Next up to bat is our fabulous Senior Project Manager, Christina, flexing her clock-making muscle and the crowd goes WILD!
And how fitting that we post this entry on National Doughnut Day. Who knew? National Doughnut Day was established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to raise much-needed funds during the Great Depression, and to honor the work of World War I Salvation Army volunteers who prepared doughnuts and other foods for thousands of soldiers.
You go, girl!!
Did anyone know that the character in those iconic “time to make the donuts” commercials was named “Fred the Baker”? Yes, I admit it, I like and reference Wikipedia. The commercials aired from ’82 to ’97 and showed Fred in a state of half-consciousness similar to the one I was in when I came up with the idea for my clock. It was a middle of the night epiphany that alleviated a lot of the anxiety I was feeling about having to compete in a creative competition with my colleagues – a group of the most inspired, artistic and inventive people imaginable. Anyhow, I am pretty proud of myself (as everyone around here is sufficiently sick of hearing) and look forward to seeing all the other cool designs!
Please note no doughnuts were eaten in the making of this clock.
