Milestones

A handful of shops have celebrated notable milestones recently, including…

10 Years

Red Sky and SOVRN both marked 10 years in business earlier this year.

Red Sky chronicled their past decade in this infographic.

While SOVRN celebrated their anniversary with a block party that included a $10K giveaway.

20 Years

DaviesMoore recently crossed the 20 year mark, and chronicled the journey here – 20 Years on the AgenSea, and with this video.

40 Years

Not to be left out, Drake Cooper — the elder statesman of the group — celebrated their 40th anniversary with an event at Cinder Wines.

Congratulations to all on the milestones.

Job opening: Copywriter

SOVRN in Boise is looking to add a Copywriter to their team. From the job description on their website:

First and foremost, you should be able to write. Headlines, content, storylines, fun stuff—not technical stuff. Coming in a close second is that you need to be able to come up with ideas and concepts. We have a team that can bring just about any idea to life, but we want another great creative mind to add ideas, opinions, perspective and experience. You need to be confident enough to present any idea to the team and take constructive feedback without feeling it’s a personal attack.

Things you better be if you apply:
– Born to write irresistible prose
– Able to take feedback without taking your soccer ball home
– Flexible without being a pushover
– Self-driven, motivated & confident
– More effective as part of a team
– Nice

Things that don’t make the cut:
– Flakiness
– Negativity
– Arrogance

Full details and how to apply can be found on their site.
