Make ‘em laugh or go home.

It was a tour of the local PBS station that got Kevin, a born-and-raised Kansas kid,  hooked on all things video production. Kevin majored in Electronic Mass Media with an emphasis in photography at Washburn University. He quickly rose up the ladder from director/photographer at Topeka’s NBC station to production specialist for the City of Topeka. No matter where he is, Kevin is always happiest with a camera in hand.

The future of marketing is connecting people.

Tom’s passion and expertise for marketing began as a musician. When he wasn’t on the road, Tom took various jobs and discovered he had an aptitude for understanding business. He went on to drastically increase productivity for corporations like Walmart and Louisiana Pacific. Businesses thrive when his experience and an organic multimedia approach to advertising and marketing are combined.

“There is nothing you do that isn’t sending a message, one way or another.”


Our mission says it all: From product to promotion, we create and elevate brands to become household names. We strive to create powerful, meaningful brand identities by developing stunning logos, dynamic websites, engaging videos, and comprehensive public relations campaigns.

Thrive’s team of PR experts, graphic designers, web designers, producers, and programmers pull out all the stops to elevate your brand. We won’t stop until you’re a household name.

People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories, and magic.


PR is all about knowledge, experience, and connection – and Thrive isn’t lacking in any of those departments. We have the editorial service quality that allows our clients the leverage other brands simply don’t possess.

We specialize in all things public relations, including press conferences, campaign management, reputation management, media booking, press release services, media relations, event planning, editorial and message management, and community relations.

The soul never thinks without a picture.


A picture is worth a thousand words – so what are your graphics saying about your brand? We live in a visual world and Thrive has the wealth of experience needed to make sure your business’s graphics are speaking the right language.

A professional looking logo can send a powerful message to your customers: it lets them know you’re serious about delivering quality. We can help with something as small as a logo update or go big with a full-blown graphic makeover.

No matter what you do, your job is to tell your story.


A blend of artist and scientist, our photographers and videographers know the delicate balance needed to take the perfect photo or create the perfect video. Thrive is the production machine you need to create stunning, crisp, professional photos and videos.

Thrive also offers a one-stop solution for filmmakers. Whether you’re a writer, producer, or director, we can help trim away some of the unnecessary costs related to production. Let our thirty years of production experience help you bring your masterpiece to life.

What separates design from art is that design is meant to be functional.


A quality website can inspire confidence and trust in your brand, generate interest, and drive sales. But having a beautiful and visually stunning website is only half of the equation – you also need a top-notch team of back-end developments to make sure the website functions as brilliantly as it looks.

Thrive is at the forefront of creating engaging, interactive, and stunning websites. Our stellar team of web designers, coders, and SEO specialists will make your website dreams a reality.


Whether it’s graphic design, photography, video, or web design, we exist to create beautiful things for you. Feel free to browse some of our work and get a first-hand look at the incredible services we have to offer!
