Stevie in New Orleans by Michael Durr

I had an amazing time at Essence this year! It's always fun working with friends. Especially my little buddy, Stevie. He's a fun-loving little dude. Check out some of these quotes from the team. "No doubt he's literally the hardest working guy I know." - Ursula Ostrom

"I want to put him in my pocket and take him home." - Julie Hamilton

"The mini man can spin a sick beat!" - SkazDigga

"Bada Ba Ba Ba... I'm lovin' him" - Ronald McDonald

"Time for a nap. Stevie's got my back." - Video Projection Guy

"He just takes care of it." - Jahred Williams

"He's little but he can slam the Jack and Cokes. He also tips well." - Superlounge Bartender

"I wish I had his looks." - Julio Desire

"Who is this kid?" - Parrish Lewis

"He belongs in the rafters." - Daryl Malone

"He's a nice guy, but I'm still pissed at him." - Barb Gatson

"He's so cute. I love him!" - Kaleena Qualls

It was fun, but it's good to be home.

Wes Douglas by Michael Durr


Wes Douglas is one of the founders Maddock Douglas, Inc. He's a talented artist and fun to work with. We have done a number of time-lapse whiteboard videos, and projects together. He also has a unique style of "graphic notes" where he documents meetings with sketches and creative type. It is a valuable take away. At Maddock Douglas we have what is called the 9@9 a daily meeting where we all discuss the happenings of the day or share news about work and life in general. Wes then takes his notes and picks highlights that he captures on a white board in the office. Every week he captures it digitally and sends it out via email. We also go a printed book of all of 2012 at our end of the year meeting. It was an awesome journal and great keepsake for the year. Check out some of his work.
