I felt it was the perfect time to pause, refocus, and strategize on bettering our clients and ourselves. Where better than to take the team to my most special of places, a place that has been in my family for almost 60 years, an adorable little cabin in the woods of Pinecrest, California. It is my safe place, and one I very rarely share, and I couldn’t have asked for a better 48 hours with a team that inspires me daily and who I call friends. We shared personal vision boards to keep each of us accountable to our dreams, shared 10 things none of us knew about each other, got caught in a Sierra Nevada rainstorm (amazing!), had every meal meticulously and deliciously prepared by Josh (he's an underground gastronomist), and most importantly we planned our strategy for the next few years. We focused on our values, our strengths, and the clients who trust us most. I leave you with this, Honey Agency empowers passion in our clients, in their crafts, in our community, and in each other.

We’ve been spying on the progress of the space for the past few months, & were thrilled to get the inside scoop & behind-the-scenes tour before opening day. As marketers & designers, we were immediately drawn to the historic 1800’s building and the incredibly thoughtful environment they’ve created for their customers. Temple was deliberate & designed the location for the customer - a refreshing change to the usual norm. One of few businesses with street parking for bikes, and a plethora of beautiful outdoor seating in the form of benches, tables, and large squared off boulders, this is a coffee shop where you will be encouraged to enjoy the space and midtown surroundings. Walking into the location, the eye is immediately drawn to the extraordinary flooring - made entirely of pennies. The modern Scandinavian-inspired interior fits perfectly with the exposed brick, and high ceilings. This Temple Coffee shop isn't all just interiors though, this location houses the only Kyoto cold brew system, which releases 1 drop of coffee per second over an 8 hour period to create a bourbon like finish. You can also find Nitro coffee + tea, & if you’re interested in a futuristic experience, they have an automatic pour-over drip machine, first of its kind in Sacramento. Pair your coffee with the delectable desserts (a mix of vegan & non-vegan) and you are sure to never want to leave this magical place. We are SO happy to welcome you to the neighborhood Temple Coffee Roasters & are extremely proud that you’ve been in business for 10 years. We are sure this location (1 of 5) will be the most successful yet. Open from 6am-11pm 7 days a week. Bee there or bee square!

To mark the occasion, Downtown Sacramento Partnership hired Honey Agency to develop a new logo and branding. Our research phase began with a photoshoot at Cesar Chavez Plaza, the home of CIP, where we were heavily inspired by the surrounding buildings. The main logo features some of the signature Sacramento skyline, but is stylized to suggest the vibrant movement and unique music scene within. Ultimately, we decided that a single logo couldn't convey all of the facets of CIP, and so we developed a system of interchangeable secondary logos that could evolve over time. To augment these logos, we created a system of custom icons that further tell the story of the park and that speak to the diversity of music genres featured at CIP. The finishing touch was the development of a new mascot–a squirrel named Chip, who comes with adorable genre-specific outfits and instruments and several secondary marks for various uses. With so much detail in the brand elements we stuck to a high-energy but very limited color palette (pink, black and white). It was an immensely exciting project to work on and to see come together. We were thrilled to work with DSP as they fully trusted us in developing a kick-ass brand. Did we mention they let us make a pink logo? Catch all the details and the 2016 line-up over at GoDowntownSac.com. Cheers to CIP and another 25 years of turning up the volume!

If you don't count the months we set up shop in my then boyfriend's spare room many moons ago, this is our third legit space. A year before our lease was to expire on our East Sacramento office we knew we were ready to step up our game. On our wish list: lively neighborhood, safe at night, high ceilings, architectural character lots and lots of light. We enlisted Kris Kalmbach of Cushman & Wakefield, a guy in the know, to help us on our search. When he showed us the flyer for a space opening in midtown's MARRS building it was a game changer. It hit every check box on our list (hello, lively neighborhood!) and the timing of its availability was perfect.

