Ending a whirlwind year with gratitude

Well, 2015 has flown by in a whirlwind of phone calls, meetings, project notes, brainstorming sessions, whiteboard scribbles, concept sketches, critiques, emails, interviews, Illustrator files, Indesign layouts, wireframes, presentations, press approvals, photoshop layers, analytics, reports, plans, code and coffee. Lots of coffee. The creative process is a messy one.

How about you? What was 2015 like for you? What challenges did you find yourself up against? What goals were you able to reach? What plans have you made for 2016? How can we best help you? We’re always asking: “What’s possible?” The creative process is an inquisitive one.

Looking back on this past year prompts me to offer up some big “Thanks!” Thanks to our clients for trusting us and giving us an opportunity to do our best work. We’re proud of the great organizations we got to work with and proud of the great work we’ve added to our portfolio this year. Creativity is a partnership.

Thanks to our families for their unconditional love and encouragement, for their listening ears, for their advice and for believing in us. Creative people need lots of support.

Thanks to my team for bringing their best selves to work every day and making our office such a warm, fun, energetic, creative and productive place to be. The creative process is a collaborative one.

Thanks to our suppliers for keeping up with our demands and for making us look good – even on our bad days. The creative process relies on outside help.

Thanks to God whose immeasurable grace, so perfectly expressed in the gift of Christmas gives meaning to our daily work and is the driving force behind our best efforts. The creative process is after all a reflection of His work and His ongoing providential care.

Merry Christmas everyone! …and may you have a blessed New Year!
