Year of the Ant?

Posted by Rob Lewis

Videographers extraordinaire Leah Nelson and Jay Grandin of Giant Ant Media have teamed up with Strategist Jess Sloss and are in the process of adding some new services to their menu. Their goal - a new kind of company that collapses the traditional ad agency model by doing creative and execution, paired with a great understanding of how to drive eyeballs to online content.

They've launched a new website to celebrate 2009 - the Year of the Ant? - and are inviting everyone to an Open House this Friday, January 30th from 3-6pm in their new Gastown digs.

Running late because you're enjoying Beer & Browsers with the Opera Software guys over at Bootup Labs. No worries. The Giant Ant army will be heading to Double Happiness Hour at The Greedy Pig from 6pm onward.
