On March 28, 2015, AAF-Orlando held their first ever Ad Help Day at Kre8 Media in Winter Park, FL to help Central Florida nonprofit organizations. As public service chair, I had the opportunity to organize and facilitate the event that benefited 12 nonprofits. We ended up with 12 amazing ad industry volunteers who graciously donated their time to work with the nonprofits and the event went swimmingly! Below are some photos and projects from the event.

If you're a small business owner, starting a website project or updating your current site can be a daunting task. Finding a new web developer or development company can be as stressful as a first date, with a proposal soon to follow. Thankfully this isn't 'til death do us part,' but a healthy business ...
This is a continuation of our Advertising Bits and Pieces series. This edition is all about Content Marketing. I am not about that measuring life.

Welcome back to our creative outlets series! It’s a time of transition here at Treefrog, with Ben joining us full time and Rita moving on to new things. In light of that, this month’s topic is one that is near and dear to both of their hearts: photography.

Even though we already knew who won, it was great to join in the celebrations and cheering. The theme for this year was retro video games. The tables each had little arcades filled with candy on them for the guests. Also, as each award was presented fun retro video game music played, which was a great touch. The Treefrog team spent the evening watching the bottom left corner…Go
