When our founder and CEO Monica Kolbay realized that ArachnidWorks was fast outgrowing its current home, she set her sites on finding us a new one. She approached her search in the same way we approach every client— with fresh eyes and a view toward new possibilities.
At the top of her wish list was a historic building in Downtown Frederick that she could purchase and adapt for use by our modern, creative business. She envisioned a building near the epicenter of our community that was easily accessible to our clients from Baltimore, Washington, and Virginia…with space for our staff of a dozen employees and growing with plenty of room to spread out…and a place where we could comfortably welcome clients and host the occasional AW happy hour on a Friday afternoon.
When she toured 47 South Carroll Street late last year, she knew she had found everything she wanted in a new home for ArachnidWorks before she had even reached the top floor.
Today we are proud to officially announce our new headquarters in downtown Frederick, MD.
Just steps away from Frederick’s Carroll Creek Linear Park and across the street from the Delaplaine Center for the Arts, the circa 19th century brick building was ideally located and extremely well-constructed. A former owner, a talented architect, had designed the interior space with a view toward historic preservation and future sustainability. From the weathered brick facade to the original cross-grained wooden floors, the building is functional, practical, and beautiful!
Monica and Brian Kolbay purchased the building earlier this year, paving the way for moving day later this spring. We look forward to sharing our new space with you and the rest of our clients and friends very soon.
We’ll keep you posted!
We are very excited to welcome a new team member to ArachnidWorks! Meet Jean, our newest Director of Client Engagement & Strategy.
Not only has she already taught us what a “Schnauzerpalooza” is (hint: it’s when her two adorable Schnauzers come into the office), but she also brings a multidisciplinary approach to many facets of marketing and project management. We can’t wait to see what new level of benefit Jean will bring to our clients and their marketing strategies!
Our 2019 holiday party was a huge success! We had a really fun time throwing hatchets at Stumpys Frederick – as all of us got the hatchet on the board at least once! We also had a wonderful time at The Wine Kitchen, where we hosted our 2nd annual ADUB Awards and had a delicious four-course meal.
We can’t wait to see what 2020 brings AW, so feel free to stay up to date on our Facebook/Instagram pages or right here on our blog!

We are very excited to welcome a new team member to ArachnidWorks! Meet Brett, our newest Graphic Designer & Copywriter. Not only does he love dogs just as much as we do, but he’s also an advocate for the Oxford Comma.

We would like to say congratulations to our very own Junior Project Manager/Inbound Marketing Specialist, Jennifer Alexander, for obtaining her Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification!
Because the CAPM recognizes knowledge of the profession’s preeminent global standard, we could not be more proud of her hard work. We are very excited to have her begin working more closely with a number of our great clients!
Burgers, baseball, AND cowboy monkey races?! It doesn’t get much better than that.
Work hard, play hard… right?
That’s how we roll here at ArachnidWorks! Yesterday we met in downtown Frederick at the end of the workday to enjoy some fun, sun and great music at Alive at 5! We were happy to also see some great AW clients such as BaneBio and The North Market Pop Shop join us during the event.
Where will we be next? Who knows… but you can always follow along on Facebook or right here on our blog to keep track of what we’re up to!
Here at ArachnidWorks, we are always thrilled to make great additions to our team. We are happy to announce that inbound marketer Kabrea Hayman marks the latest in wonderful additions to our group!
