<p>This is a tribute to Creature's first employee and honorary founder, Melissa Peterson.</p><p>My partner, Jim, and I (Matt, her husband) could never have gotten off the ground in 2002 without her (or look like the cool indie rock band that we do in this picture). She helped us set the culture of our company that carries on today. Have fun, be nice and make friends. Don't stress out! It's advertising, for Pete's sake.</p><p>Melissa, we all love you and miss you. Your spirit is undefeatable. You rock, and a big champagne Friday toast to you!
