I think a lot of people feel like this year was the epitome of everything weird and oh so incredibly farfetched. Here’s how one could sum up the past year…
I mean, I could just write zero words and communicate entirely in gifs (or even emojis) when describing 2016. It has been WEIRD. Bizarre even. From the likes of Brexit and Donald Trump, to losing the likes of Bowie, Prince and even recently Zsa Zsa. With all the terribleness of the year (irregardless of which side of the fence you sit) it hasn’t been all that it was originally cracked up to be.
For us here, it has definitely been an interesting year. It has had its good moments, bad and really odd moments. It hasn’t been easy, but as any good agency will tell you, it’s all about perseverance. Keeping on that grind and doing good work. As anyone knows in life, some things don’t come easy and some situations are less than favourable. But hey whatever doesn’t kill you right?
Now it’s nearly Christmas and the New Year, we do have a lot to be thankful for. Thankful for both our ol’ faithful clients to our exciting brand new clients. Thankful for our new stamping grounds and that this year is coming to a close but going out on a sombre high.
Also I know I may have mentioned somewhere about there being a possible following post to Part 3 of the Christmas ad reviews. There won’t be a follow-up I’m afraid. Far too busy kids, sorry. It’s 2016, the year of disappointments. Disappointments all round!
And it isn’t a real blog post with pictures so there’s a gallery (down below) of our ad agency year. As seen through the eyes of our Instagram. And many thanks to those of you who read our blog. Your viewership is most appreciated.
A special shout-out to our favourite Liverpudlian Paul Lewis as well who has left our team to pursue one helluva exciting opportunity in sunny Malta. You are missed and envied.
2016, you’ve been a memorable son of a gun. Here’s hoping 2017 doesn’t outdo you in all its weirdness. Have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year!
