As we look back on SXSW 2018, it is hard to ignore some of the most innovative and unique happenings brought to our backyard this March. Activations, celebrities and creators alike flocked to Austin for a week full of events surrounding the industries of technology, music, film, media, marketing and advertising, journalism and much more. Our very own Founder and Managing Partner, James Trumbly, was lucky enough to attend many of these sessions and could not help but gush about the amazing times he had this year. Can you blame him? Below are some of HMG’s favorite picks for SXSW’s most interesting and even impromptu events.

Barbecue is big part of life if you live in Austin, TX. If you search the web for top Austin BBQ spots, you’ll get plenty of lists from places like Eater or Do512.

He has a great sense of humor, believes his spirit animal is a squirrel and is a great addition to any team. Continue Reading →
