USG Holiday Party 2012
USG had a great 2012, so it deserved a proper celebration! We had a great time at PNC Park.
What started as a basic Punchbowl invite ended up becoming a lot of different things: signage, name tags, food cards, and the pièce de résistance: The recipe book.
We needed a favor on a budget, so someone had the idea to put together a recipe book. We collected recipes from employees, assigned some recipes to those who didn’t provide, and put it all together.
It was my first project where I felt like a project manager! So, naturally it could have gone better. I anticipated the amount of work it would take to make one, but I grossly underestimated the time it’d take to make 75! I had two great interns working with me, and even though we ended up being an hour late to the party, we made it there in time for just about everyone to take one before they left.
This was a really rewarding project. As I’ve said, I love to make things, so it was neat to have a physical project with some heft to deliver, since most of my work at USG is either digital or no thicker than a booklet.
