We used to have a hole here at JLSA. It was big and blobby and stuff—we didn’t exactly know how to describe it, but we knew it needed to be filled. That’s when Caroline Young stepped in. She’s our new copywriter and strategist, and she knew just what to say.
We plucked her from the top of the Missouri School of Journalism’s Strategic Communication program, and now she’s here to handle all our copy needs (and some strategy work too).
Want to get to know her better? We asked her questions. And she gave us answers—some well-worded ones.
The month of May has been a busy one. This month, we marked the end of a phenomenal project by launching a brand new website for KVC Health Systems—a locally-based nonprofit organization that does really great work for kids and families throughout the country.
After closely working with them for more than a year, KVC now has a family of six websites all newly branded with a handmade look and a message that “People Matter.”
Great project management is what ensures work gets done and we don’t all go insane. Needless to say, we value both of those so we thought it was high time to introduce the world (since everyone in the world obviously reads our blog) to the woman that keeps Johnny Lightning Strikes Again sane.
As people who love downtown Kansas City, we believe there’s no more important project for the future of the city than the construction of the streetcar starter line. So when we were selected to design the new kcstreetcar.org, we were both tremendously excited and extremely proud.
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.
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. This special someone, possibly you, will be an essential part of our team, driving every one of our projects from beginning to end and ensuring we maintain great relationships with 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.
JOHNNY LIGHTNING STRIKES AGAIN is a full service agency in downtown Kansas City’s Crossroads neighborhood. Our focus on design and marketing is backed by a process that emphasizes strategy and smart application of budget.

We are looking for developers with a passion for making things. As a member of our team, you will be involved in projects from the earliest concepting phase all the way through deployment. Hopefully you like to figure stuff out and learn something new every day.
Finally, we need candidates that want to be a part of our company and culture as much as they want to do amazing work. We value our team, and we want creative developers in this role to feel like an important part of it.
We offer medical, dental, vision, paid time off, and a good time.

UPDATE: Since this announcement was made, our relationship with Tivol has evolved and our role in their marketing efforts is now focused entirely on their website.
