Counting Our Blessings

Well, we made it. Election season has passed. When America wiped the sleep from its eyes on the morning of Wednesday, November 9, 2016, the world looked a little different to a lot of people. It’s one of the great things about our democracy, a planned and peaceful transition to the next presidency.

Politics aside, there’s one thing we can all agree on — it’s time for a holiday. With Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, we’ve decided to spend a little time focusing on some good things that we’re thankful for around our office, the little things that make life brighter.

Some specific examples stand out, like our Studio Director Renee’s seemingly bottomless candy dish, frequented on a daily basis by more Adceterans than would care to admit it.

Or the Egg & Danger, a pop-up French press coffee stand sponsored by members of the content services department and named courtesy the Hipster Business Name Generator.

We also have two enthusiastic (fanatical) fantasy football leagues that provide an excellent outlet for healthy competition and some NSFW trash talk.

But there’s a common thread that binds all these together, something that all Adceterans are thankful for.

It’s our people!

We’re 90+ spirited, diverse (we have employees from more than 10 countries), crazy artistic people. And we actually LIKE being around each other. We laugh together; we cry together. We win and lose together. We keep each other sane. And that spirit of collaboration, professionalism, and mutual appreciation that ebbs through our office every day is the same attitude we pour into each and every one of our clients’ projects.

Regardless of political leanings; whether you prefer your turkey roasted, smoked, or fried; or if you care that the Cubs won (GO CUBS!), we still have a lot of things to be thankful for — 90+ reasons at least.
