2011 was a year of positive growth and change for Table XI, as we launched a slew of projects, hired a host of people, and found a new home in the West Loop. For a quick rundown, over the course of the year we:

  • Launched six new websites for Ebert Presents At the Movies, Facing Disability, Design Without Barriers, The Spice House, Old Town Oil, and Strange Cargo.
  • Welcomed eleven new staffers: Micah Gates, Chris Stump, Kate Garmey, Tushar Samant, Alicia Drucker, Mark Rickmeier, Jon Fernandez, Jason Hanggi, Jason Pearl, Mike Laurence, and Dan Rench.
  • Helped launch our sister company, Pegmo, a new social media portal that rewards members for using their favorite brands.
  • Started working with new clients Noble Schools, PUSH Wellness, and GoldDigger—stay tuned for more on these projects in 2012.
  • Took a company retreat to Kohler, Wisconsin, for some fun and strategic planning, and started prepping for our second company trip to Costa Rica in February, 2012.
  • Moved into a new loft space to accommodate our growing team and celebrated with clients, families, and friends at an open house.
  • Welcomed to our kitchen chef Aram Reed, who has joined Ellen Brast in cooking us delicious lunches a couple of days a week.
  • Hosted our first “Lunch & Learn” meet-up focusing on social media tips and tricks. We’ll be organizing more of these next year, so let us know any topics you’d like us to cover!
