We’ve had the great fortune at KSD to maintain relationships with several of our clients that span decades.

Such is the case with the Master Musicians Festival. KSD has been involved with Somerset’s premier summer music event in some way since its inception 23 years ago. Whether developing MMF’s website, designing posters or brochures, writing press releases, fitting the stage with banners or sitting in our lawn chairs in July to take in the awesome festival atmosphere right here in our hometown, KSD is dedicated to supporting MMF and its mission of bringing musical excellence to rural Kentucky.

Getting Involved

To commemorate the 35th anniversary of Wendell Berry's ground-breaking book "The Unsettling of America: Culture & Agriculture," the Berry Center hosted a three-day conference in 2013 that featured notable authors, community activists, farmers, sociologists and agricultural economists. 
KSD designed the conference brochure, which outlined the goal and format of the conference as well as biographies of each speaker. In keeping with the theme of the conference, the brochure was printed in limited quantity on recycled paper. KSD was also a supporting partner of the event.

"Continued support from community sponsors, our fans, and a fantastic group of musicians has made our festival what it is today!"

Ballads of the Barefoot Mind

A two-year collaboration among artist, curator, designer and photographer yielded not only a collection of oversized oil paintings for a museum exhibition, but also an oversized foldout publication which included a music CD. The 21C Museum catalog wove the artist's lifelong connection with traditional ballads into a contemporary— if not dangerous — vision of the power these tales hold.
