Farewell 2010 GI Recap

Farewell 2010 GI Recap

2010 was good year.

Most definitely an improvement over 2009 with the increase in exciting clients and projects.

2010 started a bit slow as we eased out of the MyPrinties.com big Christmas 2009 launch. We were pleased with the large sales and web registration numbers for the product. And relieved for the server holding up on December 25th (thank you Voxel.net).

Then a very cool video production for Syniverse Technologies called “We Do That”. Check it out here on their site – click the link at the bottom. They’ve won all kinds of awards for it in 2010.

In February we were pleased to receive a few Atlanta Addy awards.  A Silver and a Gold Pencil for our work on non-profit sites for The Home Safety Council and Atlanta’s Future Foundation. The awards ceremony at the Atlanta Aquarium was very classy and memorable.

From there we traveled to Detroit Lakes, MN to visit Lakeshirts and talk about producing an online custom spirit wear sales site (it launched in November – Blue84spirit.com). Then we were off to Pawtucket, RI to visit Hasbro’s corporate headquarters for another new project.

More awards in March. At the always glamourous Atlanta Marketers of the Year (AMY) Awards we picked up a winner for Printies and a finalist for Ron Clark’s Great American Teachers Club promotional site.

Through the course of the year we also completed a bunch of fun (and serious) video and motion graphics projects for the likes of Kimberly-Clark Professional (like Mr. Slim, Sustainability, SCOTT SLIMROLL),  The Retreat at Lake Tamaha and Webemetrics Monitoring.

During the summer we produced The Great American Teacher’s Awards online application and promotional site. And then attended the extremely classy and FUN awards show at the Cobb Energy Center.

In the late summer a few more awards for MyPrinties.com and HomeSafetyCouncil.org from the IABC Golden Flames Ceremony. A good time at the 80’s themed party at the Atlanta Biltmore.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention a low point. And that was having the studio robbed the late summer. A blow to moral and equipment but we per-severed and recovered with full force.

2010 also saw the addition of 2 super new folks to the Going Interactive gang. GI Chris and GI Jerry (as we like to call them online).

And of course there was a LOT more super secret work we can’t yet reveal but will see the light of day this year.

As usual The year ended with our as usual last minute scramble to produce a digital Going Interactive 2010 Christmas Card. In the end it turned out to be one of the best I think.

Here’s to an exciting, productive and fulfilling 2011!
