Visionworks Marketing Group, an award-winning advertising and marketing agency, is pleased to announce the addition of Kevin Carlson to its staff as an account manager. Technically, we call him Mr. Write. Carlson joins Visionworks after more than a decade in various roles in journalism.

Upon graduating from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism in 2003, Carlson spent four years in southern Florida covering sports for two newspapers as both a sportswriter and a sports editor. Aside from an award-winning writing career, Carlson has experience in design, photography and editing. In the years since leaving Florida’s heat for Missouri’s humidity, he has written freelance articles for the Columbia (Mo.) Business Times, Intertec Publishing out of Kansas City and Chicago-based Community Health magazine, as well as served as the online editor for Consumers Digest.

When not clacking away on a keyboard, Carlson enjoys getting out in mid-Missouri’s majestic state parks and chalking up as many new experiences with his son, Jacob, as possible. And all things Sriracha.

Now in its 20th year of business, Visionworks has developed powerful and effective marketing strategies for clients across multiple platforms. The agency’s core strengths include strategic planning and consulting; branding and creative services; online marketing; audio and video production; and media planning and placement. Owner Lili Vianello leads a diverse team of creative and dedicated professionals who work together to fashion dynamic and engaging messages for clients with interests that range from hyper-local to international.
