Eight Year Shout-Out

8 years in and we're still going strong!

We took this pic for our first press release, trying to look professional. Also in the pic is our buddy Eric who was with us for a while in the very beginning.

About a week and a half ago, we celebrated eight years of Paragon-ness. I couldn’t let the occasion go by without mentioning it, and saying special thanks to two of the most awesome people I know, Drew and Phil. As corny as it sounds, I don’t know where I’d be without these two incredible guys in my life. We started the Paragon right out of SCAD, not having a clue what it took to run a business, but with the idealistic zeal of freshly minted designers, thinking we could change the world with our designs and love where we worked.

Skip ahead to 2009 and it makes me happy that we’re well on our way to reaching our goals. We’re doing our part to help our community and our world, working with amazing clients who trust us with their brands and their friendship, and best of all, we’re getting to do it together.

The entire journey has been amazing, intimidating, inspiring and life-altering…and we’re just getting warmed up!. Thanks to my boys and their families: Drew & Carla, Phil, Marissa & Eli.

Susan’s a multitask-er who prides herself on the vast number of things (read: loose papers and coffee cups) on her desk at any one time, and yet she still manages to keep an eye on all the moving parts at Paragon.
