With some new faces 'round the office and a 3rd (third!!!) year of independence to celebrate, we took the afternoon off and headed over to Bad Axe for some hurling of heavy, sharp objects (positioned to the crew here as 'team-building'). It's a potentially...read more
We’re not big pause-and-reflect-ers. But we feel a li’l post-Show pontificating coming on. [Slow beard-stroke happening as we speak.]
We (like you, wethinks) are unabashed looker-aheaders. Gaze fixed on the horizon. Faaar more caught up in what’s kicking off than what’s wrapped up. Basically a Nascar race with no checkered flag. But not really loud like that, and with a nicer smell. Point is, as a...read more
How was it working with Pictura on The Show? Think slo-mo scene of us running through a flowery meadow. (You know – how most projects go. Ha.)
Much like small children, agencies are used to gettin’ the smack-down in the form of a big ole no. For lots of reasons: the realities of budget and timing – or insight-driven, well-considered strategic rationale like someone’s not feelin’ that particular color that...read more
Too many mochas on the field? Penalty. Dressed for the wrong sport? [Whistle.] Yeahhh no. Men in camo: this is football, not a duck hunt.
Fake (but faaaairly convincing) refs took the field on behalf of Mall of America at Super Bowl Live and kept the yellow flags flying for glamour don’ts, sportsfan no-no’s or crowd-etiquette-related fan fouls in a crowd-pleasing Fame/Street Factory collabo leading up...read more
Had the chance to rub unpadded-yet-still-sizable shoulders with NFL-ers (and PS: Sasquatch) on Saturday. We felt small. They’re big fellas.
Ah, but we were among friends. Freakishly strong, jerky-eating friends – as it was the VVIP (yep, two Verys) Super Bowl hospitality space we designed for Jack Link’s. We gave it a classed-up man cave vibe with ornately framed oil portraits of Sasquatch gazing regally...read more
You’d think after 15 years of hearing the St. Jude story, we wouldn’t get sniffly anymore. You’d think wrong.
Cry, cry, cryyyy. We never cease to be moved by the stories from St. Jude, which brought on the waterworks once again at the Red Carpet for Hope Golden Globes fundraiser Sunday night. Not just the delicate dab with a tissue. Full on messy-crying, the sloppy real deal....read more
We’ll get back to the power panel in a sec. But first, let’s talk Lead Like a Mother. With two of her three kids now launched and semi-self-sufficient (just kidding guys, you’re doin’ great – smiley face/thumbs-up emojis here), Lynne found herself with juuust enough...read more
Small Business Revolution goes to Bristol Borough, PA (as in the state, not the father figure). Episodes start tonight.
Small Business Revolution goes to Bristol Borough, PA (as in the state, not the father figure). Episodes start today. Know how a lot of reality shows are like train wrecks but you just can’t look away? Well, this isn’t that. At the risk of sounding hokey, uplifting is...read more
The NWBOC has just declared us a WOWCB. Deets below, but we’re liking the wow in the first part of that.
Apparently Lynne (who is a woman) owning fame (which is a business) doesn’t technically earn us the right to be called a woman-owned business. (Yeah, we don’t get it either, as our expertise with the law ended with the series finale of Ally McBeal.) There was one more...read more
If you already looked at these Wings Financial pics, then you’re a peeker-aheader and can’t play the game we had planned. (Awww, mannnn.)
We were gonna have you close your eyes and picture a bank, and theoretically it would be all bland and boring and yawny – so when we showed the big Wings reveal, it’d be like, Whoaaa, that’s a bank?! Woulda been fun if you hadn’t gone and ruined the surprise. Guess...read more
Group fitness makes you work out harder. So does trying on swimwear this time of year, but that’s a story for another time.
As we emerge from official Netflix binge season and start thinking about warmer temps and less Nanook-like clothing coverage, it seems apropos to talk fitness studios, like the one we just designed for Fly Feet Running a few blocks from our office. It’s a space...read more
Our CES highlights, reduced down like a fancy French sauce – but in true New Year’s resolution style, fat-free.
Our CES highlights, reduced down like a fancy French sauce – but in true New Year’s resolution style, fat-free. Three days on the floor at CES and here’s what we learned. (Although it’s been a week now, so 137,000 new things have probably already been invented.)...read more
