Case Study

The Nevada Secretary of State

The Nevada Secretary of State and KPS3 partnered together to launch a statewide campaign within a manner of weeks to raise awareness of Nevada’s first mail-in election. At the time, a lot was going on in the world, to say the least. With the pandemic causing many adjustments to daily life, it was important we delivered a campaign that connected to people in a light-hearted way that would break through the political noise. So, we asked Nevadans to “Mail It In” this year. And even though the polls were still open for early voting and on election day, 98% of all votes cast came via mail-in ballots, which led to one of the highest-participated primary votes in Nevada’s history.

Three decades of growth. 30 years of adapting. It’s been an incredible journey. This year we also hired our 50th employee making us an official mid-sized business. That was only a few months ago, and we’re already close to reaching 60 people. It’s exciting to see the ongoing growth, as well...

Your greatest ally. And worst enemy.

Fear and its omnipresent role during the formation, growth and success of KPS3 cannot be understated. Its fingers touched every higher risk decision, missed opportunity, and created a desire to over-control everything humanly possible. And sometimes inhumanly possible. I have always been in tune with fear. All my life. It’s been a motivator, accelerator, hard driver and protector. I never would have created KPS3 if I hadn’t been afraid of stagnating in the business I had been working (even...
