About Thinkso

Thinkso is a fully remote boutique creative agency headquartered in New York City. Founded in 2006, we’re a group of progressive strategists, designers, writers, and project managers who love what we do: producing exceptional brand communications and experiences for clients in a range of industries. Our work is strategy- and editorial-driven, using world-class design to bring messages and content to life to help our clients achieve their business goals.

Thinkso specializes in sophisticated B2B professional services, with clients in the finance, technology, legal, and business consulting sectors. To keep ourselves and our portfolio fresh and invigorated, we also work in a wide range of other sectors, including education, nonprofit/mission-driven, athletics, medicine, real estate, consumer goods, and more.

Everything we do is guided by our four core values: delivering excellence, choosing integrity, being scrappy, and enjoying the ride. While we’re all super-efficient, smart, and hard-working, we’re also fun-loving, supportive, quirky, and kind.

As part of our core values, Thinkso continually strives to advance the principles of equal employment opportunity to all applicants and employees, as well as foster a work environment where colleagues’ different abilities, sexual orientation, ethnicity, faith, gender, and other identities are celebrated.
