IGNITING ACTION

The creation of Friction Design came to life from a realization, through our 25 years of experience in the real estate industry, that ideas are cheap unless they ignite into action. From test fits to brand relaunches we know real estate marketing. We inspire immediately while being collaborative, transparent and delivering campaigns for each clients’ goals and objectives.

 

CREATING VALUE

Creating value while having fun is what we do best. We have sat at every side of the real estate table and can talk the talk and walk the walk. Many will say we’re experts in B2B and B2C marketing for office, retail, residential, mixed-use and home building verticals. We’re proud of what we have accomplished and want to help other companies create marketing that’s meaningful—for your brand and bottom line.

However you want to slice or dice it,
we have confidently crushed it.

TARA GOLDSTEIN

I am a Jersey Girl who took a bite out of the big apple where I spent the majority of my career. I ran global marketing for Brookfield Properties for eleven years, overseeing their 98 MSF portfolio. From the first person hired to leading a team of 25, I feel very proud and thankful for that chapter.

I since took a leap of faith and left the corporate world to create more marketing moments at Friction Design. Unlike many marketing executives, I roll up my sleeves and do the actual work—I thrive when I lead a project from concept to completion. I love brainstorming and figuring out a solution and then putting an action plan in place. Connecting with people and creating brand imprints is my professional passion.

I have traveled the globe, visiting over 40 countries and itching to get more stamps. My new obsession is podcasts, but nothing compares to being a mom to my 5-year old daughter and beach living along the Jersey Shore.

 
 
 

DANIELLE TAYLOR

I (happily) missed the app-dating culture but had I not, my About Me would read a bit like this: I am a social being. I love to be surrounded by people and immerse myself in the intricate details of life and this world. I am quick to add humor to a conversation, love a good glass of wine, the perfect denim, a night out with friends and spending as much time outdoors with my husband and two kids soaking up the sunshine (with lots of sunblock). I am a Virgo to my core; totally adept at big picture thinking, planning and executing (preferably a vacation), making lists and crossing things off. Oh, and my desk is just the right amount of organized.

I spent the past 10 years growing my career at Brookfield Properties and proudly worked on some of the largest commercial and mixed-use real estate projects around the globe. I decided it was time to challenge myself in a new way and get a little less comfortable as challenge brings change (thanks Robin Arzon for my new life quote). Joining forces with Tara was an easy choice, taking the professional leap was a bit scarier. Friction Design offers me a place to grow and be heard, and a space to elevate the brands of our clients. I know I will be proud of this leap for my next decade.

WILLIAM ZAMLONG

I have been an artist and creative thinker my entire life. I convinced my parents to send me to college and major in fine arts where I quickly learned that the world needs visual thinkers and there is definitely a commercial application for being a creative problem solver. I have further fine-tuned my problem solving skills spending mornings, nights and weekends chasing my energetic twin 3-year old boys around. Staying one step ahead of them has truly advanced my ability to think fast. 

With over 15 years of experience working as a creative professional, I have been fortunate to work with many top companies and brands on a wide range of projects including fully integrated ad campaigns, brand development, and targeted digital media. With every new project comes an exciting creative journey through brand discovery, ideation, and ultimately delivering creative results that are impactful and memorable.
