Tickled Pink

Kendall Creative is tickled pink to partner with Studio B to develop a mural for the exterior wall of the Dallas-based dance studio. The bright pink and bouncing “B”s mirror the fun atmosphere that young dancers experience inside the studio and reflects the personality of the studio’s owner. Props to Steve Hunter at HunterMurals.com for his outstanding work.

We are seeing a trend develop in the annual Red Rabbit guys trip to Lake Cypress Springs in East Texas – movie themes. What started as an excuse to play golf and watch some Final Four action, has turned into a branded event complete with “competitive” ping pong, horseshoes, canoe races, darts, ring & hook and of course golf. The winning captain of that year’s events takes home the Red Rabbit (think garden gnome in rabbit attire). The fun twist on the brand is the introduction of the movie theme. T-shirts, golf apparel, koozies, etc are branded each year with the movie-themed Rabbit. We can’t wait to see what movie they choose next year…

Established in 1983, Tex-Air Delivery, Inc. is a licensed motor carrier that operates out of Dallas-Fort Worth airport. Tex-Air recently announced a strategic partnership with AirTrans, Hammer Down Delivery and R&R Cartage. The new freight delivery partners asked Kendall to assist with an updated logo design. The resulting logo (above, right) communicates the idea of the open road, motion and connectivity. The new logo will translate well across the additional Tex-Air branded materials. Watch our site for the revised Tex-Air website… which will be delivered soon.

The Dallas Morning News recently praised Turner Courts Recreation Center for being a bright spot in the Bonton area of South Dallas. We are pleased to know that the message of hope we helped create for Turner Courts has inspired residents in nearby areas to take pride in their community.

On March 9, 2012, DallasNews.com staff writer Diane Jennings wrote:

“In the South Dallas neighborhood of Bonton, trash piles up along fences, stray dogs roam the streets and clumps of men loiter outside the liquor store.

Then there are the bright spots: the pristine Turner Courts Recreation Center, dozens of nicely kept Habitat for Humanity homes — and the determination of residents like Clifton Reese and Velma Mitchell.

Reese and Mitchell are founding members of the fledgling Bonton Neighborhood Association and unlikely allies in the battle against the neglect and indifference that pervade the community. He’s a reformed drug dealer, and she’s the mother of a son killed in a drive-by shooting. But both share a passion for Bonton.” Click here to continue reading

Kendall Creative recently partnered with Blue Chip Advisors LLC to aid in the development of an executive benefits insurance packet for GameStop. If you haven’t heard of GameStop, it’s the world’s largest video game retailer, ain’t no thang, but really…it is. Kendall creative took an “in control” approach creating a folder displaying the four arrows on a gaming controller. Dark, ominous and centered around the good stuff. That’s one big controller and you know what they say, the bigger the better.  In this case it just happens to be about the benefits.
