EVENT PRODUCTION: CRAFTSMEN & CREATIVES — WITH BRIDGET FRIZZIE

In our world, we understand the importance of celebrations and how vital they are to the human spirit. Sometimes it’s the simplest gesture. Like a floral centerpiece — it expresses every sentiment — especially with personalized details. And sometimes, an event experience that engages all the senses, whether it be a wedding, corporate function, birthday, or experiential activations — these occasions create memories to last a lifetime. As an event production company full of craftsmen and creatives, our purpose is to inspire and elevate meaningful celebrations for our clients.

NEW WORLD. NEW GROWTH | EVALUATE ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE

There is this breath of excitement in the ‘newness’ we are experiencing now. Gaining fresh, unexpected perspectives as we listen and share individual voices, we are constantly driven to excel. We must keep alert to our changing world and always keep it at the forefront of our minds.

I am always amazed by up-and-coming talent. The next generation of craftsmen, creatives, and event designers will layer details organically and thoughtfully in a way that will speak to crowds like never before. The desire to learn and expand their minds is exhilarating.

We feel fortunate that KEHOE DESIGNS and our family of brands can provide employment opportunities within the events industry and beyond. 

Specifically, the craftsmen and creatives — with our resources & their raw talent, there has never been a better opportunity than now to rise to the next level. A career with KEHOE DESIGNS allows the creatives professionals to lay a solid foundation to build their visions and dreams for years to come.

GREATNESS TOGETHER | FAMILY OF BRANDS

The heart of KEHOE DESIGNS lies in the comradery of our teams. We are faced with constant creative challenges we take on together. With trust and tenacity, we collaborate to solve complex problems in real-time. Our method isn’t to take the easy way around but to forge the best way through.

Craftsmen and creatives at KEHOE DESIGNS innovate every day. They are mindful of our clients’ senses of fearlessness and can maneuver their work to embrace the right amount of trend-forward design. How are we going to do that? That is a crucial question in our business. If you already know how to do something, you’ll only be re-creating that ‘something’ old, not innovating ‘something’ new. 

DIVINING DESIGN | ENTERING A NEW CREATIVE ERA

Every time humans have endured difficult periods in history, we reevaluate our methods. What works? What doesn’t? By asking these types of questions, humanity crystalizes new ideas, concepts, and directions for design. Fearlessness emerges as a strength, and the ideas which develop become catalysts for innovation.

Design concepts are constantly evolving as trend and color forecasts are updated. We gain trend intelligence through research that brings fresher, brighter, and more decadent designs to every event environment.

People often ask me how I predict future trends. My reply is, I don’t know because I do not dare to predict. What I do know is that there are signs, insights, and methodologies that help define the mindsets and needs of clients. These are what lead us to future trends.

THE POWER OF COLOR | EVOKES EMOTIONS & BEHAVIORS

Color is a powerful emotional component of life. There is no ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’ color or palette. (A close look at the natural world will show you every color and combination.) What does exist are preferences molded by personality and experience. Color evokes emotion — when producing events at KEHOE DESIGNS, we must style the palette for each client. 

There are times when specific colors ‘feel’ better than others. That is what color trends represent: a contextualized feeling. As time moves forward, critical moments in our culture and history will influence future insights and, therefore, future palettes. It’s our job to elevate those palettes into tangible experiences. Typically, I look two or three years ahead and strategically position KEHOE DESIGNS to be ready for when those moments occur. Those palettes will be released to enliven every client’s style, comfort, budget, and taste.

Curious craftsmen and creatives who constantly wonder, Can I do it…? How can I achieve this…? become true builders and creators. These true builders are confident in their abilities, unintimidated by challenges, eager to hear the voices of others, and enjoy working with multiple production teams to elevate events into true celebrations.

We invite you to bring joy and elevate the human spirit by joining KEHOE DESIGNS.
