A Synthesis of Surroundings

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” – Steve Jobs
Avi’s Oils Make Public Appearance
Recently, Studio creative director Avi Schaeffer held his first public exhibit in seven years. Called, “A Synthesis of Surroundings,” his 11-piece collection of oil paintings hung in one of the main hallways at
the YMCA Austin Town Lake location. The Studio team visited Avi’s exhibit on two occassions: First as a team creative outing, which we try to schedule on a regular basis, and second during Avi’s public premiere.
In the exhibit poster Avi wrote, “My painting style is domestic surrealism, which depicts the cultural, political, architectural, and human nature of life and swaps subject matter to create a familiar and fresh experience.”

Jason and Katie work with Karlee to build the Recognizing Nurses Informational Kits. Kim and others from Studio pitched in, as well.

 

One of the things I love about our sales team is that they are constantly pushing the envelope, especially when it comes to promoting local and ensuring that the Statesman is continually involved in important aspects of our community. The latest endeavor is an awards program and event called ‘Recognizing Nurses.’ The idea is simple: create a program that allows anyone in the Austin area to vote on a nurse that has impacted their life. From the nominees, seven nurses are selected to receive the Statesman’s RN Best in Class Award at a red carpet event held at the iconic Paramount Theater on Thursday, May 18.

The Austin American-Statesman’s in-house advertising agency is Austin, Texas’ “best kept secret,” according to Dan Hanrahan, director of Statesman Studio.

The studio was launched in 2014 and is approaching $3 million in sales revenue, raking in $350,000 per month in sales-generated revenue. In order to create a successful in-house advertising agency, Hanrahan said the first thing they did was create a process and an established set of services and worked to find out what the market wants by working with local businesses and offering a strong product. For Statesman Studio that includes advertising, creative services, campaigns, native advertising, video advertisements and time-based services that allow businesses to choose the product they want.
