Poster Promo

October 7th, 2009

creativemix_mini-posterHave you seen the poster? We’ve been spreading the word in lots of ways but this one has been the most fun so far (AKA the blender fish). Other than the fact that it’s a bit sadistic it’s been really effective – it’s catching people’s eye and getting them to stop for a moment, read the details, and it’s sticking in their heads. What else could we ask for? We wanted to make sure we didn’t create a bunch of waste so we only printed 400 posters and we have been placing them in locations where community or poster boards are managed (that’s right, no phone polls, mailboxes, or construction walls) which works out well because one poster will last 2 or 3 weeks verses 2 or 3 hours.

It hasn’t exactly been all peachy keen however. I was talking about CREATIVEMIX with someone at a party last week and when I mentioned the poster they responded with: “Oh, that’s you?! I’ve seen that poster! I really liked it, in fact, I’m thinking of buying a new blender.” I guess you can’t win them all.

Anyway, if you see one of our posters do this: stop, point, and yell “What a great poster! What a cool conference! I’m going to visit double u double u double u dot creative mix dot C A right now!” You won’t look like a dork at all.

A special note for Diane Haynes: no goldfish were hurt in the making of this poster.