The Before

DSC00883 DSC00885-Edit Originally part of a much larger office, the suite was being leased by a commercial real estate company who was maximizing the space with cubicles and traditional office furnishings. Overall the finishes were yellow or brown in tone and we really wanted (needed) the space to feel lighter, brighter and more colorful. With only one private office in our suite, we also needed to figure out how to make an open floorplan work for our team, carve out a reception area and bring in some unique, Honey-fied elements. But those windows! The ceilings! [caption id="attachment_3980" align="aligncenter" width="850"]_DSC4121 View from entrance[/caption] [caption id="attachment_3979" align="aligncenter" width="850"]_DSC4115 View from conference room[/caption] Interior design is one of my passions and this became a (literal) labor of love project while on maternity leave in early 2015. To help with space planning and material selection the awesome ladies at LJ2 Interiors were a dream to work with. Jayme figured out a way to tweak the flooring to help the flow, drew an electrical plan so we could update lighting and plug in our Macs, and laid out all of the furniture into 3 unique spaces. The floor turned out to be our largest expense and ultimately made a huge impact. Originally the flooring was broken up into 2 surfaces that didn't work with our plan so we swapped out the woven substrate with a durable LVT,  and brought it into the lounge and kitchen. The material has the warm look of wood but super durable for commercial use and the cooler gray tone echoes the concrete walls.

The After

Entrance/Lounge FrontDesk-8324 We really like to make an entrance so creating a spot to greet our guests was important. This powder coated hot pink tank desk has actually been with us for years. We scored it as-is at a used office furniture warehouse. We rescued it from underneath a pile of chairs and knew it was meant to be. honey-8271 The lounge, our favorite corner of the office, is created with a wall of freestanding closets who's unfinished backs were disguised with panels hand-painted by our super talented friend Jeremy Stanger of Stanger Projects. You have to see them up close to get the full effect but each line is drawn with metallic paint. The soft seating is vintage french provincial that was actually in my grandmother's home in the 1950's and into my early childhood. My aunt had been storing them for decades and was just about to finally dump them when I realized we could use them. They were once upholstered grandma-style with clear plastic vinyl (I remember legs sticking to them as a kid) and had since become cat-scratching posts in their years of storage. They were looking rough but had good bones, and I'm so happy to have them restored with fresh stuffing, cushions and bold fabrics. We had the wood frames stripped and refinished with a gray stain to tone down that red mahogany look. Here they are patiently awaiting their makeover at the upholsterer's shop: IMG_8458 IMG_8461-2 honey-8272 frontcounter honey-8259 honey-8432 The Work Area The main heart of our space is where all the work happens. In typical creative company fashion we have a hub of desks that allows us to interact frequently and closely collaborate. team [caption id="attachment_4002" align="aligncenter" width="850"]honey-8424 Chalk mural by our Art Director Grady![/caption] Mini 'offices' were built out of shelving systems for Meghan and I to have quiet corners to work, make calls and have small meetings. In reality we're often found at someone else's desk if we see a vacant chair. We love the energy we get from our team and tap into it as much as we can. office-8357 Overhauling the carpet wasn't in our budget but adding color pops, lighting and accessories draws the eye up and it just reads as a neutral. Stringing café lights throughout brings the open ceiling down a bit, and warms up the space's industrial bones. An added bonus are the lovely bokeh reflections we get from the various shiny surfaces–it makes me happy every time I see them. honey-8427 The Conference Room The conference room is at the far end of the space, but it set the tone for the whole design. With glass window panels, the back wall is visible from the main entrance and we wanted it to be a show piece. When I can I like to cobble together Photoshop mockups to help me visualize and test different decisions. This one came out pretty close!Conference-Room_150316 conferenceRoomHoriz-8396 We frosted 3/4 of the glass panels to add privacy but still allow the natural light through and kept the rest of the furnishings neutral. honey-8381 We knew right away we wanted that wall to be a main feature and focal point so once again Stanger Projects brought our vision to life. Photos don't do it justice but each of those flowers are hand painted and the leaves are metallic gold and pewter. The herringbone conference table was constructed by a local craftsman from reclaimed wood and is perfect for team and client meetings. We like that it brings in a bit of rustic to balance out the florals on the wall. OverheadConferenceroom_MG_8416-final And that my friends, is Honey Agency 3.0. Its really been the most fulfilling project to see from start to finish and truly feels like us. We are completely in love with the colorful neighborhood, and I for one, feel inspiration and joy when I walk through the doors each day.

Conference table: Nick Fox Conference room light fixture: custom by Starlight Lighting Andrew Turner Construction (our neighbors in our old building) did the heavy lifting installing flooring, paint and electrical so our Macs and fancy new lighting would turn on. We love the ladies at LJ2 Interiors for all their expertise with the space planning, and finish selections .

