Our local newspaper, The Portland Press Herald, runs a weekly column called "A Word with the Boss," in which they interview local business leaders. In the October 17 edition, reporter Ed Murphy chats with Arielle about the definition of 'branding' and Might & Main's history, approach and process.
On a recent company trip to a Portland Sea Dogs game, one thing won us over—the player introductions. As every Seadog came to bat, a specific song came on to hype that player up. Immediately we started talking about how great it would be to implement that at the office—a song for each of us, every time we stepped up to the plate at Might & Main. And so, after much deliberation and some significant trial and error, we've landed on our ideal Might & Main theme songs.
"I want to have a dance party with you, Graeme."
"You can just come over any night."

In the middle of May, we got some great news: Might & Main had won Best of Show in HOW Magazine's 2013 Promotion & Marketing Design Awards. The project would be featured in a multi-page spread in September issue, but the good news didn't stop there: HOW wanted us to design the cover as well.
"There's almost nothing about this one I like."
"There are no hurt feelings in design."
"I know they're cargo shorts, and I only brought them for riding my bike, but I don't care—it's HOT!"
"You know I love moms so I'm going to be hanging out with your mom all night."
One of the best things about our old offices was the full range gas stove. Though we didn't use it often, it was always nice to know we could make homemade stir fry, bake a cake, or sauté some veggies if the mood hit. When we moved into our loft on Fore St., however, we exchanged that oven for scenic views, a outdoor deck, collaborative workspaces, and host of other upgrades—but we've always missed the ability to truly cook at work. That is, until we added this little guy to the mix.
