farewell bbdo proximity

Jordan Smith

Today is my last day at BBDO Proximity. I'm saying goodbye to my first agency, filled with people who have helped me grow professionally and personally over the last two years. I have so many amazing memories and a lot of things that I will miss. Luckily, Gif Shop has been there along the way:

We ran around. (Tess Haun starred in my very first animated gif)

We broke down walls. (Ross Phernetton, Stephanie Terhaar, Grant Eull and Andy Kass)

We had meetings. (Betsy Robson, Brook Lorntson and Eric Hansen)

We had meetings in hotel lobbies. Hotels we were not staying in. (Sean Lackey and Brad Go)

We photographed food. Very slowly.

We drank. (Stephanie Terhaar)

We had a great view.

We had temporary tattoos.

We bit off more than we could chew. (Eric Hansen and Jason Craig)

We had the lightrail.

Okay. So I won't have to miss the lightrail. I'm only moving one stop down. On Monday, I'm joining the team at Colle + McVoy. While I'll miss BBDO Proximity, I'm excited for the memories and work I have to make ahead of me.
