Ventyx World. More than a typical corporate event.
From the very beginning of the process it was clear that Ventyx had to change the hearts and minds of its customers. The company had recently ushered in a new CEO and the software had received a major overhaul. Most important, Ventyx needed to break free from old perceptions and stereotypes. With the help of first-class agency partner Jack Morton and veteran event specialist, Allison Saget, Ventyx World was a huge turnaround for the company's personality. Based in San Francisco, the event left audiences inspired by the company's new vision and a clear sense of what the new brand represented.

Help a local Argentinean food truck increase chimichuri consumption.
Tanguito is an Argentinean grill that serves up outstanding authentic cuisine. Located at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, the restaurant is a little off the beaten path for locals and most business comes from passing tourists. Aesthetically, the truck is a little rough around the edges but more than makes up for it with delicious and unapologetically rich food. The poster campaign was designed to draw in more foot traffic by showcasing hero shots of the food with punchy headlines. Weekly specials are posted on twitter to keep locals coming back as well.
