Think Brownstone has grown in so many ways since we started, it’s hard to believe it has only been four years. Today, we have an ever-growing list of happy clients, a crew of smart and talented designers, and soon we’ll have even more Think Space. There’s a lot of work to do, and it’s time to add another Brownstoner to the ranks.

This time around we’re looking for someone with a special combination of skills that are near and dear to my heart. As an experience design consultancy, 80% of the work we do every day involves helping people think through solutions to problems, streamline user workflows, and sketch easy-to-use interfaces – these are essential Think Brownstone skills. Then there’s the other 20%: Visual Design. Making It Beautiful. “Bringing It Home.” My training in graphic design taught me about this important step in the design process – and in today’s highly competitive market, smart companies know that making their stuff really beautiful is simply not optional. And so, we’re in the process of growing our team of visual designers.
