Outta our way, regular kids. We’re back-to-school shopping for the VIKs (Very Important Kids) at Washburn.
Did you see us at the Target? Pushing that cart through the school section like the retail pros we are, with scrap mounted on an oversized mood board or two for inspiration, and Pantone chips taped to the back (for accuracy, you know). No rule saying donated supplies...read more
In this case DECA stands alone. It doesn’t need some dumb suffix to give it self-worth. It has an in-yo-face all-caps type treatment and 70-year history practically demanding a salute from lesser acronyms. Identifying emerging leaders since the 1950s(!), DECA just so...read more
We don’t know what the ‘cool’ committee looks like, but for some reason we’re picturing silk paisley smoking jackets with velvety lapels.
Our new (self-designed) Fame office space just landed itself in the Cool Offices feature on bizjournals.com. Which got us thinking…what do you wear when you’re an arbiter of cool? Do you dress down and try to make a statement? Or do you dress up and make a whole other...read more
When the artist says the pieces speak for themselves, like how much are they gonna be sayin’? We don’t wanna have to shush ‘em when we’re trying to focus. And what do their voices even sound like? Sponge Bob? Pepe Le Pew? The ‘Behold, the power of cheese’ guy? Soooo...read more
Being recognized can be bad. Like when someone says “Heeey…you’re the one who face planted in the skyway and spilled your Taco Johns.” (Uhhh, whaaat?! We have zero clue what you’re talking about). And being recognized can be oh-so-very good. Like when Graphis says,...read more
Founding something (say, a country or ad agency) leads to some pretty big things. Like sold-out Broadway rap musicals. And impressive interviews in the Star Trib.
Robertson: the Musical. We can tooottally see it. After all, thanks to our Founding Foremother, we are celebrating the first year of our famedependence—the perfect subject matter for the Star Tribune AND the Great White Way: Lynne’s persistence in breaking free from a...read more
We do love us some accessories, but five AIGA WINNER sashes all at once might be a little much, right?
They’re not actually official since we made ‘em ourselves, and some of the letters fall off when it’s humid out. Nevertheless, we’ll store them in our Sash Drawer for special occasions (or days when we have no office visitors, lest they get the wrong impression)....read more
So people like you, do they? Well, send us all the nice things they’ve said about you. You knowww, all that stuff about your enviable relationship building and communication skills, and your ability to sell amazing work to people who may or may not be typically...read more
It’s not every day you can put words like ‘frolick’ and ‘happy hour’ and ‘snuggle’ and ‘goat cake’ all together without it getting really weird, but yesterday was one of those days.
A rare and momentous occasion this first Fame of the Free Day celebration was – and worthy of some merrymaking. And nothing makes us merrier than a coupla baby goats jumping all confused and crazy around our office. Well, that and some finely crafted cocktails by FOF...read more
We haven’t actually talked to her live and in person over champagne and Fritos or anything, but we feel like we have, since we read her book (twice) and DVRd a few (ok, all seven) seasons of 30 Rock. And to mark our big One Year anniversary of independence, it seemed...read more
How fares, superb designer? We dost soon hireth. Thrice.Design Intern? Sr. Designer? Environmental Designer? If any such titles doth apply, get thee thy link to us straightaway. We knoweth not why we speaketh so Masterpiec-eth. But to quote Shakespeare (or was it...read more
Calm down. It’s just ketchup. MyBurger’s new food truck, BERT (Burger Emergency Response Team) is standing by. (Please no ‘cat in tree’ calls.)
No flashing siren or get-out-of-speeding-ticket-free passes like a real emergency vehicle. BUT. That said, if you’re dealing with a private party catering ‘situation,’ MyBurger can send the Fame-designed BERT (Burger Emergency Response Team) to the rescue. WARNING: Do...read more
