end of the decade

by Marco Rosano

Congratulations! You survived the year decade!

If it's been anything like ours, then we know exactly how you're feeling. We're exhausted, but for all of the right reasons.

2019 has been a very different year for us, filled with some incredible milestones, welcomed surprises and excitingly, a few new ventures that we cant wait to share with you.

Given that it's the festive season (and a time for giving), we thought we'd share a few highlights from the year that was, and as always, say a big thank you to those who were there with us - we couldn't have done it without you.

Some new faces

We had several new faces join us this year, each of them bringing a fresh new set of skills and insights across our Development and Marketing teams. We've been extremely proud to have Hazal, Kristian, Kyrylo and Grace join the agency.

Some new clients

For a long time now, a core principle of our manifesto has been to "do great work, for great people." And while we think we have the work part locked down, the clients who have joined us this year have truly validated the second half of that statement.

In 2019 we were joined by Crestone Wealth Management, Sonnant, CIC Facilities Services, Table Birds, Nana Huchy, Resmed, Australian Eggs, Burninghouse & Utility Group.

And we weren't kidding about the milestones. 2019 has proved to be our biggest year yet in terms of the number of projects deployed.

Within the past 12 months, we have launched a staggering 22 projects across varying platforms, which is the single largest amount we have produced in our 10 years as an agency! Not just the quantity, but the quality of each project has simply been remarkable.

Some awards

And with so many projects, this year saw us add a number of prestigious awards to our collection.

  • The Webby Awards
  • Good Design Awards
  • Driven x Design
  • Awwwards
  • CSS Design Awards
  • Premier Design Awards
  • CSSDA Best Innovation
  • CSSDA Best UI
  • CSSDA Best UX

Finally, a new website!

Yes, we know, it's two years overdue. And YES, the whole team is sick of hearing about it. But...

Much to our delight, our new website is finally live. A poor excuse we know, but with client work always taking precedence, we simply haven't had the time to finalise things for our own site.

An artist is never happy with their work and this is no exception.

A lot of iteration has taken place and is still taking place. But we got there, and needless to say, we're happy with the outcome. I mean, you're here now.

What do you think? Let us know.

So, we have some pretty exciting news...

What started with an idea is now a fast approaching reality. In March next year, Soul+Wolf will be presenting NO/BS. It's been an incredible journey thus far, but we're booked and well and truly live with what's being labelled as a "Digital Reality Check". The concept for the event was fused together out of frustration from attending too many conferences that offered nothing but fluff and ‘pie in the sky’ fairytale content.

Our conference, unlike anything ever assembled here in Australia, has been designed to create a space where like-minded people can get together, create an authentic digital community and learn from amazing insights delivered by the leaders in our field. And not just leaders, but individuals who have succeeded through sheer grit and determination.

We have spent A LOT of time putting together a world class program of international speakers. Just to name a few...

  • Matias Corea, Co Founder 'Behance'
  • Eric Snowden, Director of Design, Digital Media 'Adobe'
  • Scott Thomas, Co Founder 'Noun Project' & Creative Director 'Pinterest'
  • Sadok Cervantes, Design Lead 'Wikipedia'
  • Caitlin Nitz, UX Strategist 'Instagram'
  • Angela Guzman, Founder & CEO 'Tijiko' & Creator of 'The Emoji'
  • Matthew Encina, Chief of Content 'The Futur'
  • Lysandre Follet, Director Generative Design 'Nike'

You can find out more here, including the full list of speakers: https://nobs.events/

It will be a phenomenal event and since our launch, we've been picked up by a number of leading online publications. Excitingly, we've also just publicly announced Adobe, Shopify and Nova FM as major sponsors.

Early bird finishes this week, but if you, or anybody in your network is interested in attending, click here to automatically receive a 10% discount at checkout.

You'll be in great company as we have a number of high profile teams already attending. In any case, we'd love to see you there and your support would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

From all of us here at Soul+Wolf, thank you!

Working with you has been an absolute pleasure and we can't wait to see you all in 2020. Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the festive season. We'll be back in the office from the 6th of January.

Should something urgent arise, and in digital, we know these things can happen, please reach out to either Jason or Marco at any time over the next two weeks and we'll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Happy holidays!

Jason & Marco
