How To Public Speaking

By | announcing, thought provoking | One Comment

  Have you all heard of Ignite? An Ignite evening is made up of short talks on interesting subjects. Each speaker has 5 minutes (and 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds) to tell you about something they’re passionate about. Here in Charlotte, we’re getting ready for Ignite Charlotte 5 and I’m honored to be one of the speakers! I’ll be giving you tips on How To Get Pretty Much Anyone To Do Pretty Much Anything. I’m launching the battle early with my ENFP inclinations, and making myself begin working on my talk now in the hopes of finishing strong and avoiding…

A New Kirtsy

By | announcing, design, kirtsy | One Comment

Super exciting news to share, y’all! Kirtsy relaunched yesterday! I’m one of the co-founders and we’ve been working hard for about 5 months (or 3 years, depending on how you want to look at it) to get a completely new site up. The old site was a great experiment in crowd-sourcing. But as the web has become more crowded, Kirtsy became less of a resource and more of a, how shall we say, crackhouse. For spammers.

Revival Market

  Friends. Texans. People who love food. I’m excited to show you something we made. It’s a logo and a website. For an amazing place: Revival Market. Revival is a locally-sourced grocer, butcher shop, coffee shop, and restaurant all wrapped up in one hip store that opened in March, in Houston. We had the great honor (and luck) of getting to design for these folks, and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. Co-owners Ryan Pera (from Charlotte, y’all!) and Morgan Weber were the best kind of clients: smart, interested, opinionated and creative. No wonder the store is…

Sign of the Times

By | announcing, design | 5 Comments

Well folks. It’s official. We have been in our LEAP office for a full year now, so we decided “what the heck, let’s put some signs up!” There are many advantages to being tucked away in our sweet, squat little 1950s building, but we think our clients (and more importantly, our potential clients) will appreciate us making it a little easier to find our office. What can I say, we’re givers. So now you have no excuse not to visit us. And as soon as the Diamond reopens across the street, just give us a shout as you’re pulling in…

By | announcing, conferences, happy, thought provoking, video | 2 Comments

(Can’t see the video? Try this link.) The brilliant and beautiful Katherine Center has done it again. This time in the form of a video addressing the statement Mom 2.0: Defining a Movement. I can’t wait to see Katherine in Houston next month at the Mom 2.0 Summit. I feel like time spent with her, regardless of what we’re doing, is quality time. Do you know people like that?
