Jan Johnson and her 3 sisters just completed their annual road trip wearing custom designed T-shirts that drew a lot of attention.  She came to us months ago with her ideas of what she was looking for.  Our designer took her ideas and created the graphical image she was after.  Within that image was a symbol for each of the 4 sister’s character.  Integrated into the design is an eagle that represented their mother. We had fun working with Jan on this project and are tickled to hear about the responses.

“Thanks again for these wonderful T-shirts.  It made our vacation even more special and it reinforced (as verbalized by many complete strangers) how fortunate we are to be sisters and best of friends. Our 4 brothers were jealous and want T-shirts!”

Every once in a while you encounter a truly remarkable experience that is rare, unforgettable and humbling.  I had one today when I received a package in the mail from a women whom I briefly met at a trade show in Bismarck, ND last April.  Her name is Theresa and she is involved with the North Dakota chapter of the Pink Heals Tour.  She shared with me what the Pink Heals Tour was about and we exchanged conversation of our loved ones who fought cancer.  The Pink Heals Tour slogan is “Driving for cancer. Driving for awareness. Driving across America”.  Image seeing a bright pink fire truck that promotes cancer research and carries with them a legacy of personal stories nationwide.  I’m in awe with their dedication, commitment and influence this group of people have made.

Thank you Theresa for sharing this story with me and the surprise package of your North Dakota Pink Heals Tour shirts and items.  We will wear them proudly and spread the word!

As Principal of Our Savior’s Lutheran School, I was interested in finding someone to tell our story – the story of our 50 years of providing quality Christian education in the Hutchinson, MN community.  The OSL School Board approved contracting with Moxie Media, a company with which OSL had previously done business.

Although I was familiar with and felt comfortable with Moxie Media’s personnel, I was sold on them working on this project after my initial meeting with LuAnn Drazkowski, project manager.  LuAnn’s attention to detail and her take charge manner were exactly what OSL and I needed.  Her organizational skills and her drive to complete the project on schedule were more than I expected.  The communication through e-mails and phone calls was exceptional.  The entire project proceeded like clockwork, even finishing ahead of schedule.  LuAnn was “in charge” the entire way, always pleasant, always communicating, always making sure we were pleased with the work being done and asking for our suggestions.  Thanks Moxie Media, and especially LuAnn, for helping us tell our story.

Our Savior's Lutheran School 50th Anniversary CD labelOur Savior’s Lutheran (OSL) School, Hutchinson, Minnesota, approached Moxie Media to discuss their interests in producing a 50-year commemorative video for an upcoming  50th Anniversary celebration of the school’s existence.   They desired a video that told their story over the five decades and honored the staff, students and parents who were a part of their school’s rich history.

The Project

After meeting with Principal Leland Huebner and learning more about the school and their intentions for the video, we met with the school’s project committee personnel to take in all they knew and what they were expecting of the video and any integral celebration efforts.  Moxie Media led the project from concept to delivery, teaming with the technical video expertise of Tony Smith, Free Ride Film Productions.

We identified the video opportunities that were on the school’s calendar and also key parishioners and former staff/students who would provide us with history details and their first-hand recollections.  We pored over many albums and photographs to assembly a chronology of the schools progression and interesting photos.  Photos were scanned and organized into a 5-decade timeline.   We took over 18 hours of videos from interviews, classroom, concerts, fundraising, and internal/external building.  A video story-board was created and approved by the committee.

The committee met monthly to report on progress, action items, and provided feedback/endorsement as the project took shape and progressed.  Principal Lee Huebner kept the School Board apprised of the project’s status and plans.

The committee reviewed a rough draft video and provided us with feedback on the video’s overall aesthetics, accuracy, and completeness.  We made revisions and came back with a second video review for the committee members.  Each video refinement heightened the video’s content quality.

Moxie’s management of the project kept it on track for time and budget as well as keeping all participants well informed.

