• DJ CaveM: "HybridLex" – New Video from Denver's F4D Studio

    / Comments (0)

    DJ Cavem Moetavation has just released his new single video entitled, "HybridLex." The recently featured Oprah Magazine educator and O.G. (Organic Gardner) DJ Cavem explained how he's promoting the freshness of mind-body entrepreneurialism and awareness — while educating on the subjects of environmental issues such as mineral stripping of the Earth through his music:

    “I am using my music, which is my art, to promote living a more sustainable lifestyle. This song in particular pushes riding a bike or driving a hybrid vehicle, making it fresh. And giving props to those that do it already. I really do have a low rider bike with 144 spokes, and I did grow up with asthma, this song is a testimony. My mission is to utilize my music to educate and to inform. I mention the air pollution because it is a serious problem in my community. I want people to bob their head.”

    The video — shot in Denver — is from F4D Studio.

  • gyro Denver Welcomes the World to the World of WOW!

    / Comments (3)

    “Welcome to the world of WOW!” is the inspiration for a new campaign created by gyro Denver to introduce consumers to the genuine side of the cable business. The campaign, which kicked off in April, includes print, outdoor, television and online activations.

    Denver-based WOW! is one of the nation’s leading providers of high-speed Internet, cable TV, and phone and serves a growing number of communities in the Midwest and Southeast. Since its founding in 1996, WOW!’s mission has been to stand out from other cable companies by providing a better experience. In an era of increasing cable mergers and media monopolies, creating a fresh campaign rooted in this brand promise was especially important to help WOW! differentiate itself and reinforce how it continues to “shake up” the cable industry.

    “WOW! is a cable company that truly believes in doing things differently. It was important for the campaign to demonstrate WOW!’s personality and brand promise in an ownable way,” said Aaron Stern, ECD, gyro Denver. “The work lets the employees stay real while still bringing out the company’s fun side.”

    For the broadcast spots, gyro created a structure that uses real employees in a purposefully unpolished way to deliver WOW!’s benefits and customer service promises.

    Each spot features an employee talking about a WOW! promise, value or benefit and then cuts to a humorous interpretation or manifestation of that promise. In one spot, a WOW! employee announces that WOW!’s customer service is so great, it “may just give you the warm fuzzies” and then cuts to a scene where happy customers, just visited by a friendly WOW! employee, literally have cute yellow ‘warm fuzzy’ critters all over them.

    The print campaign features intricate, miniature paper sets and leverages the talents of fashion photographer Liz Von Hoene, known for her work on behalf of Target, Macy's and Neiman Marcus, among others.

    To create the WOW! world for the print ads, gyro worked with a paper artist to create tiny paper worlds full of quirky and whimsical elements like whales and top hats –– not what you'd expect from a cable company. WOW! employees were then composited into the scenes to complete the world.

  • #AppLaunch: Three Cents – Via Denver's LoHi Labs

    / Comments (1)

    Three Cents is a new iPhone app developed and conceived by LoHi Labs that allows users to quickly create polls and gather opinions from anyone. Polls can be shared across a variety of networks; your friends don’t even need the app to answer. Apple featured the app the week before last on the front page as one of its “Best New Apps” and it was featured again last week in the Social Networking category. So, it's probably worth a download.
