For the season finale of CMYKC, we invited Clifton Alexander and Chase Wilson of Reactor back for a second episode. Reactor has sponsored our show for the last few episodes, so it seemed only fitting to celebrate the end our our two-year season by talking with some of our favorite folks in the industry!
Andrew Salter, our guest for this week, is an incredibly talented designer and the art director at Axiom Strategies. Andrew’s mail campaigns have made a tremendous impact on the political scene, and he continues to push the limits of design within the industry. In addition to political design, Andrew kicks major ass as a motion designer, composer, surfer, family man and more.
Huge thank you to Reactor Design Studio for being our sponsor for this week's episode! Check them out at ReactorKC.com!Read More

"Designers are naturally curious people." We push the boundaries and constantly seek ways to improve our work and further the visibility of our work for our clients. REACTOR Design Studio pushes the boundaries as hard and as far as the bigger marketing firms in town, and they do it with enthusiasm as bright as their signature orange studio decor. This interview with Clifton Alexander and Chase Wilson will leave you meloned. <- You don't get that joke yet, but you will. Shake off your NYE hangover and enjoy the 27th episode of CMYKC.Read More
We had the pleasure of meeting Aaron Weidner at the FBOS event that AAF-KC hosted a few weeks ago. Aaron dazzled us with his quick copy critiques and on-the-spot thinking. The more we got to know him, the more intrigued we became. Aaron is a painter turned copywriter, and now works freelance while constructing custom pieces of furniture from reclaimed materials.Read More

Listen to the episode to find out how you can get involved with the revamped Native!
