Seattle Typestyles Explored

By Kimberly Hemesath / April 25, 2017

How does Seattle typestyles end up as the topic for this blog? I’ll tell you: Kelly and I were in Seattle a few weeks ago for NATCON17. I swear this show gets bigger and better every year.

Changing Your Space, Improving Your Outlook

By Kimberly Hemesath / January 26, 2017

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

By Kimberly Hemesath / November 22, 2016

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!

By Kimberly Hemesath / September 29, 2016

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.

By Kimberly Hemesath / March 31, 2016

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

By Kimberly Hemesath / January 28, 2016

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

By Kimberly Hemesath / November 17, 2015

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.

By Kimberly Hemesath / June 23, 2015

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…

Colorful Perceptions

Colorful Perceptions

By Kimberly Hemesath / May 28, 2015

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…

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.…
