The Ink turns 13

We are officially a teenager full of attitude!

I find it hard to believe 13 years have gone by.

I started my company out of my bedroom in my family’s summer home on Cape Cod at the age of 28 with just a phone, laptop and printer. It was a transition time in life, after losing my job at Razorfish as the dot com era crumbled. I had a choice to either get another agency job or try my hand as a freelancer. With my severance check in hand, I decided I had nothing to lose. I moved to New York City a year later after winning Esteé Lauder as a major contract.

The company has grown exponentially since that time. I now have up to 12 freelancers working with me at a time and continue to enjoy our client collaborations and partnerships. I am thankful I took that chance 13 years ago. I look forward to the next 13.
