Brand Retreat

One of the best parts about our Inno Gargae retreat is opportunity to get to know our team outside of working toward deadlines and critiques. In a sense, it is a fast track to the more personal level of all of our relationships. It was a joy to watch Danielle DePiper, the newest member of our team be dropped into the middle of the madness. (Side note: isn't her name amazing?)

As a fellow brand strategist Danielle brings a curious mind, a knack for copywriting, a generous spirit, and a fresh perspective to our little working family. I had the honor of "introducing" her through a pop quiz over amazing appetizers. If you feel up for the challenge you can try yourself! What were Danielle's answers to the following questions?

Who would be a dream client of yours?
Anthropologie
Barnes and Noble
Colorado

What is a tagline you wish you would have written?
All the News that's Fit to Print
Ideas Worth Spreading
Global Briefing

If you could only read one author the rest of your life, who would that be?
Tom Robbins
J.D. Salinger
Kurt Vonnegut

Dangerous
Dubbs
Darko

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A police woman
A pilot
A photographer

Her reward for opening up to us was that over dinner she got the chance to ask the rest of the team a question. She did not disappoint. Her question was, "If you could steal a trait from another member on the team, what would it be and why?" Amazing!

Thanks Danielle for sharing your talents with us! Glad to have you.
