Bicycle advocacy is personal to Kevin Whited. Between bicycling racing and going to get groceries, he has logged 1,000s of miles on his bike over the past 15 years. From his bicycle seat, he has seen first hand the need to educate drivers and cyclists on how to share the road and how to get along.
I have a love-hate relationship with taglines. As a copywriter, that might be a blasphemous thing for me to say. For decades, taglines have been one of the profession's most revered forms, the true test of ability that separates the copy aces from the amateurs. But recently, I've been questioning their relevance.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but some people in pretty high places have had some pretty high praise for Indy recently. My Facebook and Twitter feeds have made it hard for me to miss.

Meet Kate Wickwire. She's Pivot's new copywriter/researcher. Instead of searching the job boards and sifting through resumes, we found her on Twitter. Through successful personal branding, Kate created an online presence that really caught our eye.
Meet Melissa Martin. She's Pivot's most senior Art Director, and she also happens to be the newest president of AIGA Indianapolis. She enjoys beer, yoga, and Fleetwood Mac, and today, she took some time out of her busy schedule to tell us why the future of our fair city could rest in the hands of local designers.
If you've seen the Pivot team around town lately looking more dapper than usual, you probably saw us on the way to a fundraiser. Recently, we've had the privilege of cheering on our clients at a few of their events, and boy, do they know how to put on a great fundraiser.
