Extra, extra, read all about it! Good read alert!

This is an article written by the lovely Meg Guillory.  She is a rock-star account executive on our team. She also has a shoe collection that would make any woman drool (if women drooled, of course).

Her article, titled “Marketing Collateral 101,” breaks down how to create effective marketing materials that make you STAND OUT amongst your competitors.

THE.BIG.TWO.ZERO.

Well, it’s official. We’re not one, but TWO decades old. That’s right, Rudkin Productions celebrated our 20th year in February. We forgive you for not sending us a birthday card…

Rudkin Productions was founded in 1992. Kathy Rudkin started the company in Oklahoma before moving it to the Texas Hill Country, where it has been operating and growing for the last 17 years. Twenty years of hard work, elbow grease and hundreds of pots of coffee later, we’re still growing and are stronger than ever.   From the very beginning, we have been guided by the belief that we can do ANYTHING, no matter how technologically challenging or graphically complex the project is. We’d love to use our experience in the advertising and web production world to help YOU and YOUR business succeed.

Take a trip down memory lane with us. What else happened in 1992, our founding year?

Minnesota’s Mall of America, the LARGEST shopping mall in the country, was constructed. It was 78 acres. (Note to self: when visiting, wear comfortable walking shoes).

Nicoderm, the first Nicotine transdermal patch for smokers to quit smoking was released.

Johnny Carson left the Tonight Show. Bette Midler was his final guest, Jay Leno was his replacement.

“Eric Clapton Goes Unplugged,” one of his most famous albums, was released.

Oooops! US President George Bush became ill and vomited on Japanese Prime Minister’s Lap.

Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series.

Washington Redskins won Superbowl XXVI.

Alladdin was the top grossing film. (Great, now I’ll be singing “a whole new worlllllllld!!!!!” for the rest of the day.

Bill Clinton was elected as President of the United States

A loaf of bread cost 71 cents.

A gallon of gas cost $1.05. (WOW, take me back to ’92!).

Do you remember where you were in 1992?  We were at the start of an incredible adventure. Here’s to the next twenty!
