Atlanta Tastemaker Magazine Launches to Perfect Appeal

This past Friday, I was honored to attend the launch of the newest magazine in Atlanta, Atlanta Tastemaker Magazine.  A magazine dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of Atlanta's entrepreneurs, social innovators and community motivators with their inside stories of who they are and what inspires them to keep this city culturally relevant and diverse. It was at a very beautiful location - Rooftop 866 at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Atlanta. The people that attended were magical and gave it a really nice and fun energy!

I had the pleasure of meeting the Founder & Publisher, Tiffini Gatlin about two months ago at a client's launch party and we stayed in touch! I even had the great opportunity to write a couple of articles for the magazine's Fall Family issue. Editorial Director, Alisha Gordon, was extremely instrumental in helping Tiffini with such an amazing launch and you could tell Alisha was exhaling from all the hard work by the way she laughed, loved and worked the crowd Friday night! It was her birthday as well, so happy birthday again, Alisha!!

Media, Media & MORE Media!

It's been a great month for clients of T.MORRISON AGENCY as we launched into the month of August, which astrologically, is calling for Mercury to be in Retrograde much of the month, which means communication will be delayed or snarled and even garbled. But for us, communication is actually what we're all about this month!

Starting off, Jersey Girl Sports, an online multimedia lifestyle brand for female sports fans, the hottest online sports and web TV destination created for women by women was on CBS Better Mornings giving ladies a play-by-play of football now that we know we will have an NFL Season.  The ladies will host their Atlanta-based 1st & Flirty at Hudson Grille on September 18th with celebrity athletes and other Atlanta's who's who. Tickets are only $20, so ladies let's get our Football on!

Ming Gregory of Color Blind International got her spotlight in the Fall issue of Sheen Magazine (p.47), a national publication dedicated to discussing issues from the African-American woman's perspective.  Ming dishes on Interracial dating and why she believes love really is color blind, so pick up your copy today!

Also, Dr. Nathaniel Johnson, celebrity cosmetic surgeon based in Atlanta is featured in Nip Notes of Sheen Magazine where he outlines the points to keep in mind when looking for a cosmetic surgeon (p.45). Dr. Johnson is also featured in this month's Kraze Magazine with the ever-so-sexy Romeo on the front cover and Kore Magazine's "Skin & Beauty" issue respectively with the sexy Lance Gross on the front cover! Dr. Johnson continues to enlighten us on how to go about enhancing our assets and such in both magazines and he should know since he's Atlanta's #1 rated celebrity cosmetic surgeon!

Client Linda Cox, author and humanitarian had a successful book signing and art exhibit at Emerging Art Scene in Atlanta on July 31st.  Make sure to check out her media interviews and a summary of the event on her site!

The Experience of Rwanda through One Hundred Days

On Sunday, we held an art exhibit at Emerging Art Scene Gallery in Castleberry Hill for the nonprofit organization, One Hundred Days that featured author/humanitarian Linda Cox and Miss America 2008 Kirsten Haglund.  The event was was organized to help raise funds to build the first pediatric hospital in Rwanda through the selling of beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry and home decor.

Linda Cox was also there to promote her book, They Had to Run, which is the story of her friends and co-partners of the organization, Simon & Kedress Nziramakenga. The children's book gives us a first hand account of how the Rwandan genocide got started and why the building of this hospital is so important.

Guests enjoyed wine, compliments of Rex Goliath and must admit their Free Range Red wine was an instant hit!  We also enjoyed visual presentations by Linda Cox including a book reading and Miss America, Kirsten Haglund shared her experience when she visited Rwanda recently with the nonprofit organization.

We want to thank our media partners, Gary Gross of Sandy Springs Radio, Tina Douglas of V103's Community Affairs Programming  and Jennifer Green of 1160 AM's Women on the Move for interviews.

Enjoy the pics below!
