Employees Honor Founder with
25th Anniversary Custom Book

Employees of Brinkmann Constructors wanted to honor their company’s founder in a special way as the firm’s 25th anniversary celebration neared, so its history celebration team met privately with Casey Communications to brainstorm ideas and concept a plan. Then Marie Casey geared up to fast-track the research, writing, image assembly, graphic design, printing and hand-binding of a custom volume chronicling the story of the firm from inception to its current status as one of the nation’s Top 100 design-build firms.

Casey initially shaped an outline, then drafted the first of seven chapters so the graphic designer could get a head start on conveying the chosen graphic theme, one that reflected Founder Bob Brinkmann’s passion for Daniel Boone and the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

The fact that Casey Communications had diligently maintained decades-old media files associated with its media relations work for Brinkmann over a span of 24 years sped the process by giving ready accessibility to needed data, photos and other records. Additionally, Brinkmann’s history celebration team was highly responsive, quickly providing feedback and tracking down needed details. The final 11-inch-by-11-inch book totaled 80 full-color pages. It was bound in hand-sewn leather and ornamented with Bob Brinkmann’s hand-stamped signature and an arrowhead closure.

When Bob Brinkmann received the book from employees, he was rendered speechless.
