This highly esteemed networking group of our community’s leaders called on us to design and help roll out their ‘One Great CEO’ membership drive and email campaign. We left our kickoff meeting with solid game-plan.

Their goal for this campaign was to incorporate email marketing with copy-writing, photography, and illustration to highlight members of the Council in order to attract potential new members.

capturing our audience

We worked alongside the VA CEOs team to schedule and execute three photoshoots of 17 individuals over the course of two weeks. Photo editing was also involved in this phase of the project.

weaving our story

Hand illustrations were drawn for each CEO based on their companies, personalities, and hobbies. We worked closely with the VA CEOs team to discuss which elements were best to include for each CEO and how to incorporate them together.
