Our work for Be The Match has been recognized by some of the most prestigious organizations in our industry. The campaign, “Be The Guy,” has won an Effie, marketing’s quintessential effectiveness award, and was a finalist for The Webby Awards (including a Webby for Good award) and the infamous Art Director’s Club.

Also, the interns are coming. So we made a custom chatbot to help us manage potential recruits. Just text “intern” to 20-150DEETS (201-503-3387) and it asks, among other things, if you have a preferred way to see a dog wear pants.

Starting in June, we’ll have 10 new interns across our offices in Minneapolis, New York and Los Angeles.

Tee it up!

Over the last 30 years, no technology has become more synonymous with Nike than Air, so we wanted to celebrate it and literally take the shoe to the next level. We sent their new Air VaporMax to space and recorded the whole thing. Read more about it over at Adweek.
