Third Degree Monster Mash

Never ones to shy away from drama, or costumes... or a theme, we Third Degree-ers had to come up with a dress-up theme that would meet the standard we set with our Mad Men Halloween from last year. So what to do? What to do?


When in doubt. Go classic Hollywood movie monsters.


Tara, Creative Director, Bride of Frankenstein (with $8 worth of hairspray holding up one hair-do)


Daniel, Senior Art Director, The Wolfman (during transformation)


Brett, Art Director, The Invisible Man


We didn't even see him coming.


Jared, Account Coordinator, Chef from Blood Feast (did we mention part of our Halloween tradition is a potluck lunch?)


Amanda, Director of Strategic Planning, (and Strategic Vamping) as Bride of Dracula


Amy, Director of Marketing, Cleopatra and her Mummies


Misty, Operations Coordinator and Mutant Spider


Bring on the atomic mutant bugs! Caroline, Admin Assistant, as an Atomic Ant


No wire hangers!!! Account Executive Natalie as everyone's favorite silver screen mom, Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest


Priceless. CEO Roy as Vincent Price. Squinty equals sexy, right?


The scream queen Janet Leigh as portrayed by Pam, our numbers queen and Director of Operations


Who let the birds out? Who else could play Tippi Hedren...


... but our own blonde with a dramatic streak to match, Accounts Director, Kande

Oh, there's more. You can see all our Halloween pics here.

Happy Haunting!

Our Bulletin Is Anything But Bored

Someone once told us they felt like they already knew the people at Third Degree just by visiting our web site. It's true, we do post a lot of pictures of ourselves. Sometimes in costumes. We tweet. We blog. We post our key-lime-throwdown and our frying-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk results on Facebook. But there's also a good old fashioned way to get a peek into our agency culture.


Our break room (we call it the diner) bulletin board.


Fight On storyboard and diner sign we made as prop for end of video.

Sometimes it reminds of our favorite projects.


Tin cans for our Inside Voice video. Liz's idea day one-sheet about handcrafted elements in design.

We like to give props to our handmade props.


Idea day show-n-share, favorite outdoor boards.

Our office coordinator Misty handmade this billboard replica for idea day. I personally think it's better than the original.


Sometimes it's a place to find inspiration.


This is like a multi-tasking creative's version of a kitten hanging from a tree poster.


This looks like a harmless calendar. That's because we finally started covering up what's on the top half (which is not covered up at all).

Sometimes it just keeps us on schedule.


Like our idea day schedule.


Which is no laughing matter. We're hungry people. Now what's your freakin' idea!?


It's a place of thanks.

Our clients are nice. And have good manners. Like, they probably don't say freakin' as much as we do.

Roy's daughter Kendall's artistic contribution. Third Degree creative director 2030.

Our kids are nice, too. And, they probably do say freakin' as much as we do. Because we're bad influences that way. But at least the creativity is rubbing off. And the boastfulness. But, hey... what are bulletin boards for?
