Barry’s Bail Bonds
Advertising – Integrated Campaign

Art Director: Audrey Creamer – 3rd Quarter
Copywriter: Benjamin Creamer – 3rd Quarter

There are only two countries in the world where bond agents are standard practice. One is the Philippines. We’ll let you guess the other.

Jail isn’t funny and shit happens. We want to humanize a dehumanizing process. Making the ads memorable, share-worthy, and a little cutting makes them something you’d take a photo of. Which means you have the number of a bondsman in your phone. You know, just in case.

(Bonus: Go ahead and call Barry. He may be at the courthouse; feel free to leave a message.)

Keep It Noist
Advertising – Integrated Campaign

Art Director: Lauren Byers – 7th Quarter
Copywriter: Taylor Hagin – 7th Quarter

Moist has consistently been voted the most hated word in America. Yet, cuts heal best when they are clean, moist and covered. Let’s take back the word moist and make it the go-to word in healing. How? By creating a word of our own: Noist. Which means nice and moist. Spread on some noist Neosporin and feel better. Whatchu got against moisture?
