You may or may not be tracking our travels, but to catch you up to speed, we’ve hit Vacaville, CA, “some backwoods town,” VA (the official response I got when I asked), and most recently Santa Cruz, CA. Don’t get us wrong, we love our office — we have a talking monkey-speaker (this is a real thing and his name is Mango), some captain-hook regalia that spawned from an in-office joke, and plenty of space to crank out new ideas on the reg. But, like many people whose minds are a constant fireworks show of exploding to-do’s and should-have-done’s, we find it helpful to take a step back, breath, and look at the bigger picture once in a while. In our case, the big picture is this thing called Vango, which we hope you’re familiar with. So, to reference his majesty Lebron James, last Wednesday, we “took our talents” to Santa Cruz, where we geared up for the last few months of the year.
There are a few things in this world that we take very seriously, as indicated by their recurrence in the following stream of images. Coffee, post-its, the beach, having fun, and brainstorming all the wildest ideas that just might be crazy enough to work. To see all of our shenanigans, check out the facebook album.
The Coffee. Verve Coffee Roasters.
Vango fully endorses Verve and their delicious coffee…and also suggests that you drink it by the water for best results.
Each white page represented a topic, each post-it was an idea. As you can see, we will never face an idea-shortage crisis.
The Beach. Pleasure Point, Santa Cruz, CA.
These views were 0.2 mi from our lodging…and made us think seriously about relocating full time.
Celebratory champagne was in order when Vango reached the top page of the app store under Best New Apps.
It’s safe to say that we’ve got plenty on our plate for the months ahead of us and we could not be more grateful for that! Thanks for all the feedback, love, and shout-outs from both our artists and buyers. It helped fuel an insane amount of innovation and big thinking that we can’t wait to package into awesome updates and changes to make your lives (and ours) a lot more artful.
