Even a grumpy grandpa loves news like this. Our charming “Get Closer” commercial for the Columbus Zoo, starring a curmudgeonly grandpa and his adorable granddaughter, has been named “Best Commercial for Zoos & Aquariums” at the 2017 Brass Ring Awards in Orlando. The global awards, presented by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, recognize creative marketing excellence in the tourism industry.
We’re pleased to announce that our animated Pterosaurs spot for the California Academy of Sciences has been named “Best Television/Digital Commercial” at the 2017 IAAPA Awards in Orlando. The awards recognize creative excellence in tourism marketing from around the world. The spot, which defeated finalists from Sweden and Germany, features prehistoric flying reptiles soaring over San Francisco on their way to the Academy in Golden Gate Park.
Our eye-catching new “Pterosaurs” commercial for the California Academy of Sciences is making quite an impression. The animated spot, which features prehistoric pterosaurs flying over the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline, was just featured in ADWEEK, SHOOT, Best Ads on TV, and other national news sites. We also really love the awesome comments it’s been getting on social media – and the big boost it’s having on attendance at the Academy’s new Pterosaurs exhibit.
Rusty Bucket has a shiny new ad agency.

Rusty Bucket has 24 locations in 6 states, with more on the way, and is a sister company of Columbus-based Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. We’re super excited to celebrate the big account win at their place, with plenty of those fried pickles and craft beer.
An albino alligator shredding on guitar. A very busy octopus behind the bar. Penguins tearing up the dance floor. We asked Bay Area illustrator Nigel Sussman to interpret the popular NightLife events at San Francisco’s California Academy of Sciences. Check out the spectacular result.
For over 35 years, Print magazine’s Regional Design Annual has saluted the best of the best in graphic design from across the U.S. We’re proud to say this year the prestigious panel of judges selected not one but two Foth projects: our emotional work for the Ubumwe Community Center in Africa, and our Hippity Hoppy craft beer labels. Winning twice at the highest level? Time to open one – or two – of those beers and celebrate.
