#ToDoThisWeekend: #unscramble these 400 or so words #ScrabbleGrams #StuartBrownPlay

Posted on 22 Jan 2016 in Uncategorized, Weekend Things | Comments Off on #ToDoThisWeekend: #unscramble these 400 or so words #ScrabbleGrams #StuartBrownPlay

What’s a #Seahawks fan to do the weekend after they ran out of Playoff horseshoes dating back to last year’s NFC Championships? One option for me, and for anyone of similar geeky persuasion, is to work through back issues of ScrabbleGrams. Although I’ve already looked at all these myself.

8 kinds of work I like to do

Posted on 18 Jan 2016 in Advertising, Branding, Marketing, Not For Profit, Print, Storytelling, TV, Uncategorized, Websites | Comments Off on 8 kinds of work I like to do

(pictured here is the back cover which I shot imperfectly, somewhat intentionally…) Those of you who’ve heard of Brené Brown will likely grasp the significance of this.

US Thanksgiving Weekend is Canadian Superbowl Weekend

Posted on 25 Nov 2014 in Advertising, Marketing, Story, Storytelling, Weekend Things | Comments Off on US Thanksgiving Weekend is Canadian Superbowl Weekend

It’s #CanadianSuperbowlWeekend! Actually, nobody here calls it that (for some reason). But this is as much a note-to-self as anything: without the US hype machine, I’d actually likely forget that our nation’s best (American-style) footballers are hitting the gridiron for the 102nd annual national championship. And in my hometown. It’s also a justifiable reason to […]
