The State of Transit: Recruiting a New Workforce

The State of Transit: Recruiting a New Workforce

With low unemployment, the recruitment and retention of qualified employees is taking a front seat. An organization that thinks strategically and proactively about how to attract and keep employees will gain the leading edge during the current job boom.

If you’ve swung by our creative services department in the last month or so, you may have noticed a new face. Along with a new, distinctively English voice. If you haven’t, it’s our pleasure to introduce our newest Graphic Designer, Harry Burgess. We sat down to ask him a few questions about his background and how he ended up here at DH.

Just a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend the IPREX Global Leadership Conference in Chicago. If you don’t already know, DH is a partner in IPREX – a global network of 65 independently owned communications and marketing firms.

#MeToo is here to stay

#MeToo is here to stay

The #MeToo movement has swept through Hollywood and politics. If you think it’s going to stop short of corporate industry, think again. #MeToo has become a collective ethos within our society and has touched every community in the nation.

A Conversation with Alex. Evans

We can’t wait for you to meet our newest team member Alex. Evans (yes, that’s an abbreviation for Alexandra). She comes to us after serving seven years in the Obama administration. We asked her how her career unfolded and what brought her to DH. We got a lot of cool stories.

Riverfront Park Brand

Riverfront Park Brand

Building a brand is never a walk in the park, but when developing a new identity for the heart of a city (that also happens to be a park), it takes a particularly thoughtful approach.

We’re excited to announce that DH Partner Andrei Mylroie was recently elected Global President of IPREX, an international organization of independently owned firms like ours. We sat down with Andrei to talk about why he got involved and to ask a bit more about IPREX.

A Conversation with Molly McNamara

We’re proud to introduce you to our newest Account Coordinator, Molly McNamara. Molly comes to us from Gonzaga University where she majored in public relations. She was a contract employee through the summer, and now that she’s a full-time employee, we sat down to share a little about her.

Congrats to STA and EWU on SPARK Awards!

Last week DH attended the Spokane Regional MarCom Association’s annual Spark Awards, celebrating the best marketing projects and campaigns in our region. We were excited to host two of our clients, Spokane Transit Authority (STA), and Eastern Washington University (EWU) as they won the two biggest awards of the show!

A Conversation with Taylor Oddino

Jessica Wade Senior Account Executive Taylor Oddino started at DH as an intern last summer, and we quickly realized she had something special. She joined our team part-time then became a full-time employee at the beginning of the year. She is smart, funny,...
2017 DH Calendar—Judy

2017 DH Calendar—Judy

Our creative services team is always making something cool for clients. But as we headed into 2017, we wanted to make something that showcased the wide range of our six designers. So we decided to make a standing letterpress calendar. Each designer was tasked with two months to design any way they wanted. This is the result.

2017 Trends in Marketing and Public Relations

2017 Trends in Marketing and Public Relations

Cheers to the New Year! As we launch into 2017, we asked a few members of our team for some of the biggest trends they’re seeing in marketing and public relations. Here’s what we heard.

Hashtags: Art of the Dual Wield

Hashtags: Art of the Dual Wield

One of the most common questions I get in social media trainings is, “How do I get my posts in front of more users?” After all–Facebook in particular is making it tougher for content from brands to be seen, sinking them lower in the newsfeed algorithm. Hashtags are low-hanging fruit to tap into wider, trending, timely conversations happening on social platforms. That’s all hashtags are, of course–a way to categorize conversation topics. The hashtags featured most in posts, trend.

A Conversation with Mindy Gagné

Mindy has had an interesting and varied background—from filming tankers refueling with the Air National Guard to collecting fur samples as a biology intern. She’s done a little of everything, which means she fits right in at DH. She loves the creative atmosphere of agency life and is always willing to jump in and lend a hand.

Spokane is fortunate to have a close-knit and growing community of marketing, public relations and creative professionals.

Why you should invest in "shared" media campaigns

Why you should invest in "shared" media campaigns

Every once in a while we run into a marketing statistic that blows our collective minds, at least at face value. I call it Mic-Drop-Math–a stat that reflects a potential game-change across the industry.

5 brands that won (or lost) the 2016 Olympics

5 brands that won (or lost) the 2016 Olympics

There’s always attention on the games, but with so much drama this year, which brands communicated a strong message? Take a look at our picks, and notice how every campaign name is a hashtag… Interesting.

A conversation with Shireen Khinda

A few years ago, we were fortunate enough to have Shireen as an intern—and we’re lucky enough that she returned to us full-time at the beginning of this year! Though she sits at the front desk, she’s often behind the scenes, helping us keep everything running smoothly. Meet Shireen!

A Conversation with Nico Archer

Nico joined DH in March. The great thing about Nico is he’s both a leader and a team player. He’s comfortable managing large accounts and coming up with big ideas, but he’s also willing to dive in wherever he’s needed. He epitomizes collaboration and believes putting more heads together creates a richer product. We’re excited he’s on our team.

A Conversation with Beth Hegde

Beth joined us as a freelancer during a particularly busy time at DH. We liked her so much, we asked her to join us full time. She is a pro at PR, a thoughtful team member (who, for instance, always cleans out the fridge when the rest of us forgets), and just an all-around good person, who cares deeply about her coworkers, her clients, and the world.

A Conversation with Sean Finley

Sean joined our team in March, and he’s jumped right in. A film fanatic and a talented designer and filmmaker, he brings skills and positivity to every project. We don’t think we’ve ever laughed so hard in a brainstorm until Sean joined us. Allow us to introduce you.

A conversation with Kaelynn Crume

Kaelynn joined our team as an intern, and we liked her so much, we didn’t let her go. She’s been a graphic designer at DH for over a year now, and she started full time in January. We have loved getting to know her. We think you will too.
