Hey Everyone! I know I missed last week, so I feel like we have a lot to catch up on with my blogging duties here, but the last two weeks have sped by so quickly that half of my brain can't even comprehend right now. However, I think in a few words I can sum up last week, and then hopefully blow you away by this week's happenings here at the Wheelie HQ.
Last week was pretty much all about catching up with the move, organizing our offices, putting files away and making sure our internet was cancelled at the old office. We made stickers, posters, and three big concepts for a major event happening with one of our clients. It was a great week and flew by very quickly. We ended the week with some night skiing together up on the Big.
Over the weekend Lisa and her steamy, man-friend, Travis, sawed apart several wood pallets and laid them out to fit on one of our walls in the office. Mainly in hopes to spruce up the place and to give a little extra sound absorbency in the meeting room since this place echoes. Great Job you guys! It's going to look amazing.
(PS- If you run into Lisa around town, ask her why Travis doesn't have a beard anymore.)
This now brings us to the present week. And boy, has it been crazy. I know a lot of you have had those types of weeks where you tend to not even leave your desk to eat or use the bathroom until it's nearly too late. That's what it's been like for all of us here at Wheelie. But I will say, even thought it's been non-stop madness the last five days, I've had a friggin blast working on all the projects and still look forward to coming to work each and every day.
Now that we're into the month of February our theme of the month has changed.
It's time to recognize passion this month. What are you passionate about?
As I mentioned a few sentences ago, I still really look forward to coming to work, so I guess you could pretty much classify that as, "Amanda is super passionate about her job," and you'd be correct!
Why do something for a living if you don't love it in some way, shape, or form? I mean honestly?
I knew at a young age that I wanted my job to revolve around the arts and I wanted to take photographs and create things. Granted, my first dream job was as a Ghost Buster, I wanted to be a part of the crew and meet Bill Murray, but alas that was a bit of a long shot, so Graphic Design and Photography it is! And the last two weeks have been full of both those things.
Last week, we had a really fun video and photography shoot with our friends at The Historic Tamarack Lodge. We had a blast and even got to get some winter shots around the valley after the shoot for some B-Roll.
This week, I've been working on a few projects that allow me to use paper and ink to develop something from complete and total scratch! Extremely fun! I guess you could say that I was pretty passionate about the drawings I've been pumping out since Monday, and I continue to look forward to the projects that allow me to us that skillset more often than not.
Mainly this is why I titled this week's post, A Wheelie Sketched Out Week. It's not because I'm sketched out, but because I got to sketch some fun things and apply them to an extremely fun project we're working on with one of our favorite clients.
When it comes down to summing up this week, I really just have this to say:
I was passionate on Monday and find myself passionate on Friday about the same things.
I look forward to the weekend only because I get to shred with some friends and enjoy a bit of Winter Carnival madness.
Most likely I'll be thinking about work over the weekend, but that's okay. My job is rad and I hope you find the same passion in your job as well.
Happy Friday Everyone! See you next week for another round of, A Wheelie__Fill In The Blank__Week.