Making sure our team is happy and productive, processes eternally need improvement, clients need what they need and the business has goals to meet. BUT, sometimes you need to lift your head up from the daily stress and take a minute. Take a minute to be proud of yourself and celebrate the accomplishments big and small. "Small stuff"  like meeting a deadline and making a client happy, or the biggies like living our dream jobs and making payroll for a team of amazing people. [caption id="attachment_3903" align="aligncenter" width="800"]40721_10150094998555968_466289_n Here we are in 2010 celebrating our first official office space on K Street. This is when we took our first big risk as a company and learned the meaning of the word overhead. We started paying rent, hired our first employees and because of that investment, our business grew. And grew.[/caption] We often joke that we are married, because we are legally bonded, share finances and Honey Do's like spouses. Really we're more like sister wives in a polygamist relationship with our business. We each have our own roles, responsibilities and share the burden of keeping our house and family together. But through it all, we are friends and laughter has gotten us through the best and the worst times. As most of you know, we moved into our third office this spring. We are back in midtown in the MARRS Building and it not only feels like home, but it feels like us. A couple months ago we hired the talented Michelle Drewes to capture the space and also get fresh photos of Meghan and I. We can't wait to give you a tour around the hive (coming soon!) but for now, here is a peek at the Queen Bees.

The Farm-to-Fork Gala Dinner is a celebration and fundraising event that literally bridges the farming lands of Yolo County with Sacramento's diverse culinary scene. As America's Farm-to-Fork Capital, 'farm-to-fork is more then a catch phrase, it is a movement of civic pride for Sacramento. One of our favorite projects this year, we have all been fully immersed in this brand and are so pumped to see the region we love get recognized for the quality and abundance of its local food supply. We're not trying to rub it in (#humblebrag), but the night couldn't have been more perfect. The food and service were top notch, even with the logistical challenge of an outdoor event (on a bridge at that!). The weather was excellent and the California sunset decided to show off, lighting up the golden bridge in a beautiful pink glow. _DSC9695 _DSC9702 _DSC9774 _DSC9651 _DSC9752 _DSC9754 _DSC9723 _DSC9690 _DSC9716 _DSC9696 _DSC9786 [post_date] => 2015-10-06 15:20:08 [post_excerpt] => [post_parent] => 0 [post_status] => publish [post_title] => Party on the bridge [post_type] => post [slug] => party-on-the-bridge [__type:protected] => [_thumbnail_id] => 5215 [is_this_post_a_press_item] => 0 [_is_this_post_a_press_item] => field_57d194812eaa9 [_oembed_34131efb9573f9c8efea2531d41f193c] => [_oembed_time_34131efb9573f9c8efea2531d41f193c] => 1481744905 [ha_post_views_count] => 734 [_wpt_short_url] => https://workbyhoney.com/party-on-the-bridge/ [post_date_gmt] => 2015-10-06 22:20:08 [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => party-on-the-bridge [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2015-10-06 15:20:08 [post_modified_gmt] => 2015-10-06 22:20:08 [post_content_filtered] => [guid] => http://workbyhoney.com/?p=3831 [menu_order] => 0 [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [status] => publish [image] => )

GO GIANTS! We work hard, so once and a while it's fun to celebrate our accomplishments and get out of the office for some team bonding. The first leg of our day consisted of a tour of the Comcast Sportsnet studio. We learned the ins and outs of the sportcasting biz and were able to geek out on set. After our tour we headed to the Giants game, where we enjoyed amazing seats and a great game!

We moved back to midtown after a 3 year stint in East Sac and are loving the energy here. There are so many great restaurants in the blocks surrounding us; most days you’ll find one of us at Azul or Lowbrau, but everyone has their own favorite. We were up and running April 1, but there is nothing like throwing a party to get the finishing touches completed. We are so lucky to have wonderful clients and friends who believe in what we do, and it was time to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished together. We could not have done it without the help of Etch and Ivy, who handled the event design and installation. They took our ideas, added in unique elements (see the hanging rose wall!), and created a perfect casual but pretty event for us. Thanks to all the vendors who made the night possible! Cheers to Food Literacy Center, Azul Mexican Food & Tequila Bar, LowBrau Beirhall, and Cookie Connection for the delicious small bites throughout the night! Anson Design Company and Botanica Floral & Event Design provided the planters and floral design,  AJF Salon glammed up our team beforehand, DJ Alex Trujillo laid down the sweet vinyl jams, Giggle & Riot Funbooths captured hundreds of  amazing hilarious gifs of our guests and @caliallstaring  took the beautiful photos pictured below.

