The fun never ends! Check out the photos from the mixer.

The mixer was a great success! A lot of new faces as well as old friends packed into our office Wednesday night. The wine was flowing while fooseball clanked about and the photobooth ran late into the evening. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the mixer. You folks are a whole lot of fun!

We've posted some of the photos taken in our photobooth on facebook. Have a look and feel free to tag yourself in the pictures you are in!


And now we mix.

Join us at Holy Cow's Studio for appetizers, refreshments and networking with the Saanich Peninsula business community. Come mix and mingle where the buzz is all about marketing, graphic design & social media! Photobooth included and foosball encouraged.

The Peninsula - Diverse by Nature

As part of the collaborative effort to brand the Saanich Peninsula and celebrate the uniqueness of our region, Holy Cow was honoured to be asked to create the new Peninsula logo. Reflecting the intersection of land and sea, the logo showcases the pride we have in our diverse island community. If you'd like to use the new logo for your Peninsula-based product or service, drop us a line via email or contact the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce.


#makeitcount - The hero of the new Nike film

Today, we're collectively oohing and awing over Nike's new short film 'Make it Count' shot by Casey Neistat. You might remember Casey's other viral video Bike Lanes - a humorous rub against NYPD for ticketing bikers. Seems Casey was asked to make a video for Nike to highlight their new ad campaign & Twitter hashtag #makeitcount - and instead of spending the budget on slick production, he took the money and did all he could in 10 days. And, all he could do in 10 days is truly something to behold. The stripped down spot places the product - the Nike Fuelband Fitness Tracker - in the backseat while we travel with Casey and his buddy around the world. It's pretty cool to see a brand successfully make a Twitter hashtag the hero of a campaign. Did we notice the product? No. Did we need to? No. We felt an honest connection with Casey's exprience, with the meme 'Make it Count' and with the brand.
