Spotlight On NW Creative: We Are Timbers

Portland Timbers wisely extended their out-of-home advertising campaign–currently draped on many exterior walls of commercial buildings in urban Portland–by offering to let fans of the team get their photos taken in the same style as the ads.
Participants in the team’s “We Are Timbers” fan photo shoot were provided with downloads of their photos, already cropped and sized for upload to use as profile pictures on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr, Linkedin, wherever. So it spreads!

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
