Here at Brave Dog, we have plenty of be thankful for in 2016.
We’re settling into a new office, preparing to launch a new website, and have added some fresh new faces to our team this year, and we’re feeling pretty good. Brave Dog is stretching into new areas, learning new things, and meeting new creative people who we’re proud to call “partners.” And as we reach the end of the year, we’re looking back at 2016 as a big entry into the plus column.
Our successes are nice, but our partners have an awesome 2016, too, taking home hundreds of awards for the year – like truTV’s Grand CLIO at the CLIO Key Art Awards. With golds, silvers and bronzes collected from the CLIO Awards, the Key Art Awards, Promax BDA, and tons of other competitions along the way, we’re exceedingly thankful that we get to share the work of some talented people. Entering award competitions is what we do, but the process is a pleasure when we get to experience the fun, great ideas of our partners, as well as help advocate for the recognition they deserve.
More than just working with great people on great projects, we’re thankful for the trust our partners place in us. We know we’re asking a lot when we offer to take on your award competition work. You’re hoping you’ll win awards, sure — but you’re also putting the projects you’ve labored over in the hands of a group of people who weren’t there to work on it. That’s why we take what we do so seriously. We know what awards can mean to the people who’ve put everything of themselves into their work, and we’re honored that our partners trust us to help them get the recognition they obviously deserve.
We’re not quite done with 2016, but we’re thrilled with how the year has gone so far. And right now, it looks like 2017 will only get better — for us and for our partners. We can’t wait.
