Logo that Lenz designed for the Brookhaven Census 2020.

Lenz is proud to work with the City of Brookhaven to promote its Census 2020 project. Our work for this initiative includes brand development, a multi-step marketing plan, paid advertising, and grass-roots promotion. Our goal is to help achieve a high rate of participation in the census, including among multiple audiences who speak varied languages, by educating and informing the community regarding the benefits of participation.

As stated on the 2020 Census website, “The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.”

It’s our pleasure to work for such an important cause and to assist in helping our nearby communities flourish. Check out the work we’ve done for the census so far below.

2018 was a fantastic year for Lenz, filled with many wonderful projects and new challenges. Check out the summary of this past year for #TeamLenz.

Lenz welcomes new partnerships

2018 saw the start of many wonderful relationships with incredible clients. Here are some of the newest clients Lenz partnered up with to create outstanding marketing content for:

    1. EyeSouth Partners: EyeSouth Partners is a premier network of integrated eye care practices located throughout the Southeast. 2018 marks the first year of the partnership between EyeSouth and Lenz, with Lenz providing its marketing and consulting services to the group and its affiliated practices, which include Georgia Eye Partners, Georgia Retina, and OPAL Aesthetics.
    2. Coolray, Mr. Plumber, and BriteBox: For over 50 years, Coolray has been trusted by Atlanta homeowners as the leader in HVAC, plumbing, and electrical services thanks to their highly skilled technicians and great value. We were ecstatic to bring on Coolray and their affiliated companies, Mr. Plumber and BriteBox, to the Lenz Family in 2018. In addition to creating advertisements, we’ve been managing social, SEO projects, and more for this three client addition.
    3. Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival: This March 30th through 31st, The Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival will usher in the spring season with a celebration of music, art, dogs, and food in the Brookhaven area. Team Lenz is proud to handle media buying, social media, and digital design to ensure they have a successful festival this year.
    4. Avant Gynecology: Formerly McDaniel & Durrett, P.C, Lenz had a blast rebranding the practice as Avant Gynecology, Atlanta’s GYN and Surgical Specialists.
    5. Upson Regional Medical Center: In 2018, Lenz was brought on by Upson Regional for a consultation project. Our team studied the effectiveness of the group’s existing marketing communications, held interviews in the field, and helped strengthen the brand and reach new patient groups after assessing the results.

Georgia Urology’s WSB-TV campaign

In 2018, Lenz developed and managed a robust TV ad campaign for Georgia Urology on WSB-TV. Three spots were created that focused on two of the practice’s important service lines—kidney stones and prostate cancer—and one spot was devoted to awareness building for the practice’s brand. The spots aired throughout the summer and fall of 2018 to great reception!

Tall Timbers environmental project

The Economic Impact of the Red Hills Region’s Quail Hunting Lands of North Florida and Southwest Georgia is a publication put out by the Tall Timbers organization that is based on research they do to track the conservation efforts they support. It is used to show the community and other interested parties how important the region’s environmental conservation efforts are to the local economy in very real terms. Lenz’s Creative Director Ben Barnes loves producing incredible design work for this project every three years because it’s an opportunity to be creative and support a good cause.

2018 Atlanta Science Festival

During the 2018 Atlanta Science Festival, Lenz had the pleasure of tackling exciting new projects in addition to improving the same initiatives from years prior. One of the top moments from 2018 was bringing ALEX (Atlanta’s Lead Explorer) to life. Not only did we create a physical costume that ASF could use during events of the conference, we also designed a mini version for some incredible social engagement. ALEX had much time in the spotlight, but here are some of our favorite photos:

Lenz also built a beautiful new website to help promote this incredible festival and its efforts to connect Atlanta’s science community. Check out this before and after:

BEFORE

AFTER

Our 2018 efforts really made a difference in the overall attendance, enjoyment, and quality of the festival. For example, last year 53,000 people attended, there were 120 events over 70 venues, and the festival gathered over 122 media hits that reached more than 37 million views.

