Why “Motate”?

motate: (mō‘tāte): (v.) to move quickly with style

Let me lay to rest your nagging curiosity about why the company is named “Motate Media.” The word “motate” was something I heard often growing up. My mom would often tell us to “get motated,” meaning “get moving.” It was somehow related to the word “motivation” with the -ate suffix to emphasize action.

Later I found that others had adopted this word as well. An online dictionary defines motate as a verb that means to “move quickly with style.” I thought that this would be an appropriate name for a design agency, but mostly it is to honor my mom and her lifelong goal to get me to “motate.”
