It’s hard to believe we’ve crossed the halfway point of 2021, but here we are. And there’s so much to report. Ted Lasso Season 2. Another big win at the Oscars for Pixar with Soul walking off with two golden statuettes. Oh, and how could we not mention Loki? What a ride! And like the mythical Marvel trickster, we at Matter accomplished a lot over the course of the last few months.
Roll out the red carpets. Put on your finest of fineries. It’s awards season, and Matter is absolutely cleaning up with our podcasts, branded videos and live virtual experiences and product launches. Now, we don’t like to brag – it’s just not in our nature. But we can’t pass on an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the hard and downright impressive work our team members have done in the last year. Especially if that light comes from prestigious awards programs and ranges in hue from platinum and gold to silver and bronze. So, without further ado – and with special thanks to The Telly Awards, MUSE Creative Awards, NYX Video and Marcom Awards, Hermes Creative Awards, Communicator Awards, Bell Ringer, and the Vega Digital Awards for their consideration – congratulations to the entire Matter creative services team. You’ve earned it!
