Relocation marks new era for 48-year-old marketing agency

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – May 17, 2016DDCworks, an integrated branding, public relations and advertising agency, has moved its headquarters to The Cast Iron Building, located at 718 Arch Street in downtown Philadelphia as the agency continues to grow and to take full advantage of the new business, networking and recruiting opportunities Center City has to offer.

Since its inception in 1968, DDCworks has become known for its national and international client list.  Recognizing the benefits of a location in the heart of a major business hub, the agency jumped at this opportunity to move downtown.

“Philadelphia is a vibrant and exciting city full of driven, energetic and creative talent,” says Mike Diccicco, chief executive officer of DDCworks. “These are exciting times for us as an agency. Our partnerships have already seen the benefits from this relocation, and we’re building on that momentum.”

DDCworks’ new 5,000 square foot space in the old Lit Brothers building, an iconic Philadelphia department store built in 1868, is the only cast iron building still operational and the only full block of Victorian architecture within the city limits.  The modern yet industrial interior complete with ornate pillars, cast iron arches and floor to ceiling windows invites natural sunlight to fill the collaborative space shared between creative, public relations and media team members, and fosters a bright and energetic team environment. 

“Our new home is full of personality and really adds to the chemistry of the agency.” says Sean Donohue, executive vice president and creative director.  “The architecture of the building, the Lit Brothers innovative advertising legacy, and the overall feel of the place makes the Cast Iron Building a great space with a colorful history – just like DDCworks.”

Philadelphia is a place where corporations thrive alongside universities and rich cultural neighborhoods.  This diversity allows an organization as seasoned as DDCworks to grow its deep bench of staff experts, and has already led to expansions of its life sciences, financial, education and manufacturing industry clientele. DDCworks is continuing their growth with staffing announcements just around the corner, and looks to build on the momentum already in the works before this move to downtown Philadelphia.
