Benefit Concert Presenting The Country Music Project

Dallas and I, at Harmonized Brain Centers, would like to invite you to an upcoming Benefit Concert that we have been planning for a little while.  It all started when Dallas bid on a 7 Piece band called "The Country Music Project" from out of the Denver area at the Lutheran Valley Ranch camps benefit concert they had several months ago at Boot Barn Hall and he won the bid!  The band is excellent and we wanted to share it with our new neighborhood so we are having it at the Gleneagle Square located at Gleneagle and Struthers.

We, too, wanted to raise money for a great cause so we chose Disability Connections, who help those individuals who have a Developmental Disability get the funding they need for services that traditional insurance will not pay for.

Monthly Education - August 2022 - Social Media Trends of 2022

Event Name:
Monthly Education Series - Social Media Trends of 2022

Description:
Social Media is dynamic with perpetually increasing channels and tools. One the one hand, it's contributing to more informed, engaged, and loyal customers. On the other, the sheer number of messages is overwhelming, leaving many social media marketing efforts lost in the noise. Social media is a must for many businesses, but what is the best use for your business? How are your customers using it? How can you connect with them and become their trusted resource for the products and services you provide? How can you enlist them to voluntarily share your business with their own networks? Join social media guru, author, and non-practicing attorney, Lauren Hug, for a deep dive into the latest social media trends you should be aware of for your business.

This class will be IN PERSON at the Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce in Monument, CO

Facilitated by:

Monthly Education - September 2022 - Does Your Logo Suck?!

Event Name:
Monthly Education Series - Does Your Logo Suck?!

Description:

Maybe your logo looks outdated, poorly executed, or just overall sucky. Perhaps it’s a matter of poor balance, awkward spacing, clashing colors, unreadable typography… or all of the above.

But more often than not, whether or not you think your logo sucks, it was likely created without a foundational brand strategy. That’s where we come in.

On September 27, 2022, Join the brand strategy experts at Neon Pig Creative to re-assess your logo from square one. We’ll dig deep into your brand’s soul and substance with the ultimate goal of creating a road map that will improve your logo from “suck” to “sleek”.

We’ll touch on your brand’s mission, vision, and values… those foundational aspects that influence the overarching aesthetics of your brand. We’ll also think outside the box through interactive brainstorming sessions, allowing you to assess your brand from angles you never considered.

But this won’t all be abstract marketing exercises. We’ll also get down to brass tacks and talk about some of the literal qualities that make for a strong logo. We’ll look at some of the best logos designed by the best designers of all time to discover common threads. From legibility and scalability to balance and contrast, we’ll delve into several criteria that will help you assess once and for all… does your logo suck?!

After taking this course, we’re confident it will only be a matter of time before it absolutely does not.

This class will be IN PERSON at the Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce in Monument, CO
