InterWorks Now and Then: A Photo Challenge


InterWorks Now and Then: A Photo Challenge

by Andrea Avey

As years end and begin, we like to think back fondly (or not so fondly) on the last twelve months and look ahead with expectancy to those upcoming. As 2018 transitioned into 2019, popular culture decided (for some reason) to look back … way back … to 10 years ago. This manifested in a variety of ways: some called it the 10-Year Challenge, others called it the How Hard Did Aging Hit You? Challenge. For us at InterWorks, we prefer a simpler now-and-then approach.

Enjoy some photos of our team now, and take a look back—and maybe even a listen—through the days of yore.
