Inside the Cove
The Allure of Advertising Cove will demonstrate how graphic design and branding continue to evolve and effect consumers through all the senses. From radio to video, print to experiential, marketing is constantly pushing the edges to find new ways to engage and excite people. The A.D. Creative Cove will immerse people in memorable advertising campaigns from past to present. Expect the color theme to change throughout the evening to visually represent the different allures of advertising. The team explains, “Color has always played a vital role in advertising, so it will be a prominent feature in our cove.”
When asked if they’ve experienced any bumps in the road, the A.D. team notes the biggest challenge has been narrowing down the plethora of ideas to best incorporate everything into their Cove’s space in a way that delivers maximum impact.
At A.D. Creative Group, everything they do is about the brand – whether it’s their own brand or their clients’ - the focus is always on bringing creative ideas and solutions to the table, and their Cove will be no different. Their Cove provides the opportunity to showcase this team’s innate artistry and creativity when it comes to branding.
When asked what excites their team about REVEL, the A.D. Team shares that they're enjoying putting their creativity to the test. They add that “REVEL is a great way for people in Billings to come together and promote new ideas and new ways of thinking. We look forward to inspiring and entertaining others with our Cove and being inspired and entertained in return by the other coves and participants.”
