Atomic Dog Hard Cider
Atomic Dog is a leading producer of hard cider in the North East. With ownership recently changing hands, the brand was looking to make a big push for national exposure and distribution. With consumers drinking less, but drinking up, Atomic Dog was in a unique position to tell an ingredient story and take market share from a stagnating hard seltzer category to increase their footprint across the country. With category leaders like Angry Orchard or Strongbow unable to capture the attention of the better for you consumer, Atomic Dog set out to capture consumer and distributor attention in a big way.

The aviation industry changed dramatically after 9/11 with pilot training coming to a virtual halt which resulted in a deficit of qualified pilots today.

Rebrand and Campaign
Think Small is Minnesota’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to providing early childhood education to children 0-5 and supporting those who help along the way. This included not only educational services, financial support but also a traditional publishing division, Red Leaf Press. Think Small was looking to expand their reach which meant they needed to create cohesive messaging and narrative around all facets and divisions of the organization – from serving and educating providers to connecting parents with resources and informing public policy and advocacy. Their long-term goal is to be the country’s number one resource for early childhood education.
White Claw Hard Seltzer
When the parent brand, Mark Anthony Brands (known for Mike’s Hard Lemonade) launched White Claw Hard Seltzer, the spiked sparkling seltzer category was a niche regional category. Without cannibalizing their existing product offering, the parent company developed a truly innovative product for the active, health-conscious consumer who was looking for a flavored adult-beverage alternative to light beer. It was our job to bring the product to market.
