Mugs Monday with Kadie Smith



Hello, hello! It’s Mugs Monday— are you ready to meet another creative, awesome woman entrepreneur? Of course you are! Her name is Kadie Smith and she’s the Founder of Drop Cap Design. Drop Cap was launched in 2014 and the name was inspired by that bold, illustrative letter you see at the beginning of a story. How fitting, because Kadie lives her life in a pretty bold way. Not only does she split her time between Dallas, Texas and Livingston, Montana, but she has created a branding studio that attracts very unique and community-oriented brands & projects. Take a peek at her studio’s Instagram for some more inspo & enjoy getting to know Dallas and Livingston through her eyes. Stay boss. xx -G

What's your favorite local shop to treat yo'self or a friend? Dallas: Beatnik / Magic Hour / All Good Things / Favor the Kind • Bozeman: Heyday.

What's your favorite local brunch spot? Dallas: Tribal Cafe / Livingston: Gil’s.

What’s a goal you have for your business this year? I've started rebuilding my design team and I'm excited to refine our processes this fall as we grow. We've really started to hit our groove as a team and I'm excited to see how the studio evolves as a result!

What are your words to live by? Good things take time.
