Love this campaign by North for Cover Oregon. Elevating what could be a mud-throwing political debate into a larger space, celebrating Oregon and Oregonians, that most people can agree with. And, not trying to sell the service, but introducing and raising awareness of the service before they get into specifics.  ”Long Live Oregonians” - :60 (by Cover Oregon)

Is your focus on the core customer holding back your brand?
For anyone at Outdoor Retailer trade show, MercuryCSC Jeff Welch is leading a seminar on the risks associated with (mis)aligning your brand with the core customer. Friday, Noon, at the Marriott. 
For those not attending, we’ll be live-streaming the event here and on Mercury’s Facebook page.
Joining Jeff will be Orvis Product Development Specialist Steve Hemkens, ExOfficio General Manager Steve Bendzak, and NOLS Director of Admissions and Marketing Bruce Palmer.
They will discuss their brands’ struggles and successes balancing very enthusiastic core audiences and efforts to expand into other markets.
Also, former Patagonia and Prana executive Rich Hill will resurface to discuss his new venture, Ticla, and how he is taking advantage of a clean slate to position the brand to the most broad audience possible.
See you there.
