Breadshop Identity by Wall-to-Wall Studios wins Brand New Award

March 29, 2013


Congratulations to our client Breadshop, whose corporate identity system won a spot in this year's Brand New Awards. 714 entries were submitted and 75 winners were announced last week. Here's what the organizers themselves had to say about it:


"Just when you think judges can’t get any tougher, they do. And this crop of judges proved especially hard to please. Unimpressed by recycling of styles or great visuals that didn’t match the client, they all looked for something unexpected, surprising, and/or meaningful. Perhaps when we asked the judges to be tough we didn’t expect them to select the lowest amount of entries yet in our three-year run, despite there being almost 200 entries more than the first year when the judges at the time selected 90 entries. But one rule we have is that there is no minimum quota of projects we need to include. Whatever bubbles to the top makes it. Simple as that."


We're proud of our collaboration with Breadshop founder Christopher Sy, and apparently lots of other folks in Hawaii are fond of his work too.

See You At The Pittsburgh Addy Awards Show Tonight.

March 1, 2013


Wall-to-Wall Studios will be represented at the Pittsburgh American Advertising Awards show tonight at the Carnegie Science Center, both in the audience and during the category announcements. The 2012-2013 Addys bring together the local marketing industry celebrating the best advertising, design and interactive work from the past year. A few years back, the Pittsburgh Advertising Federation decided to offer its talented pool of members the opportunity to create introductory videos for categories in the contest. This year will see the debut of a rap video starring a W|W co-founder along with a W|W alum (see the video here):


"The stars of the video -- James Nesbitt of North Side-based Wall-to-Wall Studios and Matt Hildebrand of Mullen, in the Strip District -- recorded the audio ahead of time and then lip-synched. That was trickier than it sounds." 


Read more at the Pittsburgh Post Gazette article. Or see you tonight on the big screen.

Wall-to-Wall Studios Teaches Class on the Power of Emotion in Branding at Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management at RMU

December 2, 2012


Wall-to-Wall Studios' partners Larkin Werner and Pete Popivchak taught a class that focused on the power of emotion in branding at the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management at Robert Morris University. The Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management was founded in 1999 to provide the necessary tools for nonprofit organizations to effectively manage and compete in today's society.


All of us are subjected to advertising, branding and marketing messages on a daily basis, whether we want it or not. Most say this type of messaging is annoying noise that clutters our lives, and much of it ends up being forgettable. However, making an emotional connection can often have the opposite effect: A consumer may choose to remember the brand or messaging, because it perhaps was unexpected, made them laugh, or even made them cry. In addition to leading a discussion on the topic, "I Laughed, I Cried, I Remembered: How Humor, Emotion and Wit make for Memorable Branding", the W|W instructors also shared insights on branding for nonprofits & key tips on developing a successful relationship with a branding/design firm.
