When it comes to integrating your agency's brand, few do it like the Plaid crew.
Last year, I met up with them at a skanky bar in Fair Park to hoist a cold one at the conclusion of their tour across the states, spreading buttons and brand fever in a swarm of twittering, vlogging, blogging, flickering, and general craziness not seen since Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Pranksters took the New York World's Fair by storm in a dayglo bus full of acid freaks.
But where Ken Kesey's resulting maelstrom of film footage and recordings was a jumbled mess pieced together by folks with few brain cells to spare, Plaid turned their winding tour of the states into a new business machine with results.
And not only that, they've preseeded likeminded bloggers (me, Dave at Jetpacks, etc.) with a pre-tour shwag drop to help them promote it.
So I'm doing my part: Check it out.
My PLAID-SHWAG goodie kit has arrived w/ tshirt, button and keychain. Thanks Plaid!
