Grow KU Theme and Branding

Grow KU Theme and Branding

Grow KU, a Student Senate coalition led by Morgan Said and Miranda Wagner, is hopefully the last in a long string of undergraduate political campaigns. For this run, I was given more responsibility and the title of Marketing Chair, working directly with the slate on messaging, promotions, and strategies. As this is an ongoing campaign, […]

KC Fringe Festival

KC Fringe Festival

The capstone course. William Allen-White’s pivotal moment in its Strategic Communications disciples’ tenure. Campaigns. That kind of rubbish was impressed all four years at the institution – about how much the class would straight kick your ass. How it burdened generations past with all-nighters and hundred-page plans books. Malarky, the lot of it. Perhaps it […]

BCG Zoomin

BCG Zoomin

Zoomin should be the beginning of a grocery store revolution. Drive-thru shopping. How has no one else in America done this yet? To generate buzz, I was tasked with writing most of the copy between Tumblr posts, email blasts and a full-page newspaper ad. Tumblr Most of the illustrations were composed by Jacob Burghart, although […]

BCG Blogs and Case Studies

BCG Blogs and Case Studies

Over the summer we hit a lull, and I converted some of that time to writing up posts for the website. Snippets included below. Also, my name is Jackson because the company isn’t big enough for two Tims. Why We love Westport …Technical Director, and part-time carnival barker, Kyle Zarazan’s favorite sandwichery Which Wich must […]

Shedor Christmas Card 2012

Shedor Christmas Card 2012

Every year my family does a special Christmas card. Yeah, we’ll include the expected and generic Hallmark folded note and the best picture from that year’s vacation, but instead of a dry letter, we get creative. Mom rewrote “Up on the Rooftop” one year and included the sheet music. I created a Shoots and Ladders […]

Kansan HTML/CSS Workshops (Fall)

In an ongoing search for more staff on the digital side, PoliticalFiber.com teamed with Kansan.com to sponsor another round of workshops. Fall 2012 featured two beginner courses and one intermediate. The site was written and created from scratch, save a few links from the Workshops of Spring 2011. The touch-up of the spring’s workshops, included a […]

The End of the End of the Belt (And Successful Shopping Tips)

As I brought the cereal boxes two inches forward on a slow Sunday afternoon, I finally realized something. The apron wasn’t meant for me. Not only did it highlight my bulby bottom and awkward frame, but black was really never my color. It also represented an institution I simply couldn’t tolerate any more, minimum wage […]

Knock Knock Knockin’

Last Friday I had the 3:30-7:00 p.m. shift, but what could I do? I kept asking for Saturdays off, and now my Bank of America digits were coming closer and closer to the big O. I needed the money, so I was driven to accept the awkward time slot. Like any resourceful teenager, I stalked […]

Kansas, Get Your Act Together

Today should have been a snowday. Instead, it was a workday. I usually work the 11-5 shift on Saturdays, and enjoy it because I can party late on Friday and still get a good 9 hour sleep. But today work was a chilly hell as a snow storm barraged the parking lot and iced the […]

Music Meltdown

A staple for any self-respecting grocery store is quality music. The soundtrack practically consumes the store as it fills the awkward space inbetween aisles and shelves. It gaps your thoughts when you wonder if Nabisco really offers better saltines than Zesto. It uplifts the spirits when it’s just you between the wide shelves of aisle […]
