Open Happiness!

A while back our company decided to have a contest....we were suppose to take our new jingle "Open Happiness" (push the listen up button, which BTW is so cute) and our "Live Positively " campaign (family, environment, community) and combine them into a creative medium (video, poem, art project) which interprets the song and the program, bringing them together in the most creative way we could....there were 3 fantastic prizes to be won, all VIP trips for you and your significant other to spend 4 nights at the Winter Olympics, which includes a stay at the Granville Hotel, all transportation, food and Olympics tickets, and other items estimated value $12000!!


Well how could I resist my creative soul jumped into action! No one could be as creative as me, right? But, I would be up against a lot of creative marketing folks...so I was a bit skeptical. I spent a whole lotta time planning and executing this little baby, only wish I could show everyone in person so much better in person when you can see the 3D, detail and dimension in it. I am so proud of how it came out and regardless of whether I won or not I had a great time planning and making it. Check out my Open Happiness Album (link Below). It was placed in a decorated box so it was like an exciting present to open for the judges. I wanted it to be fun, on the childish side, incorporating images from work and historical items and recycled items...most of all I wanted it to be whimsical....when you open the box you find an album, the first page opens up to be very simple with our moto on it. Underneath when you open it there is a quasi poem and lyrics that go with the new jingle. When you open this the jingle plays as well. Follow the "film" path through the album from the Spring to Winter....along the way you will see what makes me happy.....leading up to the possibility of being at the 2010 Winter Olympics!!








I wish I could figure out how to insert the slide show here, so unfortunately you have to click on the link and go to flicker to see it....also some of the photos are sideways, (did I ever tell you I am a bit computer challanged!!
