Today was a perfect day for a little high-definition drone video! Videographer Ramie Hutchison skillfully captured some beautiful aerial footage as part of a corporate video for one of our manufacturing clients.

KSD is developing a new name and brand, website and marketing solution for Visual Risk Technologies headquartered in Nashville. After a morning of concept presentations and photographing staff for the project, Kirby, Bill Jones and William Cox were invited to join the company in an afternoon of (relatively) high-speed laps at an indoor track. Much fun was had by all.

I am not a musician. Yet, here I sit with my Willie Nelson autographed Fender acoustic guitar. It was a gift from our friends (and clients) with the Master Musicians Festival earlier this year. At the MMF lineup launch party in March, Tiffany Bourne, president of the festival, and her board of directors surprised me and thanked me and the rest of the KSD team for our design and marketing efforts for the festival over the years.

“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” — Special Olympics oath

Brave in the attempt. It feels as though I’ve spent my life attempting to be brave. Too afraid of failure, or disappointment, or of what others might think of me to seize the day, I’ve often allowed thrilling opportunities to pass me by.

On occasion we need a little creative inspiration. This week our good friend and occasional collaborator, Dan Dutton, took the staff of KSD on a walking tour of an amazing private sculpture garden in development by Pulaski County attorney and art collector Richard Hay.

"A car battery, a real estate development, a glass of wine, an iPhone App, and, a urine test. What do each of these have in common?"

This was how Kirby began his lecture to the ELI (Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute) class of 2013 at the Center for Rural Development earlier this month.

In the land of white trucks, our almost 80 year old building is getting some minor repairs. It sounds like there are elephants on the roof right now.

The chance of having twins in the US is a fraction over 3%, or basically 33 to 1. Pretty slim odds. Better than winning the lottery, but not as likely as winning at roulette.

This is one of the myriad of things that makes working at KSD so interesting. Out of six employees, half of them have twins… or in the case of our newest employee, expecting twins. (I’m not sure that “expecting” is the right word, she’s pretty darn sure about it.)

Part of our job here at KSD is to help clients present their message – their business – in a clear, concise and visually appealing way. We give a lot of consideration to audience, and give much thought to how the intended audience might interact with the company or product. We make the effort to put ourselves in the position of someone else, always trying to look at things from different perspectives.
