By Amanda Guy -- Our Designer
Hey WheelHeads! Sorry I missed you last week, I ended up taking a day off and hanging with my Dad for his 60th Birthday, but I'm back and ready to update you on all things Wheelie! For starters, I'm sure you are wondering what we've been up to the last couple of weeks here at our HQ. Well kids, we have been up to a lot!
From gardening at the office, to finalizing this summer's Whitefish Trail Maps, we've been on a roll, and some of us have been on a roll down some stairs. And by some of us, I mean me.
Here at the WheelHouse
For those of you following along as we've worked to make our new office bright and beautiful, from painting to pallet wall building to infinity wall creation, here's the latest: I'm excited to tell you that Lisa spent the whole last weekend on her hands and knees planting flowers and weeding out beds. The yard is starting to look amazing Lisa!
Also, the lovely ladies at Sage Interior Design, next door, have popped by as well and told us they are planning on putting some fun flowers in the sign pots out front, and have plans to get a landscaper to beautify the place with us. Thanks ladies!!!
When we're not working on beautifying the office, we are working away on client projects like there's no tomorrow! We're having a wonderful time, and it's so awesome to be this busy.
The last two weeks have been full of website work for Dan and drawing and merchandise development for me. Courtney has created so many spreadsheets that she now dreams in Excel, and Lisa has been busting her butt to make sure we are on track with all things Wheelie. In fact, this whole week she's been hustling, exploring the design market in other regions.
I can tell you that she has tons of wonderful ideas for our future here at Wheelie, and I cannot wait to see her plans come to fruition.
This week, I also had the pleasure of creating fun designs for Spotted Bear Spirits! New products are in the works, so make sure you swing by for delicious cocktail in the near future. Lauren is going to have some cool things for sale as well as some tasty new concoctions for your taste buds.
A Wheelie Grand Opening?!?!
Don't worry, we haven't forgotten that we told all of you there would be super fun open house for Wheelie. We just wanted to make sure our office was in tip top shape before inviting a crowd over to enjoy the new digs. Courtney and I have been working on a plan and will be picking a date very soon for the actual Grand Opening. Most likely we'll have some fun craft beer, from our local brewery clients, and perhaps even a BBQ!
It's going to be bananas!
The Rebrand of Columbia Falls!
As some of you know, we just finalized a really fun project for Columbia Falls! Hometown boy O'Brien Byrd, and a wonderful, diverse group of Columbia Falls residents got together a few months ago and gave us their ideas to rebrand the town. They wanted a motto, a logo, and something that really spoke to the locals of C-Falls.
In the end the logo ended up being very well received, and I had the opportunity this week to visit the Community Market, where they had several pieces of logo merchandise for sale. The goal was and will always be to spread Columbia Falls Pride, and to brand a town that is welcoming, adventurous, and just plain awesome. After all, Adventure Lives There! #cfallswins
I was given instructions to collect some merchandise at the Market, and I had a blast! If you've never been, please make sure to attend at least once this summer. Believe me, you will not be disappointed. And . . . if you do buy a piece of Merchandise with the Columbia Falls branding on it, part of the profits go towards the Columbia Falls Foundation! It's an awesome thing they have going. Check it out!
Next week I will hopefully have some fun new office photographs to show all of you. Since our office is looking so glorious, we want to share it with the world. I also hope to have some new product photography from some of the things we've been working on for our clients. Now that I have that infinity wall upstairs, I can't wait to get going on our Wheelie Portfolio.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. Go out and ride your bikes for me if you can! Hopefully I'll be able to get back in the saddle again in a few weeks.
