  • Victoria's Secret: The Perfect One

    / Comments (1)

    Ever wonder what it would be like to have a job where you got paid to stare at Heidi Klum in her underwear all day? Feel free to ask Matt Benson or Joe Mease.

    Working directly with the in-house creative team at Victoria’s Secret Direct, Matt and Joe tackled the design and development of the Perfect One micro-site.

    The site was created to complement the overall campaign strategy surrounding the recent launch of Victoria’s Secret’s newest bra, The Perfect One.

    The site relies heavily on HD video footage, a 360 degree feature tour, an Ask Heidi quiz, as well as sharing capabilities, a store locator, and of course, links to purchase the bra online.

    While we’re always delighted to see a quality product coming out of a local shop, or shops in this case, we are even more excited that a major NY brand, such as Victoria’s Secret, is tapping Denver-based resources for such high profile projects.

    Well done, Matt. Well done, Joe. Well done, Heidi.

  • Denver Copywriter Jordan Sher Breaks The Mold

    / Comments (10)

    While the majority of us are bootstrapping, penny-pinching and passing the days away in a state of doe-eyed hibernation, the smart ones in the bunch are heeding the advice we’ve all been pushing on our clients—that dark days are the time to promote the hardest. It’s when the cream rises.

    Denver copywriter Jordan Sher has embraced this philosophy full-bore with a new promotion he’s developed—built around the theme “My Head Full of Ideas.” The effort includes a new web presence made extra enticing with design and illustration from Hero Design Studio’s Shaw Nielsen and development by Creative Gale.

    The promo campaign also includes a direct mail component—old, used, classic books (“Old Man and the Sea”, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” etc.) wrapped with a belly band and holding a bookmark with Jordan’s head sticking out the top of the book. The print pieces, developed in concert with Hero Design Studio, are being distributed to Denver’s advertising and design CDs.
