PR Campaigns Special Events — NEA Bus Tour, 2005

Job: Design and create Campaign Art for a Commercial Concert Bus and Tour materials touting the client’s message.

The Bus Tour Campaign was a huge success. With large crowds meeting, greeting and sending off the bus and crew. The tour received lots of local and national coverage on T.V., newspapers and websites.

The majority of the Bus Tour materials created were to incur as low a cost as possible, utilizing Avery kiss-cut stickers of various sizes and shapes (because you can purchase them anywhere in the U.S.), so traveling PR and Media staff could output and assemble Press Packages, State Binders, Flyers and Itinerary while traveling in the bus on the road.
