Every day, we make it our goal to never stop learning. To play in a world that links technology and human behavior. To think and make. And to be inventive.
That’s why nothing’s more rewarding than when others recognize our work and reward us for it. Which is why we’re so excited to have been honored with THE BEST OF SHOW at the Philadelphia Addy Awards for our Pic Nix Campaign.
Sure, we built a robot. And yep, we were trying to help rid Instagram of all those clichéd posts. But Pic Nix wasn’t just a fun and exciting solution to a problem. It was really all about developing a new skill set and knowledge base that we can use in a real-world application for a brand experience on behalf of our clients. Which is what being inventive is really all about.
