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!

July Company Outing

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

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.

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!

Meet our newest team member!

Crisp Marketing would like to welcome our newest team member: Sarah Miller – Graphic Designer

Originally from Madison, Mississippi but now coming to you straight from Memphis Tennessee… our newest addition to the Crisp Marketing team… Graphic Designer, Sarah Miller!

Sarah moved to the Memphis area in 2012, where she now lives with her husband and two sons.  To avoid hurting any feelings, she also felt the need to call out her other family members… her two dogs, Kaelee and Lexi.  With an impressive eye for design, Sarah graduated from Mississippi State University with a BA (emphasis) in Graphic Design.  In her years as a student at Mississippi State, she won several design awards; including a Platinum Marcom Award.  After putting together a successful year of freelance designing, Sarah stood out among all of our submitted Graphic Design resumes and quickly became the 4th designer of our strong marketing team.

When asked what she thought about being the “chosen one” to join our Crisp family, she could only manage to mutter one thing…

“I’m very excited to join such a talented team here at Crisp Marketing”.

Well said Sarah.  Well said.

Thank you for your interest Sarah, and welcome aboard!  Crisp Marketing is lucky to have you.

January Company Outing

Every month we have a company outing, which usually consists of all the team members getting together after work and doing something fun and new as a group. Company outings not only give us a chance to see what great things Memphis has to offer, but it also brings us closer as a team and reinforces our cohesive work environment.

For January, we decided to try out Five In One Social Club in Memphis, which has been described as “Kindergarten for Grown Folks.” Since Broadway Pizza is just down the block, we grabbed a few pizzas from there, and headed down to Five in One.

Broad Ave is a very cool up-and-coming street that hosts a small number of small galleries, gift shops, and food/drink places. The owner of Five in One told us that the neighboring shop owners are warm and friendly, and welcomed her when she first moved her shop in.

One little helper even came out of her shop to greet us as we strolled by.

We grabbed a few pizzas from Broadway Pizza, and stopped in The Cove to google at the terrific eye candy decor.

If you haven’t been to The Cove yet – do yourself a favor and drop in. They have live music, karaoke, and the nautical-themed decor is pretty impressive.

Finally, we made it to our main destination for the night – Five in One Social Club.

In the front of the shop are hand-made gifts and goodies from local artists, all available for purchase.

The shop itself boasts hand-painted murals, quirky signs and shirts, and enough arts-and-craft supplies to start your own glitter army.

For our craft – we were going to make leather i.d. bracelets. The owner of the shop was our instructor, and she patiently took us through the steps and helped us along the way.

HUGE thank you to Alice at Five in One Social Club for getting us all set up, and for leading our craft party. That outing was a complete success, and we had a total blast!
