New Employees, Dr. Susan Kohls, Smartop, Patti’s Anniversary
New Trade Show Booth for Leisure Concepts Makes a Splash in Vegas
Earlier this month, Jean Klündt and Diane Mahan made it to Vegas with the new trade show booth Klündt | Hosmer designed for Leisure Concepts and their new product Smartop, which was set up at the International Pool, Spa and Patio Show at Mandalay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Walking into the convention center, it was apparent that Leisure Concepts made a big impact. As expected, blue, aqua and white dominated the show floor, so the unique two-sided, bold-colored booth we designed stood out among the others. Since we're not about the expected, the 50 foot by 70 foot booth included a mirrored layout, featuring a striking green side with a strong feminine silhouette that introduced the new Smartop spa cover, and a strongly branded orange and blue side for Leisure Concepts spa accessories.
While doing some people-watching, it was clear that attendees did a noticeable double-take as they walked by the booth, then couldn’t keep their eyes off the design – it really drew people into the booth, which gave Leisure Concepts staff the opportunity to sell their products to dealers who came from all over the world.
Dr. Susan Kohls Unveils a New Building, Brand and Website
It's always like Christmas around the office when a client's website goes live. Launching Dr. Susan Mahan Kohls' site was no different. The colors of the site reflect the warm and inviting colors in both the new brand package we designed and her office interior. The site provides patients with a personal look at her practice, including an introduction to her associate Dr. Frank Lynn Wright and her staff, while featuring important information and resources. Dr. Kohls' South Hill Spokane office is easily accessible at 2020 E 29th Avenue.
After the recent launch of Dr. Kohls’ website, she told us, “I am extremely thrilled with my new website. It reflects our philosophy of practice exactly as I imagined it would. Everyone at Klündt | Hosmer was so professional and easy to work with. I appreciate all the research that was done to design my site to be user friendly and informational to my current patients and to patients looking for a new dental home.”
Celebrating 15 Years of Patti!Patti Nichols is Klündt | Hosmer’s behind-the-scenes doer of all things financial, or really anything for that matter. She is responsible for managing the office and handling accounts receivable and payable. If you have received an invoice or a check from us in the past 15 years, you have received it from Patti.
And that’s the point of this Spotlight story: Patti just celebrated her 15th anniversary at Klündt | Hosmer and we couldn’t let that milestone go unrecognized. As our longest-term employee, Patti has been with the firm through the majority of its history. Her expertise in managing our financial software and accounts keeps us running efficiently and profitably. She also bakes killer birthday cakes (a.k.a. “Patti Cakes”) and makes sure the most essential (and fun!) office supplies are stocked, which makes our staff incredibly grateful and functional.
Congratulations and thank you, Patti – it’s been a great 15 years working with you!
Two New Hires Bring the Fountain of Youth to K|H
We’re very excited to boast about the latest additions to our team: Katie Kolahi, Account Coordinator and Tyler Kracht, Designer.
Katie worked with us as an intern this summer after receiving her BA in Communication in Advertising at Washington State University. We liked having her around so much that we offered her an Account Coordinator position. Katie is from the Seattle area and decided that Spokane is the place where she wanted to start her career. She is detail-oriented, creative, and a real pleasure to work with.
Tyler came to us from a graphic design position at Pierpoint Media. Before that, he studied at Alexandria Tech College in Minnesota where he won multiple ADDY awards for his design work. Tyler is a hard worker and talented designer, and brings a background in progressive design and photography to our team. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious.
We are excited to have both Katie and Tyler on our team, and encourage you to stop and say hello to each of them next time you’re in the office.