A legacy

Not only did we provide Our Savior’s Lutheran School with a moving and exceptional 50-year video documentary, we also provided them with a hard drive that stored all the scanned images, interviews, and the final cut video for archival and retrieval.

Moxie is grateful for the opportunity to work on this project for Our Savior’s Lutheran School and has developed a great appreciation of the schools favorable impact on the community it serves.  We wish them continued success!

GVL's Harvest a Cure Campaign GVL owner, Allan Cronen, brought his  breast cancer fund-raising idea to Moxie Media.  His company manufactures poly replacement parts for corn heads and he wanted to leverage his manufacturing resources to heighten awareness of breast cancer and provide a means of giving to American Cancer Society’s research.  He developed special pink Wear Point tips and pin Dust Diverter products and committed to donating the profits from these sales to the cause.  We assisted him with the marketing and promotion of his concept.  We designed a campaign logo, t-shirts, hats and signage for his upcoming trade show displays.  We sent out 15,000 post cards announcing the fund-raising campaign.  The same day the post cards were hitting the combine owners mail boxes across the upper Midwest, Allan’s office phones were ringing off the hook with requests for the his Harvest a Cure merchandise.  We also sent out many press releases that have resulted in national attention to Harvest a Cure.  This has been a huge success and one that Allan plans to carry over for years to come.

This summer, Moxie Media participated as a sponsor in the Hutchinson Chamber Golf Tournament event.  We were set up at the 7th hole with a Hawaiian themed display and gave away metal water bottles to each golfer. We also gave away a prize worth $500 for a free logo design and printed material.

Park Towers won our prize and were excited for the opportunity to get a logo professionally designed.  We worked with Lorri Olson and Jean Ward on their design preferences and created several logo design concepts for them to review.  Both Lorri and Jean quickly came to a consensus on what they wanted for their Park Towers logo.

Lori has begun to use their new logo on communications and advertising.Get acquainted with Park Towers new logo!

If you are from or visiting the Hutchinson area, you likely have seen people wearing a gold colored T-shirt with the public school tiger logo on the front and their district’s values listed on the back-side.  There are over 550 of them out there!  Moxie Media was delighted to provide the Hutchinson Public, ISD 423, with these T’s that the entire staff wore on the first day of school.
The school district’s Administrative Assistant, Tina Vorlicek, coordinated with the staff to tabulate the assorted quantities and sizes needed.  We provided her with samples of different T-shirt sizes so staff members could try them on for individual size preferences.

We smile each time we see someone wearing the t-shirts and know we were a small part of helping deliver a unified appearance for the first day of the new 2010-2011 school year.

Scott Newman Fundraising mailer

Fundraising letter challenge: limited funds, running out of stock, time, and energy

Scott Newman came to Moxie Media seeking help with a daunting task he and his wife, Ginny, were undertaking for his District 18 Senate fundraising campaign.  They were manually printing and addressing a letter that included a remittance form insert to their strong GOP address list.  They would process about 60-80 per day, completed over 600, and had about 7000 more to go!  Needless to say, they were overwhelmed and questioning if this was a good use of their limited time.  By this time, Scott was getting down on supply of his preprinted letterhead, remittance envelopes, and mailing envelopes.  Time was running out because Scott needed all the remaining 7000 letters sent within 2 weeks. Scott also had to guard the limited funds he had to work with for this and other election campaigns. Scott knew he needed help but wasn’t sure what could be done to work through these issues.

The Creative and Practical Solution

Our team came up with the proposal to take Scotts existing 3-piece mailer and combine it all into a single 2-color 8.5” X 14” self-mailing folded layout.  This approach cut the cost down considerably.  We re-purposed Scott’s letter content so the key points caught the reader’s attention. We pulled the right resources together to confidently get the job done. We worked with Ginny to produce an address list for the remaining targeted addressees and that was formatted suitable for the mail house’s requirements. The job was completed within 2 weeks of Scott coming to our office and we stayed within Scott’s limited budget constraints!