Finally, our team managed to secure many exciting PR hits for this client. Just a few examples are coverage of the festival through Atlanta’s major network affiliates such as WSB-TV, 11 Alive, CBS 46, and Fox 5; a feature story from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution; radio highlights on channels such as WABE’s “City Lights”, Kiss 104.1 FM’s “Business in the Black”, 92.9 the Game, and more; digital hits on several websites such as Atlanta Business Chronicle, Patch, AccessAtlanta, GPB, and more.

Rebranding Avant Gynecology, FKA McDaniel & Durrett, P.C.

Avant Gynecology, formerly known as McDaniel & Durrett, P.C, is a long-established practice that has been serving generations of women for more than 40 years. From creating the name to establishing the new brand’s aesthetic and identity, Lenz provided its services to ensure the practice’s rebranding captured its top-notch quality and professional reputation.

Emory Law’s JM Campaign

2018 saw the continuation of a successful integrated marketing campaign for Emory Law’s Juris Master degree. The campaign (now beginning its third year) leverages traditional media (radio, print, PR), targeted digital messaging, creative, and strategies across more than ten cities in the southeast including Charlotte, Nashville, Jacksonville, and Atlanta using tools such as geo-fencing, Google Ads, pre-roll, and remarketing. During the fall of 2018, we captured new video featuring student testimonials and created a suite of accompanying digital assets to harmonize with the new videos.

Here’s one example:

Lenz Helps Amplify Decatur Raise $40,000 to Fight Poverty

Lenz presented the 2018 Amplify Decatur Concert Series, helping raise $40,000 for its beneficiary Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM), a Decatur-based, nonprofit organization that works to prevent and alleviate poverty and homelessness in Decatur and DeKalb County. This $40,000 gift equals the most an Amplify Concert Series has generated to date; Amplify Decatur has raised and donated more than $190,000 to DCM since 2011.

On April 14, thousands gathered on the Downtown Decatur Square for the Amplify Decatur Music Festival, the centerpiece of the concert series. The festival featured performances by an all-star Americana line-up, including The Lone Bellow, The Jayhawks, Amanda Shires, and Parker Millsap. Atlanta-based folk duo Dwayne Shivers also performed.

Lenz’s own Accounts and Operations Director, Christine Mahin, served as festival director for the second consecutive year. Lenz is extremely proud to have worked alongside the Amplify My Community team to make this event as successful as it was.

SouthCoast Health’s Urgent Care

With more than 120 healthcare professionals encompassing more than 20 specialties and services, we were excited to help SouthCoast Health promote its latest addition to its extensive line of services: Urgent Care. Lenz branded the service and crafted several social media assets, such as Facebook campaigns, boosted ads, and weekly social posts, to promote the line.

We were particularly proud of a gif that both the social media department and the creative team crafted together:

Collaboration between local bloggers and Marietta Plastic Surgery

In today’s age of online “influencers” and brands, plastic surgery groups have seen great success in collaborating with micro-influencers. Micro-influencers are local social media accounts with large followings and audiences that trust their opinion.

That’s why Lenz was proud to connect Marietta Plastic Surgery with Peaches in a Pod, a best-friend micro-influencers duo based in Marietta, Georgia. See some of the social posts and blogs we helped Peaches in a Pod create to promote the incredible services Marietta Plastic Surgery provides.

2017 was quite a busy year for the team at Lenz! As such, we would like to take a moment and look back on all we accomplished for our clients. From creating integrated marketing campaigns, to rebranding medical practices, and expanding our media properties in Atlanta and beyond, Team Lenz has covered a lot of ground. See below for some of our highlights and achievements from last year!

SouthCoast Health Breast Cancer Campaign

As SouthCoast Health’s key social media and digital content provider, the Lenz team developed custom branding, digital content, as well as social and public relations campaigns worthy of the innovative breast health services that SouthCoast Health offers.

Check out some of the pieces Lenz created for this campaign, including branded logo and website graphics, blogs, news pieces, and informative graphics.

Video series for Emory Law’s JM Program

Lenz partnered with Mixed Bag Media to produce a series of videos promoting Emory University School of  Law’s Juris Master program, designed for non-lawyers who want to advance in their career and gain an understanding of how the law relates to their field. For the project, we interviewed seven current and former students of the program and asked them about how the degree helped their careers in the fields of healthcare, human resources, and business. We also had the opportunity to interview Stephen Sencer, the Senior Vice President and General Counsel and Senior Advisor to the President of Emory University about the value of the degree to working professionals.

