Many businesses weather extremes, but perhaps none as extremely jarring as those encountered in the creative industry. See how the Estipona Group tackles dichotomies like being together yet separate, virtual but real, and sweary yet all about the good deeds.

After having worked on an estimated 600-ish jobs together, you’d think these two would be tired of one another. But instead, they just finish each other’s sentences, laugh a lot and contemplate weighty things like exactly when Hammertime and parachute pants were a thing.

VP of Strategy Mikalee Byerman weighs in on the IHOP kerfuffle, lamenting what she calls the clickbait-and-switch:

When we started our 25th-of-the-month tradition this year called “EG Rewind” — celebrating the people, places and things that have helped us achieve 25 years in business — we knew the focus would mostly be on the people.
Carol Quinn, retired art educator for the Washoe County School District, is pretty much THE reason Estipona Group is now celebrating 25 years.
It was her simple suggestion — “Take a graphic design course. It should be an easy A!”— that ultimately led Edward down the path toward a career in design, and eventually, opening his own agency.
For those who say teaching is a superpower, meet Carol Quinn: Educator, friend, foundation-layer for 25 years of Estipona Group success — and superhero extraordinaire.
Q: What food makes you gag, and why?
A: I’m a pretty picky eater, but my top three no-no’s are: eggs, mushrooms, eggplant (insert eggplant emoji joke here).
Which one of these things is NOT like the others?
a.) A little black dress
b.) Feathered bangs held in place by an entire can of AquaNet
c.) A well-tailored navy blazer
You said “Mail,” right? Gotcha! Because sure, those other items loosely have something to do with fashion — but come on, feathered hair? Definitely not something we’d call “classic.”
The rest — an LBD, navy blazer and mail — these are all standards. And they’re here to stay.
