Because we’re proud of our people and work, and want to acknowledge our team whenever we can, we like these agency round-up pieces—where we share in the good news with friends and clients. Buckle up, we’ve got more than a few updates for you since our last check-in.

Top Honors in Public Relations
Every year, the Volunteer Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) recognizes the hard work of its members with the V awards. Designsensory was recognized with four wins in the 2017 V Awards: 

New Websites and Old Friends
A loveable addition to the DS website family, Brewsters Bark & Bed was a fun and furry project; Champion Physical Therapy needed an engaging, inspiring way to showcase its growing family of clinics in Tennessee, Virginia and Kentucky; we’ve updated an old friend with the bigger and better Pomona Swap Meet; And we updated the site for Forensic Anthropology Consulting Services, Inc. with a new, responsive design.

Furthering our mission to showcase the talent and creative opportunity in the great state of Tennessee, we launched a new directory for creative talent in the state of Tennessee for the Tennessee Entertainment Commission,, and joined it with its current site, which had a fresh reskin. Our partner, Popfizz, provided some great videos for these, too. Check that playlist out.

More Faces in Familiar Spaces
The last couple of months brought more members to the Designsensory work family! Please join us in welcoming senior media buyer/planner Jessica Johnson, front-end developer Phil Tune and project management assistant Rebekah Jackson. We’ve also welcomed Sam Yakowenko, PR & Social Media Intern, and Ethan Kearn, Production Assistant Intern. Phoebe Spooner, who served a marketing coordinator intern, has also joined us full-time in the same position since her graduation in late May.

The DSers Went Down to Georgia
Joseph Nother, Lindsay Miller, Mary Blair, Taylor Walters and Matt Montgomery headed south to Augusta to scout locations and collect new photography for our client, Augusta Convention & Visitor’s Bureau. Stayed tuned for exciting creative in the future.

Pinewood and the Goose
Designsensory officially turned 15 last year. To celebrate and kick off the next era of creativity, collaboration and general fun, we did what all professional workplaces do: we went bowling! After knocking down some pins, we enjoyed a delectable meal at one of downtown Knoxville’s iconic gastronomic hot spots, The Crown and Goose. Here’s to another 15 years, DS! Just for fun, here are some more snaps from the night.
