This #TBT we’re looking back to our first official WALO client, Bonton Farms. From the minute we met them, we truly believed in the work they were doing, so we partnered with them to help build their brand. At a time when community support in Dallas is more crucial than ever, we want to once again shine a light on Bonton Farms. Not only do they provide accessible fresh food to a neighborhood that was once considered a food desert, but they work to help restore the lives of those around them through health mentorships, jobs and much more. Show your support today by making your next grocery haul through BontonFarms.org, placing a to-go order at their café or donating to help them grow hope through agriculture.

As a country and as individuals, we all have so much to learn and unlearn about the systems of oppression within our society. We’ve compiled a collection of organizations, activists and leaders that are working to educate the public on the injustices that members of our communities are faced with daily. We urge all of our followers, friends and family to join us on this mission to become more knowledgeable and responsible allies. This is the essential first step in the process of fighting for true equality.

Memorial Day serves as a strong reminder that the men and women of the United States Military put their lives on the line daily to protect our country and our freedoms. Today, we honor the servicemembers who have lost their lives and their families.

Nothing like a little friendly competition to start off hump day! A couple of weeks ago, the WALO creative team challenged our accounts team to a logo design contest to show them what being a designer is all about. The client was tough, the brief was minimal and the timeline non-existent, but our account managers pulled it off! Check it out and see who you think had the best logo. We might have some new hybrid creatives, huh?

With Mother’s Day being a little different this year, some of the WALO fam decided to forgo the usual Hallmark card and go for something a little more… Permanent. Just kidding, moms. It’s Photoshop. Please don’t disown us. Happy Mother’s Day!

Quarantine has us finding even the smallest reasons to celebrate, like for instance, today, National Packaging Design Day. Luckily, we have just the thing to celebrate! Check out this bayou-inspired packaging we created for Frenchy’s line of frozen gumbo and etouffee bases! They look as good as they taste!

Nothing is more important than the well-being of our fellow humans. That is why we have decided to keep our physical office closed and continue to work remotely until data tells us it is safe to return. While we are looking forward to getting back to the office and seeing everyone’s smiling faces again, WALO has been forward-thinking since its inception, which fortunately allows us to continue performing at our best while socially distanced. We care about you and yours and hope to see you soon. Until then, please continue to reach us via phone, email and video conferencing.

Guts. Soul. Play.

Love,
Your WALO fam

It’s Earth Day! So, what better way to celebrate than with WALO’s own in-house environmentalist, Nats, giving us some of her tips on simple, everyday things we can all do to help our planet? Remember, even small changes can make a big difference.

75 years ago, President Franklin D. Roosevelt commissioned an official Spanish version of the National Anthem, a version particularly relevant today representing Hispanic Americans. As US Hispanics are disproportionately affected by #COVID19, let’s take action together to support recovery. #HispanicStar #WeAreAllHuman www.hispanicstar.org

Happy Easter to all of our friends and family! While we can’t have cascarón fights today, we still wanted to have some fun. So, we’ve decided to throw the first ever WALO Digital Easter Egg Hunt. Here’s the deal: we’ve hidden three WALO Easter eggs across our Facebook and Instagram pages. The first three people to find them all and message us on Instagram with their locations win an Uber Eats gift card to make sheltering in place a little tastier – must be following us on Instagram to win. Now, we don’t want to send you on a wild egg chase, so we’ve decided to give you a few clues to help out.

1. Facebook has you covered with this egg.
2. This Insta egg is keeping a low profile.
3. This egg is keeping it peaceful over on.

Hop to it and find those eggs. Good luck!

Whether they’re savory or sweet, meat-filled or veggie-packed, a secret family recipe or an internet find – few things in the world beat a fresh empanada! To celebrate National Empanada Day, Ricky and Taylor decided to try their hands at making their very own. Does anyone else wish you could taste a picture? Wow.

Wrapping up our #WomenofWALO series, we’d like to introduce our Account Service powerhouse, Karen! Karen has been a game changer ever since she stepped foot into the WALO world. She is a go-getter in the ad world who started out on the client side and has since impacted brands such as Samsung, Heineken, HP and FedEx. Karen’s a natural leader with an efficiency-driven mind bent towards meeting client needs. We’re so blessed to have this great female role model on the WALO team.

