See What We Did This Summer

By Kimberly Hemesath | August 27, 2015

Summer

We had such a fantastic summer here at dRC! So we decided to take a look back at all the crazy, fun and exciting new things that took place over the past few months. Enjoy!

A new hire! We brought on a talented and energetic designer, Nikki Tomak, to the designRoom Creative team. Learn out more about Nikki in her bio! She had her headshot taken by Heather Campbell Photography in July.

Field trip! The dRC team ventured out to local photography studio, BurkleHagen Photography, and learned some of the ins and outs of food photography. Not to mention, we got a killer view of downtown Cleveland and enjoyed the tour of their modern space, including a fully functional kitchen!

Speaking of kitchens, the dRC office kitchen underwent a refresh of its own this summer. New cabinets, countertops and a dishwasher are among the upgrades the team will enjoy all year long!

New creative space! What was once Chad’s office has been revamped. The team enjoyed using the new, comfortable conference room throughout the summer. Its a perfectly cozy space for intense brainstorm/creative sessions.

Chad took a vacation! Actually, a stay-cation, but still, he took some time away from the office this August to stretch his legs and flex his creative skills. He worked on his infrared landscape photography. Check out some of the shots he captured!

Good Morning at Merwin’s! Matt & Nikki ventured down to Merwin’s Wharf in the flats for some continued education and networking at Creative Mornings CLE. Guest speaker Bob Ruggeri, founder of Omega Point Films discussed “Taking Action and Believing in Your F*cking Self.”

Birthdays galore! We celebrated 4 birthdays this summer – Nikki, Maddie, Kimberly and Rachel. The girls of dRC got a year older and a year wiser (we think)!

Ultimate team huddle! The team spent an evening at the ballpark cheering on the Indians, tweeting for Tribe Live and having a few drinks together. Despite the rainy weather, it was the perfect way to end the summer with a team outing.

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.

“I trust them with my brand. I trust them with my marketing business. They will not steer you wrong. They will ensure everything is on point moving forward.”

Lauren Byers, Vice President, MarshBerry

"Our client base increased. Our staff base increased. Our reputation and notoriety in the industry increased. The branding has lifted us up to be very confident.”

Denise Corbisiero, COO, Integrity Billing

“We trust them as true professionals who really understand the process that’s required to do things right.”

Carole Boye, CEO, Community Alliance

“They really bring in the heart behind the message. They tell the story in ways that are compelling. They’re really creative and that matters.”

Anthony Guido, VP of Communications & Marketing, Cohen Veterans Network

“…we really felt that they understood what we wanted to accomplish. They listened to us instead of puking their process on us.”

Laura Bren, President, Deeley Insurance Group

“Loved the process – we got so much more than a new logo; helped us unite around a common mission and language.”

Travis Pearson, CEO, Endeavors

“This input helped us work better together as a team. The whole brand refresh process was a wonderful team building opportunity.”

Matthew Wolf, Vice President, Seabrook

“We never had the production value in terms of the presentation/signage – the quality was new and impressive and people really embraced it.”

Marvin Ventrell, Executive Director, National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers

“Take the time to let designRoom get to know you. It is amazing that they get to the core of who you are…”

Jonathan Lee, President & CEO, Signature Health, Inc.

“They became much more like partners deeply embedded inside our business.”

Travis Mlakar, President, Millcraft Paper
