Actually, we’re not just KEEN for Christmas, we’re KEEN from this point on! That’s right, the folks you once knew as Pure Vision Inc. are now KEEN Creative.
There is a ton of information on why we changed our name and how you can expect the same great awesomeness moving forward, but right now we want to talk about Christmas! It’s less than 10 days away, and there’s a reason we chose to launch our rebrand now. Cause we are gaga for the holidays!!
The holidays for us are about spending time with those close to you. And some of our favourite people are one another and our clients. We have worked hard to create an environment of fun, cheer and mutual respect, empowering each person to be the best version of themselves they can be. And we love coming to work everyday, no lie!
This holiday season, we celebrated as a team with dinner, a casino games night and a dance off. Yes, that’s right a dance off! There were some epic moves and it was a blast for all involved, with the festivities lasting until the early morning the next day.
Of course, our dance off may have been fuelled by a marginal amount of alcohol, but it was for a good cause! We promise! We had a toonie bar at our party, and all the funds were donated to the Strathcona Food Bank. We raised $500! It’s all part of our newly coined “Acts of KEENness,” which are our way of giving back and bolstering our community. This December, we’ve also donated to Goodwill, and in the past, as Pure Vision, we’ve donated time, talent, product, and funds to various groups and charities, such as Inclusion Alberta, Give a Shirt, and CADS Edmonton.
But because we’re excessively festive, that’s not all we’re doing tocelebrate the season! We got together to get ourselves an office Lego advent calendar that we have been religiously opening each day. Check our Instagram to see all the fun toys we’ve opened! We are also having a gingerbread house competition and we will be taking the week in between Christmas and New Years off to rest and regroup for an exciting 2016.
We are also celebrating individually as well, with some of our staff taking some vacation (Nicole, NYC!), some decorating their first Christmas tree in their new home (Amy!) and some getting their first fur baby (Nathan & Nic!). It has been a busy year, so we know that each keener will cherish the quality time spent with loved ones and look back at the amazing 2015 we took on as a team.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you and your family. And thank you for being a part of our 2015.
We look forward to working with you in 2016!
Any crazy office Christmas parties? Are you feeling KEEN for 2016!?
