In April I received an email from an old colleague and friend of mine at now Bogusky-less Crispin Porter + Bogusky, the advertising agency known for its warehouse full of Cannes Lions and rocking holiday parties. It read something like, “Hey. So, I am not sure your biz has any openings, but I wanted to pass on a resume of a friend of mine who is looking for something challenging & creative. She’s smart, fun, and a killer digital designer who used to work for CPB… If you actually do have a need, you couldn’t do much better than her. She’s also a serious foodie (she makes a mean brisket!), which I imagine is right up your alley.”
What followed was a link to the website of Ilysa Corns. Michael had wanted to update our dot com for a while now, but it had to be done right, with the right partner, and we hadn’t really been able to focus on finding that person. What I saw from Ilysa’s site was that our search would end even before it began.
Isn’t it De-Lovely when out of the blue, a friend drops a present in your lap? Now, we feel like breaking out into Cole Porter tunes each time we log onto michaelsgenuine.com. Now we just need to try Ilysa’s mean brisket! (hint hint)
