Sandy Springs, Well Played

Sandy Springs is a city near Atlanta with all kinds of unique amenities like the Chattahoochee River, a video game bar called Battle & Brew, as well as interactive playground slash art museums that win awards.

But don’t take our word for it. Watch these videos we made for their Well Played campaign, which promotes the quirky, playful spirit of the city and all it has to offer.

The stats about domestic violence are alarming. Every year, the YWCA of Nashville & Middle Tennessee hosts their Spring Breakfast to raise funds and change those statistics. But stats are just stats. They’re numbers, not emotions. Figures, not faces. We aimed to bring those statistics to life with this video. We also aimed to raise a lot of money for the YWCA, and we did. To the tune of $350,000.

Burgerhead Takes Gwinnett By Burgerstorm

Since the beginning of time, brands have used sex to sell burgers. Not true for Explore Gwinnett, our client located in Gwinnett County Georgia. To promote Explore Gwinnett’s Burgers & Brews Week featuring 7 days of $7 burgers and beers, we decided to tap into a more meaningful story. Introducing: Burgerhead, the new face of Burgers & Brews Week.

For this campaign, we created the above social video featuring Burgerhead.

And even designed a billboard so Burgerhead could loom large over Atlanta highways:

This other video also got lots of likes and views and even shares.

We designed a print ad featuring Burgerhead! Here it is:

And guess what? Burgerhead made an actual appearance in Gwinnett County.

Burgerhead may even have his own cable TV series on Disney Channel3, a cousin of Disney Channel three times removed:

He doesn’t, though. This is just an illustration by Commonground Creative, LLC.

Tickets quickly sold out for this event, thanks to Burgerhead’s relatable and endearing story. And his beefy bod.

Osborn Barr Acquires Paramore, Holy Crap

Osborn Barr Acquires Paramore, Holy Crap

Osborn Barr (O+B), a full-service marketing communications agency with offices in St. Louis and Kansas City, has expanded their reach with the acquisition of Paramore Digital in Nashville, Tenn. Holy crap, that's us.

We’re ecstatic about the deal. It's a natural evolution for our agency. We've been collaborating with O+B for the past year and we couldn't have found a better suitor. We’re still the Paramore you know and love. Now we’re just better. More capabilities. Added talent. Great hair everywhere. It’s like when Mom married New Daddy and we got 125 new step-brothers and sisters. Hey, remember when New Daddy took us to Red Lobster in his muscle car and let us order Crab Legs AND Steak. That's how we feel today.

Check out more details about how this makes us better here.

After a long hiatus, Paramore is publishing a news story about Huffington Post publishing a news story about Hannah Paramore. Huffington Post shared this inspiring Women in Business Q&A with Hannah in October which we bookmarked and re-read in November because we were very busy. We were getting around to writing about Huffington Post’s article about Hannah’s experience working in something called “dot com startups” and her advice to working women but like we said, October was a crazy time for us. Read this HuffPo article to find out how Hannah maintains work/life balance and also the female leaders she admires, which she said in October but she probably still stands by in November. Way to be less lazy than us, Hannah!

Additionally, during production of the project, we rewatched all six seasons of "Community" even Season 4 which we still hate except for that Sadie Hawkins/Sophie B. Hawkins episode which was super cute and also had Oscar winner Brie Larson in it! Wow!

Paramore Helps YWCA Stop the Cycle

We’re honored to work closely with YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee on their annual Spring Breakfast, which grows awareness for domestic violence and raises funds for YWCA programs.

Paramore Launches Spectrum Reach Site, Puts MapQuest to Shame

Spectrum Reach, formerly Charter Media, asked Paramore to create a new website to match their new brand. We simplified messaging and cleaned up their site’s aesthetics with a complete redesign. Pretty spiffy. Check it out, especially that new Markets section. The map seems simple enough, and that’s the point. Our developers worked their database wizardry to get it there. Or maybe they’re actually wizards. We’ll never know.

Blake discussed Adobe Creative Cloud and how it’s streamlined processes in our agency here. He used the word “transformative.”

Read them both and vote for Matt in this season of The Sing Off, which is an a capella singing competition hosted by Nick Lachey that is not The Voice.
