I know we’re in week two of 2017, however, this is a post I’ve been planning to write for the past few weeks and just haven’t had the time with all that’s been happening around here. Either way, here it goes:

At Made By Munsters, 2016 was perhaps the biggest year in the company’s history. We had the chance to grow our team, increase the number of projects we’ve worked on, and take on some new partnerships which have been extremely worthwhile. We’ve also had the chance to build our own product to help our team’s workflow, and hope it can help other teams too.

Our Team

In December, we brought in Melvin Graham to head up our business development. With the four of us prior to Melvin joining spending the majority of our time working on client projects, we needed someone who could focus solely on finding new partners and clients, and working on facilitating those relationships going into this year.

We plan to continue growing (and already have), but not to stretch ourselves too far and too quickly. We value each member’s contribution to our team, and want to ensure they’re taken care of.

Weekly Roundup

We built and launched Roundup, our missing communication tool. Roundup collects data from various project management sources and relays these updates to our clients via email and Slack once a week.

External Partnerships

Schlep

We’ve been working with Schlep since the last quarter of 2015, and continued to lead its design and development. In 2016, we redesigned the entire platform and launched a mobile application for both iOS and Android for some of its users.

Internet Brands

Having worked with Internet Brands for the past three years and with High Gear Media for two prior to that, we led a redesign of its main product in 2016 — The Car Connection. While the redesign is still in progress, the majority of the site’s new refresh has been implemented and in place currently.

ESPN

These are just a few of the ones we completed. We’re looking forward to our continued partnership with ESPN in 2017, and hope to be able to showcase much more work we do with them.

Venues & Vows

So, what’s next?
