What a year last year was and as many award programs start their push, we find ourselves in the midst of one. I actually found out while we were at TECHCocktail that we were nominated, which at the time was an honor. You work so hard day-to-day that it's great to see appreciation from peers within your community. As much as this nomination is great for Digital Operative; it's even better for the people on our team who bust their butts day in and day out to make sure that our strategies, marketing, design and development work is exceptional. So big pat on the back to our team and we'd love to invite our friends to give us a vote if you think some of the work we've been doing exemplifies what the following description is: "You are a San Diego based agency or consultancy that has made new media a differentiator in your service offering. You have run successful campaigns that have shown expansive growth. Your creative is shareable, your concepts are viral, and your execution makes you the agency of the year."
