Here’s a fun little game next time you’re in the cereal aisle at your local grocery store. Take a close look at the children’s cereal boxes - notice any similarities in the characters?
As a kid I was a huge fan of Cocoa Pebbles® because I felt like I had a friend in Fred Flintstone – but could never figure out why. Could it be that as a child, eating chocolate for breakfast was the greatest thing ever, so I HAD to have it? Or, was it that most, if not all, of these cereal box characters were drawn to make me feel like they were looking right at me? This simple but clever marketing shows that a little research goes a long way. These characters are looking down because as kids, we were looking up. Unbeknownst to me, I was having a personal connection through eye…5 comments
Nearly every college campus has a set of traditions and sports rivals.
The same goes for the alma mater of our Creative Director, Phil Mowrey (@philmowrey).
Every other year, Phil returns to the campus of Wabash College in Indiana to experience the football rivalry with DePauw University. One of his sons, David (@DavidIWright), and his daughter,Hannah (@Hmowrey), join him on the trip.

Bet you didn’t know that our very own Jodie Lynn Mowrey, Director of SEO/SEM, choreographs musicals in her spare time, did ya? Jodie’s latest work comes from an Evansville, IN production of the Wizard of OZ at Central High School.
She has been spending many hours over the last two months, choreographing over 100 high school and elementary school kids!
We’ve asked Jodie what it was like working with 71 elementary children (who performed as Munchkins), and how in the world do you get that many kids performing the same steps at the same time? “The trick is to choose steps the kids think are fun. Then they pay attention, are eager and watch each other to stay together,” said Jodie. “But it was very hard work to coordinate so many little ones;…
