Case Studies

Xanterra

The Issue

BRAND MANAGEMENT

Ohio State Parks and Lodging and the Grand Canyon Railway both asked us to manage their brands. Their in-house marketing team was lacking at best.

The Thinking

Traditional and digital marketing campaigns through digital ads, web page development, and social media campaigns along with tracking targeted audiences via Google Analytics and blueprinting programmatic ad buys.

The Results

Working with Xanterra and the GCR was a real treat  We had the pleasure to also co-brand and market with Warner Brothers. The Polar Express movie theme was incorporated into the train ride and the kids thought it was so funny.

We helped increase ticket sales and riders 67%.

Not only did we push marketing efforts we also helped with the experience. We designed the map of the north pole and the button each child would wear to get onto the train.

Unwind Sensory Institute

The Issue

BRAND IDENTITY

Our challenge was to create a logo mark that resembled a puzzle and the face of a child that wasn’t too medical and appeared friendly and welcoming.

The Thinking

We explored a wide variety of options before landing on the current look. After a few virtual and in person focus groups we really had a vision of what we wanted.

The Results

Unwind is a pediatrics therapy company that is now merged with ADKOP: A Different Kind of Perfect. We designed their logo and branding, marketing materials, stationery, app design & web design. We also created small illustrations of each of the sensory therapies to be used across their website and social media posts.

U.S. Ski and Snowboard

The Issue

CREATIVE AND DESIGN

U.S. Ski and Snowboard asked us to design their merchandise trailer that was making the North American World Cup circuit in 2018.

The Thinking

Eye candy. The first words we thought of when we started this project. We wanted to be bold, eye catching and progressive with our style.

The Results

We took great pride in developing an eye-catching trailer for the United States Ski and Snowboard Association featuring action shots of U.S. Olympians.

Knowing USSA racers and hard-core advocates flock around a trailer between runs, it was critical to design the trailer to absolute perfection.

The Issue

INTEGRATED MARKETING CAMPAIGN

The Thinking

Our multimedia efforts revolved around a heavy volume of print ads, digital ads, and Dental Lifeline Network annual report distributed through printed and digital editions.

Stella Quattro

The Issue

Classic Doorways, Inc. had outgrown its original name. With their facility, staff of skilled craftsmen, and reputation for service, the company now has the capacity to handle any finishing job, not just doors. Also, since the majority of their previous experience was supplying to high-end luxury hotels, this client base should be a core part of their new position and name.

The Thinking

Stellaquattro is a play off of “four-star” in Italian. This name makes added sense because the client does business outside of the U.S., so a sense of worldly sophistication is necessary.
