“So much sweet Pokeball goodness”

With the launch of Pokemon Go (Australia) last week, swarms have taken to the streets on the weekend and from the looks of it, the addiction doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

I don’t know about you, but when you work in a digital agency, it’s hard to ignore the latest and greatest in technology. “Gaming at work” is such an ugly phrase, we prefer “thorough digital research and testing”. It makes it twice as bad when our office itself is a Pokestop (well, it’s only a stone’s throw behind us which practically makes the whole office a treasure trove full of sweet Pokeball goodness).

If only this happened in every supermarket!

“Wow, never did I expect to get an email from Ritchies IGA boss Fred Harrison!”

Each Christmas, we celebrate a little differently. Rejecting being “average” is part of our mantra here at Chromatix. And this Christmas rather than sending bottles of wine and Christmas cards to our clients, we spent the money on something else.
