My name is Danny Blanton and like anyone else in a job there has been a series of events and decisions, failures and successes that have lead me to where I am today. All these turns in my life are my story. 'Where I am today' is the Creative Director for Sevenly and I was hoping through a series of blogs over the next several weeks I'd give you (the reader) some insight of what we do and how we do it through artwork and story.

Hooking up a DVD player to your television typically requires three things: a television, the DVD player, and the cables that connect the two. We take for granted the fact that all the connections between the three are similarly shaped and color-coded to make it as simple as connecting red circle to red circle. You know that once you connect all the colors correctly, your picture and sound will work with no problem when you hit play.
February 16th started like any other day at Sevenly Headquarters in Costa Mesa, CA. Doris, our Social Media Manager, had beaten us all to work as usual. The quiet stillness of the early morning in the office is her favorite time to check in with our Twitter and Facebook family. Doris began at Sevenly as a social media intern, and has now become the voice of Sevenly throughout our social media channels. She loves our customers. In meetings, she is always the first one to stand in the gap for our customers and remind us to stay centered on our motto that "People Matter."

Imagine a sister, a friend, a loved one – a person who means the world and deserves the world. Really think about their thoughtful eyes and their loving soul. Now imagine that beautiful person being sold, worked, and controlled by a relentless oppressor. Those thoughtful eyes seeing tragedy incomprehensible. That loving soul being broken by hate and indifference.
There were two students in a high school - a boy and a girl - who had Down Syndrome; we’ll call them Todd and Emily. They were the same year and had known each other - and just about everyone else in the school - almost their whole lives. Every student said hello in the halls, smiling and waving, as the happy couple would walk down the halls hand-in-hand. In a state known for niceness, this high school did not disappoint in that aspect: everyone was welcome. Within this small haven, Todd and Emily - regardless of their Down Syndrome - thrived, socially and academically.
It is a social crime to be a woman – a crime that could be punishable by death. You have escaped with your life, although you have been looked down upon for most of it, but now you are pregnant with your first child. You are brimming with joy, until you get the news: you’re having a girl. You can only have one child, and if you keep your precious girl, you know you will never be allowed a son. Sons carry the family name and make your family proud.
When “Mean Girls” came out in 2004, the jungle-like, girl-eat-girl world presented an environment that was meant to provide a little laughter and ridiculousness. However, the depictions of gossip, manipulation, claws, and mental war-games delved into a world that is all too real in today’s society: girl-on-girl bullying.
Benjamin Franklin was an author, printer, theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, activist, and diplomat. He established the world's first public library, signed the Declaration of Independence, and played a key role in the founding of the United States.
Anyone who has ever owned a dog knows firsthand that the saying, “A dog is a man’s best friend” is more than just a saying. It is easy to recount family canines from childhood and to start listing the reasons why your dog was and is near and dear to your heart. They are the first to welcome you home from a long day, make better walking buddies than an iPhone, keep feet warmer than blankets can and can be one of the most loyal companions you will ever have.
