Cats

I just really want to write about cats. Cats are super rad and they are cooler than your mom on a winter’s day. One has to ask though, why do cat people get such a bad rap? I don’t have any compelling arguments to change your preconceived notions about cats,…

In Soviet Russia, Camera Shoots You

I’ve always tried to be a creative person, but I always just end up tagging along with the creative people hoping it will somehow rub off on me. The only praise I ever got on my creative attempts was from my mom. Thanks mom! But that’s ok, I somehow landed…

Nostalgia & Wanderlust

Recently, I was able to bring our ancient medium format film scanner back from the dead, and so I had a little fun scanning some old forgotten negatives. There was one roll of film I dug up that I especially enjoyed seeing again. It was from a road trip I…

Precious Object

I was in a meeting last week, and it was one of those second meetings with a new client that isn’t quite a client yet, but soon will be. Hopefully. This means they’re still in the process of introducing you to people higher up in the food chain that always…

We’re hiring again

There is no Santa. But there are shoes.

When I first started working here, I had this idea that EMRL was this… perfect microcosm of the glamorous, brilliant world of advertising. THEY’RE SO SMART AND THEY HAVE SUCH GOOD CLOTHES. I’ve come to realize it’s not like that. Not everyone is a killer business person. Not everyone is…

I found this amusing

Doing research on the power of using data to find potential customers for one of our favorite clients, I found this site: http://iknowwhereyourcatlives.com/

An Ode to Vivian

Actual things I said prior to hiring Vivian: “I’m not making room in the bathroom for another girl’s stuff.” “You guys better not pick anyone skinnier than me.” “I like being the only woman. Don’t hire any more women. I am the Queen Bee.” (Actual meme Vivian has sent to…
