Welcome to the August edition of our eNewsletter. Inside you will find BD&E happenings, ideas we would like to share and, of course, the Bella update.

­­­­­­­­­­­­Southpaw. Made in the USA.      

Spotlight on Southpaw Enterprises.      

Southpaw works closely with occupational therapists across the country to research, develop and manufacture sensory integration and neurodevelopmental products for the clinic and classroom.
When BD&E first started working with Southpaw, our goal was to bring its brand to life. We refreshed the brand identity, and we've begun to implement an integrated marketing communications strategy, starting with new print materials.
Hot off the press is the Southpaw catalog featuring products manufactured in the company's Dayton, Ohio facility. The catalog has become a symbol of the Southpaw brand and is a go-to resource for therapists and clients across the country who utilize Southpaw products. Our goal was to align the catalog with the new brand and to present products in a clean and easy-to-find format. Next up is a re-engineered website and additional catalogs to represent expanded product lines and brand offerings.  

@ BD&E
When in Rome...

Homemade gelato, exceptional art and Italian leather goods ----  it's every college student's dream! Sadie Martinez (pictured on the right), daughter of BD&E Executive Vice President Kristina Martinez, spent the summer studying abroad in Florence, Italy, where she lived among locals while taking courses at Richmond, The American International University. Sadie was also able to spend long weekends traveling to Rome, Venice, Pompeii, Cinque Terre, and the Amalfi Coast. She headed back to Miami University for her junior year this fall, but we doubt that dining hall food will ever be the same!
 Catching Up with Bella
Bella's Bucket Challenge.

Bella couldn't help but get involved in the good cause that created a viral sensation ---- the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! We donated to the ALS Association, then grabbed our ice bucket. Kristina Martinez did the honors, giving Bella an icy afternoon shower. The nominees were up to Bella, and she chose Edie, Fairmont Pittsburgh's Canine Ambassador, Diablo de Jong of Bethany College, and Therapy Dogs International. Kris and Bella will also join team Angie's Angels in the upcoming walk to defeat ALS.
