A curated selection of what piqued our interest and attention during the month of February. From celebrating Super Bowl wins to talking lots of tech, this month was filled with highlights from Funkhaus east to Funkhaus west.

Yes, you read the date correctly. One blink and February ended—and what a month it was! Sports were the talk of the office the first portion of the month, with the Super Bowl kicking us off. Funkhaus Social Media Coordinator, Erin, also happens to be the office’s resident Eagles fan, which made their win that much sweeter. Whether you’re still high on the win or emerging from your hole of sadness because of the loss, this SNL skit is sure to make you smile.

From the moment you step foot in our LA office one thing is clear: we’ve got a thing for photography. A recent collection that’s captured our awe is Jonathan Higbee’s ongoing series “Coincidences,” which is a beautiful ode to both the city of New York and the serendipitous moments that happen all around us. See more here.

Our Ithaca office had a celebrated ribbon cutting ceremony officiated by Ithaca’s very own mayor. Mayor Svante Myrick has a pretty impressive backstory: elected at 24 years old, he is one of the youngest elected officials in America. Needless to say, we loved having him there to officially welcome our office into the Ithaca community.

Speaking of Ithaca, our tech team there is always astounding us with the innovative solutions they craft. Read about a Funkhaus tech creation, VuePress, and hear from programmer Sander as he shares his expertise on SVGs.

We recently crafted an intuitive and unique website for Community Films that got a few shoutouts and around the web. Check it here and here.

Last, but certainly not least, the Funkhaus LA office got to taste the famed Garbage Plate delicacy that hails from Rochester, New York thanks to the Garbage Truck food truck that posts up down the street from us. It was a meal we will certainly never forget.
