About Kickstand
Awarded 100% of business from word of mouth, Kickstand is a nationally acclaimed, two-man agency in Dallas, TX. Founded by a Richards Group alum and an artist-turned-coder-turned-marketer, their work is known for hitting above its weight class and garnering outsized attention for their clients. Kickstand is especially attracted to the less self-serious side of the business, finding power in using either unexpected humor or unexpected heart. Occasionally even both at once.

About Clio Entertainment
Clio Entertainment, formerly The Clio Key Art Awards, is the original and definitive distinction in creative communications for the entertainment business. Born in 1971 to celebrate the best in film marketing, the awards program became a Clios property in 2015, and with partner The Hollywood Reporter continues expanding its reach – across movies, TV and gaming. It reflects a field that through advances in technology and integration of new specialties, routinely recasts the notion of excellence in entertainment marketing.
