Black Lives Matter

Today is no different than yesterday or eight days ago, or even 8 years ago. Our country has a racism problem. We should have spoken up a long time ago, been more consistent with our support and advocacy. You may have seen the term “generational pain” recently. This is the collective impact of 400 years […]

Does Your Brand Still Fit?

We’re expecting a string of sunny days over the next week. It’s what our friends at Fountain Square call, “local summer.” You grab the summery clothes bound for storage and give them one last wear on a hike, trip to the lake or backyard barbecue. We dig deep into the gratitude well and revel in […]

Perspective Requires Evolution

Ideas are considered a deliverable in our industry. It can be hard to sell an idea, people might say, “But it didn’t cost you anything.” I suppose to a certain extent that’s true, but in reality, any idea is a result of our perspective, whether that is how we grew up, the education and training we’ve […]

Face It—A Story of Two Headshots

Honoring Emotion

Backstage in theater

When I worked in theatre I used to say that “when you stop having butterflies before a performance, it’s time to stop.” Theatre is unapologetically rooted in emotion, people are literally chasing the prospect of feeling something. Tell me a story, take me to another place, teach me something. Pierce my world with magic. Standing backstage, […]