Knowledge is power, and Food Literacy Center has made their focus exactly that—to inspire change for a healthier tomorrow! A FREE t-shirt even awaits you at the bottom of this blog post, how cool is that!?! FLCBLOG11 The organization was founded by Amber Stott in 2011, and has continued to grow, evolve, and gain momentum. Honey Agency has devoted and donated our creative and marketing strategy to rebrand, which included new name, logo, marketing collateral and development of a brand guide. Check it out here. Honey Agency believes wholeheartedly in Food Literacy Center’s mission and purpose, so we were thrilled when founder Amber Stott agreed to collaborate with us on an “In Real Life” piece so we could see first-hand what the organization does on a day-to-day basis—empowering the youth with education on nutrition and inspiring them to eat fresh fruits and produce. I met up with Amber, Elaine (registered Food Literacy Genius), and a team of four Food Literati volunteers. Elaine led the team at this particular South Sac Elementary School, where the volunteers prepared the lesson and menu. Each Food Literacy lesson includes common core teaching standards, so the children are not only learning and changing their behavior towards healthy fruits and vegetables, but also practicing a variety of other essentials such as math, science, and english. FLCBLOG1 There were about 160 after-school children in the program when I visited. The children were grouped by grade (K-5th) and cycled in accordingly. I participated in the 5th grade group, where over 40 kids shuffled in to have some fun with the Food Literacy Center team. FLCBLOG2 As soon as the children were seated, the Food Literacy Center team got to work. They started off by introducing themselves, then posing some questions: Do you know what Food Literacy means? I was surprised at how many children were active in answering, and eager to learn more. Many of the children at this particular school had been through the program before, and their excitement was palpable. FLCBLOG4 The real fun began with a recipe which included yellow and purple endives, shredded carrots, goat cheese, and dried apricots. The volunteers passed each ingredient out one by one, and encouraged the children to pronounce and explain what was in front of them. It was wonderful to watch as the kids explored the ingredients with their 5 senses, discussing them with each other. I was thrilled to see them tasting and pointing out what they liked and didn’t like about the snack. FLCBLOG5 FLCBLOG3 FLCBLOG7 After their delicious new snack, they were given crayons and paper with different vegetables to choose from and draw. I loved watching the children express themselves creatively! The lesson was a perfect combination of exploring and learning new things alongside creative expression. FLCBLOG9 The most incredible part of the entire experience was witnessing how many of the children were truly interested in what they were learning. It was an amazing thing to watch as Food Literacy Center really tapped into the ever-evolving minds of the children. You could actually watch as their behavior towards new foods changed and morphed into positive reactions. I left the school with a full heart, knowing that something so positive and incredible is happening in the school system. These kids were actually eager to learn about fruits and vegetables, it’s almost hard to believe without seeing it first hand, and I'm grateful that Food Literacy Center invited me along. FLCBLOG8 As the farm-to-fork capitol of California, I cannot stress enough how important this program is for not only Sacramento but schools and children across the state. I hope you head over to Food Literacy Center and DONATE or become a member of the Food Literati to help keep this incredible program thriving and growing. If you donate $20 by the end of September, you will receive a free Food Literati tee-shirt. They also have several other options to choose from in regards to membership packages, so head on over and check it out.     [post_date] => 2014-09-24 17:06:16 [post_excerpt] => [post_parent] => 0 [post_status] => publish [post_title] => IRL with Food Literacy Center [post_type] => post [slug] => irl-food-literacy-center [__type:protected] => [_wpaa_fallback_page] => 49 [_yoast_wpseo_focuskw] => Food Literacy Center [_yoast_wpseo_linkdex] => 85 [_thumbnail_id] => 5260 [_yoast_wpseo_metadesc] => Food Literacy Center is a non-profit organization located in Sac, dedicated to helping school-aged children create positive changes with food education [_wp_old_slug] => real-life-food-literacy-center [is_this_post_a_press_item] => 0 [_is_this_post_a_press_item] => field_57d194812eaa9 [_oembed_34131efb9573f9c8efea2531d41f193c] => [_oembed_time_34131efb9573f9c8efea2531d41f193c] => 1477180392 [ha_post_views_count] => 937 [post_date_gmt] => 2014-09-25 00:06:16 [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => irl-food-literacy-center [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2014-09-24 17:06:16 [post_modified_gmt] => 2014-09-25 00:06:16 [post_content_filtered] => [guid] => http://workbyhoney.com/?p=3424 [menu_order] => 0 [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [status] => publish [image] => )
