Mike Holloway Blogging, Branding, Music

If you haven’t already, start thinking about building a personal brand for yourself. In a world full of endless online applications for every job you’d ever think of applying for, marketing yourself well is essential. Check out an excellent example here.

Working for a Startup

Alli Myers Blogging

I like blogging for Michigan Creative, and I try to do it at least once a week. Brian, on the other hand, doesn’t blog quite so much. I can’t say I blame him, though. Between all of the meetings he’s always running off to and everything else that comes along with running the company, blogging can’t exactly be at the …

To be a startup or not to be…

Brian Town Marketing, Michigan Creative, Video

Now that is a fancy title. We are no longer a start up??? (read like Ron Burgundy..”I’m Ron Burgundy?”) Or are we? People have told me that if we make it past the first year, you are doing pretty good. People have also said that about the third year, and the fifth, and so on.  I still consider us a …

Musical Magic in Movies

Alli Myers Blogging

Some of my favorite parts of my favorite movies are those scenes that have such great music to go along with them, that those scenes are actually what we picture when we hear those songs from then on. If you think about it, movies (at least most of them) would be pretty strange without music. Picture two characters professing their …

Taylor Swift, I hate to love you

Molly Duda Blogging

Unfortunately it has happened again: Taylor Swift has released a new album. I remember hearing Taylor’s first country album in 8th grade and listening to it for days on repeat. “Guys, she just gets me”. “Guys, I think she wrote Tim McGraw about me because I have blue eyes”. I couldn’t relate to a single other thing on that album because …

New Movies Coming in 2015

Alli Myers Blogging

Anyone else excited for all of the new movies coming out next year? I know I am! I’m sure some of them won’t be good (how many movies in a series can you really make before it just gets old?), but some of them… *cough* *cough* “Cinderella“… will be great. For a little sneak peek at some of the new …

New OS, New Me

Mike Holloway Cool, Technology

When I found out that there was another update Mac’s operating system last Tuesday night, I was very doubtful that the new version would offer anything new or positive for me; it always seemed to me that chasing trends of having the latest in software, hardware, fashion, and other things would ultimately be more tiresome (and expensive) than rewarding. After …

The Coolest New Music Video

Alli Myers Blogging

I can’t say that I really listen to OK Go, but I can say that I absolutely love their new music video for “I Won’t Let You Down” – it’s awesome. I thought it was cool that they were riding/dancing around on those little Honda scooters (The Honda UNI-CUB, to be exact) right from the beginning, but then you realize …

Getting the Most Out of YouTube

Alli Myers Blogging, Video

It’s easy to upload your videos to YouTube, but it’s what needs to happen after the initial uploading that can be difficult. Viewbix blog says that there are “more than 100 hours of video uploaded per minute” so, naturally, “it can be hard to make an impact on the world’s second biggest search engine.” Luckily, with a little time and …

It’s almost here… iOS8!

Alli Myers Blogging, Business, Technology

About this time last year, the Apple world was anxiously awaiting the release of iOS7 – the most dramatic change yet in iOS software from Apple. People spent hours trying to get themselves in the queue to update their iPhones and even longer waiting for the new update to complete installation. With huge changes in layout, appearance and functionality, iOS7 …
