Agency Day: Celebration with a Side of Sauce


At inferno, we love the holiday season just as much as the next agency, but we have something extra to look forward to when winter arrives: our end-of-year Agency Day.

The day launched with a presentation from the partners recapping financials, creative, public relations, and milestones from the past six months. We also learned that “Playing with Fire” team Badger Force’s performance in the penny wars was enough to pull ahead and win the year.

After business, it was time for food and fun. So, we wheeled our whiteboard over to Central BBQ for a saucy game of Pictionary. The “Playing with Fire” teams were able to earn their first points for the 2014 competition. (Pyronauts are in the lead.)

Partner Dan O’Brien also presented his legendary Legacy Awards. The highly anticipated annual ritual involves comparing each inferno team member to an obscure historical figure. No employee is safe from the sharp O’Brien wit.

The 2nd Annual Tacky Holiday Sweater Competition topped off the fun. Employees faced the applause-o-meter to vie for most-horrible-holiday-garb honors. Congratulations to Lyle Wardlaw who dethroned reigning champ Amy Lind and proved that her eye for festive fashion is truly unmatched.

Thanks to Dan, Tim, and Michael for another great Agency Day and an even better year.
