To the Best Year Ever

As we close the book on 2016 and gear up for the year to come, the Synect team has taken a little time to reflect, de-stress, and refocus.

A weeklong series of two-way employee and manager reviews raised our collective spirits—along with the occasional eyebrow—and gave each of us a unique opportunity to talk candidly about where we’ve been and where we want to go.

Synect Expands to the Sunshine State

Synect’s growing beyond the evergreen state—and our new office is ensuring plenty of sun, fun, and easy access to our east coast clients. Synect Orlando opened for business earlier this summer with a talented staff of new art directors and program managers. The new team works alongside Synect’s Executive Creative Director Nir Bashan and Creative Director Ryan Boyle, who transferred from our Redmond headquarters.

Synect zips through the trees at Northwest Trek

Our latest team building exercise literally elevated our vision—taking us 50 feet up the air at Tacoma’s Northwest Trek. Our growing group of video wall experts spent the day traversing through the park’s Adventure Course—an outdoor obstacle course including a 30-foot rock wall, zip lines, high wires and more. It was scary, it was fun, it was an adventure, and we did it together.

Synect Welcomes Sr. Art Director Gordon Sumioka

The Synect team is excited to welcome its newest hire, Senior Art Director Gordon Sumioka. Gordon has worked in production studios in the Seattle area since leaving LA in 2008, and he welcomes the challenges of Digital Out of Home and more.
