Conshohocken design agency Think Brownstone unveiled a new Center City office last July, celebrating the occasion with a Mayor Nutter ribbon cutting and its annual wine and cheese tasting for Bastille Day.

Think Brownstone opened the office in the Packard Grande building (at 15th and Sansom Streets) to accommodate growth, the company told us in May.

Out of the agency’s 50 employees, 15 work out of the new office, including three from the leadership team, said Phil Charron, vice president of experience design. All employees who live in Philly or commute through the city had the option of working from the new office full-time, he wrote in an email. Some chose to stay in Conshohocken.

The Packard Grande is a residential and commercial-use building, which also houses Del Frisco’s steakhouse.

Twenty employees work out of the Conshohocken office, while the other 15 work on-site at client offices. Think Brownstone declined to name those clients to “protect the details of our client relationships,” Charron said. The agency has worked with big name corporations like Comcast and ING, as well as smaller outfits like WHYY’s NewsWorks and iPipeline.

Clients can also use both of the agency’s offices for meetings to “get their teams out of the normal cube life,” Charron said.

The grand opening for the seven-year-old company’s dramatic new office, with marble and wood detail, leather furniture and floor to ceiling windows, offered a peek into a more mature tech company. Think Brownstone’s annual Bastille Day celebration drew an older, more buttoned-up and corporate-feeling crowd. This was no local beer and hoagies hang: partygoers sipped champagne and hovered around the fresh mozzarella table.
