Aside from mountains of turkey, pie, and cranberry sauce, Thanksgiving is a time where we pause to reflect on that for which we are grateful.
Each year on Halloween, the characters on the Cfx, Inc. team relish in the opportunity to dress up as different characters. This year was a spooktacular time, with our friends from St. Louis Earth Day, Green Dining Alliance, and Emerging Wisdom joining us for a pot luck lunch, followed by the annual Cfx costume-contest photoshoot. See if you can guess who everyone is! Happy Halloween!
White Castle's Hot Chicken Sliders hit stores on June 2nd and so far have left a blazing trail. The limited-time Hot Chicken Slider is accompanied by the all-new Bacon and Smoked Cheddar Chicken Slider and a new side, Fried Pickles.
The Hot Chicken Slider campaign is full of bold colors and messaging that perfectly compliment the bold flavors this promotion offers. White Castle even ramped up this campaign with catchy tv and radio commercials.
Cfx is always excited to design White Castle's signage for each new promotion. Stay tuned to see what we've been working on for their next campaign!
The most significant and competitive time of year in advertising comes on Super Bowl Sunday. Some of the world's most prominent and influential companies pay millions of dollars for a small chunk of advertising space, in which they hope to capture the attention (and ultimately, the pocketbooks) of consumers worldwide.
We tracked down some leaked commercials for this weekend's Super Bowl matchup, and thought we'd share our top 5 favorites with you.
Kentucky Fried Chicken is becoming known for their off-the-wall humor, and they set the bar even higher with their new campaign "There can be only one at a time."
Mercedes-Benz enrolled the expertise of famous filmmakers, the Coen brothers, and came up with this light-hearted biker-themed ad for their AMG GT Roadster.
4. Avacados From Mexico
Making a name for themselves in recent Super Bowl commercial lineups, Avacados From Mexico brought John Lovitz aboard to hypnotize your senses.
And then there's this rather bizarre TurboTax commercial about Humpty Dumpty doing his taxes on a wall, which utilized some unique scripting and special effects.
Our favorite part of the holidays wrapping up (other than puns) is the fresh start that the new year brings – not only in theory, but in people’s lifestyles and daily habits. Nearly everyone sets new year’s resolutions with the goal of giving their lives a facelift. Whether the objective is to eat better, exercise more, spend more time with loved ones, eliminate caffeine from one’s diet, or literally get a facelift, the ringing in of the new year brings unanimous hope and optimism.
Cfx has had a phenomenal, fun, adventurous, and productive year, and it’s our sincerest wish that all of you did as well. Cheers to 2017, wishing you and yours blessings of health and happiness. Happy New Year!

The theme was inspired by a surprise trip to Europe. Chris and Megan transformed their living room from a mid-century modern sitting area to a hotbed of European landmarks and influences. Be sure to follow Recyclart for all your holiday crafting inspiration.
We just wanted to take a minute to reflect on how thankful we are for all of our Cfxtended family! From our Cfxers (past and present), to clients (prospective and tried-and-true), to our awesome marketing partners — we would not be here without your friendship and support throughout the years.
"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." —William Arthur Ward
So, thank you for all your contributions — large and small — to our success and fortitude! We are truly blessed!

Perhaps it’s a growing awareness in the community, or perhaps it’s just a product of getting older … either way, it’s hard to deny the importance of recycling. In addition to being die-hard recyclers here at Cfx, Inc., we also utilize additional conservation methods such as composting. Composting is the process of salvaging and reusing decayed organic material, primarily as a source of plant fertilizer, and ultimately with the goal of reducing waste in the process.
Cfx extends a portion of their rectory office space to the nonprofit organizations St. Louis Earth Day and Green Dining Alliance, who are big time players in conservation and environmentalism in St. Louis and its surrounding communities. Holding events throughout each year, St. Louis Earth Day and Green Dining Alliance are advocates for all things environmentally-conscious. It was through their encouragement and influence that Cfx came to compost leftover foods, along with many other lesser known practices such as recycling electronic equipment, pharmaceuticals, and many other items most would simply throw in their trash can.
Doing business only a handful of miles away from the West Lake Landfill, all it takes is one drive by on the highway with the window cracked to smell the detriment that resides under the mountains of trash people produce every day, not to mention the radioactive waste that is known to exist in that landfill (along with countless others). While we can’t fix our waste problem overnight, we can all contribute to a better tomorrow. Cfx invites you to join us in raising awareness for more effective and responsible recycling and waste disposal.
