Lindsey Nickel-de la O Inspired Tampa Bay to Be More

Our very own Creative Director, Lindsey Nickel-de La O, showed Ignite Tampa Bay the power of MORE a few weeks ago at the Cuban Club Theater in Ybor City. She delivered a powerful five-minute presentation to a sold-out crowd of around 350 people.

Lindsey spoke about the “I AM More” educational platform, which she helped develop last year with Girls Inc. of Sarasota. The curriculum can be used to empower girls of all ages and directly combats negative media messaging, bullying, eating disorders and challenges girls face at home.

Lindsey’s emotional presentation sparked real-time responses from the crowd via Twitter.

“It was an honor to present at Ignite Tampa Bay on a topic so close to my heart— empowering girls to ‘be more’ and to be their best selves,” said Nickel-de la O.

Lindsey and Girls Inc. of Sarasota hope the “I AM More” curriculum will be implicated in schools across the country. “This program has the potential to increase self-esteem, courage and community in girls across the country,” said Lindsey. “Presenting at Ignite helped broaden the reach of this program and hopefully made some people consider contacting Girls Inc. of Sarasota or myself to get involved.”

24 Hours of Happy

 

 

“It might seem crazy what we’re 'bout to say, but this year Nickel’s come a long way. Because we’re happy!”

The past few weeks, people in cities around the world have filmed music videos for Pharrell Williams’ hit song, “Happy” as part of the United Nation’s celebration of the International Day of Happiness on March 20th. The team at Nickel Communications decided that it was Sarasota’s turn! Lindsey, our very own Creative Director, planned, filmed, and helped edit the video to show the world why our city is so unique.

We recruited help from local performers from Asolo Repertory Theatre, the Players Theater, girls from Girls Inc. of Sarasota, students from Ringling College of Art + Design, and several other Sarasota residents and visitors. Most of the filming was done one Sunday, March 23, at locations including Siesta Key Beach, Five Points Park, the Palm Avenue Garage, Bayfront Park, and the Ringling Bridge. The end product, “Sarasota: Destination Happy” showcases just a snippet of what makes Sarasota unique.

Since uploading the video to YouTube on Thursday, March 27th, we’ve had over 4,300 views and over 75 likes! Over 70 happy people have also shared the video from our Facebook page and we were even featured in This Week in Sarasota.

Storedrobe: Coming To A Mobile Phone Near You

b2ap3_thumbnail_2-STOREDROBE_LOGO.jpg

We are proud to announce that Storedrobe, pitched by Nickel Communications Creative Director and Partner Lindsey Nickel and Sheena Koshy, was named the winner of the Glidea Pitch 2013. The Glide Interactive expert team will develop the app together with Lindsey and Sheena for free, and ten percent of revenue will be donated to a charity agreed upon by all parties. Storedrobe will be the first app incubated and launched through the Creative Cultivation Project, the innovation arm of Nickel Communications.

“Glidea Pitch has been an awesome experience,” said Lindsey. “We are excited to partner with Glide Interactive in bringing Storedrobe to market!”

Storedrobe is the brainchild of Lindsey Nickel, Travis Miller, Austin Allbritton and Sheena Koshy created while working on StartupBus Southeast. Storedrobe hopes to answer the age old question – I am looking at a closet full of clothes, why do I have nothing to wear? Storedrobe allows users to track their wardrobe, match it to future purchases, and get advice from style mavens. The app takes the guesswork out of looking great.

“We envision a social component to this app that would make it truly unique,” said Sheena. “This would allow users the option to not just carry around a virtual wardrobe, but also their own circle of virtual stylists.”
