Here at BIGfish, there’s rarely a day that isn’t jam-packed with time-sensitive projects and an abundance of client work, but the fall season is especially busy. Our holiday gift guide pitching is in full swing, we’re busy gearing up for CES (more on that here), and coordinating three Taste of Iceland events that happen around the country, among a variety of other projects for all of our clients. Because we’re so busy, we heavily rely on our PR and copywriting interns to help out with some important projects - building media lists, writing pitches (and sending them, too!), publishing articles on Iceland Naturally and assisting with social media - just to name a few.
There’s no denying that Boston has lots of delicious restaurants: Tavern Road, The Salty Pig and Bostonia Public House are a few of our personal faves, but on any given day, you’ll most likely find us at a local Brookline establishment grabbing lunch, celebrating a birthday or having a holiday party. Whatever the occasion, there’s always a delicious option right around the corner. We’ve highlighted a few of our favorites below:
While BIGfish’s current office space has been praised by Fast Company for its design, things didn’t start out that way. In fact, when the company was founded in 1999 by our fearless leader David Gerzof Richard, the space didn’t even have windows. But our upgraded, sunlit office isn’t the only mark of growth for this formerly one-man operation.
It's hard to believe that it's already the end of August; this summer has (sadly) flown by. Over the last several weeks, we've been wrapping things up with our two summer interns, Julia and Kelly. Julia, our PR intern, worked hard all summer long building media lists, contributing to the BIGfish Twitter account, tracking clients' press mentions and much more. Kelly, our crafty copywriter, wrote dozens of articles for client Iceland Naturally, blog posts for BIGfish and pitches. We're definitely going to miss having them around, but wish them the best of luck as they head back to school this fall.
If you’re visiting Boston, if you’re a college student, or if you’re a working professional in the area like the BIGfish team, you know you need your coffee. We’re called Beantown for the baked beans, but coffee beans are just as important to us Bostonians. While there’s nothing wrong with that pink and orange DD, or everyone’s favorite green mermaid, there’s an entire world of coffee shops out there to explore, and no reason to keep going to the same chains. Here in Boston, there are countless cute, quirky and delicious coffee shops and cafes for great drinks and food. Once you visit these spots, you’ll want to make them yours and yours only forever.
