The latest edition of Rue Magazine detailed the inside look of the offices at Grow Marketing in San Francisco. As soon as I turned the virtual page, I thought to myself, "I want to work here!"
Cassie Hughes and Gabrey Means used to be rivals, each working for fashion giants Gap Inc. and Levi's. After meeting and chatting over a bottle of wine, they decided they should start a new business venture, together. What formed was Grow Marketing, now residing on Pacific Avenue in historic Jackson Square in San Francisco.
The pair set out to create an agency of their own and "foster an environment that felt supportive, yet aspirational." After looking at the interiors of their offices, I think they succeeded in doing just that! Let's take a tour.
Exposed brick, crisp white walls and beautiful moldings are the backdrop for this stunning office. Gabrey and Cassie worked with designer Josef Medellin to transform the building, originally built in 1907.
Of course, the bright yellow furniture can't be forgotten either.
I'd gladly take a meeting in this adorable conference room.
Relaxed brainstorming areas are filled with leopard print upholstery and a vintage suitcase functioning as a coffee table. My mind is already traveling to great places just looking at it.
More white and historic moldings...and flowers. I can't forget the flowers.
Seriously, isn't this place so chic? Hard to believe it used to be a watering hole and brothel at one time, huh?
I love the open floor plan and the juxtaposition of the industrial stairs with the glamorous chandeliers and furnishings.
More cheerful office furniture...and those oversized mirrors? Amazing.
A workplace dreams are made of...
I sincerely apologize if you're reading this at your generic cubicle, but I can assure you you're not the only one longing for an office like this. Job well done, Means, Hughes and Medellin. Job well done.
