Visit Napa Valley: Copy


Any chance I get to put my words on a luxury brand, I get excited. When Visit Napa Valley (a non-profit marketing destination site) invited me onto their team, I was more than pleased to add a little “granache” to their visual refresh. I think you will be, too.

As part of the larger Project Potential campaign, “Keep the Smiles Coming” was a Lunchables “Now with Fruit” launch — as well as a collaboration with Feeding America to get more fresh fruit to kitchens, food pantries and shelters.

Anchored by OOH executions in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, this was the biggest advertising and cause-related marketing campaign in its brand history, featuring: a  robust social media campaign encouraging people to upload ‘Fruit Smile’ photos to drive fruit donations; a Times Square takeover with 7 digital video billboards; 5 interactive digital storefronts with facial-recognition technology (enabling people to update and share ‘Fruit Smile’ photos); and a mobile tour with interactive fruit-themed games, and a photo booth.

Ritz: Interactive Ad

Built on top of the original EuroRSCG “Open for Fun” campaign, we asked thousands of Americans to take our survey and tell us what they considered fun. Then I  leveraged the results into an in-banner gaming experience. The result? 4 times more interaction than any previous benchmarks!
