The Brief: choose a business problem and solve it with a multimedia campaign
Alfred Tea Room is a small tea room on Melrose Avenue known among female millennials for its Instagram-worthy pink interior and paper cups.  Our campaign,  #ActiviTEA targeted local, health-conscious 18-30 year-old males and females in order to expand and diversify Alfred's market, increasing sales.  Below, I've included the pieces I helped write and design, but you can find my whole partner presentation here.
​​​​​​​60 second Radio Spot
West Hollywood is known for its flamboyant gay male population and this radio spot targets them specifically.

30 second TV spot
YouTuber Ali Collier stars in this sassy tv spot that satirizes the stereotype of West Hollywood millennials.  It acknowledges that Alfred Tea Room is known for its Instagrammable decor and cups, but the last phrase reinforces our overall campaign of activiTEA and having a healthy lifestyle.

This billboard would be made of transparent material so that you could see the sky behind it.  The idea is that it looks like someone is making a toast and raising the cup of tea to the sky.  The copy works with the campaign because tea is healthier than alcohol and it fits with our theme of having healthy lifestyle.

Banner Ad Quiz
This would be a banner ad on sites like Facebook where customers will be re-targeted.  It will be a Buzzfeed-type quiz and members of the target market will be asked several questions about their lifestyle and habits to determine which tea they should try at Alfred Tea Room.  They will be able to share their results with their friends on social media.

Mobile Rewards App
This ActiviTEA Rewards app would work with the iPhone Health app to track how much walking/running people do per day.  There would be a points system that works with how far you have walked/ran.  For example, 10,000 steps would equal one point, and after you get 30 points, you get a free drink at Alfred Tea Room.  This app could also connect to your Facebook account to share your route and how many points you have to your Facebook friends.

Yoga Mats
Alfred Activitea yoga mats will be for given to local yoga studios and gyms in West Hollywood.  The dot in the upper left-hand corner is a place to put their cup of tea.

Tea Fountain
Install pink tea fountains along streets near Alfred Tea Room, outside local gyms and yoga studios, and public parks so people can try Alfred Tea.

Alfred 5k
Alfred Tea Room would sponsor a 5k in West Hollywood because it promotes a healthy lifestyle and is a reasonable distance for the experienced runners and recreational walkers.  Facts about tea and sassy phrases will be painted on the pavement of the course and Alfred tea and other products will be at the finish line.
