Salt Lake Tribune Paywall

Salt Lake Tribune Paywall

When Utah’s leading daily newspaper switched to a paid online subscription model (known in the industry as a “paywall”) in early 2018, Tribune management contracted Love Communications to develop a comprehensive marketing campaign in support of the new message. Result? A multi-phase branding campaign that underscored the Tribune’s prominence in the community and its vital role in our society. The commercial asked the questions: “What’s the price of democracy? What’s the price of transparency? What’s the price of independence?” And the answer is, “7.99 per month."

BioFire Diagnostics

BioFire Diagnostics

Look at your typical biotech ad, and you’ll see a stock photo model peering pensively into a beaker of blue liquid. Not exactly awe-inspiring stuff. But with a fun, unique campaign featuring hand-illustrated bugs representing common pathogens, we’ve kept BioFire’s target audience of doctors and clinical directors engaged with interactive pieces like a custom Rubik’s Cube, a hand-drawn children’s book, and a series of print ads featuring special glasses that allowed viewers to “find the culprit” that was making their patient sick.

Mountain West Hard Cider

Mountain West Hard Cider

In a place where liquor laws are more of a punchline than a tourist attraction, how do you help Utah’s first producer of handcrafted hard cider break into the beverage market? First, you make sure the product is good—and we tested it extensively (purely for research purposes, of course). Then we captured the attention of craft-beverage enthusiasts by building an ultra-premium brand image that just so happened to win a bunch of awards. And it’s working—Mountain West is now distributing across multiple state lines, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Luminaria

Luminaria

How do you make a million-dollar walkthrough light display stand out even more? With a fully integrated campaign including radio spots, extended outdoor boards, mass transit ads, and the shining star—a hand-animated TV spot that perfectly captured the wonder and mystique of Luminaria. Word got out, and Thanksgiving Point saw an outstanding turnout in the first year of this all-new experience.

The People Behind the Science

The People Behind the Science

Microbiology mogul BioMérieux was ready to step away from the stereotypical image of masked scientists in lab coats and give their well-established brand a more human touch. The People Behind the Science campaign put the spotlight on the oft-overlooked individuals driving BioMérieux’s industry-leading technology, and was well-received among its target audience of microbiologists, quality-control experts, and other pharmaceutical and personal-care professionals who have historically remained behind the scenes.

Robinson Fans

Robinson Fans

If industrial fans don’t immediately spring to mind when you think about opportunities to build an envelope-pushing brand, you’d probably be with the majority. But that’s exactly why we gave Robinson Fans—the most trusted name in industrial air-moving solutions—a powerful and unexpectedly bold brand identity everywhere from their gritty visual style to their witty, punchy brand voice.

Bringing Confidence to the Table

Bringing Confidence to the Table

Food safety is serious business—so it makes sense that traditionally, it’s an industry that’s been marketed using photos of Petri dishes and somber scientific jargon. But we were looking for a new way to inspire confidence among BioMérieux’s food-industry customers. For the launch of their new GENE-UP pathogen-testing platform, we developed an innovative campaign featuring hand-drawn illustrations that depict the ultimate goal of the food and beverage industries: delivering fresh, delicious—and most importantly, safe and pathogen-free food.

Google Fiber

Google Fiber

When Google Fiber needed media coverage for the launch of their third U.S. market, we were faced with the challenge of pitching a big story without divulging any of the juicy details. Even while negotiations were still being finalized, we created tons of pre-announcement buzz and secured attendance at the official announcement from every major local news outlet. Google Fiber’s arrival literally became front-page news throughout Utah, and the follow-up media tour and interviews with local leaders and Google execs were a huge success by all accounts.
