My name is Kim Petruska and I am the creator of Rendezvous magazine.
A little history…I am an artist and an entrepreneur. I’ve had a Decorative Painting business from the beginning of my working career. This includes murals and wall finishes that led to product design and licensing for the wholesale market.
When the recession hit, I decided to reassess what I wanted to do in the future. I realized that what I loved the most about every project was the creating and designing part. This didn’t have to be only artwork so I developed an idea.
I saw a problem with how people met to date in real life, so I created the “You Caught my Eye” card. This card was connected to a personal profile, is a simple way to connect IRL. Events and festivals were held to use the cards.
Our goal is to create a fun and entertaining way to inform & engage our readers.
I ultimately underestimated how comfortable people were handing out a card to someone they are attracted to in the age of Tinder. I learned a lot and decided to create this magazine which came out of the whole experience.
Our goal is to be the friend who you enjoy having a glass of wine or coffee with, who gives great advice. The friend who cheers you up but doesn’t BS you when you need it most!
We want to inspire our readers to enjoy a successful life.
Our vision of the future is to include city guides that have sponsored happy hours, tours and festivals.
We are very excited to evolve into what has been dreamed about for years!
