With a name like Karma, we make it our job to send out positive vibes to the universe and hope that they will boomerang right back. This summer was no different but our good intent and good deed focused on a special audience this time around – ourselves. For 10 weeks during the hot and humid, happy and freeing season of the year, we endured the agency's first ever #beyourbestself summer health challenge.

It’s 105 degrees, stifling hot in the city. But perfect weather for indoor, air-conditioned viewing of the 2016 Rio Olympics. Every four years, our lives revolve around the swimming, gymnastics, soccer, diving games and more. Our nights are planned, our lunch breaks are consumed with catch-up and the office is a buzz with Olympic moments.
We’ve been channelling our ever-present patriotism and love of America with the strive of Olympic Gold, setting aside—for a bit—the ugly political race. Hear what two of Karma’s Olympic mega-fans have to say about their history with the big games and how social media is influencing their perspective on Rio 2016.

Us Karmites have plenty of friends in busy places; many of whom work in fields similar to our own. While we often chat with them one-on-one to discuss the ever-changing world of communications, we figured it was high time to share the wealth. In the first blog post of a new series we like to call Karma Connected, we chat with Laiza Santos, member of the Host Committee for the Democratic National Convention's digital and social media team. While she's probably somewhere in a large crowd with her nose pressed to a brightly-lit cell phone screen right now, we were able to steal a few moments with this Jane of all trades last week to discuss her involvement with the DNC, how the social landscape is changing and what, exactly, we can do to keep up.

If you’ve been on the Internet (or outside) lately, you’ve probably come in contact with the world’s latest viral sensation: Pokémon Go. Originally inspired by an April Fools’ joke, the game has since evolved into a full-blown augmented obsession. In fact, as you’re reading this, flocks of people are meandering around town, phones glued to face, catching Pokémon. To put the games popularity into perspective, the success of Pokémon Go added $7.5 billion to Nintendo’s market value in a few short days.

For the fifth day running, the Financial Times has dedicated its front cover to the Brexit vote and the subsequent fallout. And this isn’t exclusive to UK papers, it’s seen on the covers of USA Today, The Globe and Mail, The New York Times and many others. It’s newsworthy because it was bold, unexpected. British citizens came to the realization of what just happened as they went and Google searched what they had just done, attempting to ask for another go at voting.

At Karma we can finish each other's sentences, but we never run out of questions which is why we paired two colleagues from separate departments and challenged them to an interview. We wanted to learn more about them, their jobs, their hobbies and what makes them tick.

Somewhere in the middle of selling ideas and solving communications problems, we talk to each other. We talk about things that matter to us. Things that inspire us to do more and become more. Things that are happening in our world and in the news.

A recent NPR story revealed that this year’s Pantone® Color(s) of the Year—Rose Quartz and Serenity—may have been inspired by hydrangeas in the garden of the color expert who lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest. Described as “spending her whole life noticing the way colors work together,” Leatrice Eiseman pointed to traces of rosy pink and powder blue in the mostly brownish blooms hanging on to the last moments of fall. Eiseman didn’t say for sure if the hydrangeas were the source for this year’s selection. In fact, for her, it seems the world around her and everything in it helps shape the decision-making process that produces just the right colors for our mood and imagination.
