Made in the Middle is a fantastic new website built by Tad and Jessica Carpenter. It just launched yesterday, and it’s all about the creative community here in Kansas City. The site features interviews with local creative professionals — designers, photographers, chefs, architects — every Monday.

You don’t have to be a KC local to appreciate the site — the interviews are well designed, and conducted with some extremely talented and thoughtful folks.

When I quit my job as a marketing and creative director to begin writing for a living, the creative community here in Kansas City was smaller and far less vibrant than it is now. In the last 3-4 years, it has exploded. (No doubt it has something to do with the fact we’ve got some the best coffee shops in the world and along with some of the fastest internet.)
