#MODTALKS: LOVE IS BLIND

By Maria Orozova / Agency Culture

Last month, I had the honor of speaking to the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) during their February professional development luncheon, where I delivered the presentation, #LoveisBlind. Appropriately titled (V’s Day is in February, get it?), my presentation centered around creating fan love for your brand via social media. We had a laugh or…

Beyonce, Her New Album and Why We’re Bowing Down

By Bianca Krause / Agency Culture

‘twas the night before the night before Christmas and all through the town, King Bey’s album was still spinning, and all were bowed down. It’s probably fair to say that Beyonce has delivered a one-two punch of incredible marketing savvy and repeat-worthy tracks with the surprise release of her newest album. The standout track on…

Kutcher is the New Confucius

By MODintelechy / Agency Culture

In case you missed it, Ashton Kutcher dealt out some pretty solid life advice at the Teen Choice Awards. Why were we watching the Teen Choice Awards? Irrelevant. In his acceptance speech for Ultimate Choice Award (or in his words, “the old guy award”), Kutcher imparted some serious wisdom onto viewers, expanding on this notion:…

A Toast to MOD

By MODintelechy / Agency Culture

Much like grains of sand slipping hastily through an hourglass, so too did A Toast to MOD come and go all too quickly. Okay, so that was a hair dramatic but we had such a fantastic time at our 5 year anniversary party last month that we wish it never had to end. Thank you…

Holding it all together

By MODintelechy / Agency Culture

Backpacks are somewhat of an obsession for me. I can never seem to find that perfectly cool combo that holds all my gear yet looks streamlined and a little rugged. I’m not going to say this limited edition from Mission Workshop is perfect, but it’s definitely close. I love the utilitarian feel of the clasps…

All Wrapped Up

Wrap magazine is my favorite new find. Every issue comes with wrapping paper samples from notable illustrators that are always eclectic.

The Holiday (Business) Party Done Right

By MODintelechy / Agency Culture, Marketing

The typical holiday get-together is oft reserved for out of town guests, crazy 3rd cousins and awful ’80s sweaters (preferably worn ironically). But when you move beyond the eggnog and santa suits, a well-thought holiday soiree is actually an easy opportunity to connect with clients. Make your party stand out in this busy season with…

Welcome to Austin, H&M

By Bianca Krause / Agency Culture

I do not wait in lines – unless those lines lead to Margiela. When I arrived at the Nov 20 H&M launch party, the line to get in was wrapped around two blocks. Now, I’ve been ecstatic for H&M to open in Austin, but in all honesty, I only RSVP’d to the launch party to…

By MODintelechy / Agency Culture, Marketing
