Both of the designs were featured in magazine ads and billboards as well as on special-edition Pepsi cans and other merchandise. PepsiCo Design & Innovation incorporated Pepsi’s “Live For Now” message while staying on trend and in season.

Title of Entry: “Cerveza Imperial: Can This Beer Save the Planet?”
Category: 172c. Strategic Communications – Media Relations/Publicity – Publicity Campaign

How do you promote a sustainable product in a sustainability-rich environment? Volume Public Relations was faced with this challenge when Cerveza Imperial approached the agency to develop a campaign to build brand awareness in Colorado.

Volume Public Relations and Cerveza Imperial chose to leverage the fact that Imperial is the only “water positive” beer in the world, meaning the product has a nonexistent water footprint. The agency faced the challenge of differentiating Imperial from the numerous craft breweries in Colorado, and spotlighting Imperial’s sustainability in an already eco-conscious environment.

The agency coordinated a campaign utilizing event planning, social media and traditional media to communicate with consumers on multiple platforms. Volume Public Relations and Cerveza Imperial worked with a Colorado-based nonprofit, enrolled in local beer festivals, invested in water-conservation initiatives and sponsored a fundraiser to project Imperial’s message.

The campaign spanned six months and successfully generated more than 250 online press releases, 30 broadcast segments, four unique print articles and increased sales by 20 percent. Thanks to Volume Public Relations’ award-winning campaign, Cerveza Imperial differentiated their brand in a congested market.

In print journalism and advertising, the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” cannot be overstated.  But with the advent of video, VR, and graphics, photography at times seems like a lost art form. That’s where Trevelino/Keller of Atlanta, Georgia steps in.

It seems easy to take a picture of a restaurant dish and it is.  The hard part is making it stand out.  The agency’s photograph of a flatbread pizza invites the viewer to dine-in.  You can almost taste the basil and sauce while crunching into the crisp crust.

Category: 152c. Strategic Communications – Marketing/Promotion Campaign – Special Event

If you’ve recently eaten a berry– whether strawberry, blueberry, or other– the chances are it was grown by Driscoll’s, a privately held company in California.

Driscoll’s recently wanted to elevate its product around the country with a national campaign. The usual media was utilized, but the company also decided to go a bit guerilla with a hands-on marketing hook. The idea was presented in cities across America who led the country in berry consumption.

It started with a stage that looked like any stage in any city green space. But on closer look bright murals decorated the backdrop and floor. No signs, no directions, just a stage waiting for someone to explore. In each city, curiosity eventually won over bystanders who discovered that fun things were waiting to happen.
