Murals, Mental Health and Making a Difference: The Top 10 Posts of 2018

Welp. It’s finally here. The end of 2018. Another year in the books for this crazy world we live in. And just like years past, we never ran out of stories to tell.

IRL, 2018 has been … entertaining, to say the least. There was the royal wedding. Laurel and Yanny became the new “blue and black / white and gold” dress.

Two Years Ago Today, I Said Goodbye to The Greatest Copywriter that Never Was

Today is the two-year anniversary of my dad’s passing.

The ‘polite me’ feels the need to say, “It gets easier over time,” or “We’re just happy he’s in a better place.” But, no. It sucks. The only sugar-coated saying that has actually resonated with me is, “We’re thankful for the time we had.” Because, if not for him, I wouldn’t be a writer.

Make a Difference This Giving Tuesday (And Get Amazing Art, Too)

Each year we launch holiday season campaigns. Most are Black Friday or Cyber Monday-focused, but they’re always fun, challenging and, of course, a bit stressful. But as marketers, that’s our job. It’s our prime time, so to speak.

However, we don’t always get to make the world a better place with our holiday campaigns. This year we do.
