2014 was an awesome year. Here are a few of the highlights for our Pittsburgh ad agency:
We expanded our team and welcomed Andrea Short, Client Services Manager, Molly Fallone, Social Media Manager, Caitlyn Depp, Inside Sales Representative and Sam Eisen, Copywriter Proofreader as the latest Apple Box Studios additions. And, more importantly, a new mascot: Chicko…Director of Cuteness.
We are excited about the addition of some new clients this past year including: DCK Worldwide, NearShore Technology, Visit Milwaukee and Rinovum.
In summer 2014, we continued to support our charity-of-choice, Parkinson Foundation of Western Pennsylvania. The Apple Box Team joined forces with friends, family and community members to increase awareness and raise money for the Parkinson Foundation. The fundraising also included an annual Moving Day walk. More than $3 million was raised in 2014, (a $1 million increase) and we are proud and excited to have been apart of it.
We had a video go viral. It wasn’t quite a Kim-Kardashian take-over, but the Mighty. Beautiful Pittsburgh spot for Visit Pittsburgh, produced by Apple Box Studios had a surge of 100K+ video views spanning a little over one week. The video was featured in a blog post from movoto.com in early November with the title: “If You’re From Pittsburgh, This Will Be The Most Jaw-Dropping Thing You See Today. Hands Down”. The blog received almost 540K hits and spread through social media. Along with our friends at VisitPittsburgh, we were beyond excited to see the video go viral and generate so much Pittsburgh spirit and buzz.
We expanded our social media reach. You can now find us on, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and SlideShare! We post content daily on industry tips, trends, inside news and other goodies! Check us out with a /appleboxstudios.
And to top off the year, we ended with a Christmas party for the ages that included stops at some of our favorite Pittsburgh places like the Pittsburgh winery, Meat and Potatoes and Club Cavo in our hood – the Strip!
Thank you to our friends, clients and creative partners for another wonderful year and your loyal friendship. Looking forward to all 2015 has in store for the Apple Box Studios team.
