Supercool is fourteen

Categories: Learning things, Silly, Useful/interesting

Fourteen years ago Supercool officially launched as a partnership between James and Kris. Fast-forward to today, and we’re a hands-on team of five doing some pretty awesome work with some definitely awesome clients. (And we’re delighted that founding-father Kris is over from Norway to celebrate the milestone with us.)

For all you fans of number-related trivia out there, fourteen is:

  • represented as E in hexadecimal
  • the atomic number of silicon
  • the number of pounds in a stone
  • the minimum age at which one can work, with parent's consent, in most Australian states, apparently 
  • the number of Enigma Variations composed by Edward Elgar
  • the number of lines in a sonnet
  • the number of years Greyfriars Bobby spent guarding the grave of his master; until his own death in 1872

And finally, a 14th anniversary's traditional gift is ivory which, as a gift is gross – so here’s a much better use of ivory (and handy representation of great team work):

Go team! \o/
