He sent us a great little promotional piece and we wanted to share it with you. If you want to know more about Brian, check out his site http://www.bookofbri.com/

ThomasARTS is working on a campaign for Zion's Bank called the Cheapsters. Basically it's a hunt for the cheapest sad sacks in Utah. The kind of people that shed tears when they first laid eyes on the 5 buck box from Taco Bell. ThomasArts will be holding a Web series featuring these masters of the penny pinch in a challenge based "reality" show. Think Survivor but with cheapskates. The landing page is fun, and the embedded video is really well produced. All work done by our friends at ThomasARTS. Make sure to check back periodically for the Web series. We'll try to include them here as they arrive.
The weekend is finally here. We're not sure about you but this week seemed to drag on forever. Maybe it's the changing of the seasons. We had a great time this week. Lots of good stuff happening around town. AIGA SLC and AAF-Utah are both bringing great events to town. Salt Lake City work continues to receive recognition for excellence. So yeah, things are looking pretty awesome around town. Thanks to everyone that sent in work and tips. Keep them coming. Local work is our priority. Now go on, get out of the office and enjoy the sun shine while it lasts. The winter is indeed coming. And as always, be safe out there.
Google released a new product called Google Wallet. And they used a certain neurotic New Yorker to help spread the news.
