The principals of two Kansas City agencies, Twentypixel and Stark Collective, have joined our team at Johnny Lightning Strikes Again. Their respective talents in web development and brand strategy are a perfect fit for our ever-growing agency and are already having a tremendous impact on our clients’ creative initiatives.
We Love Ideas
The purpose of this blog is to share things that make us proud, things that make us think, or things that make us react. It is a place for ideas, because we know that the only way an idea can be valuable is if it is shared — if it sparks a debate, changes someone’s mind, or reinforces something they already knew. We love ideas. We live off ideas. The work we do wouldn’t be possible without ideas.
Overall, it’s our goal to contribute to the larger conversation of branding, design, and marketing. Why are they valuable? How can they be done well? How can they have an impact on an individual, a corporation, or a culture? Anyone who is engaged in what they do thinks about their industry, their inspiration, and their philosophy. We sure do, and this blog is a place for us to collect those thoughts and share them with anyone who is interested. If you decide to poke around, please consider joining the conversation — we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Johnny Lightning Strikes Again is seeking someone to be responsible for the planning, coordination and completion of projects, while serving as the primary point of contact between us and our clients.

UPDATE: We’re pleased to say we’ve filled the role, but don’t let that stop you from reaching out. We’re a growing agency and we’re always interested in who our next hire might be.

David Cecil, Johnny Lightning Strikes Again co-owner and director of strategy, was interviewed by Fox 4 News in Kansas City last week and asked to share his thoughts on retail stores using new technology to ‘spy’ on their customers by tracking their movements in their stores.
Deborah Lewis is the Mobile Director at Overstock.com, one of the nation’s leading online retailers. We’ve worked extremely closely with Deborah on Overstock.com’s mobile website and their iPhone, iPad, and Android applications. If anyone can attest to our capabilities when it comes to mobile, it’s her. Here’s what she had to say:

Johnny Lightning Strikes Again is seeking to hire a talented graphic designer to help develop handsome solutions to business problems. We are very serious about doing good work, so it’s not terrible if needing to do your best borders on compulsive. But remember, the best designers find the best ways to work with others – no rock stars, please.
An article written by David Cecil, our Director of Strategy, was featured in this month’s issue of Thinking Bigger, a Kansas City magazine dedicated to helping smart companies think bigger. David’s article focused on a topic that is near and dear to our heart at Johnny Lightning Strikes Again – how to make sure businesses are investing their marketing dollars wisely.
One of the most important questions we answer for our clients is how creative services can be leveraged to achieve their objectives. They know what an agency does, but they want to know what an agency can do for them. Since a lot of creative is subjective, we often find ourselves talking about intangible benefits — customer loyalty, emotional connection, and trust. Intangible benefits aren’t the whole story, however. Creative services, especially web and application development, can also provide a business with functional tools that make life easier.
