columbus Zoo spot wins top state & international tourism awards

December 01, 2016 -

Is it the cute n’ cuddly animals?  The can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head hip hop music? Or the breakdancing moves of Jungle Jack Hanna? Whatever the reason, our comical “Carnivores vs. Herbivores” commercial for the Columbus Zoo continues to earn some serious creative awards. It was just named best TV spot at the international Brass Ring Awards saluting the world’s top tourism ads. It also brought home a Ruby Award from the Ohio Travel Association for best tourism commercial in the state. Our humorous radio spot for Zoombezi Bay waterpark also won a Ruby for best radio in Ohio.

neil armstrong “stars” in new campaign

August 04, 2016 -

It’s one of the most famous quotes of all time – “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” – and it’s the centerpiece of our new campaign for the Twilight Zone: Deep Reefs Revealed exhibit at the California Academy of Sciences. The Armstrong family personally approved the audio clip’s usage, because, much like that walk on the moon, Academy scientists are boldly diving into a new frontier. Watch it here.
