiana Red Cross, Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, Taste of the Arts/Dessert, Turnstone, Viking New Tech, Vision 2020, Women’s Bureau’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes and YLNI.
