Yearly Dose of Narcissism with a Smidge of SocratesPosted: April 11, 2012
I believe it was Socrates that said that 99.9% of PR is appearance. Alright, that may not be an exact quote, but it’s an accepted assumption in the industry. We agree to a certain extent but like to think there is a lot of substance behind what we do. So, as part of our 2012 overhaul, we realized that it was high time to focus a bit of time and effort on putting forth an image that complements the high caliber of our design clients. We hired amazing photographer Carla Choy and squeezed a day-long shoot in between phone calls, e-mails, and a regular day at the office. Talk about multi-tasking! The result: some head shots for our new website and a fun secret agent team building exercise.
Joking aside, it actually was Socrates who said “The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.” And in this case, we desire to appear like we enjoy what we do, there’s substance behind appearance, and we look damned good in trench coats.
So without further adieu, we’re going to be unabashedly narcissistic and share a few pics from behind the scenes of our super fun photo shoot. It’s weird actually being in front of the cameras for a change. (And having eye lashes for four hours.) Don’t worry, we won’t subject anyone to this again for a while.
Big thanks to Sherilyn Yi, songstress and make up artist for being patient with us!
This is our “cop” look.

Tools of the trade
It takes A LOT to get pretty.
Agent C – Before
Agent J – In transformation
That’s right folks. Behind the scenes ain’t pretty.
We keep telling Christine this should be her new perm-look. Hawt.
