So according to the internet, Quentin Tarantino is rumoured to have directed 2016… Initially we agreed with this sentiment but then we started discussing it in the office and we concluded that every single year is a difficult year. Every year is filled with challenges. Every single year comes with its amazing high’s and its not so amazing lows… Is this not the nature of creativity? Can you imagine a year that passed us by without anything unexpected happening, a year that just chugged along with the daily routine of less thinking, more doing and absolutely no sense of accomplishment? A year with no passion, where working fast trumps quality time spent crafting ideas, where the only intrinsic reward from our labours is the opportunity to go home mildly satisfied…
A year as challenging as 2016 means that we got to go to work every day welcomed by the opportunity to invent something new. We’re confronted with intellectual challenges that have no obvious answers, we partner with smart, interesting and curious colleagues to solve them with words, pictures, stories and new technologies. We don’t have to punch a time clock. We’re not ruled by quotas. We may have to tolerate a fair amount of pressure and stress, but we rarely endure the burden of boredom. We can create, improve people’s lives, connect one another for the greater good, or just lighten up someone’s day. How lucky are we!
So with all that said, we want to take this chance to say thank you 2016. You kept your cards very close to your chest, and almost nailed us a few times with your sudden death plays (seriously, who didn’t think it was the end when Bowie died). You hit us low and tackled us high, you pushed us right to the precipice only to pull us back again and you were relentless… BUT you gave us no option but to think out of the box, to bust through our comfort zones, to experiment, to use every ounce of our creative mojo, to think big, to laugh loud, to love the daily ride, to take life in our stride and to always, always see the colour. We are so proud to showcase some of our 2016 projects below, and we just know that 2017 is going to be a humdinger!
