this week at Plaid

Here's what happened this week at the world's greatest creative agency:

We completed PlaidNation! This was the best tour yet, and if you haven't already watched the videos, you should head over now - and then catch up on the tour blog. Loads of great stuff. We met great people, large and small businesses, some amazing brands and inspiring non-profits. We have a feeling that you'll learn something from each of them.

We hired Ausra! She'll be maintaining awesomeness levels throughout the Plaid organization, and we're happy that she's here. Learn all about her background and Candian-ness on her welcome post.

We launched the Plaidtastic Ten! This will be a site devoted to profiling ten people, brands or companies that we believe will inspire you. So far, we've profiled Scott Monty, the 826 Organization, and the boys from BlueFuego. Even more awesome profiles are coming down the pike!

We learned that Chris loves beefcake. Actually, Chris is a vegetarian (who had quite a bit of trouble finding food while on tour in the south), so we decided to celebrate his special day with a cake decorated with beef.

We were featured in Advertising Age! They published a piece that details our philosophy around business development, and how our tour, this blog and other Plaid goodness generates Plaid love all around the world.

We launched This is the first component in a campaign that we're doing for a division of the ALCIO, that assists soldiers transitioning back to civilian life. helps soldiers organize all of the things they need to do between now and their date of discharge - while promoting the job opportunities that exist with the Helmets to Hardhats organization. Send the link to anyone that you know who's about a year or less from coming home.

RJ got a haircut, and he wanted you to know.

Summer decided to follow the PlaidNation crew home from tour, so Plaidsters will be celebrating this weekend in style. Hopefully with BBQ. You should do the same.
