  • Four Creative-Industry Men from Denver Are on a Mission to Bring Clean Water to Haiti

    / Comments (1)

    Life is an interesting journey. Tell that to Jason Coates, Derek Reinhardt, Pat Flanigan and Jeremy Pape, four average men dedicated to building an anything but average life.

    Jason is a traveler, dedicated to seeing the world, nothing will hold him back from seeing all that he can see.

    Derek is a photographer, but not the type that stays in a studio. Derek is an adventurer, whose passion for showing you the wild side of life is unmatched.

    Pat is a film production graduate and loves to capture the world through film. He is passionate about travel and sharing his stories and the stories of others along the way.

    Jeremy is a director and entrepreneur. Always rolling, and somehow finding the greatest attributes in people, Jeremy showcases that through his honest visuals and accomplishments that require a team of polished go-getters.

    What brings all four of these together is passion. Not content on traveling just to travel, planning the next "big thing," these four have found a way to make the adventures count.

    Haiti + Clean Water + Joy.

    The people of Haiti are historically resilient in the face of need but that has never stopped them from living with joy. A particular need is clean, drinkable water and we have been lucky enough to team up with RainCatcher to fit this need.

    RainCatcher is providing water filters for them to bring on the trip to but this is just part of the equation.

    The last part is JOY. Joy is what keeps these four men going, and the same goes for the amazing Haitians they are going to be visiting. Along the journey they will be documenting in great detail the amazing travels they experience. Using connections for their large reach, the team has found an orphanage to help, communities to bring clean water to and a local hip hop artist to shoot a music video for! The JOY will in fact be in abundance and the story will be real.

  • #PackagingLaunch: Perfect Bar - Via Denver's LRXD

    / Comments (0)

    The Perfect Bar story began when a family of ten and a bunch of barbells all piled into a motor home and roamed the country for four years. During this time, a nutrition bar was born. One that was so different, you can only find it in the refrigerated section of your favorite store.

    Through their 7-bar package redesign, LRXD wanted to share their unique story and show the world just how “grounded in perfection” this brand actually is. Perfect Bar’s new look has already caught the industry’s eye, and distribution numbers are quickly on the rise. Next up: an overhaul of the brand’s site.

    Imbibe and the Colorado Brewers Guild have teamed up to throw the first ever Collaboration Festival, the headline event of Colorado Craft Beer Week. As one of the four Lovibond Series events, Collaboration Festival will showcase the release of over 20 Colorado collaboration beers, all being unveiled at the event. Each beer featured at Collaboration Festival will be created by at least one Colorado Brewers Guild member, with other participating breweries coming from near and far. The other breweries will be from both in and out of state and some collaborations involve more than 5 breweries.

    In the spirit of collaboration, the creators teamed up with The Forum Stories to share the background behind the event. They shot the video at the brew day between Denver Beer Co. and Upslope — both movers and shakers in the Colorado brew scene. Get tickets before they're gone.
