2010 was a giant year for ELEVATE. But we have plenty of reasons to expect 2011 to be even gianter (yes: we said “gianter.”)
First off, we’re pleased to announce the addition of American Signature Inc. to our client family. Second and third off, we’ve pulled Andy Fisher and Bryan Mulvany into our talent pool.
Back to American Signature Inc. You may know they’re a leading home furniture provider headquartered right here in Columbus. Well, they’ve officially picked ELEVATE thinking to assist with their outreach and communication efforts in 2011. This cool new partnership includes public relations execution, new product promotion and community outreach projects. With unique furniture lines such as HomeCourt by Lebron James and the Miss America collection, American Signature Inc. will be a perfect fit here at ELEVATE.
As for those two handsome new faces you’ll see should you get the chance to stop in and join us for an afternoon of creative brainstorming…
For starters, there’s designer Andy Fisher. He’s a graduate of CCAD and a self-proclaimed Columbus townie. He loves snowboarding and the smell of carburetor cleaner. Don’t let his curious tastes and quiet confidence fool you. Behind those chic glasses and easy smile lies a badass digital packrat ready to let loose his razor-sharp design skills on the rest of our creative team…and the world!
Follow him on twitter, if you dare. @wiiildstyle
And then there’s Bryan Mulvany. A graduate of Ohio Northern University in Ada, Ohio, Mulvany’s inner struggle to acclimate himself to big city life is often entertaining. His purple lunchbox and disdain for wearing shoes and undershirts make him the subject of steady criticism. But with his lack of uptown etiquette come serious task managing skills that will serve our account team well.
Tag along on Twitter. We promise he won’t bite. Much. @bryanmulvany
To make room these shining faces and all the new work they’ll be crushing, we just put the finishing touches on our expanded new studio space. After Troy had his fun literally knocking down a wall or two, we added four new work stations, an executive office, a private conference room and two collaborative work spaces. True, this afforded us some much-needed breathing space. But more important, it gave us more room for the claw game (yes: that’s an iPhone in there), the Ms. Pacman/Galaga machine, the Elevate moped and other vital pieces of office machinery.
There’s always something new and exciting taking place here at ELEVATE thinking, and you’re always invited to call us up and beg permission to stop on by and check it out. Seriously: we look forward to showing you our space, our people, and most of all, the outstanding work we’ve been providing our clients.
But enter at your own risk. You just might stumble into a Nerf gun battle. And, in Nerf, as it is in the branding process, our team has been full granted permission to fire at will.
