Title: Aetrex – Don’t Forget to Take Them Off Ad

A newspaper mogul once remarked that to sell newspapers all you need is a picture of a pretty girl, a child, and a dog.  Aetrex Worldwide dropped the kid and the mutt but still managed to make an impression.  Using a a wink and a nod approach to sell shoes, Aetrex placed a pretty woman into a bathtub and captioned the image, “don’t forget to take them off.”  The colorful ad graced the pages of CondeNast Traveler and Lucky Magazine.

Client: Columbus Metropolitan Library
Title: CML’s 2011 Summer Reading Club
Category: 34c. Integrated Marketing Campaign

With dvd’s, computers, Internet, ipods, gaming, and cable television within easy grasp of most kids, reading would seem to be lost among the competition for attention.  When’s the last time anyone went to a public library, especially a child?  The Columbus Metropolitan Library faced a daunting task–get people reading again.  The Summer Reading Program built a fully integrated campaign around the theme, “Be a Hero. Read”.  The CMS reached out to the community using social and traditional media.  Logos, graphics, and celebrities also were brought into the marketing mix. The creative campaign resulted in a 20% increase in participants.  Almost 90,000 kids, teenagers, and adults signed on to be ‘heroes’.  Reading is alive and well in Columbus, Ohio.
