With the start of the New Year, we reflected on the highlights from Otherside over the past 12 months. In 2012, we offered our insight into how to communicate your brand using social media and LinkedIn best practices for brands. We provided tips for creating memorable blog content, optimizing your brand’s social search and measuring social ROE. We even broke down our step-by-step methodology to cultivating social media experts.

It was also a great year for our clients. We experienced the inaugural edition of Expo Chicago, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, collaborated with world-renowned Chicago artist Theaster Gates, developed internal branding and marketing for the prestigious law firm Ungaretti & Harris, launched a new branding campaign for Baird & Warner and much, much more…

Here are a few of Otherside’s highlights:
