Creepy Childhood Canadiana

By Katie Shapiro · July 1, 2016 In thinking about possible Canadiana-roundups in honour of this great nation of ours, a number of typical subjects surfaced. These included Canlit (#ReadTheNorth?), Kids in the Hall episodes, beer commercials blah, blah, blah. Soon we realized that as far as Canadian media was concerned we are a nation rich in truly HORRIFYING vids that have […]

Trending On Our Slack: Week 25

By Katie Shapiro · June 24, 2016 Another week, another peak into what goes on in our #nwr Slack channel (truly, a lot of it are GIFs. We can’t help ourselves.).

Trending on our Slack: Week 23 – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

By Katie Shapiro · June 11, 2016 Every week there are so many news stories, so many new favourite songs, and so many GIFs that are shared amongst the team that it can sometimes be hard to narrow down the ones to highlight in these very-official-and-very-important roundups. But, with a little inspiration, the Slack roundup choices were clear. The Good We welcomed […]

Trending On Our Slack: Week 21

By Katie Shapiro · May 27, 2016 It’s been a busy week at the office, but amidst the regular work hustle there have been a few highlights. It’s nice to take a moment at the end of the week to take stock of the fun before everything starts to blur together. So, forgive us for this slightly inward-looking edition of “Trending On Our Slack”, […]

Trending On Our Slack

By Katie Shapiro · May 6, 2016 Another week, another roundup of what happened in our Slack #nwr channel (that’s “not work related” for those of you who weren’t here last week)! 1.

Trending On Our Slack

By Katie Shapiro · April 29, 2016 We use the messaging app Slack at MediaStyle (we’ve already talked about it here), and while it’s predominantly used for work, we love to share inspiring industry-related things and fun-totally-unrelated-things every once in awhile in our SFW #nwr (safe for work, not work related) channel. We thought it would be fun to round up some […]

MPs Taking Flight on Twitter

By Katie Shapiro · March 21, 2016 Only 25 per cent of Canadians are on Twitter, but that ratio doesn’t carry over to our Members of Parliament. Over 90 per cent of Canadian MPs are on the social media site, busy communicating 140 characters at a time. Twitter can be useful to relay brief news updates and event information in their ridings, […]
