Internet pioneers and mainstays.
Established in 1995, just as companies began migrating online, Kinetic Communications provided consulting and development services to early corporate adopters of digital marketing and multimedia.
Kinetic was the first studio of its kind within the state and surrounding areas to offer in-house development and integration of three electronic media: Internet applications, video production and interactive programming. Founder Jay Brandrup named his new company Kinetic, inspired by the energy of movement, both physical and psychological. From the beginning, Jay’s healthy respect for incorporating “fun” attitudes and atmosphere into the business has nurtured growth and success.
In the wild years since, the Internet has boomed, busted, and resurged again. And Kinetic has consistently flourished, helping a range of clients with their interactive needs — from Alabama Power and McAfee to America’s First Federal Credit Union and Buffalo Rock.
From a desire to contribute to the greater Birmingham community, Kinetic works with the City of Birmingham, the City Council, and the Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau, among others, promoting Birmingham through web and app development. Other notable non-profit community projects include the Birmingham Zoo, Lakeshore Foundation, Birmingham Children’s Theatre, and the McWane Science Center, among others.
