July Birthdays

When we sign office birthday cards, I’ve been trying to add a little sketch about the person being celebrated. Since COVID-19 and working from home, I haven’t been able to do that. So I decided to bring it back—virtually. We have lots of birthdays in July, starting with my copywriter partner, Alex Slotkin. Alex is probably one of the kindest and smartest guys I know. He's also the well-spoken voice our our team, when we present work. Alex is the reason I know terms like portmanteau and skeuomorphic.

Here I captured him as a Writer Bot

Next up is Jason Giles. I’ve worked with Jason, since he came to our agency in late 2002. We both moved with LAUNCH Agency when they broke off and went on their own, in 2003. Not only is Jason a ‘car guy’ with a true passion for driving, he’s also a good person to have in your life. I know this, because Jason can make everybody laugh, and he also takes an honest interest in what is happening with you. He’s a true friend.

Here I captured him as a Driver Bot.

finish this set with David Wilgus. Dave is a Creative Director and one of the principal owners of LAUNCHI’ve worked with Dave, since before they started the agency in 2003 and I continue to be inspired by him. Last Halloween, we did a group costume. Dave was Bob Ross and we were all 'happy trees'. 

The persona kinda stuck, so I capture him as a Bob Bot

Happy Birthday, Alex, Jason and David.
