Go Blog Social - Workshop 2015

Ampersand Design Studio

On February 22, 2015 we had the pleasure of being the keynote speakers at Go Blog Social Workshop!!! Go Blog Social is a designed to be your destination to learn how to grow your blog and social media knowledge, connect with businesses and get social with like-minded bloggers. The Workshop is held in Kansas City and offers a variety of hands-on, interactive courses in an intimate and creative learning environment. Basically, it's like camp for all of us that love social media or those that are wanting to learn more about how best to use it for your goals! The entire day was filled with inspiring speakers and we were seriously flattered to be included in that mix! If you missed it,  we shared our entire story....where we have been and how we got to where we are today (like every crazy detail including some parking violation issues from back in the day)...and then we talked about how we use social media and then a bit about how we think about partnerships for our business! We really hope those that could attend left with some new ideas and inspiration to go after whatever it is they dream of it!!

Ronald McDonald — Wylie House Grand Opening

Ampersand Design Studio

One of our biggest dreams when we started Ampersand was to be able to give back to the world in some small way. We were honored when we were approached by the incredibly talented, Jennifer Bertrand, to donate art for the brand new Ronald McDonald House in Kansas City.  As you will see in the video below, Jennifer, who designed it along with a team of generous volunteers, wanted the house to feel "like a hug." We have to say, mission accomplished. The house is filled to the brim with art, decor and details that make it feel like a refuge for families who need that hug most of all. It is the definition of creativity, inspiration and love.
