10 Year Challenge
- 10 Year Challenge
- February 2, 2019
2019 marks the 10th anniversary of Ink Graphics Media
The 10-Year Challenge, or the 2009 vs. 2019 Challenge: Compare a photo of yourself in 2009 next to a photo of yourself in 2019.
The challenge started to take off after the start of the new year, largely on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. At its core, the 10-Year Challenge is a wholesome, socially acceptable way to brag about how hot you used to be, how hot you are now, or how hot you were and continue to be. (You can also replace the word “hot” with other adjectives, like “educated” or “married” or “unfathomably rich.”)
When I saw “friends” on Facebook posting their #10YearChallenge photos, I started to look back on Facebook, Google and on my archives to find out where I was 10 years ago and to my surprise I saw that it has been exactly 10 years since I founded Ink Graphics!!! Changing the name this year to Ink Graphics Media to reflect the added video production services we provide, nevertheless Ink Graphics was born on Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 (Thank you Google for helping me find the exact day of the week :-).

Looking Back: Being an artist, I have always known that I wanted to create for a living; Painting, producing hand crafted greeting cards, designing logos, business cards, websites, social media campaigns and recently producing video content for clients. Like every business it was not easy to start, I remember once I went into an interview for a graphic design position and the gentleman interviewing me mentioned how I would never make it as a designer because there was too much competition out there… After years of working for AD agencies I found myself without a job so thought to myself, this is it, this is the moment I have been waiting for, it is time to make my own path and work for myself. A decision that I will never regret.
