Skiin - CoolMini Campaign

Dot-Ten-Creative-Direct-Mail-Skiin

Skiin Anti-Aging Lounge needed to make the a hard topic for some woman approachable. We've all heard the term before, "Turkey Neck". It's not the most endearing description, but for many woman it is what they see in the mirror.

Skiin is one of the first spas in the Milwaukee area to obtain the CoolMini. The CoolMini allows them to treat the neck and chin area. They wanted to capture the dramatic results in an advertising campaign but also raise the issue of the "Turkey Neck" in an approachable way. Dot Ten worked with Skiin to develop a multi tiered campaign that was cohesive, friendly, and even a little fun. By creating the character of the turkey and placing it in an ornate mirror, the unpleasant topic becomes less serious. The results are clearly shown and the type is bold and clear. The Turkey Neck campaign launched in 3 parts... a direct mail campaign, a billboard in Mayfair Mall, and a full page ad in THINKlocal Magazine.

Go Bulldog's!!!!

Last week Dot Ten Creative and West Allis Blue wrapped up an interior environmental project that we're pretty excited about. West Allis Central High School is a short walk away from our offices and being involved with their design projects has been a goal of ours. 

The process started by deciding what type of graphic would go on the walls and where they would be placed. Dot Ten Creative worked with the school to refine the mascot logo and modernize it. Once that was nailed down, typography was chosen and defined for the large type graphics. Once all designs were approved, they moved over to West Allis Blue Large Format Printing for all printing and preparation for installation. All graphics were installed and look great! We can't wait to work with the High School on more projects in the future.

Client: Southwestern Suburban Symphony

 
 

Dot Ten Creative has been working with the upcoming non-profit Southwestern Suburban Symphony to help shape their brand. We met with Christine, the director, in February to discuss how we could assist in the materials to get her non-profit up and running. We started with a round of mock ups showing potential logos and web designs. From there we refined the logo to a final. Next, we tackled the stationary and business cards that Christine needed to start fundraising. Next on the agenda, a stunning website to inform the public and donors. We are working on this now and can't wait to see how this project continues to take shape.

Watch for the Symphony's first performance in late Summer 15'. More info can be found here.
