Bold Beginnings

By J.L. Stevens // Published on Jan 31, 2014

1. Boldwerks isn’t cubicle land. Adam, Matthias and Chris have their own offices, but frequently hit the central lab (where I work), to debrief and enlighten. They know how to hit a deadline and crack a joke. And don’t forget Papi. I’ve only met him once, but the four-legged little guy definitely rules the roost. He even made it onto the banner.

2. The vintage record player is awesome -- whether it’s playing the new Doug Tuttle LP or Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. And I’m sure I can bring in my Townes Van Zandt to lighten up the mood. Right, Hislop? And we all know music inspires creativity.
Heck, it is creativity.

3. The local movement has hit Boldwerks. This morning, we actually saw Portsmouth’s own Tom Colletta manning the main counter at Bull Moose while picking up some tunes. And then we went to Caffe Kilim for a bag of ground Dancing Goats coffee. No Folger’s for this crew. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

4. A day can go very fast. Between blog posts, social media, and actual face to face interaction, 5 p.m. comes around very quickly.

5. Our clients rock. We’ll actually be hitting Cartelli’s in Dover with the good folks of Dermatology and Skin Health. They are hosting a benefit that involves John Herman, martinis and Red Sox memorabilia: The trifecta! And it’s taking place at one of the only places in these parts to serve up Italian food alongside sushi. (Tickets are still available!)

6. The best is yet to come. Trite as that saying may be, it’s true. I’ve yet to the oodles of other clients -- Keith Lane I’m talking about you. And I’ve yet to experience spring in downtown Portsmouth. Both can’t come soon enough. Boldwerks.
