Well my fascination with concealed objects or messages was heightened last weekend while on a trip to Disneyland™ (I feel like I should trademark that, I don’t want to get sued or anything). During dinner, our waitress let us in on a few Disneyland secrets. For example, apparently there are hidden images of Mickey’s head placed throughout the entire park, like on rides, on the pavement, in the foliage, all over. Some are pretty obvious and some are a little more subtle. I’m sure this isn’t such a big secret, but I found it exciting for some reason and I made a goal to locate as many Mickeys as possible.
After returning home, I shared my Mickey-seeking adventures with my QK co-workers. I was told, to my amazement, that QuicKutz has some hidden messages of its own! You see Daniel, one of our art team members, has put a little creativity into the packaging of our 2x2 alphabets. You know that jumble of letters at the bottom? Well, within those jumbles lie some unseen meanings. For instance, you can find his initials (DWC) or his name (Dan or Daniel) in various configurations in nearly every one. He’s also incorporated the names of other QuicKutz employees including Amy, Rivka and Andrea (I’ll see what I can do about getting a Laura one). He’s even embedded the name of a certain state into the packaging for Biography. Bonus points to whoever figures that one out!
Perhaps you didn’t find any of this in the least bit amusing, but I bet a good amount of you are going to search for them the next time you’re at a QuicKutz retailer. Happy hunting!
P.S. I’d love to hear about any other kinds of hidden secrets or similar stories if you have any!
