The Fifth Ring Houston team recently buried a time capsule in celebration of its 10th anniversary. The time capsule—to be opened on 08/08/28—is meant to reflect on the past, celebrate the present and envision the future. Below is the message that the time capsule contained.
To the Fifth Ring Houston team in 2028: Congrats on 20 years in Houston!
We’re so glad you found our time capsule. Maybe you used something new and hi-tech to locate it beneath the ground. Maybe you’re reading it on your commute as your car drives itself. Maybe this letter in the time capsule is the first piece of paper you’ve seen in years.
Most likely, we can’t even fathom how much will have changed by 2028. How do we know this? Because a lot can happen in a decade. We know because we’ve seen it.
When Fifth Ring Houston first opened in 2008, Obama was first elected into office. Miley Cyrus was still Hannah Montana. The Olympics in Beijing were just beginning.
The last 10 years have been a whirlwind of ups and downs. Last night was definitely an 'up' as we celebrated our 10th anniversary with a party at our San Felipe office with 50 of our closest colleagues, clients and vendors. (Are we still at the office in Sage Plaza? Do we occupy a shiny new building in the Houston skyline?)
Everyone who attended received a time capsule as a gift. We asked our guests to reflect on the part they played in our past, celebrate the present and envision what the next 10 years will look like.
What do we envision for the next 10 years? We hope Fifth Ring Houston continues the rapid growth we’ve experienced. But as we continue to grow, we hope the collaborative, tight-knit culture remains the same. And as quickly as technology is advancing, we hope we are not only able to stay on top of the latest and greatest trends, but be one step ahead of them.
Above all else, we hope we can continue doing what we love thanks to our wonderful clients and brilliant vendors who allow us to be able to think like strategists, create like artists and act like pros every day. We wouldn't have it any other way. No matter if it’s 2018, 2028 or beyond.
