We’ve put together a Rock Paper Simple team (and friends!) for Brevard Family Partnership’s Lip Sync Battle and will be performing Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer… as Bon Jovi! We are going all-out, buying (and making) costumes and props, meeting after work to practice, playing the song on endless loop (Joe is going to lose his mind, I’m sure of it!)… now we need YOUR HELP!

This is a fundraiser for Brevard Family Partnership, an amazing organization that believes that “All children deserve to live in safe, nurturing homes where they can feel valued and loved.”.

So how can you help? We need you to buy a seat or two or ten… come support us, and in so doing give back to our incredible community by supporting BFP and the families they serve. You can even have your company sponsor the event! The event in October 21st at 7pm.

We seriously can’t do this without you. It’s more than a fun evening where you get to see Dale DupreeScott EllerJoe SmithBrian Hawkins and myself rock out in 80’s garb… it’s coming together as a community and making a difference. So come on… “take my hand, we’ll make it I swear!!!” Let’s DO THIS!

Welcome to the team, Joe!

Rock Paper Simple’s team is growing and excited to introduce Joe Smith who joins the team as a project manager! Joe also works within RPS’ branding service and is the account manager of multiple accounts here at the office. He joins the team with management, leadership, and marketing experience.

Joe calls Melbourne, Florida his hometown, moving to the sunshine state in 2000 and returning to Melbourne at the end of 2015. He attended Melbourne High School and earned his Associate of Arts from Eastern Florida State College. He continued his education at the University of Florida studying business administration and marketing. After UF he went on to study Christian Ministry and worked as a college pastor in Jacksonville, FL.

Joe likes to keep the mood light and enjoys the fun and creative atmosphere of Rock Paper Simple. In his spare time he will likely be found playing ultimate Frisbee and spending time with family and friends.

 

We dug a little deeper to get to know Joe better. Check out how he answered these fun questions!

What was your dream job when you were growing up?
As a kid, I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian, but that’s just because Animal Planet had all the best shows.

You drank the kool-aid and now you have a superpower. What is it?
Invincibility- come at me bro! Anybody wanna go skydiving?

What is the one thing you can’t possibly live without?
Chocolate. It’s an essential food group!

How do you define, or measure, success?
Success is learning from your experiences, both good and bad, and not giving up until the job is done.

Tell us about something that you are proud of, outside of work.
I really enjoy being involved in my church, First Baptist Church of Melbourne, by doing various types of ministry and service in the community.

 

Welcome to the Team, Isa and Tom!

Rock Paper Simple has two new additions to the team, helping us kick off the new year the right way- with growth and talent that means even more awesomeness in store for 2017!

Tom is a Brevard native who, after meeting the love of his life during a brief exploration of the cold weather and mountains in Wisconsin, returned to sunny Florida with a wife in 2004. With a broad range of experience from graphic design, IT, web marketing, print, and web development, Tom is a total asset and makes a great addition to the Rock Paper Simple Team!

 

Isa’s love for art always lead her to pick up projects that involved artistic expression, often including charity work and projects for friends. She has a degree in Network Technology, and has worked various jobs since graduating, but everything paled in comparison to her passion for design. She is currently perusing another degree in Graphic Design, and her commitment to community and creativity make her a fantastic addition to the Simple Team!

Head Honcho Speaks at Media Magic Intensive

Joshua was one of the mentors and speakers at the Media Magic Intensive this past Saturday and his topic was Making Your Website Marketing-Focused (surprise surprise!). The video below is a snippet from his 45-minute session. With those 45 minutes he crunched in the 7 Steps To Building a Marketing Focused Website presentation, which is typically 1.5 hours (no wonder he is talking so fast!), added some worksheets, and gave the attendees points they could walk away with to apply to their websites right away. Take a look!

Psst! At 2:20, Shannon Gronich spins the camera around… so careful, don’t get too dizzy!

Want to hear Joshua speak? Keep an eye out at one of the upcoming Business Acceleration Summit events, or join us at one of our brand new Digital Refreshments Series events. The first one is scheduled for January!

titan web takeover

Hey there! We are excited to announce that Rock Paper Simple has acquired Titan Web Design in Destin, Florida! It’s not been a secret that Christopher Byron has been working to establish a Destin location these past few months and has taken lead on not only bringing on new team members in that area, locating the perfect office location, but also finding great companies like Titan Web Design to bring into the fold of Rock Paper Simple.

While our headquarters are here in Melbourne, we are looking to establish a physical office location in the Destin area very soon and will be looking to add team members as early as this and next month. For those in the Destin area, Christopher is our local business developer who lives and loves Destin… so he’s your man.

Meet Haley. Newest Member of Team Awesome!

haley-cabre

Haley is the newest addition to Team Awesome. (Yay!) She graduated from U.C.F. with an Interdisciplinary B.A. degree, which she feels accurately reflects her creativity and interest in learning about many different things.

Wait, a degree in what?! Haley… explain what this interdisciplinary thing is!

Haley: “Think Leonardo da Vinci, who beautifully mashed science and art together to create amazing things and solve problems uniquely. He’s basically the father of Interdisciplinary Study. I have a degree in crossing professional knowledge, allowing for more a fluid way of thinking in regard to problem solving.”

Her role here as the Digital Content Coordinator at Rock Paper Simple provides Haley a chance to flex her interdisciplinary muscle. She gets to write content, create and implement social media plans, optimize websites, plan events, analyze SEM data… the list goes on. Her ability to “mash” knowledge to create distinct solutions and create positive results makes her great at what she does… creating and pushing out content for both RPS and our clients.

When not in the office you might find Haley out kayaking, wandering around with friends trying catch Pokemon, or volunteering her time to Ambassador Bullies. If you didn’t find her doing any of those things… then it’s likely she’s at home, covered in flour from rolling croissants (oooh tasty!).

We’re excited to have her creativity and ambition around the office. Welcome to our Team Haley!

Rock-Paper-Simple-Goes-BowlingOn October 16th at 4pm, cut out of work a bit early and hangout with the Rock Paper Simple team at Brunswick Harbour Lanes.

If you get rocking and rolling before 5, they have a deal for two hours of bowling at only $10.95 per person… it’s a few dollars more if you come after 5.

We plan to share plenty of laughs and good times… so don’t miss it! When you get there, ask for the Rock Paper Simple crowd.

Remember that we get together every month and we invite our friends, colleagues, clients and the community to join us! Next month we plan to hit the beach (you better believe frisbee and volleyball will be involved)!
