• New Rant: Where for Art Thou, Colorado Client? >>

    / Comments (0)

    ..look at the marketing manager’s other option. He decides to go with a Colorado agency. Now what? Well, he can kiss goodbye to his boondoggles. No more flights to New York, complete with bulging expense reports and fine sushi dinners at Morimoto’s restaurant. And let’s not forget the overnight stay in a five star hotel. Nope, he’s gone from being a rock star client to your average Joe driving a few blocks downtown for a meeting over some Jason’s Deli sandwiches. Wow. Big time.

    Great new editorial from one of our favorite Egotist contributors.

    Something’s going on over at FriendsofMine.tv. It appears to be a new motion graphics collective comprised of local talent. The site is obviously still under construction, but with Adam Espinoza and Adam Singer being a part of this, we foresee good things. Anyone have any more information on this?

    Also, a converted Airstream? Really? Awesome.

    (thanks Heather)

  • The Denver Egotist Lands in The Denver 50

    / Comments (1)

    For the second year in a row, The Denver Egotist has landed a position among the 50 elite ideas in Colorado over the last year. (Hells yeah.) This time, it was for our first birthday extravaganza and Sukle’s takeover of our site the day after the party. It appears the ad club printed the wrong write-up about our campaign in the award show book, as we had credited Sukle for their hand in the idea – but their name doesn’t appear as a credit in the book. So, we’d like to acknowledge now that we couldn’t have done it without their help. For the full story about the campaign including visuals, check this out.
