It’s Prime Time Baby!

14 Mar It’s Prime Time Baby!

Each year Key Tech designs a unique holiday card.  The goals of the card are simple, to make the recipients laugh and to include every person at Key Tech in the card itself.  The creative process behind the card varies each year, as does the holiday we select to celebrate.  In the past few years, Key Tech has celebrated Groundhog’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and Halloween.  Copies of the cards can be viewed here.

This year after much deliberation, we choose March Madness as our holiday.  WELCOME TO THE BIG DANCE.  Key Tech’s version of the March Madness bracket isn’t quite the same as the version floating around your office.  Our selection Sunday played out quite a bit differently, and instead of Duke versus North Carolina or Michigan vs Michigan State; Key Tech pitted fierce contenders against each other such as Stress versus Strain and Battery Life versus Performance.  Our bracket is filled with day to day decisions and considerations that go into the products we design, and the outcomes create some difficult decisions.  Who will win the showdown of Caffeine versus Gravity in the Elite 8?  I mean, how can you predict when you have the world’s best pick me up versus the invisible force holding us down?  THIS IS GOING TO BE A NAIL-BITER TO THE END!!!

With the basketball theme, what better way to feature the Key Tech team than classic basketball shots?  A quick trip to the sporting goods store and an afternoon photo shoot later, each Key Techee now has a personalized basketball card.  Engineers in 70’s basketball gear, I mean, it could only happen during BRACKET MADNESS!

Even in fun and games, a winner must be chosen.  Key Tech took the liberty of filling out the majority of the bracket, but the championship game is left up to YOU!  Respond in the comments with your selections for the two teams to meet in the finals and the ultimate victor.  Remember, March is when champions are made!  Full Bracket
