Ad Agency Cutting Edge




Chart magazine and promotions were created in 2005 by Publisher Casey Tennyson through her advertising agency Cutting Edge Communications, founded in 1991. As Cutting Edge Communications celebrates its 30th Anniversary, we will share some of our past client projects. Casey created the Chart concept to fill a need of high-end ad agency accounts with smaller budgets who only wanted to target upscale affluent adults. Casey created the Chart promotion to give her own ad agency accounts an affordable, efficient and effective medium in which to place their advertising budgets.

cec #tbt Sam Meiner, The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne  A former ad agency client Sam Meiner passed away Jan. 6, 2021. I saw him just a few months ago at his restaurant on Lee Road in Winter Park, Bubbalou’s Bodacious Bar-B-Que. I met there with a long-time media rep Tim Travis. For Sam and his wife Eleanor, I created their first website for their downtown Orlando historic Bed and Breakfast, The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. (It’s now The 1883 historic Victorian home got a website created by me about 25 years ago. At the time, I was hosting company’s biggest reseller of small 10 to 20 page websites. I was efficient as a web designer because I could create all the graphics, photos and copy (writing.)  I created websites (and ad campaigns) for many, many of local Winter Park businesses over the years. I am always pleased when I see a logo or tag line or copy points last the test of time and still in use. In the case of Sam, I am sorry to see that my past client and friend has passed.

It’s now a fave row of shops and restaurants for Winter Park locals. My 30 year advertising agency has worked with many, many of the local business over the years.
