No better time than now to get into the underground music platform game with a viable strategy. Hopefully someone will keep #Soundcloud alive! COG1 has been a fan since day 1.

Cog1: What We're Reading
"Positioning" by Al Ries & Jack Trout
Our society is overcommunicated. On a daily basis we are bombarded with media from every angle. “Positioning” gives us a revolutionary approach to finding a marketable position within the overcrowded marketplace. It’s a quick and witty read and we’ve gained a great deal of insight from the authors. Highly recommended!

We haven't seen an attack on major public sites like this in a while. Curious how many other sites were targeted that withheld the attack because of their strong security. This is an interesting event if you're a tech enthusiast, and may only just be the beginning of a wave of attacks, according to the news.
Was your site or service effected?
Major websites have gone down worldwide --- The reason is still unclear but a major DNS provider is suffering a massive DDoS attack and experts are connect

10 years ago today, this guy walked into the office looking for an internship in the digital media industry. A lot has changed since then, but through it all Matt Allard has been the rock solid presence we have grown to rely and depend on. None of us would be here today without him.
Take a moment to wish him a happy 10 year anniversary. We are proud to have him on the team.

While she’s been a part of the COG1 family for most of her life, it was a year ago today that she officially arrived on our doorstep ready to kick some ass. Eager to work hard for her money, she’s a talented go getter, wrangler of accounts, top communicator, and is the glue that keeps us working with some of the best companies in the industry. We love her. She is Melissa Bolin, Senior Account Director.
Happy 1 Year Anniversary, Melissa! Here’s to you!

Advertising Age is suggesting an entirely new paradigm when it comes to creative direction. We’re taking steps to ensure our own toolbox has evolved. Creative optimization in digital advertising is much more important than it ever was. What’s your take on their perspective?
In the future, marketing and creative direction will need to be much more tightly integrated, writes George Penston.
Calm, quiet, thoughtful spaces do exist in San Francisco. Occasionally our creative team members need to escape to put thoughts on paper.

The Blue Bath by Mary Waters-Sayer

From our talented team... Ryan Huntsinger, one of the art directors here at COG1, is an incredible designer who works tirelessly outside of work perfecting his craft.
This print is an homage to Roland's series of drum machines from the 1980s that helped influence the sound of electronic music. The intent is to focus on the physical design of the machines and how they function together as a unit. Printed digital, 24 x 36".
