Every project we work on here at DDA is interesting in its own way. The programmers may dive into a project because they get to use a new type of code, the video specialists may get excited to try a new piece of equipment, and the copywriters may work on a new script that piques their interest.
In addition to all of our interesting work, we also boast a wide variety of personalities, and all have very different interests outside of work — whether it’s movies, music, video games, sports, shopping, the outdoors, or traveling. Occasionally, we get to combine those two things and work on a project that fits right into our outside-of-work interests.
That happened to me on Tuesday.
As anyone who has read my blog knows, I’m a HUGE sports fan, and spent my pre-DDA career as a newspaper sportswriter. So when a client came in requesting both a print and website project related to sports I was fortunate enough to be chosen as project coordinator. Now, it’s not that I don’t get excited about other projects, as well, but this one really interested me, especially since one of the clients is a former football player (and one of my favorites when I was a kid). It seems like a great project that should really take off in the future. And I’m really excited to be part of it.
The great thing about handling such a wide variety of clients here at DDA is that there’s a good chance everyone here has been involved in something that mixed work with one of their hobbies or interests. Our programmers, copywriters, search engine optimization specialists, video specialists, animators, and graphic designers all work hard and are great at what they do. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun outside the office too, doing whatever may interest us.
So when those two worlds collide it creates a great change of pace.
