When it comes to advertising creativity, size truly does not matter. As an advertising client, you don’t have to spend millions of dollars to get our attention or our best creative talents. Creativity as measured by annual Addy Awards clearly shows that ADS & PR can go toe-to-toe with the biggest ad agencies and outdo them. Creativity and results are, after all, what you are paying for—not the fancy lunches or the second string account executives who say “yes” without considering if a concept or a project is really in your company’s best interests. ADS & PR’s direct contact creative approach means you always get our “A team,” without a big hassle and unnecessary costs. What’s big around our agency is our ideas and commitment to our clients—each and every one of them!

Tres Amigos Harley-Davidson: BORN TO RIDE TOGETHER

Being “hog” enthusiasts ourselves, this campaign was right up our biking alley! ADS & PR used the symbolic photo of a classic bike outside a diner on the open road. After all, every true biker loves the thrill of the open road and the wind in their face. Our multi-level marketing campaign embraced that in outdoor advertising, radio, TV and print advertising.

Run Energy: Experts in Alternative Energy

Run Energy is one of the world’s leading operations and maintenance (O&M) services companies especially for the wind energy industry. It takes more than mechanical knowledge of how things work; it takes a company-wide commitment to quality and safety. Huge wind turbines have to spin to generate energy. If something goes wrong somewhere on a wind farm of hundreds of turbines and hundred of feet up in the air, companies don’t want to play around with a novice or an unproven O&M source. ADS & PR goes into great depth to show what makes Run Energy different and special. The success of an international advertising and trade show marketing/PR campaign has transformed this originally Australian-based company into an international business success story.

Run Energy: Services

When this Australian-based alternative energy company entered the U.S. market, they needed a complete marketing package—the whole enchilada! ADS & PR was selected to create a signature look and feel that would quickly differentiate Run Energy from the competition in an exciting new industry. In Run’s new capabilities brochure, ADS & PR focuses on the people and services that make Run Energy unique in the industry. Today, the company is an international business success story with offices servicing the Americas, Asia-Pacific and the UK/Europe.

Run Energy: Bottom Line Efficiency

ADS & PR utilized a wide range of marketing strategies to ensure Run Energy’s success in the alternative energy industry including trade shows, print media, PR and the internet, to name a few. Run Energy’s white hardhat has become internationally synonymous with quality and efficiency.

Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery

The compelling visual we shot in the studio for a regional print advertising campaign also became a natural centerpiece for strategically positioned outdoor advertising. The “traffic-stopping” look is typical of ADS & PR’s approach to creating provocative and memorable campaigns that work in any media.

Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery

In preparation for an initial brand launch for Dr. Vitenas, ADS & PR’s own research showed that “natural” is a reoccurring theme and motivation. ADS & PR always focuses on what motivates a target audience and how to reach them in the most cost-effective and memorable way possible. Our creative team combines Vitenas’ signature brand with striking photos that exemplifies the cosmetic surgeon’s unique approach. Vitenas is widely known for his ability to achieve a natural look that is classic and timeless. This highly successful advertising campaign appeared on billboards, and in health and beauty publications.

Hyatt Regency: Paint The Town Red

Hyatt Regency Houston is a downtown business hotel landmark. Given that downtown Houston once had a reputation as a ghost town after work and on weekends. Hyatt’s new general manager wanted to “shake things up” when it came time for the hotel’s 25th anniversary celebration, so he called upon ADS & PR to come up with a theme and ideas that would start to change locals’ perception of the hotel as a place to party on the weekend too. Paint the Town Red has gone into the annals of Hyatt’s most successful promotions ever. The mega event pulled out all the stops with multiple radio station tie-ins, parties, contests and even construction of the World’s Largest Margarita according to Guinness Book of Records.

Hyatt Regency: Animal Crackers

Administrative assistants and travel professionals are key to any major business hotel. Periodically, Hyatt Regency Downtown says “thank you” to its Private Line associates by hosting a special party or event. In this particular year, ADS & PR created the Super Colossal Circus Party theme with accompanying direct mailings. Always seeking to set clients apart from the rest, ADS & PR designed a custom piece that mimics real animal cracker box packaging in a cost-effective, self-mailable format. The piece not only won lots of awards, the event was a resounding success. The only glitch from a hungry mail guy? A few recipients reported boxes that were sans animal cracker cookies, but we quickly supplied new ones.

BELL GEOSPACE: Event Invitation

Bell Geospace is an international exploration imaging company. Each year, Europe hosts a multi-day convention, allowing exhibitors the opportunity to tout their services to the top energy companies in the world. After a day on the exhibit floor, participants are looking to make connections with prospective customers on a personal level. Knowing that the event in London was located near what was once Winston Churchill’s underground war room in World War II, ADS & PR’s creative juices began to flow. We discovered that the war room was now available for “events” such as one we were planning. The concept of “THERE’S A POWERFUL NEW EXPLORATION WEAPON COMING” worked brilliantly with the war-room theme. With attention to every detail, ADS & PR uncovered a small manufacturer of historically correct WWII battleships. The craftsman custom made each battleship to scale. Needless to say, the uniqueness of the venue and the marketing pieces made Bell Geospace the talk of the convention.
