I must say, I LOVE working with clients who challenge me. Creatives, meet someone who can't take NO for an answer. This is the reason I'm constantly researching for new items and looking out for excellent suppliers. I need to be prepared for those moments notice.
Recently, I was pleased to once again have the opportunity to work a client who ~ let's just say ~ know exactly who they want to reach out to. They have a work culture not so easy to find in the valley anymore, work harder but play harder. For a recent event they needed something fast. After a few suggestions, they came to me and simply said "we want energy drinks". Of course, I said "SURE! Hang on". My supplier had a normal 10 day turn around. We needed to turn this one in 5 days. Naturally, I did my usual "let me talk to the owner cuz I can't take no" sweetness. Then, shortly thereafter, back to preferred client with "I can do it!" And we did. And it was successful. My client was happy. I love happy clients.
My sincere thanks to Ooyala for trusting me with their recent campaign. Please visit their website, they are hiring talented engineers. And they're a fun place to work!
