    Bonobos B.V. has been selected as Bedrijf van de donderdag (Company of the day for this Thursday) by Radio 3FM Serious Radio on the Arbeidsvitaminen (literally translated; Labor Vitamin) show, and Patrick Noordhoff, our Creative Director, has also been voted boss of the day! He’s being described as someone who’s crap at math because he thinks that if his opinion is different from that of 4 others, that it’s still a 50/50 vote. Obviously the exposure from all this is nice an’ all, but that our company’s top 10 gets played is the real plus point here! My vote for John Mayer’s “Waiting on the world to change” will get played too, very cool.

    It’s been an insane 2 weeks! Since coming onboard with Bonobos, the amount of work has never pilled on as much as it has in the past 14 days.

    To start off with, I’ve lately inherited the responsibilities for everything to do with phonebook ads. Everything from their design to their final distribution and communication with the sales department. Besides creating SEO strong and beautiful websites, Bonobos also creates phonebook ads for its clients. Don’t laugh too hard, I chuckled a little too when I thought that there were still people out there who even own a phonebook. But despite the fact that it Is a diminishing market, it remains profitable to be a part of. Despite this, you wouldn’t believe how many badly designed phonebook ads are out there! I think it has a lot to do with companies designing their own ads in MS Paint rather than hiring on a professional design firm to get the most attention necessary out of an ad. Many of the ads cram too much uninteresting information into them and don’t get a clear message across, next to the fact that they’re just really ugly! Not that I care what other companies decide to do with their designs. It just makes my job that much easier, as long as the client doesn’t butt in too much. (more…)
