Eugene Splashes for Inaugural Komen Race for the Cure

Posted & filed under Advertising, Community, Life.

With some 7,000 participants, the inaugural Eugene Race for the Cure on Oct. 10 was the most successful first-time event in Susan G. Komen history. And almost everyone who registered showed up to walk or run on the first rain-drenched day of the season. Komen Oregon also made history as the first statewide affiliate to host two races.

As the Race’s marketing and communications partner, CAWOOD donated 1,000 hours of service as Komen Oregon’s creative consultants, developing striking images and concise […]

Wearing a Pink Shirt

Posted & filed under Life, Office, Web.

I’m a pretty open-minded fellow. Extremely open-minded, I might say. I’ve studied countless philosophies, ideas, theories and religions and respect them all (well, most of them). And I’ve enjoyed a wide range of experiences. I’ve delivered pizza late at night in scary neighborhoods, and dined with millionaires in Manhattan. I’ve played a trombone in dive bars while wearing a dress, and been dragged around downtown in a gimp outfit. I’ve eaten all kinds of foods, read all […]

Posted & filed under Advertising, Life.

The invasion of the Travoys

Posted & filed under Life, Work.

How fun to work with the energetic folks at Burley Design. For years, they offered child, pet and utility trailers.

“My new Travoy is the perfect bike trailer for all kinds of trips I do, but especially for commuting to work and meetings. […]

How to change things when change is hard

Posted & filed under Community, Life.

CAWOOD embraces change. We truly believe that small change adds up.

They suggest that […]
