Motion Turns 17: A Look Back as We Move Forward

March 28 is a special day at Motion—today we celebrate 17 years in business. As we celebrate Motion as an independent, woman-owned and award-winning agency, it’s always fun to look back at what where we started and how much the world has changed. 

Back in 2006, George W. Bush was president, Italy won the World Cup, and Green Day had the album of the year. People in the social media, communications, advertising and PR worlds were talking about how Google bought YouTube and determining what song to put on their MySpace page.  

At the time, Motion was fully remote and stayed that way for another three years. Being 100% remote wasn’t widespread in 2006—work-sharing spaces like WeWork didn’t even come into existence until 2010—but today remote work has become a way of life for companies around the world. How we work, where we work and the medium of work itself has changed more than we could have ever thought. 

A lot has happened over the last 17 years that has helped shape and mold our business, experiences and specialties. And though we could tell you how Motion has grown by leaps and bounds, how we’ve expanded our services and clients and how our people are the best in the business, we thought we’d share some of the major events that have transformed the world of technology, social media, journalism and more since 2006.  

Here’s to at least 17 more years.
