2013 was a great year – both inside the office and at home. We’re excited to see what 2014 has in store for all of us at EQ3, but we couldn’t move forward without giving 2013 one last Insta look. We asked our in-house designers to share their favourite Instagram from the past year.

 

Here’s what they sent in:

And just like that, it’s the end of the month and time for another Instagram round-up.

 

This time, our team sent in photos from their holiday celebrations, outdoor adventures and personal design projects. The highlight: Alex, one of our graphic designers, dressed up as a certain movie character for Halloween (pictured middle row, centre) and we think he really nailed the look. His Followers must have thought so too – the Likes from this photo trumped all previous shots. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true EQ3 Instagram round-up without at least one pet shot, so we’ve thrown a doggy-gram into the mix, as well. How could we resist?

Every month, after we’ve put the call out to our design and marketing teams for their latest Instagram faves (which we’ve rounded-up for the blog each month here: April, May, JuneJuly and August), someone always comes back with a shot of their precious pet. Well, this month, the team came back with not one, but FOUR shots of their furry friends and we couldn’t resist the urge to corral all of the unpublished ones over the past 6 months into this special Pet Edition of our Instagram round-up series.

 

For your Friday viewing pleasure…
