Bare feet.

We’ve always maintained that, in business, you have to be in front of your customers. Don’t wait until they come to you looking for what’s new, what’s trending, what’s hot.

Deliver it to them.

Be ahead of the curve.

The other side of being in front of your customers is being top of mind. Likely you’ve heard the expression “TOMA” – Top Of Mind Awareness. We create a lot of these campaigns for our clients. We’ve probably done this for you.

The problem for us is that we’re so busy creating for our clients, that we neglect our own material - the showcase with which we present what was new, what worked, what was effective advertising.

Our retired consultant friend, Bryan, regularly reminds us that we are the cobblers with the shoeless kids, too busy to make footwear for them.

And that we shouldn’t be.

When time permits, we dig through the vault to find campaigns on which we’ve enjoyed working, had success, and pleased our clients. In the end, when the clients get results, we’re all happy.

And that just inspires us to make some dancing shoes.

Case Study :: Kamloops Harley-Davidson

We do a fair amount of work for different sized Advertising Agencies. They often come to us for production or casting, but we do have many cases where they simply want a fresh take on their client’s creative.

We do that.

In a lot of cases, the client never knows we are doing the commercials. It…

Case Study :: Sun City Physiotherapy

Services are always more difficult to promote than products, especially when it is a medical service.

But we love a challenge!

In this case, Sun City Physiotherapy already had an established brand, a solid reputation and referral service within the medical community, and was widely known in the marketplace. The goal, now that they were established,…

Case Study :: Rooms Come True

This project was a redirection, as opposed to a rebranding, for the client.

Originally, Rooms Come True was using radio, but the demographic of the station was not delivering the pre-qualified customer. The original campaign had a child talking about children’s furniture and accessories. It was cute, and well executed creative, but it wasn’t talking…