The next featured lady in our #WomenOfWALO series is the lovely Leslie, our Producer Extraordinaire. The WALO team admires Leslie for so many reasons, one of which is the joy and enthusiasm she brings to every project she works on. It’s clear from working with her that she loves producing and collaborating with other creatives. Not only does she love what she does, but she’s damn good at it too. Leslie has won Tellys, ADDYs, Best of Show, Crystal, Promax and Summit Awards, and she sees Clios and Cannes Lions in her future. Thank you, Leslie, for all that you do!

Next up in our #WomenOfWALO series is Taylor, our Senior Designer and Illustrator who has helped our agency win five AAF Dallas Addys and two Silver District Addys over the past three years. Not only does she help lead our team to victory, but she also uses her creativity to contribute to the greater good. Recently, Taylor worked on an all-female team to create a short film in 78 hours for the #WomensWeekendFilmChallenge, a challenge that unites and empowers female creative professionals. Her talent, passion and drive to create meaningful work are just a few of the many ways she inspires the WALO team.

As one of 50 recipients of AAF’s 2018 Most Promising Multicultural Student Awards, it was clear that Kristy was on track to do amazing things, and from the moment she walked in our office, we knew that we wanted her quick wit, shining personality and strategic mind on the WALO family. Little did we know just how much GUTS, SOUL and PLAY she would truly bring to everything she does. We are so thankful and lucky to have Kristy as teammate, Junior Account Manager and Strategist, and member of the #WomenOfWALO.

Yuno is a man of many talents and few words, so when he told us he wanted to post about his birthday a day late, we listened – and wow, he knocked it out of the park. We are so incredibly thankful for all of the hard work and creativity you bring to the WALO family. Happy belated birthday, Yuno. We hope you had an amazing day full of fun, love and plenty of social distancing.

Ingrid is a true Lady Boss and the next featured woman in our #WomenOfWALO series. Ingrid’s career in advertising is diverse; from working behind the scenes as a photography director in Colombia to now working as a project manager and billing coordinator, her unique experiences and background help her elevate each project she works on. Not only is her work incredible, but she is someone who always offers help to others and brightens every room she walks into. WALO is so thankful to have her on our team.

Up next in our #WomenOfWALO series is our Junior Account Manager, Lisa! In 2019, Lisa competed with other TCU advertising students in the AAF’s National Student Advertising Competition, where her team won third place in their district and she took home the AAF Special Judges Award for Best Presenter! In her short time with WALO, we have been immeasurably impressed with her work ethic, insightfulness and drive. We are so thankful to have her as part of the WALO family and can’t wait to see where her GUTS, SOUL, PLAY mentality takes her!

To kick off the #WomenOfWALO series, we’re highlighting the one and only Nats! In 2018, AAF Dallas recognized her with a Shining Star Award for her work in the community and in advertising, and since then she has continued to show the world what it means to work with GUTS, SOUL and PLAY! Whether it’s organizing the team’s recycling efforts or putting on a fundraising event for the victims of the El Paso shooting, we are so proud to have someone as caring, driven and inspiring as Nats in the WALO family.

The #WomenOfWALO are an extraordinary group of thinkers and doers who continue to show the world what it truly means to work with GUTS, SOUL and PLAY. Whether it’s crushing it in client meetings or creating jaw-dropping creative, we are constantly reminded just how badass they are and how lucky we are to have them here. Stay tuned all month long as we continue highlighting their successes, and join us in celebrating their achievements!

We know it’s Employee Appreciation Day, but Family Appreciation Day feels more fitting because this is the WALO family (the ones in Dallas, at least)! We say that because they’re more than just a team and way more than just employees. Each person in this photo brings their own brand of GUTS, SOUL and PLAY into what we do and without them, WALO wouldn’t be what it is today. We are beyond thankful for their hard work, creativity and drive, and we can’t wait to see where we’re headed! And to the many other WALOians not pictured, we appreciate everything you do from afar to make WALO so amazing. Thank you, everyone!

We believe that PLAY is the catalyst for change, and these individuals truly changed the world. Whether it was in the ring, on the court, or on the field, these individuals used their gifts and their passions to create something bigger than themselves. Happy Black History Month.
