  • The Client: DOWNTOWNSyracuse

    The Objective:

    To create awareness and convenience for Syracuse University

    Students.

  • The Competition...

    Marshall Street: Located conveniently, directly outside of the Syracuse University campus is a hub for student shopping. It offers a selection of food and fun for every taste and interest. The downside is the inflated prices and overcrowding because so many students frequent there.

    Carousel Center: Located about 10 minutes away from Syra-cuses Campus, the mall is home to a number of Stores, Res-taurants, and Entertainment options. The largest of which is the cinema complex located on the top floor of the mall. Buses from the universities run directly to the mall allowing first year students easy access.

    Fayetteville Towne Center: Located off campus, this is a highly frequented area due to the value it offers. Included in the plaza is a Target which allows shoppers to fulfill a number of needs in one building.

  • DOWNTOWNSyracuseSo far...

    Th e purpose of this cam-paign is to raise awareness to possible new businesses to come rent space downtown. It is also suppose to attract people to explore the area that is constantly growing.

    } Th ese are the current logos that represent the downtown area.Th is is the new logo we have designed which incorporates the iconic orange that is oft en associated with Syracuse. It Umbrellas downtown as a whole area and gives it a modern look while still representing the community that has existed there for ages. Th e circular shape reminds us of all that can be found in just one place.

    The average Syracuse Student Thinks: DowntownSyracuse = Ghetto

  • CreativeBIG IDEA

    When you are annoyed by whats convenient around you, Go DOWNTOWN.

    We believe that when the student consumers become tired of the same old routine because its convenient, Downtown Syracuse can offer them a new unique experience.

  • Creative StrategyMeasurementWe want the number of Syracuse students to increase by 50% in Downtown Syracuse. We will measure this by the number of Facebook likes we get as well as the number of Twitter follows we have. We will also look at the number of people who have downloaded our app. After 1 year of implementing this plan we will give another survey exactly the same as our last one given to gather our current data. This should give us a good measurement of how students opinions and usage of the area have changed.
