Innovation Is In Our DNA
23 Years & 8 Industry Firsts
A story to be told…
The Candace Crowe Design story starts in my living room. As a single mom with four sons aged 3–13, I had a burning desire to raise and provide for them. I obtained my first plastic surgeon client, Winter Park Plastic Surgery, and immediately felt a connection to the industry — beauty, art, and smart people. If you met me in those early years, you likely met my sons because they would travel and help set up at the meetings. They also reviewed videos, recorded audio, stuffed envelopes for direct mail, and helped mom in any way they could. We are delightfully thankful to this industry as we “found our niche” in the world and in an industry where we could survive and thrive as a family of five.
My mom is a portrait artist. Growing up she was always quick to point out shades of color, perspective, texture, composition and so on. I grew up in a family-owned business; my father owned a manufacturing company. I understood the philosophy of making a quality product affordable and beautiful. So, when we innovate, that’s what we strive for.
The first touchscreen consultation aid — the REVENEZ story… It was 1999 when I met Debbie Boyd, wife and practice manager for Dr. Barry Boyd. Debbie and I would sit for hours going through their database using inform Solutions to figure out how to increase referrals and conversion rates of potential patients.
I also watched my first consultation video and felt a disconnect. Instead of a man in a white lab coat, I wanted to create an experience of having a woman-to-woman conversation. Debbie set up my meeting with Karen Zupko. I walked into the Hyatt Orlando airport restaurant with the rather large iMac on my hip and set it on the table. I proceeded to show Karen how REVENEZ works and how it’s used during a consultation. Within minutes she said, “this is exactly what plastic surgeons need”. From there we signed up for our first meeting, SESPRS in 2003 and have been going to the meetings ever since.
