Congrats to Jake for taking home the gold in the Potato Toss!

February Outing

Hello again! We hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend! In an effort to start this work week off right we’d like to show you some photos from our most recent company outing! The team met up at Lafayette’s Music Room here in Memphis. We ate some amazing food, had some cocktails, and caught an incredible live performance of Jocelyn and Chris Arndt. Combined with the mild weather, it turned out to be another fantastic company outing with Crisp Marketing!

By the way – one of us got to meet Jocelyn and Chris and get a photo! They’re so very sweet and unbelievably talented!

Looking forward to the next outing!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Crisp Marketing

Yesterday we had our “Mix Tape Party” (AKA Valentine’s Day office party – 80s style). Not only did we watch Dirty Dancing and listen to some 80s romance songs, but we got all pizza’d out and even played a quick round of 80s Rom Com Trivia!

 

We even got a few pictures of our team members in full Valentine’s Day spirit!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Crisp Marketing!

Puzzle Day in the Crisp Office!

January 29th is National Puzzle Day and we decided to celebrate here in the Crisp Office with a puzzle exchange!

 

Everyone took a turn drawing a number to see what turn they go to pick a puzzle.

Then we took turns picking a puzzle based on what number we drew.

Turns out everyone got the puzzle they wanted! Happy National Puzzle Day from Crisp Marketing!

The conference room was decked out, we enjoyed a sammich and veggie lunch (complete with Dragon Blood Punch), and we even had some fun games lined up like a Halloween Bake-Off, Trivia, and to close the festivities we painted and decorated pumpkins. Another awesome office party for the Crisp Marketing team! Happy Halloween everyone!

International Beer Day Celebration – Crisp Style

August 4th, 2017 was International Beer Day, and Crisp marketing took full advantage of this fun holiday!

We all gathered in our favorite conference room and enjoyed some brew-inspired decor, a mini-flight of locally-made beers, and of course – Beer Bingo!

We ordered in some burgers from a local burger joint (which were AWESOME), and everyone went home with their own beer mug and homemade popcorn! All in all, our International Beer Day celebration was a complete success!

July Company Outing

Another Crisp Marketing company outing has come and gone! This time we all ventured out to Loflin Yard here in Memphis.

DSC_0002Small

It was a hot and humid summer night down here in the South, but the setting sun brought a nice warm breeze, and the drinks inside were cold and refreshing. The house-created cocktails at Loflin Yard boasts an earthy freshness thanks to their creative use of local fruits and veggies. If you find yourself at the Loflin Yard before summer’s end, try ‘My cousin has a pool in Mississippi’, you won’t be disappointed.

DSC_0051Small

Inside the front section of the Loflin Yard you’ll find a warm and friendly atmosphere, with oversized booths perfect for bigger groups. The food menu is a little limited, but the quality and taste of everything went way beyond expectations, which goes to show you that less can definitely mean more. The outside area is cleverly built around the Loflin Falls, giving visitors a homey and beautiful oasis in the middle of busy downtown Memphis.

Spotted along the rustic brick wall are food windows framed out of the original design of the building.

Behind the first building is a large open space filled with comfortable patio chairs, fire pits, misters overhead to help cool you off in the summer heat, and enough vintage string lights to illuminate a village. Our team quickly scouted out our spot, and relaxed under the Memphis evening sky.

In the back of the Loflin Yard is another barn like building with a full bar, a stage, and table and chairs for more socializing. Just outside the back of that building, is yet another open space with lush green grass, more seating, and some outdoor games like bags.

The Crisp team spent the rest of the night enjoying each other’s company around the still fire pit as we talked about music, films, and childhood memories. Not only was it the perfect end-of-summer night, but the peaceful and gorgeous setting of the Loflin Yard was a special treat all it’s own. This company outing was a complete success!

The Blue Room – Meet Kirk

Welcome back to The Blue Room! This month addition spotlights one of our team members so that you can get to know them better. This month we have the pleasure of getting to know our Content Director, Kirk Cassels!

 

What is your title at Crisp Marketing?
Content Director

How long have you worked for Crisp?
3 months come July 27

Give us an idea of what you do regularly in your role.
I manage the content team and work with the design team to produce engaging editorial, advertorial and informational material for our audiences across our social media, web, and newsletter channels.

What are 3 words you would use to describe Crisp Marketing?
Innovative. Creative. Fun.

What do you like most about working for Crisp Marketing?
I enjoy the experience of collaborating with everyone as we test new methods of content delivery and revamp common ones as a means of figuring out where, when and how we best engage our audience.

Do you have an office nickname?
It’s very easy to call me Captain Kirk, despite my lack of knowledge of “Star Trek.”

What is your favorite thing about living in Memphis?
The food has been my favorite thing about Memphis. It may be too much of my favorite thing as it’s been a blessing for my palate but a curse for my love handles.

What month and day is your birthday?
August 14

Where did you go to school?
Undergrad at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY
Grad school at Temple University in Philadelphia (a city reminds me a lot of Memphis)

What is your favorite movie and book?
“Aliens” or “Django Unchained” for movie.
“The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay” or “Invisible Monsters” for book.

What are your three most overused words/phrases?
“Here’s the thing…”
“Someone called me jeopardy to society, so I called him a price is right to society”
“If you can’t write the truth interestingly enough, then don’t bother with writing fiction just yet.”

Tell us a little bit about your life outside of work. (hobbies, family life, side jobs, etc)
I love to ski, which has been a difficult-to-appease urge since moving to a place that’s 7 hours from the closest mountain. But it’s been worth it because I came to Memphis to be with the person who just became my fiancée and she’s worth all the skiing vacations combined. I tend to be a bit shy at starting the conversation but then end up being the one who won’t stop it. I grew up with dogs and love dogs, but became a cat owner during the last 20 months and have grown fond of them as well. We have fish, too, but frankly I find them boring. I may be the only person I know who owns a croquet set.

What is the one thing you cannot resist?
Pretzel M&Ms

What’s your favorite travel spot?
Eastern Long Island after Labor Day, but before September ends.

What would your friends/family say about you if I asked them to tell me about you? How are you known outside of work?
Work hard, play hard. I try to keep life outside of work as leisurely as possible, and have been referred to as a goofball often. Growing up watching a lot of movies and television has given me a database of useless information unless it’s at pub trivia or making asinine allusions by comparing current events to some fictional material.

If you could spend a day hanging out with anyone from any time period, who would it be and why?
Although he wasn’t a personal inspiration to me, I think hanging out with Muhammed Ali at the peak of his boxing career would be as exciting a day as it could get. His personality, talent, and presence was a force of nature unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

Did anyone influence your decision when building your career? If so, who?
My high school English teacher taught me a lot about how the skills involved in journalism and analytical writing can be applied to about any industry, and that a night home with a movie or two is better for you and less expensive than a night out partying hardily.

What did you want to be growing up?
I wanted to be a professional athlete who, after a bad injury, switched careers to be a sports doctor to help take care of his teammates.

What is your life philosophy, motto or favorite quote?
Don’t count how many heartbeats you’ve used up or have left, just make each one count.
