Live an extraordinary life

That’s a tall order. I know the folks at Bishop Gadsden are living such an existence. Big Gnome joined Blue Ion’s creative team to write the new web site for this life care retirement community in Charleston, S.C.
Mike Henry sums up the project nicely on Blue Ion’s blog. The passion for life that permeates the community, from the residents, as well as the leadership and staff – and their ability to articulate that passion – gave me, as a writer, a strong, creative base from which to develop the content.
Another tall order was to avoid the traditional positioning and verbiage of retirement community marketing, which is about as fresh as 30-year-old potpourri.
Off-limit wording included “peace of mind” and even “retirement.” Bishop Gadsden residents are anything but retired.
