What is it they say about the cows coming home? And pigs flying? Who would have thought the inflatable varieties of these barnyard critters would help raise funds for charity? According to Viviana Durand, Project Manager for The CE Group event marketing company, it was the "adorable" factor that landed these inflatable mascots their starring role at the race.
St. Louis country station WIL92 wanted to update their branding and also make a splash at local events. In a competitive market, they needed a mascot that would connect with their audience and command attention in a crowded venue.
Successfully shepherding a crowd of rowdy kids is a challenge, and that's just what the team at School-a-Thon does every day at schools across the country. Needless to say, fun always works well as a motivator for children. When School-a-Thon needed a way to huddle up all the kiddos, they chose an inflatable archway to clearly mark the starting line of their popular Color-a-Thon races.
If you live in a crowded city with housing that is very close together (townhouses, condos, apartments, etc.) chances are you have had an experience with bed bugs. If not, you most likely know someone else who has dealt with these critters.
Unless they live near an ocean (and have extremely good timing), most adults and children will never see an actual fin whale. It's a shame, really, because they are such massive and amazing animals. That's one reason the Blue Ocean Society set out on a mission to protect marine mammals in the Gulf of Maine through education, research and conservation.
Supporting teachers' salaries in grades K-3, school construction and repairs, college scholarships and more, the NC Education Lottery is an important source of funding for the state.
To raise awareness and encourage ticket sales during the launch of its new MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES' CLUB™ lottery game, the NC Education Lottery called on Landmark Creations. The project? To develop an inflatable marketing balloon shaped like the most iconic game piece ever made: the top hat.
It is usually only in cartoons or sci-fi movies that we see the virtual crossing over into reality. However, visitors to Boston Harbor and the Harbor Arts Festival 2014 got to take in a new exhibit titled #YES.
Artist Brian Kane premiered the first in this ongoing series of inflatable sculptures (OMG!) at the Harbor Arts Festival in 2013. The second installment carries another common online expression into the real world by putting physical form to a hashtag.
"As the marketing department, our goal is to increase fan engagement at athletic events to create a memorable experience for our fans and student athletes," says John Geren, Assistant Director of Marketing & Fan Development at the University of Arkansas. The challenge can be finding something that fans of all ages appreciate and want to interact with. How did he do it?
When you think of a traditional inflatable money machine, images of dollars flying through the air as contestants frantically flail their arms in an effort to catch as much cash as possible come to mind. But what if the participants were grabbing for trash instead of cash?
Fall in Texas is all about football. Few can resist the allure of Friday night lights as high school teams snap the ball and crack some helmets to the roar of faithful crowds. Team spirit on this level is nothing to jeopardize, so when the Denison Yellow Jackets Athletic Boosters needed to update their inflatable tunnel, they called on Landmark yet again. Being impressed with the quality and durability of their previous tunnel, they were looking for a repeat performance from Landmark Creations.
Remember snow globes from your childhood? Those small handheld toys could be shaken until the scenery inside was surrounded by a flurry of "snow" suspended in water. The effect was fascinating to watch. Now these whimsical toys have been brought to life through the magic of inflatable costumes!
With a venue that offers a variety of entertainment options in a hugely competitive market, Brooklyn Bowl of Las Vegas needed something to help them stand out from the crowd. A pair of colorful inflatable bowling pin characters did the trick and have been a big hit with fans.
Chris White, Senior Vice President of Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, says, "We wanted to use the inflatables as a way to garner greater attention and interest at our front door and as décor for group events held inside."
If the streets of Corpus Christi look a little deserted this Friday night, it's probably because everyone is cheering on their favorite team. This town takes their football seriously, and the Tuloso Midway Warriors are up to the challenge. Not only do they play a top-notch game, but they love to put on a show, and that starts with an attention-grabbing run onto the field. They knew a giant inflatable helmet would help set the tone for a fantastic game, so they turned to Landmark Creations.
If ever there was a case for affinity, it can clearly be made with the combination of food marketing and inflatable product replicas. Inspira Marketing (an experiential marketing company) has seen this success combo many times in the past, which is why they regularly call on Landmark Creations to develop new, eye-popping balloons for event marketing campaigns.
Rebranding a company takes work. Once you've depended on a brand for years, breaking away and moving in another direction (even if it is a better, more representative one) can be a challenge. That's one reason United Shore approached Landmark Creations about developing a giant inflatable logo for their company fair.
