You can also get lunch for a buck. But listen up, emptor, because there’s a caveat: In the words of John Ruskin, “It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.” You are what you pay for. You get what you eat. Or something like that.

The Barth and Co. Pile O’ Awards

9:00 AM Friday December 13, 2013

We’ve been fortunate to have our work recognized for excellence over the years. At some point, we began piling our awards up on the floor instead of hanging them. This got us more comments from visitors than hanging them on the wall ever did. Some people thought it was funny. Some thought it was our way of saying awards are unimportant. Or that we get so many we just pile them up. Others thought we were being coy. Or maybe we were getting ready to move. Our official position is that we do like winning awards because after all the hard work it feels good to be recognized. And it makes our clients feel good too. But beneath it all, we know what the hard truth is: you can take all of our awards – plus $1.85 – and that might get you a coffee at Starbucks.
