SOMETHING NEW FROM ARP: KITBASH BRAND DESIGN


Kitbash_670px

Hi All,

Jeff here, you know, that guy from Allison Rodgers Photography, the Little Blog of Big Ideas and lbobi Radio? Today, I want to tell you about our latest adventure that I am heading up. It's called Kitbash : Brand Design. I am sure you are asking yourself, "What is a Kitbash?" Allow me to explain it with a brief back story.

As many of you know, Allison and I were both Art Directors for 7 years before we started our portrait studio 8 years ago. So design and branding have always been near and dear to our hearts. We have discussed for a while offering to the public our design services, which we've been doing privately for clients and friends for years. We love helping other business owners put their best designed foot forward, and from this desire to help, Kitbash : Brand Design was born.

Defined: Kitbash is the practice of constructing a new, custom model by combining pieces from different kits into a single, unique creation.

I thought Kitbash was a great conceptual name for a creative agency. When Allison and I help businesses with their branding, we like to take what they already have and combine it with the new parts we create for them, creating a new unique brand that tells their story.

 
All about Kitbash!

Website: The first phase is up, and we will be adding the blog as the second phase in the coming weeks. You can check out the site here: http://getkitbashed.com/ 

Blog: We are still using the lbobi blog as the main place to post. You can check it out here: http://lbobi.com/

Podcast: And finally, Kitbash Radio is our bi-monthly podcast that usually runs about :30. On this show we like to offer design, branding and marketing tips for business owners. You can listen to our first episode here or jump over to the podcast page or listen in iTunes.
 

In our very first episode of Kitbash Radio, author Brian LeTendre and I are joined by the friendly Allison Rodgers to talk about the origins of Kitbash Brand Design, the evolution of lbobi, and how important it is to get your branding right. We also answer listener questions about logo design from the Kitbash Facebook page.

OPERATION BEAUTIFUL!

Allison_operationbeautiful
As a photographer I hear this statement from females of ALL ages A LOT :

"Make me look beautiful!"

This statement says so much about the way we view ourselves. We have to be an example for our girls and show them that just because the "world" says they have to be one way, it's ok not to follow those rules. Who set those rules anyway?

I'll be 40 this year and I'm proud of that!

The age on my face has been placed there by the 39 1/2 year journey I've been on. This journey has aged me - its supposed to! Yes, I wear make-up, I have my hair cut into a style, I choose to wear clothes that I think are cute etc etc etc. But my value does not come from these external choices.
 
Ladies - you are BEAUTIFUL - be confident in the beauty that God has given you!

This video is about some girls in Plano, Texas that decided to go to school without make-up! GREAT JOB girls :)


If you want to join me, then send us a picture, post one on facebook or instagram, just get it out there!!! You can do it! WITHOUT MAKE-UP!!!

Spread the word : #operationbeautiful
