We are excited to announce the addition of Jean Greene and Shannon DePalma to our growing team! Although these ladies have been busy from the get-go, they were able to squeeze in a Q&A and tell me a bit about themselves and how they came to Brighton.
Cyber Monday has come and gone and my inbox (and wallet) are trying to recover. I have a love/hate relationship with this “holiday.” On one hand, what’s better than an amazing bargain from the comfort of your home? On the other hand, I have to resist temptation from the hundreds of promotional emails with “THE BEST SALE OF THE YEAR” that shout at me from my inbox.
If you spend just a few minutes on the Brighton Facebook page, it’s pretty clear Brightonians enjoy love food. We find any reason we can to bring in baked goods, buffalo chicken dip, chili, hot dogs- you name it. In fact, we already celebrated our own “Brightgiving” feast this week (yum!). read more
It’s said that people spend approximately 30 percent of their lives at work. That is a lot of time away spent from family and home. Luckily, many workplaces today don’t resemble the bland work environments of yesterday—particularly not Brighton. When we moved into our new space in January, we were greeted with bare walls ready to be personalized with homages to the industries we serve, photos of family and friends and interests we hold close to our hearts.
I recently discovered a website and phone app called IFTTT.com that has made a lot of what I do online and on my phone worlds easier. IFTTT stands for “if this then that.” If I have a headache, then I take Advil. If I am hungry, I head to the kitchen. If I am tagged in a photo on Facebook, send me a text message.
While my title may seem fairly straightforward — “proofreader” usually requires no explanation — my work can be quite complex at times. As a Brighton Agency proofreader, my job is very important. Not only do I proof for grammar, typographical and spelling errors, I also ensure that all copy is consistent with AP Style and that the proper legal and trademark symbols are included. In addition, each brand tends to have its own unique way of doing things and its own style guide.
