Holiday :: A Crafty Halloween

October 30th, 2015 | Blog, Happening, Holiday

This month, we were asked to participate in a special Halloween project for Neenah Paper – remember last year’s Halloween craft party?

This year, instead of a party, our concept was to come up with some creative and spooky Halloween paper projects to showcase Neenah’s beautiful fall-inspired hues, like Wrought Iron, Eclipse Black, Arancino and Sunflower, among others.

Throwback Thursday :: #tbt Amy Shares and Strategizes with Explo Students

July 17th, 2014 | Blog, Happening, Throw Back Thursday

This week’s #TBT is a throwback to almost exactly a year ago when Amy spoke at Yale’s Explo, a 3-week summer program for exceptional young students who are open-minded, bright, and most of all – open to new experiences.

We love that kind of thinking, and Amy is honored to have been invited back this year to share a successful case study with the students and conduct an exercise where they will use their creative ideas to develop a mini-marketing plan. Amy will speak to Explo’s students next Wednesday, July 16th.

We love the philosophy of the Explo program, and…
