This is part of the "Design" month of the Technical.ly Editorial Calendar sponsored by Technical.ly, the network of local tech news sites.
When Happy Cog grew out of its 13th Street office, it moved just a couple hundred feet away to the Philadelphia Building at 13th and Walnut Street.
The design agency that has offices in Austin and New York City now has a 7,200 square foot space on the second floor of the building that also houses web dev firms Zivtech and Eight Eleven, as well as coworking space Cultureworks and up until recently, RJMetrics. (Couponing startup SnipSnap is now in the building that Happy Cog left.) Happy Cog moved in on Labor Day weekend last summer.
The company worked with Goldman Properties, who owns the Philadelphia Building and the building that Happy Cog used to inhabit, and Canno Design to build the space from scratch, said CEO Greg Hoy.
