A Very Thoughtfully Curated Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Yeah, yeah, “Valentine’s Day is just a commercial holiday.” We’ve heard it over and over again. But here at TQS, we’ve decided we’re not accepting that excuse anymore. After all, who makes excuses to avoid spreading love and showing appreciation for the special someone in their life? Monsters. That’s who. Or people who just forgot [ view the rest ]

The Man Behind the 9am Bag of Buffalo Wing Flavored Pretzel Thins

Here at the Quilted Squirrel, we have a handful of daily occurrences that manage to provide a sense of comfort among the chaos of agency life. They’re kind of like our rocks* that keep us grounded. The “beep beep” of the alarm system when the door opens. The whirring noise when the tenant upstairs flushes [ view the rest ]

Holidays at the TQS World Headquarters

It’s the most wonderful time of the year over here at the TQS World Headquarters! The hap-hap-happiest season of all. We’ve had parties for hosting, marshmallows for roasting*, and caroling out in the snow.** There were scary ghost stories*** and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago.**** You may be thinking to yourself, [ view the rest ]

Sometimes We Do Work

It’s all fun and games until deadlines need to be met. (Actually, we still have fun with our projects – just not quite on the same level.) When we’re not judging cinnamon buns or relaxing near the tiki fountain, you’ll find us creating great things for our wonderful clients. Here are just a few of the [ view the rest ]

Thanksgiving and You

Ah, Thanksgiving. Soon, we’ll all be hunched over in discomfort from eating way too much pumpkin pie, completely ignoring our bodies’ signals to stop eating. This is, of course, at the top of everyone’s “Favorite Things About Thanksgiving” list. But what about those TQS folks? How do they really feel about Thanksgiving? What are their [ view the rest ]

7 Minutes in Chris’s Mind

You’ve likely found yourself wondering before, “What goes on in the minds of those folks over at The Quilted Squirrel?” Maybe the thought is brought on by being amazed at our sheer brilliance (we’re very modest here), or maybe it’s because we do things that can sometimes be perceived as being a bit odd (Whatever, [ view the rest ]

I Like Your Buns

When it comes to buns, we all have our preferences. Some like ‘em big and voluptuous. Some like ‘em small but firm. Some like ‘em round. Some like ‘em slightly irregular in shape. But there is one universal, self-evident truth: Everyone likes ‘em filled with cinnamon and covered in icing. That’s how the fine folks [ view the rest ]

As the Squirrel Turns

We’re baaaack. And so is Emily! A few weeks ago, our trusty account manager up and left us for a two week honeymoon hiatus on the island of Maui. As a result, all our accounts went into a wild panic, nothing got done around the office, and the women’s restroom got a facelift. The end. [ view the rest ]

367 Days

It’s been nearly a year to the day since last we posted in this forum. 367 days. Five hundred twenty-eight thousand four hundred eighty minutes. You’re now singing the song from ‘Rent,’ except it’s the wrong number. You’re welcome. Anyway, we will not remain silent any longer. Our voices will be heard. Our thoughts unleashed.

Cameron Crowe, Philip Seymour Hoffman and a Lesson in Engagement

Cameron Crowe’s films have brought with them more than a few splendid lines of dialogue over the years, and one has always stood out to me as particularly beautiful. I like to imagine he wrote the line in the hopes that it would one day become part of a conversation about marketing. We can all [ view the rest ]
