It was a special week for both the Martin family and The Simons Group (TSG). One of our editors, Lis Martin, and her husband Jake, welcomed their first child, Lucy Apple Martin, into their lives. On November 8 at 10:14 a.m., the 6-pound, 7-ounce, 20-inch-long bundle of joy extended the Martin family and became The Simons Group’s first newborn.
We cannot express how incredibly excited and proud we are to become work aunts and uncles! Many of us visited Lucy the day after she was born and immediately fell in love with her. She could not be a more beautiful little girl.
Welcome to the world (and TSG) Lucy! We are all looking forward to seeing you grow up.
The Simons Group attended the IABC/Chicago 31st Annual Bronze Quill Awards and Volunteer Recognition Gala on Thursday, June 7, where many outstanding communication professionals received awards for work submitted in 2011. With 27 categories, their work included everything from a Sealy ad campaign to marketing communications for the “McRib, Sandwich of Legends.” (more…)
Chris, our senior designer, and I have been working for The Simons Group for five years, and our fearless leader, Lee, decided we should celebrate. Last Friday, we closed the office early and assembled at Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab for the anniversary festivities. Our staff has been growing at such a brisk pace in recent months, and it was certainly exciting to meet everyone’s significant others and have some fun away from the office.
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for helping us celebrate. The past five years have flown by because it’s truly fun to come into the office every day. I’ve never worked with such a talented and caring group of people, and I can’t wait to see what the next five years have in store!
Have you decided what you’re doing this New Year’s Eve? If not, never fear – The Simons Group is here.
There’s nothing we love more than the opportunity to spread our creative wings and see where they take us. We’re pretty excited about our most recent endeavor – we hope you will be, too.
Check out our build-your-own-adventure New Year’s Eve card and let us know what you think!
I have been with The Simons Group for more than four years, helping to manage the office’s day-to-day operations. I make sure that our clients and prospects receive the best possible service and pricing for the work we do and that our creative folks have what they need to produce the best work for our clients. I really thought I understood the client/creative relationship.
That is, until I actually became the client.
Chris, our fantastic Web designer/rock star, just gave our client Great Kitchens Inc. a tasty new website. For the freshest custom pizzas and sandwiches, an equally fresh design: Lots of open space, bright colors and prominent product showcasing. We also incorporated the company’s logo in a big way, and simplified the navigation. Check it out!
In case you haven’t heard, The Simons Group team is growing. Say hello to Doug Petrole, business development manager. He brings a lot of energy to the office and mysteriously seems to thrive without the benefit of caffeine in the morning. How does he do that?! You can read more about Doug here.
We hope everyone had a spoooooky weekend. See how we got into the Halloween spirit by clicking here.
