On July 21, history will be made at Shutterstock.
For the first time ever, we’ve set aside an entire day for the staff to work on their own creative projects. The only criteria is that the work should “make our company’s products or services better.” The office will be open all night, from noon Thursday to noon Friday, for 24 hours of sleepless, manic brainstorming and building.

We’re calling it Hack to the Future, and rest-assured we will be hunkered down, plugged in, buzzed on strong black coffee, and deploying code at 88 miles per hour. (And we’ll still be serving our customers like any other business day.)

Come Friday afternoon, every team will get a chance to demo their projects in front of their peers (and yes, this is after working for 24-hours straight). The best part is, we’ll be sharing clips and pics from the festivities here on the blog, on twitter and on our facebook page. Think of it as your little sneak peak into what goes on behind the scenes here at Shutterstock – and see just how passionate we are about creating the best site and the best experience for our users and contributors.

Stay tuned and check back often for live updates!
