OMnth In Review: November
November is weird. Weird weather, weird mustaches, and no holidays which leads to weird workdays. But through the weirdness, OneMethod ended up having a fairly eventful month. So let’s look back at what November brought OM in our first OMnth In Review.
November at OneMethod saw us welcome back old friends and meet some new ones. After a few months of battling crime, evil, and infection, KB came back to the studio and a tall stack of deliverables (sorry homie!). Kev is one of our many talented designers and also the creator of the Go Man comic series. In addition to welcoming back KB we also welcomed, for the first time, Linda Lee, a digital project manager extraordinaire. After I get to know Linda well enough to make fun of her, I will return to the post and edit it with a sure-to-be-hilarious quip.
Over on the Faceplace we launched Target Vacations’ Trip A Month project, which is as you may have guessed a contest where Target Vacations gives away a different free trip every month. The idea is simple yet radical and has so far been nothing but a success (we just hit 15,000 fans). If you haven’t entered yet, do so now. Moving from travelling to tacos, we also had two La Carnita events that could both be dubbed… whatever the spanish word for successful is. The first was at November’s Toronto Underground Market and it was nothing short of maddness.
People sprinted, tweeted, and feasted, and after all the achiote settled we had served over 800 tacos. A few days after TUM we fired up the deep fryer once again and took our tacos to Toronto’s hippest of hipster haunts (I type this in a loving way), the Drake Hotel. La carnage continued at the Drake and set us up for a few more high profile pop-ups in the near future. What else… well, we’re currently working on some pretty incredible projects that have us following notable small business owners for Quickbooks and digging deep into the crates with Toronto’s most respected DJs: DJ Mastermind and DJ X.
X and Mastermind are helping us put together a mixtape for our 10 year anniversary party in January so stay tuned if you want to watch a behind the scenes video and download the compliation.
I don’t want to get too into this one yet, but let’s just say OneMethod is growing.
We kicked off the month receiving this ADCC merit award for our 2010 Holiday .Gif Site. The site was once referred to as “quirky” and definitely has some charm. We also had two videos featured on Engadget. Both were videos for Nokia phones, the Nokia Asha 300 and Nokia Asha 303, with the latter being OneMethod’s first video to receive 100,000 views on YouTube.
OneMethod officially joined Google+. Yay! We think? We’re actually not entirely sure what that means, and apparently a lot of other people feel the same. But in any case, we’re there, wherever there is.
