Kids love music. Moms love their kids. Through sponsoring the One Direction 2013 National Tour, Nabisco reaches both audiences. The campaign includes packaging, POS, digital and events. Kids can enter for a chance to win tickets to 1 of 4 sold-out concert events, engage with the band through augmented reality and exclusive content via a mobile app and follow the band through twitter and instagram. Content will be sustained throughout 2013 even after the tour is over.
Web and Mobile
Knowing that kids today are on their mobile or tablet device more then they are on a desktop. We developed a responsive website that can be viewed on all platforms.
We also developed a App that utilized all the major social media outlets. The idea is to have the consumer feel like a VIP by getting inside info from our tour blogger to receive special videos, text messages and voice mails from the band.
We also utilized the packaging and made it a trigger for a special Augmented Reality Video to where the band appears on top of the packaging talking directly to you.
Packaging and POS
With Nabisco being the soul sponsor for One Direction North American tour. We came up with a multi platform approach. Beginning with Packaging and In-Store POS
To Give our App and Website the feel of VIP we shot 14 videos that gives the fans a behind the scenes look at the band on and off the stage. This includes a interview with them answering questions from the fans.
WHO AM I?
Art Director with over 17 years experience in advertising and marketing.
During my time in the industry, I’ve created and led fully integrated campaigns—from web and print to experiential and promotional—for some of the world’s biggest brands: USPS, Kraft, Nabisco, State Farm, P&G, Motorola, RJ Reynolds and Philip Morris, to name just a few. And I’m proud to have picked up over 40 awards along the way.
As a team leader, my beliefs are pretty simple: Work hard, get things done on time, be a creative inspiration and maintain an open dialog. Positive attitudes bring positive results.
What's At Your Core?
We were asked to make Corn Nuts more prominence on the shelf as a brand. Here we concepted for weeks and came up with Corn to the Core.

That took the power and heritage of the Nabisco triangle and made it relevant to today. Creative played up the connection between the individuality of consumers and that of Nabisco brands. Showcasing that while we are one as a society, through our little differences and independent spirit we can all Give Life Flavor.
Give LIfe Flavor
Individuality is what gives life flavor and is at the core of this campaign. By embracing and celebrating what makes people unique, we’ll establish how Nabisco and the unique products they bake fit into their lives. After all we have products just right for every flavor, style and taste.
This was a passion of love and persistence. But what a ride. Marlboro wanted to re brand there product Blend 27. So when I was challenged to come up with a new campaign for them. I jumped in with both feet. Instead of just promoting the product we wanted to make it mysterious and intriguing piece. So we came up with "Take the Time. Find It." which is about taking the time to find something you enjoy doing. What ever that maybe. So we produced a video that you have to watch closely and look for the clues with in the video that unlock savings and prizes. But you have have to get the code correct to get the prize. So take the time and find it.
We also did a new Cello Design where in the number 27 we put the entire intriguing story of blend 27.
Hot, Sweaty, Tired, and Surrounded by endless energy and great music. That is Bonnaroo in a nut shell. In June of 2011 my copywriter and I were tasked with a very specfic assignment.

Crunch Den 2011
It started with the tent itself and how we could get everyone excited and showing there own personality. We began with a graffiti wall, which our attendees loved. Then we sectioned the space into expression station where the attendees could sample wheat thins and be apart of a music video with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
Co-Created Music Video

Nothing is more iconic to Americana then Harley Davidson, that is why I was honored when asked to come up with their 110th anniversary event.

While working for Philip Morris I had the opportunity to work on a lot of great campaigns and promotions. Working on such a iconic brand as Marlboro is a challenge and was a pleasure. While there I had the opportunity to concept and create campaigns and promotions from start to finish with great success. For example the two promotions (Rock'N Boots and Break Big) that I have had the pleasure to concept and create from start to finish. Were huge successes with 100 of thousands of entries and millions of views on the Marlboro.com site. I also had the pleasure of directing the photoshoot for Break Big. While having a tight budget and zero travel budget we needed to convey the experiences that our consumers would be taking with out having to physically going to each location. So working with Alter image we mixed 3D graphics with the photography we shot in studio to create the composition.
