A bold move
The recession was hitting hard; impending doom was setting in. Tens of thousands of jobs were being cut daily.
Adam and Joyce became casualties of corporate downsizing and lost their jobs on the exact same day, one hour apart. This is known as black Thursday.
12 days later, Joyce goes for job interview and instead of a job, Joyce picks up first client.

Having been in business over 35 years, we’ve worked with a lot of marketing people and agencies big and small. I have to say that no one has come close to Thinkhouse. Adam, Joyce and their team are fully invested in our success and are constantly proving that to us by keeping us top of mind and coming up with creative & progressive ideas to help market ourselves to stay ahead of the curve. (Even though we don’t always do what we should.) Working with Thinkhouse for over 8 years has truly been a pleasure and it gives us peace of mind knowing that they are an extension of our team. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a solid marketing/creative shop. Thinkhouse rocks.
