SolidLine: 2015 By the Numbers

Well, folks... 2015 came and went quicker than we could have imagined. We couldn't be more excited to see all the awesome opportunities 2016 has in store. But before we head out for the holiday break, we thought we'd share with you all the special accomplishments we've had over the past 12 months. Take a look below at the video our Post-Department created, which of course couldn't have been done without the Production crew bustin' their butts, too. Special thanks to our amazing crew who pushes us to the next level with every video we produce. And a special thank you to our monthly Behind the SolidLine readers -- you guys rock!! See you in 2016.

The Official SLM 2015 Christmas Poem

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the office, one could find a word rhyming with "office."
Ed Boe was in the studio, juggling cameras and sliders,
All while daydreaming about photographing spiders.

Krommy worked tirelessly on his accounting in the C-Suite,
Secretly hoping for Santa's help with his balance sheet.
Greg Vass strutted around, coffee cup in hand,
Asking each crew member about their holiday plans.

John managed to edit while sports-ing and tweeting,
Music-ing, sarcasm-ing, John-ing, and eating.
Tracy stopped by to give us Christmas high fives,
Congratulating the crew with her cool, happy vibes.

Petrik made doodles like the one down below,
Ignoring all direction. We'll still use it, though.
Adam was happy 2015's almost at an end,
And he'll probably never buy a new house again.

Ali hid in her office, door shut and lights dim,
Waiting for Santa Claus to take her with him.
Handy, our mascot, just kinda stood around,
In true Handy fashion, not making a sound...

The crew gathered together by the SolidLine tree,
And for a moment, we felt like a little family.
But before we fly the 'ol 2015 kite,
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

A Year of Social Media Banners
Every week, SolidLine's Art Department creates a new banner graphic for our social media platforms to keep our awesome friends, family and fans in the loop about where we are and what we're doing that week. So, at the end of the year, it's kinda fun for us to put all of these banners together to reflect upon and look at since they're pretty. You can see all of our banners from this year by clicking the graphic below. Enjoy!
