Lightning strikes can happen at the least likely moments - what does it take for a lightning strike? Charged particles collide and create a spark - and boom.

Inspired by a long weekend at Summit at Sea, I couldn’t sit still anymore.

Over the years we had worked for competitors at times, sometimes even pitching on the same business for different agencies.

Can Coffee Shops Spur Brilliant Ideas? We Think So.

Our agency started in a coffee shop. And to this day we keep the tradition alive by giving our employees the morning to work remotely in their favorite coffee shop or hipster locale. After all, where better than in the midst of people can we craft and create great ideas — not to mention, lasting connections. Here are our favorite spots that inspire greatness: MILWAUKEE

1. Alterra on The Lake (a converted water pumping station that boasts oversized antiques stuck in time and a giant pit full of pump equipment)

2. Stone Creek Factory Cafe (a stone's throw away and full of the best baristas we've ever met)

3. Anodyne  (We're in love with their new Walker's Point Roastery.)
