Out of hibernation

“Spout Off” has been in hibernation for a few months now due to a variety of circumstances — some good, some bad. But mostly, we’ve had our collective noses to the grindstone and have been enjoying a terrific summer of producing great creative.

And now with summer ending, we’re taking a deep breath and dusting off the old blog to tell you about the news and happenings with your favorite downtown Phoenix design studio.

First of all, big shout out to our long-time client, Pat McGroder of Gallegher and Kennedy, a Phoenix-based law firm. We’re helping him serve his clients by providing top-notch legal animation and video that bring his cases to life. Another shout out to the Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Group at Fennemore Craig, headed up by Marc Lamber and James Goodnow, for bringing us in on several of their cases as well.

Our legal niche is becoming very exciting for us. We’re branching out with new ideas and groundbreaking ways of helping attorneys present critical information. And we’ve enjoyed the opportunity to get to know some of their clients and help them receive the results they deserve in their injury cases.

But that’s not all we’ve been up to. We’ve started to see things move a bit in the business community and some signs of overall economic improvement, and we’ve made some great connections on exciting new projects. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the Arizona Heart Foundation, Downtown Live! and several other significant organizations have brought us on to help tell their story in compelling, innovative ways. We’ll be telling you more about some of our killer projects in the coming weeks.

Finally, we’ll be revving up the First Friday activities at our studio starting on September 3rd. If you’re down and checking out the scene on Roosevelt, head a block south on Third Street and come say hi. We’ll have artists and performers on hand, and our team would love to catch up with everyone.
