And Now, a Quick Word from Wondersauce

Since it’s been a while since we last mentioned Wondersauce (see: ReadQuick iPad app from six months ago), here’s a quick update from the digital design/development shop founded by AgencyNet/Code and Theory alums, Eric Mayville and John Sampogna, back in late 2011. The Sauce camp has added a fourth partner in fellow Code and Theory vet Brett Waszkelewicz, who will lead creative in the shop’s NYC hub as CD/partner and in turn joins the leadership ranks that includes CDs Mayville and Seth Klassen and managing director, Sampogna.

Waszkelewicz, who while at C+T served as CD on publishing sites for Mashable, The Verge and Ebony, has actually been working with Wondersauce for the past few months but didn’t officially make partner until this week. As for Wondersauce itself, along with ReadQuick and client work for the likes of HBO, Samsung and A-BInBev, we’ve been told that the shop has grown staff to 11 and is expected to launch a new site in the coming days.
