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.
When small startup churches need a place to meet, they often congregate in whatever affordable space is available. Case in point: one of The Life Church's six campuses currently occupies a movie theater. Having a need to direct children and parents to the kids' area (and a desire to make it fun and inviting), The Life Church reached out to Landmark Creations for help.
Pulling off a successful concert tour means having a wicked-cool design company behind you. From stage design to inflatable stage props, Look Up Point Design added dynamics, innovation and a serious dose of "Wow" to Neon Trees' Pop Psychology tour. The crowning touch was when they commissioned Landmark Creations to develop a truly one-of-a-kind inflatable.
"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.
All hail the purple… eagle? Yep! Niagara University wanted to transform their school mascot (Monte the purple eagle) into a giant, 20-foot-tall inflatable. We were happy to oblige.
While Monte is regularly seen cheering on the hockey and basketball team, and roaming about the grounds, the university wanted an inflatable mascot that could literally and figuratively create a larger presence of school spirit on campus. Bill Newton, Assistant Director of Campus Activities, explains, "We wanted to get the attention of our students, faculty, staff, and other members of the campus community, including our guests, prospective students and families, and all of our Purple Eagles fans."
When you think of organized running, visions of fierce competitors straining to beat the best times of their opponents probably come to mind. However, running isn’t always about winning and road races aren’t only about rivalry. Just ask the members of the Pacific Road Runners Club.
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.
Does this sound like you? "We have always rented inflatables for our events mostly from manufacturers. We were paying to promote other brands." Like many small businesses, it seems logical at first to rent large promotional items instead of buying your own. However, the problem with this approach is that those other inflatables are generic.
If you’ve hung around any college students, you’ve certainly noticed one thing. These young adults spend a lot of time on social media. What are they talking about? Everything from the state of politics in our country to how extremely cool the new inflatable mascot looked on their parade float.
