This collection will help you understand my
skillset. A detailed manager with creative
talents. A thinker and a doer. A unique blend
of skills that separate me from the pack.
In the Spring of 2009, a college friend and I co-founded a marketing consulting
agency, Unity Marketing. While experiencing many failures, we persisted, pitched
countless local businesses, and landed four paying clients in six months.

The Farm’s logo needed to be simple, timeless, and
applicable to both baseball and softball. I incorporated
an F letterform, many shapes from a ball diamand,
repetitive lines and gave it a nice active stance.
Choosing a type to match such a bold logo was a lot of fun.
Seen here, Newtown bold italic was the type of choice. It’s
strong, yet has nice curved lines which fit perfectly with the
logo. It also communicates a balance of tough and caring.
The FarmThe Farm is a $5 million baseball and softball complex with 12 outdoor and 2 indoor
diamonds. Headed up by the lead scout of the Chicago White Sox, Mike Shirley, the
complex was in need of an identity. Below you will see some elements of their new look.
Because of the dynamic nature of the word farm, it was
important to have a descriptive tagline. We did extensive
research and determined The Farm is in the business of
growing athletes; both on the field and off.
Logo with tagline. The F in Farm fits nicely within the
floating piece on the logo. Also, notice how the eye
moves from the bottom through the negative white
space in the logo and towards the right.
With multiple revenue streams and a dynamic target, we considered
an intricate brand structure to differentiate functions. However, for
the sake of consistency, we used a single logo, typeface, and color
palette. To distinguish elements, growing athletes is substituted.
The primary palette is dynamic and timeless. A strong,
deep, and classic green nicely communicates durability
and growth. It’s complimented by clean and neutral
shades of black and grey to strike a balance.

participation in the Cream Puff Baseball League. You were lazy,
afraid to slide, picked dandelions in left ﬁeld, and struck out
43 times. But we’re still proud of you. Everyone is a winner here.
Through such participation you have learned the qualities of entitlement,
dishonesty, and being a cream puff... just the kind of kids we love!

Asics MuncianaAsics Munciana, America’s first and most recognizable volleyball club, recently
completed a 50,000 sq. ft. sports complex. In need of sponsors, my partner and I
formulated a pricing strategy, created an investor booklet, and scheduled meetings
with local businesses. The result? $22,000 raised in less than two months.

Warner University Compe3tors
I found that Warner had the
lowest tuition among its main
competitors. The only two lower
were an online school and a
community college. As part of the
new position, plans were made
to hike tuition by 15% each year
during the 5 year plan.
While developing a strategic plan at Warner University, I was primarily responsible
for the situation analysis. I also assumed the responsibility to coordinate the purchase
and installation of a $20,000 aesthetics improvement to the school’s entrance.
While at JDA I was repsonsible for the situation analysis for Answers in Genesis’ new
attraction; the world’s first lifesize biblical Ark. The research I explored dealt primarily
with traveler trends, and demographics to provide insight for a future marketing plan.
This map is part of the situational analysis for Answers in Genesis. I found research indicating there were
distinct travel patterns dependent upon the distance being traveled; this map provides a visual.

“Smart and discerning, Andy Kennedy is a young man with a very bright future ahead of him. He is unique in that he is
thoughtful and compassionate, while strategic and precise. He’s a thinker. And he’s a doer. A very rare combination.
More than anything, Andy loves life and the people in his. Combined with his intense desire to participate in great brand
development, he is worth investing in. You’ll never have to worry about Andy competing. He’s a winner at heart and an
exceptional team player. Andy is going to be an excellent ad exec.”
“In late 2009 Andy Kennedy, co-founder of Unity Marketing, approached me with several well thought out ideas on how
to improve my dealerships identity in the market and to sell more vehicles. Upon giving them further direction, Andy and
Chance created a new promotion and proffessionally presented it to our management staff in two weeks. The idea tied
hunting season to a truck sales promotion and used text messaging to measure the effectiveness. The promotion was a success.
We outsold every other dealer in the region that month. Andy and Chance made the promotion fun and creative and
worked well with my staff. If I were asked to do business with Unity Marketing again, I would do so without reservation.”

“Andy Kennedy has worked for me in a number of different capacities. Most recently, Andy formed a marketing
company with a fellow peer at Anderson University. Our volleyball club employed their firm to sell sponsorships on a
commision basis. Even though we gave minimal direction, their results far exceeded our expectations. They prepared
the sales materials, identified the prospects, made their own appointments, closed the sales and worked with the
graphics vendor to create the banners and court logos. I have seen a lot of Andy Kennedy in his young life to know
he’s going places. Just point him in the right direction, give him an incentive, and get out of his way.”
Tim Kuzma, Financial Advisor, Raymond James, Owner, Munciana Volleyball Club
“Andy is an original. He has that rare combination of creative talent and management capability. I have no doubt that
whatever career choices Andy makes in his life, he will approach them with zeal and determination and he will not quit
until he is the very best. Andy is a very likable person with natural leadership qualities. In short, Andy is the real deal.”
