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.

ARPseniors : STYLE

Not only do our ARPseniors have major talent, they have some pretty awesome style as well. 

We LOVE when they bring multiple outfits to their session (the ladies bring a few more than the fellas of course). It allows us to see their style and learn a little more about their personality at the same time. 

Stuffy clothes can = boring! We want our ARPseniors to be themselves and boring is not in their vocab. Being yourself creates a story that's truly worth telling!

ARPseniors : TALENT

It's no secret around here that our 2013 Seniors are ridiculously talented! It is so fun to watch their journey during their senior year and we love to see them follow their dreams. 

Senior sessions always end up being a creative collaboration, and each ones turns out so different! It's so fun for us to get to know them and create a custom sesssion around their interests.

The result : some pretty AMAZING images that tell an awesome story!!
