Getting the Elevator Pitch Down

 

“White Cloud Rafting” website

Client: White Cloud Rafting | Design: Jenny & Co. | Copy mission: In the competitive environment of Stanley and Sun Valley, White Cloud needed a total website and brand refresh as accessible, approachable, fun-loving and trust-worthy as the owner and guide team behind this legendary rafting company.

Results: A dramatic increase in bookings.

“Lonesome Larry” coasters

client: Idaho Rivers United | design: Bethany Walter | copy mission: To tell the true action-adventure story of Lonesome Larry for his 20th anniversary by sending out an intern in a human-sized sockeye salmon suit to the far reaches of Idaho. Bringing surprise and delight to the most unexpected places, Lonesome Larry handed out branded coasters that tell his story with a link to a compelling website. All documented on social media. The entire campaign is my concept—and was a wild success. This is a spoof on the brilliant Dos Equis’ “The Most Interesting Man in the World” campaign.

“Lonesome Larry” radio spots

client: Idaho Rivers United | copy mission: To tell the true action-adventure story of Lonesome Larry—the most interesting fish in the world—and invite Idahoans to his 20th anniversary party in 3 one-minute radio spots.

“His fish story reads like an action-packed thriller, except it’s true…”

“His commute makes the Iron Man look like a walk in the park…”

“In a race for the very survival of his species, one lone fish prevailed…”

Lonesome Larry website

client: Idaho Rivers United | design: Bethany Walter | copy mission: To tell the true action-adventure story of Lonesome Larry for his 20th anniversary. I came up with this campaign when volunteering for this nonprofit organization wearing a human-sized salmon suit. What if, I wondered, we could take saving Idaho’s endangered sockeye out of the contentious political realm, and instead just spotlight the nail-biting true story of the most interesting fish in the world? So (an intern in the guise of) Lonesome Larry wandered through Idaho in the most unexpected places, handing out branded coasters and magnets that tell his story with a link to a compelling website. All documented on social media. This is a spoof on the brilliant Dos Equis’ “The Most Interesting Man in the World” campaign.

Impact: In the words of IRU’s Director of Communications, Greg Stahl: “The diverse four-month multimedia campaign included a thorough public relations effort that resulted in stories in the Seattle Times, National Geographic NewsWatch, National Public Radio, Idaho Statesman and Idaho Public Television, among others. It also included creation of a website and implementation of an intensive social media campaign that, at its peak, reached thousands of viewers per day. It also included scripting, editing and production of radio ads that ran throughout the state of Idaho.”

“Armor Bijoux” naming & tagline

Client: Bethany Walter | Design: Bethany Walter | Copy mission: To come up with a name and tagline for a striking line of antique and vintage sourced ethnic jewelry.

iusb_760x100.8702853

So striking, so bold, it feels like Armor, paired with Bijoux, the archaic name for jewelry. The tagline speaks to the competitive nature of fashion, but the timeless win of statement jewelry with history on its side.
