About Kimberly Hemesath

Kimberly Hemesath has been on the designRoom team since 2013. She has managed our studio, now she manages pretty much every aspect of our client relationships. What does that mean? It means Kimberly cares for the day-to-day well being of designRoom clients. Without them, we are nothing. So without her, we’re in trouble. Client relationships mean everything, so Kimberly has a big job, which she performs with determination, patience, and a smile. Kimberly will guide client work from proposal through to completion, serving as a liaison between client and creative team. She will ensure everyone on the team understands exactly what a client wants — determining goals and objectives, personal and organizational preferences, needs, and budgets. Kimberly will also guide creative and planning presentations and timelines, as well as completing creative briefs. Most of all, Kimberly makes sure that all work flows smoothly from our clients, into our studio, and back to our clients, meeting every objective. A graduate of Miami University of Ohio, Kimberly earned a degree in Marketing and a minor in Psychological Pathology. She’s worked at Yelp and the Phoenix New Times. She loves chocolate (required of all dR staff), but not coffee. Which is just weird.

Changing Your Space, Improving Your Outlook

Lots of studies have shown that changing your space - a workspace, a living space, or just cleaning your car - can improve your outlook, bring calm, and even improve productivity. I just changed mine, and I can affirm that it's true. While there are many ways to improve your work environment, a physical change in workspace is very [...]

A Year to Be Thankful For

On Thursday many of us will look back on the year and acknowledge the things we are grateful for. I decided to get a head start, because this year might have been the best year of my life. I have so much to be thankful for. Frankly, if I listed them all this would be the world's [...]

Back to It!

This is the time of year I think about the best ways to get "back to it" – ways to get back into a healthy work rhythm. The summer sun giving way to the fall chill. My vacation time is almost used up. It's time to get back to it and buckle down in Q4! This time of [...]

Motivation is a Marathon, Not a Sprint.

Motivation is a marathon, not a sprint. A fact I've always known but was (painfully) reminded of at our latest trade show, NATCON. While it was truly an impressive show and we had a great experience, both as exhibitors and attendees, it takes a lot of motivation to complete. Prep The preparation before all shows are intense, [...]

Working Toward the Beginning

For me, almost all projects start off the same -- working toward the beginning. I know that might not be what you wanted to hear. Everyone wants to think that each project is special (which they are!) but for me, they all start off at the same place: the end. By starting at the end and working [...]

Changing My Name

I'm changing my name. No, I'm not running from the law or trying to become famous. I'm getting married. And clients, now I get it! I can empathize with the bit of anxiety that comes with changing a name. Am I changing who I am? Will it be ok? How's it going to look on my monogrammed [...]

All In.

Before this month the phrase “All In” meant something very different to me than it does today. “All In” brought to mind a scene of individuals sitting around a table praying that the odds are in their favor as one of them slides all their chips to the center, hoping no one guesses they actually [...]

Colorful Perceptions

Our moods can be affected by so many things. A melancholy song, the weather, or even a smell. While many of these mood influencers can be clear as day, one of the biggest subconscious influencers is color. Remember the mood rings that were all the rage in the early 90's? Well as it turns out there is some [...]

“The List” – Trade Show Edition

Business cards. Check. Breath mints. Check. Anything in my teeth? All clear! These might be the final items on my check list just before hitting the exhibit hall floor this conference season, but truth is my check list began months ago. Absolutely nailing a trade show appearance requires a looooong check list and extreme attention to the details. [...]
