Is it just us, or does it feel like Christmas was a really REALLY long time ago? We can’t believe it’s been a month since our office Christmas party, so before Spring sets in and we forget about it completely, we thought we’d share some pictures from the evening.
Our not-so-secret prohibition night had period costumes, great food and drink, and black jack – because what’s a prohibition party without gambling? Massive thanks to Feys+Hobbs for creating the delicious eats, and to our amazing bartender Brandon Brewster for mixing the inspired throwback cocktails.
Here is the link to the photo album, complete with feather boas, flapper dresses, and tommy guns – straight out of the roaring ’20s!
We’d like to thank all our clients and friends who attended our 2011 MadMen themed Christmas party last Thursday, December 8th. The night was filled with phenomenal food, amazing photos, wonderful costumes and epic stories (many that we can’t disclose online). Although there were many notable costumes, there can only be few winners. Our top voted costumes for the eve were (in no particular order):
Mandy Farmer, Accent Inns
Trina Mousseau, Tourism Victoria
Don Main, Elections BC
(Thanks for coming out in full force. Prize packs will be delivered to you!)
A very special thanks to the ever-so-talented Derek Ford for providing his photography services (and promptly leaving with his camera just before things really got interesting) and David Feys and the crew at Feys+Hobbs Catered Arts for providing the phenomenal service and delicious food for the evening. Also special thank yous are due to Sean Goode (our super volunteer resident bell boy who greeted you at the door) and Garside Displays for all their hard work completing our MadMen signage needs under the wire!
Now, onto the photo reel. (more…)
Today marks the launch of Victoria’s 2011 Rifflandia music festival, and since everyone in our office has their wristbands ready to go (clandestinely tucked under our professional blazers), we thought it only appropriate to write about it.
Rifflandia 2011 is 4 days, 110 artists, and 9 stages. That’s a lot to get excited about! We wanted to check out how their identity has evolved over the years and (more…)

This week we celebrated Kristine’s upcoming B-day, (no, not HER birthday, but her Baby’s birth day). As a tribute to her last week with the agency, we mocked up Kristine on the cover of her favourite business read, Marketing Mag.
We were all surprised last summer to find out Kristine was an expecting mother-to-be. Can someone carry a baby in four inch heels we wondered? As the months passed and we watched Kristine glow and grow, it became evident that she is definitely ready to project manage a new challenge. Her positive attitude and energy is (more…)
With all the buzz surrounding the upcoming TC10K this week, we thought it was a perfect opportunity for Eclipse to once again take part in something wonderful in the community. We officially can declare 100% office participation for this year’s Times Colonist 10K Run in support of The Heart and Stroke Foundation!
(From the TC10K Website) In 2010, the Heart and Stroke Foundation will celebrate its 15th anniversary as the Exclusive Pledge Charity for the TC10K. Please help us make this the most successful year ever! Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both women and men in BC, but regular physical activity is an important part of preventing heart attack and stroke. In fact, positive lifestyle changes can reduce your risk by up to 80%.
We’ll be counting down the days to the TC10K on Facebook and Twitter. To learn more about the TC10K and participate, click here.
See you on Dallas Road, Sunday, April 25th, 2010.
As the mo-movement month of Movember comes to a close, Eclipse would like to thank all our mo-supporters who made generous donations to help us fight men’s prostate cancer! Because of your contributions we were able to raise a quick $865.00 in cold hard cash towards this great cause.
Feel free to check out our fun little youtube video below to watch each of our guy’s mustache progression throughout the month.
Thanks again for your support, we can now retire our mustaches for at least another 11 months. To learn more about movember, click here.
