A New Year, A New Vanguard

We got off to a great start in 2013 working with a variety of clients as well as doing fun projects for ourselves. Over the past 3 months, we have learned so much about what it means to run a creative agency on a shoestring budget. While we do have our own specific roles, there were many times where we put on our various role hats while we rolled with the punches as well as the many sleepless nights coding, planning and getting our stuff ready for the next day. It’s been a real trial by fire for us and we’re all the better for it. We’ve made it this far and plan make 2014 a great year for Vanguard as we start to stretch our legs. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters and most of all, our awesome clients! Without you guys our dream would not be possible!

Our Biggest Accomplishment of 2013

Studio 15 – Together with Fredericksburg All Ages, we came up with an advertising campaign and microsite for their recently acquired digital studio space named “Studio 15”. The microsite gave an overview of what kinds of workshops they would be hosting as well as a wish-list for equipment and software they needed, a list of supporters, and donation links. We helped them establish a good presence in social media as well where they shared daily updates, photos of the renovations, and their donation goals.
