  • Don’t be a burnout. (Social media is your frenemy.)

    I love being casually informed in a wide range of useless topics: the sociology behind the filthy rich, the baby names of celebrities whose shows I don’t watch, and what exotic new place is going to be “the next Tulum.” To stay informed, I subscribe to a bunch of internet newsletters—Rolling Stone, Digg, PopSugar, Need 2 […]

  • Social Media Marketing: “I’m too old for this…”

    Why bother boomers with social media marketing?
    Recently, I was in a meeting where a prospective client said that social media marketing wasn’t relevant to their business. Their reasoning was valid. This particular client’s target audience was baby boomers—the generation who spent two-thirds of their lives without the internet. This generation is perceived to be barely […]

  • Company Man Studios & Buddy Brew Coffee

    It’s no secret that the Company Man crew has an ongoing love affair with Buddy Brew Coffee. Every day at around 3 p.m. you can see us walking in a line like little ducks over to Buddy Brew to get our afternoon dosage of caffeine. Cortados, espresso, black tea (and more) are poured over and […]

    A beginner’s course. It’s a hot-button subject that nearly every client hastily approaching advertising seems to want to address. What’s the trick to millennial marketing?

  • Browser Extensions for Designers: Plug it in!

    Useful Safari and Chrome browser extensions
    Although web design isn’t our primary focus at Company Man Studios, a lot of the work we do involves the interwebs. On a day-to-day basis, we’re using the world wide web for design inspiration, tutorials, and to download movies illegally compelling imagery. There are countless sources of information online. If you’re not using the […]

  • Community Outreach: Ad 2 Tampa Bay

    If there is anything the Tampa Bay community is short on, it’s not young, creative people. A great testament to this is the organization, Ad 2 Tampa Bay. Ad 2 was founded over 50 years ago, on the simple—yet omnipotent—idea of people helping people. Members of Ad 2 share an interest in adversiting, but also […]
