“Goodstock” Yields Great Billboards & Posters
Thanks to the generosity of Knupp & Watson & Wallman Ad Agency and Adams Outdoor Advertising
Last fall, Community Living Alliance benefited big time from “Goodstock,” the annual creative jam session staged by local advertising agency Knupp & Watson & Wallman (KW2).
One of only 12 local nonprofit organizations chosen, CLA provided background information to KW2 and then stood back. For the next 24 hours, including an all-nighter at the ad agency, the creative people at KW2 put all their energies and experience to work for CLA.
The results? Well, you can see for yourself on billboards around town. KW2 not only invented four different billboard ideas for CLA but also enlisted the big-hearted Adams Outdoor Advertising to donate the billboard space. Yes, as a bonus, Adams is providing free space for two billboards at a time, from December 2012 to July 2013, worth thousands of dollars to them and, in reality, a million to us! See the initial schedule for billboard locations – we’ll keep it updated so you can check out CLA’s very public presence.
And “Goodstock” just gets better. KW2 also developed a template for 11x17 posters that we can print and mount for display in our lobby and at resource fairs, community events and employment booths. Look here at the sample four posters KW2 created for us, using the brand new template.
From all of us here at CLA, we send a big Shout Out to the Goodstock crew at Knupp & Watson & Wallman and to Adams Outdoor Advertising. Thank you for the eye-catching, creative messages posted all over the area that let people know we’re here and ready to help people stay home and stay independent.
