The Empire of Nerds: Why I’d Rather Not Travel to a Galaxy Far, Far Away with My Coworkers

I love my job. I really do. Digital marketing is the best thing that’s happened to the tech industry in a long time. I also love my coworkers. I look forward to seeing them each day and they make my work environment one to be envied by many. But then in December of 2016, something... read more

Fresh Takes: Tangents and Brainstorming

So meetings here are usually pretty fun. Yeah, I’m actually being 100% serious about that. In fact, I actually look forward to meetings with the team because anything can happen. We go on tangents sometimes. It’s nothing bad because work still gets done. Actually, these tangents usually end up helping our clients in the long... read more

The Resistance Falls but IIS Marches On

IIS is moving on to greener pastures, so to speak. On our previous site, we published an article about our Friday team-building sessions with the board game ‘The Resistance”, a social, highly competitive game not designed for the weak of heart. Alas, all good things - even epic board games - come to an end.... read more

My Brush with Death

People often say your life flashes before your eyes the moment you’re face-to-face with death. They say you’ll feel the warm embrace of your lost loved ones and see their faces, vividly, as you start to slip away.

Turning Up the Volume on #Tunesday

We started something new here at Imagine It Studios on Tuesdays. We thought we’d gather our collective thoughts to give you an idea of what we listen to at the office. Music is a big deal for us.

Digital Passover

Tomorrow night, Jewish families around the world will sit down together to enjoy the traditional Passover Seder. We will retell the story of our peoples’ exodus out of enslavement in Egypt. The highlight for my children is the horror of the plagues.   Boils! Lice! Hail! Darkness! Death!   Wait…didn’t I just read something the other... read more

A Nightmare on Imagine It Street

Many know about Imagine It Studios’ knack for awesome digital marketing services, but few know about the supernatural occurrences that often plague our talented staff. It’s a touchy subject around these parts and one that often goes unspoken. It all started about a year ago when the office specter, Ghostmar, began to haunt the Imagine... read more

Life is Just a Bowl

The words “super bowl” have been mentioned quite a bit around the office recently. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing for a non-football fan like myself, but it does come with one major downside. I now constantly find myself thinking about the contents of this oversized bowl. Is it filled to the brim with queso... read more

Imagine It Studios’ 2nd Annual Holiday Office Decorating Contest

Holiday festivities and competition don’t typically go hand in hand, unless you work at Imagine It Studios.

When the Cats Are Away… (Insert Cliché Here)

Life as the boss of a digital marketing agency can be full of difficult and stressful situations. You’ll often find yourself trying to manage a myriad of projects all at once and sometimes worry over looming and important deadlines.

‘Pizza Wednesdays on Thursdays’

Every office has their collection of inside jokes, work traditions and unique stories to tell - like the time Mike became a bit tipsy at the 2012 Christmas party and rightfully earned the nickname ‘Magic Mike’. We've yet to let him live it down, but he doesn’t mind. In our office, we have no shortage... read more

My Modeling Career

Nothing strikes fear in my stone-cold heart as much as facing a camera. It’s embarrassing, really. Point a lens in my general direction and I cower in terror. Either I’ll stealthily shimmy away from the shot, hide behind another enthusiastic subject or begin sweating profusely when there’s no escape. It all gets worse if I... read more

Building Confidence in the Workplace

I love my job and coworkers. Most people can't say that, I think. For me, each day is an adventure with this group of individuals that know the perfect balance of business and pleasure. Our work environment is generally laid back with the occasional bout of deadline-meeting stress that comes with the marketing industry. Though... read more

Don’t Hit the Lights

There’s something about bright lights that just seems to rub our staff the wrong way. Actually, there’s something about any sort of lighting that rubs us the wrong way.
