We love working on projects with Asheville CVB, and it’s particularly exciting when those projects are innovative and designed to really showcase the beauty of our region. The Science Behind Fall Color was a multi-media web presentation, mixing video, google earth, pictures, time lapse photography, and text to beautifully present the science and create a uniquely Asheville experience.
It was a pleasure to see the project was well received when it was launched, and we were thrilled that the CVB were so confident in it that they entered it for a a MarCom award – And it won in the category of Brand Journalism!
