When Tidbits owners agreed to mentor Kim and Amanda with their venture, Carl Adams, a design graduate of Auburn University Montgomery and creative director for a national publishing company for ten years, immediately became part of the RSVP team. After their initial meeting, Carl looked over the logo presented and said “This just won’t do… let me have a whirl at it.” He then created and produced the RSVP logo that has become branded and known throughout our River Region. Carl spent hours in phase one of RSVP before the magazine ever existed. He created the media kits, ad rates, deadlines, and taught the girls all about design specifications. “Carl is such an easy going, likable person and that isn’t just because we all shared many cold ones in the learning process,” says Amanda. Carl has always taken pride in creating the vibrant layouts and over the past five years has put in many late night hours to ensure a deadline was met. “I will never forget Carl calling to tell us that the first issue was coming off the press. We all rushed over to the printers where he met us with champagne. It was like a baby was being born,” says Kim. Carl credits his extremely talented team of photographers and designers that he works with on the creative side of things, and the energetic, "never-stop" mentality of the RSVP girls. Speaking of girls, the number one girl in Carl’s life is his beautiful five-year-old daughter Caroline. She graced the pages of the second issue of RSVP, and it’s easy to tell that Carl is a proud father. “It’s kind of cool to think about it, because both Caroline and RSVP magazine have grown so much in the past five years,” says Carl. When not hard at work on his computer, Carl enjoys playing golf and WAKA kickball. He was recently voted “Life of the Party” by his WAKA teammates. He is also an avid Auburn football fan.
