Millennium Library Capital Campaign
       
     
Millennium Library Capital Campaign

As an employee of Tangent Strategies, Inc., I helped conceive a marketing strategy for the Millennium Library Foundation. Consisting of a tabloid-theme, the successful campaign paired sensationalistic headlines with bright, intriguing imagery to capture the attention of the pop-culture generation and educate them on all that can be found in their local library branch while also soliciting donations in order to "fill the shelves" with more books. The campaign was so popular, people requested (and even put bids in) to keep the in-branch printed banners. Transit advertising, a brochure and direct-mail were also part of the project's scope (2007).

As part of a pro-bono initiative, Oblada Creative helped Winnipeg Animal Services with their 2010 fundraising calendar. To differentiate the piece against similar promotional items that other shelters were distributing, we made it also serve as a guide book for local dog owners and included information on local veterinarians, seasonal hazards, and listings of the best places to take your pet for a stroll (2009). 

Winnipegdogs.com
       
     
Winnipegdogs.com

I created Winnipegdogs.com, a "dog blog" focusing on local news, reviews, tales and tails, in January 2008. The blog gained a readership of over 2500 unique visitors a month and spawned a fanpage on Facebook, all with little promotion besides word-of-mouth and utilizing elementary social marketing techniques. Using the blog to "pay it forward", I run seasonal advertising blitzes wherein any business that makes a donation towards the care of animals at the pound receives complimentary advertising for a month (2008-2011).
