Creative Lead + Copywriter (David Butler), Strategy (Rachel Darivoff), Design (Monica Herman, Joyce Chiang, & Christa Seta), Production (Kat Graves)

THE ASK: Miller Lite was sponsoring a number of music festivals and wanted to find a way to reach young fans — but light beer is a crowded category, and music festivals are a crowded space. To stand out you have to do more than just show up with some phone chargers. In short, Miller Lite needed a strong POV.

OUR SOLUTION: We helped Miller Lite stand out by standing for what really matters: the music.

While most brands were focused on the superficial parts of festivals (VIP sections, selfies, etc.), we we built a bar for the real fans and developed the way Miller Lite walks, talks, and acts in music — something that also permeated all of our social posts, digital banners, and swag.

 

Now in its 3rd year, the project proved so successful Miller has decided to treat us as their lead music strategy agency, consulting with us on everything from paid media to social.

MY ROLE:

  • Developed, pitched, and sold the concepts/executions

  • Supported our strategist in creating a social playbook

  • Oversaw execution to maintain creative vision

  • Continue to work as lead creative on Miller business

THE MANIFESTO

Music festivals used to be about muddy fields, friends,

and most of all: the music.

 

Then came kimchi tacos, flower crowns,

and the VVIPs with their cabanas.

 

What happened to showing up for the opener, staying for the last

last last encore, and screaming yourself hoarse?

 

We’ve had enough, and we're taking a stand.

 

Forget festival fans — this summer

we’re going to raise one up for music fans.
