Summer 2011
Edition I

The First Time


We didn't really know what we were getting ourselves into. The first Factory Week was an experiment, a leap of faith, a great unknown. We camped out for the week in an office park on the north side of Indianapolis with a to-do list a mile long.

A couple of people were overseeing renovations at our office while we were away. At the office park, we wrote our company manifesto, which began to shape what we now call culture-powered marketing.  We built a content gathering tool to use for our website projects with clients that greatly simplifies the content process and which we still use to this day. 

Early on our location had internet troubles. It got worse. There's no quicker way to kill momentum than lost interwebs when you're trying to make coding magic happen. So we made the call to relocate back to our office, despite the fact that there was wet paint and furniture rearranging in process. It wasn't ideal, but we forged ahead.

Luckily, we survived and learned a thing or two. We knew it could be improved upon (always, always really check your internet capacity!), but that no matter what, it was worth doing again. We committed to trying again every six months. Ans so, an institution was born.

This post is a little overdue, but better late than never. Factory Week was a very successful week, although we encountered our fair share of roadblocks.

Our website isn't the only thing getting a redesign. Our office is also getting a little love, including some fresh paint and lighting.
