One Of A Kind recently worked with XTRA Lease to create a personalized 3-dimensional retirement tribute for their long-time CEO. A custom-made, bespoke shadowbox was the perfect gift to show appreciation for this leader who was also a mentor and a friend. Our collaborator at XTRA Lease wrote that the celebration send-off was a huge success, and when the CEO was presented with the gift, he was “overwhelmed, as were all the attendees at the event…folks are still looking at the piece noticing items they overlooked the first time.”
Bespoke /bəˈspōk/ adj. custom-made; handcrafted; specialized; made or fitted to the needs or preferences of a specific customer.
When you’re looking for a personalized gift, you’ll find different levels of personalization. “Bespoke”, by definition, is more than simply engraving or etching the recipient’s name on a present. The word “bespoke” is best known for its centuries-old relationship with tailor-made suits, certainly the opposite of suits “off the rack.” So when you want a gift that is truly personalized in every detail —rather than “off the shelf”— One Of A Kind bespoke shadowboxes provide the ultimate level of personalization.
The role of the Chief Executive Officer emerged early in the 20th century as modern corporations grew. The managerial structures called for individual executives to run different business units and functions. As large firms developed with lots of employees, hierarchies, and divisions, the business world started seeing more CEOs.
CEOs have always had to adapt to new challenges, but the speed and urgency with which these arise has increased dramatically over the years. For example, a CEO from the 1950s had a certain number of business-critical decisions maybe once or twice in their tenure; today, CEOs face those same kind of decisions several times a year. CEOs play an important role in providing deep, long-term thinking and finding elegant ways to align stakeholder interests with shareholder interests.
So what do you present the truly exceptional CEO upon retirement as a thank you for the years they dedicated to an organization? One Of A Kind offers the perfect solution. (more…)

The creation of Al Neuharth’s USA TODAY artwork was an unforgettable chapter in the One Of A Kind story. Lawrence Romorini’s very first corporate commission was for this titan of the newspaper industry, a visionary who had seen it all and had it all. It was the 5th anniversary of USA TODAY, and thanks to the vision of John Curley, Lawrence was commissioned to create a gift for Neuharth to commemorate the occasion. “Knock his socks off,” was the mandate to honor the USA TODAY Founder on the company’s anniversary.
