1 Trick Pony: The Magic of Collaboration
A Digital Dynamic Duo
After seven years together at the interactive ad agency 1 Trick Pony, Director of Development John Blazek and Digital Creative Director Elijah Vargas have built a very unprofessional relationship. It’s truly crossed the line – they’ve locked minds in a tap dance of 1s and 0s to accomplish more than either could apart. Like Hall & Oates, Kid n’ Play, Bebop & Rocksteady – when these two team up it’s magic. For the first time ever, John and Elijah will condense the magic of collaboration into a 45-minute talk and Q/A to share with the world.
Join us on the rooftop Maken Studios, one of Philadelphia's newest creative communities. Q/A will be followed by music (from Adjacent), food and beverages (sponsored by Narragansett and Spodee). Enjoy the picturesque skyline view, or learn more about Maken Studios North with a guided tour. Party goes until 10:00, or whenever they throw us off the roof.
Maken Studios North (formerly the JOMAR factory) is located at 3525 I Street 19134, about a 2-minute walk from the "Tioga" stop on the Market-East Line. Signs will be posted from the terminal to Maken Studios North. Secured parking will be available across the street from Maken Studios North at the Harrowgate Plaza. On street parking is also available. Not driving or using Septa? We're excited to announce a partnership with UBER. All guests who are new to Uber can book a complimentary ride up to $20.

Must be 21+ to drink alcohol. IDs will be checked at the door.
