We’re Breaking Up the Band

2015 has arrived; a time of resolutions, hoverboards, and new beginnings. So, it seems more than appropriate that we take this time to announce the changes here at Hexanine.

It’s been nearly six amazing years, and we’ve had the pleasure and good fortune to work with dozens of great clients on amazing projects that inspired others, won awards, and moved the needle for organizations large and small. And now it’s time for a change.

After thousands of miles, millions of Skype sessions, and tons of wonderful memories, we are are bidding Hexanine a fond farewell, and moving on to new opportunities.

Both of us are heading off in different directions, with new challenges and other teams, as well as exciting solo endeavors. You can keep in touch with both of us in a variety of ways, so please drop a line or give a call.

Best wishes, adios, good night, and good luck!

“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.”
