Last Saturday it was 50 degrees, that's depressing as hell. We're hurting bad for some snow this year. And we're not the only ones that are snow starved. Super Top Secret is jonesing hard for the blanket of soft. They created this as an attempt to appease the snow gods. Let's hope Tebow can work his magic.
We hope everyone had a great holiday break. We certainly did. And now we're back at it. A new year is before us. 2011 was great. We saw tremendous work come out of the Bee Hive State. We here at the SLC Egotist can't wait to see what's in store for 2012. Let's get busy getting things done.
This is it everybody. We're taking a much needed break (remember all the typos last week?) for the holidays. We would like to say thank you for being awesome. And thank you to everyone that visits the site regularly and sends us emails and tweets. This whole thing doesn't work without you guys and we appreciate the love. We hope everyone has a great Christmas and enjoys some well deserved time off. We'll be back in January. Be safe out there.
Here's a little something to get you in the Christmas spirit.
We made it to another weekend. Congratulations everybody. This has been a great week. Amazing stuff is happening around town, some local shops are getting big props, and the level of work coming from SLC is continuing to turn heads. Makes us misty just thinking about it. We'd just like to say thank you to all of you out there in the trenches. You guys are working hard and your diligence and dedication to your craft is showing. Keep it up. But for now take a deep breath, kick back, and enjoy your weekend. Thanks for dropping by and we'll see you back here next week. Stay smart, and stay safe.
Google released its year in review this week. We love these videos. This one seemed a bit more poignant to us. Enjoy.
One of our readers sent us an early Christmas present. We got this yesterday afternoon and it was played pretty much non-stop for the rest of the day. This is a "music video" of Xango CEO and douche tool extraordinaire, Aaron Garrity. He delivers this soulful rendition of "Beautiful" as made famous by Christina Aguilera to an adoring crowd of millionaires in the making. Sign us up for the next Xango trade show, we'll be front and center with Aaron Garrity t-shirts ready to be signed by the master himself.
Congratulations to StruckAxiom. They were just named the lead digital agency for Jack In The Box. This is another great win for StruckAxiom, who have been on a roll this year. Most of the work will be in the Portland and LA offices, but it sounds like SLC will have its fair share of the festivities. A great win for a great forward-thinking group of dudes.

McCann SLC released a new site for its long time client, Verizon Wireless. The site is massive. According to an email we received, it's over 150 pages deep. That's an insane amount of work. And from what we can see, it's done very well. In our opinion, it's a huge improvement over Verizon's other sites. We don't know many particulars of who from within McCann worked on the site, but whoever did deserves kudos for sure. Take some time and click around. There is a ton of content including videos and demos. McCann has been doing some really exciting things lately. They are defiantly elevating Salt Lake's profile.
