After working at agencies of varying sizes and shapes, I've determined that any team needs culture and extracurricular activities. It unifies, builds morale and, most importantly, is just plain fun. These are a few things I've been a part of or helped organize.

Letterpress happy hours
Alison Chapman has a special thing at Igloo Letterpress. Cases upon cases of antique wood type and a willingness to let creatives and non-creatives experiment and print their own unique little pieces of art. I arranged for 3 small groups of co-workers to do just that in a series of "letterpress happy hours."
It wasn't all fun and games. In order to gain support from the company, the participants in the happy hours were tasked with printed unique note cards using the agency's key philosophies.
