At Opus, we call our employee of the month award the “SUPO.” It’s kind of a long story, but essentially: it’s “OPUS” spelled backwards, and it sounds a little like “super.” This month’s SUPO is…

From The Blog
The entire nation is in the grip of a Pokémon craze! We too have felt the draw to far corners of the city (or the office) to catch those little critters.
To help you on your path to building a formidable Pokémon army, we’ve put together a few pro tips for the other trainers out there. Gotta read ’em all!
Opus Agency COO Dena Lowery presented not once but twice at this year’s Corporate Events Marketing Association (CEMA) Summit, an annual gathering of the leading voices and thinkers in events marketing. Fresh on the heels of a Monday breakout session—co-presenting with Workiva’s Director of Global Events, Diana Cam, on best practices and growing pains for mid-sized, fast-growing companies—Lowery also presented her thoughts on building effective teams earlier today.
What is experience design? What does it have the power to do when you get it right? What can go wrong when you don’t? Earlier this year, Opus assembled a who’s who of industry experts to help define this esoteric yet essential topic.
Opus is a full-service marketing agency. As such, we consider each and every member of the Opus team to have a direct hand in marketing. Every point of contact with customers, prospects, and partners presents an opportunity to further our brand. We take pride in the quantity and quality of our communication—no matter the medium—which makes it even more important for our writing to be strong and free of errors. To that end, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes” with the aim of raising the bar of the written word across the entire agency. Our notes should provide utility to everyone, whether you’re a fledgling scribbler or a confirmed word nerd.
This month we differentiate between and among, make ending sentences with prepositions something to be okay with, and set the standard for nonstandard words.
In the spirit of our weekly grammar notes, the resident tech experts on our Event Technology team send out periodic updates on current trends in the tech world and their impact on the industry. This week, we look at the difference between RFID and NFC protocols, as well as a bonus look at Bluetooth Low Energy.
Last night, Opus was honored for the fourth year in a row as one of the 100 fastest-growing private companies in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Beaverton, OR – June 8, 2016 – Highlighting the growing importance of content strategy to our customers’ success, Opus is pleased to announce the addition of Dana Larson in the new role of Vice President of Content Strategy.
Building a brand depends on every point of contact that each employee has with customers, prospects, and partners. And despite being experts within respective disciplines, everyone is still occasionally bedeviled by a common high school nemesis: GRAMMAR! To help with the challenge, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes,” addressing misspellings, misuses, and misnomers in everyday communication. This quickly became the source of much dialogue around the proverbial water cooler, so we decided to make it a recurring feature on our blog. We hope you find it as useful as we do!
This month we were nauseated by nauseous mixups, mustered some mnemonics for maddening misspellings, and did some wishful thinking about the subjunctive mood.
An event, no matter the size, will never get off the ground without an effective registration process. Getting people interested is one thing—getting them signed up and squared away for attendance is the real trick.
