Design Just Might Save Lives

“Flatten the curve.” Thanks (or no thanks) to COVID-19, this phrase has become part of our daily vocabulary. It’s everywhere: in headline news, on social media, and chats between co-workers and friends. Just one month ago, we hadn’t even heard of it, even though this debilitating disease was sweeping through Asia.

Fast forward to today and we are in the midst of a global pandemic. For me, it feels unworldly. It’s like we’re trapped in an apocalyptic sci-fi movie except there’s no Brad Pitt in sight to save us. Read More

Fisher-Price launched a brand refresh effort in December of 2019. The work done by Pentagram, Wieden+Kennedy and Fisher-Price is a masterclass on brand expression. The coordination of different agencies, contrasted brand history, varied expressions across multiple touchpoints for multiple products, and a pitch-perfect execution like this doesn’t happen by accident. You would be forgiven if you thought that with money, size, and ubiquity, a brand refresh effort like this would be relatively common. Not easy, but certainly not a risky endeavor. Read More

Will SXSW Hottest Trends Live Outside SXSW?

As covered in a slew of other blog posts covering SXSW, there was one tech trend that climbed above the others this year, the geo-location meetup. Think of it as using your mobile phone location for connecting rather than just broadcasting.

Good Clients Make Good Friends

I ran across this post today and really like it. Sometimes in the day-to-day stress of the job we need a little reminder.
Treat clients like friends:

Understand they have bad days, good days, days they need you and days they need to be left alone
Give them a second chance if they make a mistake
Give them a hand when you can
They have different levels of knowledge (sometimes you have to walk them through things)
Show them something new, Read More

It’s Finally Here

We’ve worked with College World Series of Omaha, Inc for many years. In fact, our involvement goes way back to the beginning when one of our founders and a group of Omaha businessmen convinced the NCAA to bring the tournament to Omaha. It’s a lot of work, but it’s a labor of love for everyone involved. And every year is special. However, this year is extra special, new and exciting. New place, new traffic patterns, Read More

Department of the Interior Takes Urban Office Space from Tired to Inspired — How Bozell Got Beautiful

Behind the Scenes at the Borsheims Engagements Photo Shoot

In late May the Bozell team embarked on a two-day photo and video shoot capturing images for Borsheims’ 2011/2012 Engagements campaign.  This is the first time Borsheims has used custom lifestyle photography to create an emotional connection with consumers.  The campaign aims at capturing the intimate slice-of-life moments a couple shares every day – from a simple glance to a foot nudge under the breakfast table.  These are the little things that create a couple’s forever.  Read More

If You Want Something Done Right…

You don’t necessarily have to do things yourself if you want it done right, but sometimes, it can be awfully rewarding. We’ve got a flurry of activity going on around the office in advance of our open house. It’s not just the cleaning and organizing and standard preparations that you’d expect. We’re building furniture, moving walls, rearranging furniture, hanging signs and lights – we’re designing our space and creating a special environment. And it’s a lot of fun.
