Haven't heard enough about us over the summer? We understand. Let's catch up, shall we?
So...Christopher got locked up for MDA, Will found his inner marketer, Lauren furthered her clinical research on imperial brews, Megan channelled some aggression through a pair of skates & a mean elbow, and SLANT interns Duncan & Connor survived (relatively) unharmed. (A screenplay for Duncan's iPhone saga is currently in the works).
When Will first joined SLANT, Christopher promised him "fame & fortune". He's still waiting on the fortune but enjoyed several moments in the spotlight this Summer. Via a brilliant social media campaign, he was voted as one of the AMA's top 5 Charleston marketers of the year. The Charleston chapter of Architecture for Humanities asked Will to emcee their "20on20" version of Pecha Kucha that featured 7 presentations by some of the area's most talented architects & designers. Sadly, all of this extracurricular work derailed Will's audition plans for "Dancing With the Stars".
In the area of "real work", SLANT is preparing to launch a marketing campaign for Philips Electronics, N.A. that involved, among other things, creating a series of videos shot here in Charleston. You'll hear more about this in the next few weeks.... stay tuned!
We're also in the throes of product branding and development with Rush3 Product Design Studio - one of those fun, creative, inspiring projects that makes it fun to come to work - and drink beer during meetings.
And, at the end of the summer we can now consider ourselves experts in catastrophic subterranean shelters, art deco styles of the 1930s, the simple elegance of the black and white ad, and the enigmatic nature of Canadian business models. Well, we're still kinda stumped on that last one, but the point is that we've learned a lot.
So yeah - despite this miserable "economic climate", SLANT is staying busy and we are looking forward to an even more exciting and productive year-end! We'll keep you posted.