As a part of a multifaceted video campaign, we worked with the Mixed Bag Media team to develop two versions of each interview (a 90-second and 30-second version), as well as a montage video featuring multiple students. The videos were used in a large-scale digital marketing campaign, which included social media, web, and YouTube pre-roll. All ads clicked through to branded landing pages, which rounded out the cohesive look of the integrated campaign. The landing pages allowed us to track conversions from each individual referral source, helping us optimize and achieve the client’s goals.

PT Solutions’ Partnership with the Atlanta Braves

Lenz helped PT Solutions promote its partnership with the Atlanta Braves, by creating a sponsor shield, billboard campaign, and website features.

See below for these design pieces!

Lenz Owned Media Properties

In addition to offering our healthcare and community clients integrated services, Lenz also owns several media properties, allowing us to deliver more value to our clients and help them reach their goals. In 2017, Lenz was able to expand its “The Weekly Check-Up” show out of Atlanta (out of the state for that matter) into Tampa, Florida! “The Weekly Check-Up” now airs on WHPT 102.5 FM.

2017 also saw the debut of “Lenz on Business,” Atlanta’s preeminent business talk show that airs Saturdays at 6 p.m. on News/Talk 95.5 FM WSB. Each week, Lenz president and CEO, Richard Lenz, speaks with Atlanta’s business leaders to explore their inspiring stories, lessons learned, and tips for growth and success.

Creating A.L.E.X. for the Atlanta Science Festival

With its growing popularity, the Atlanta Science Festival needed a playful, memorable brand to help solidify its place among Atlanta’s busy calendar of events and reach even more curious people across the region. ASF came to Lenz for help with this task, and thus ALEX was born into the universe.

ALEX (Atlanta’s Lead EXplorer) is ASF’s mascot: a spunky astronaut sporting the branded ASF pink and ready to take ATLiens on a two-week science-filled adventure. The goal with this mascot’s development was to instill a sense of exploration and wonder in the 2017 festival while also solidifying ASF’s brand within the Atlanta market. Knowing that consumers show affinity towards brands that extend their essence beyond a logo, and into a carefully crafted persona, ALEX became an integral part of  the festival’s marketing initiatives.

Georgia Urology’s 2017 Marketing Campaign

How do you take often uncomfortable topics and develop messages that connect with potential patients looking for first-rate care? What do patients really want from their healthcare experience? These are just a couple of the questions the Lenz team asked when developing Georgia Urology’s 2017 “Confidence” campaign.

The “Confidence” campaign is designed to articulate the wide array of benefits that patients receive by partnering with Georgia Urology for their healthcare, and it recognizes that urology comes with particular sensitivities and considerations.

Check out some of the pieces Lenz created for this campaign, including print ads, billboard ads, and an updated website.

Lenz Helps Amplify Decatur Raise $40,000 to Fight Poverty

Lenz presented the 2017 Amplify Decatur Concert Series, helping raise $40,000 for its beneficiary Decatur Cooperative Ministry (DCM), a Decatur-based, nonprofit organization that works to prevent and alleviate poverty and homelessness in Decatur and DeKalb County.

On April 22, thousands gathered on the Downtown Decatur Square for the Amplify Decatur Musical Festival, the centerpiece of the concert series. Americana legend and three-time Grammy winner Lucinda Williams headlined the outdoor festival, which drew more than 2,000 guests. Also performing were Noah Gundersen, John Moreland, Harold Holloway & Company, Packway Handle Band, and Kristen Englenz & The Committed.

Lenz is extremely proud to have worked alongside the Amplify My Community team to make this event a reality.

Rebranding Avail Dermatology, FKA Newnan Dermatology

Avail Dermatology was formerly Newnan Dermatology, a respected provider of dermatological services since 1990. From creating the name to choosing the color scheme and design of the new logo, Lenz provided its services to ensure the practice’s rebranding captured its high quality and professional reputation.

Branded Infographics for ACMR

In an effort to raise awareness of the importance of medical research and related topics, such as vaccinations and the role caregivers play, Lenz has created several branded infographics for the Atlanta Center for Medical Research.

Atlanta Interfaith Manifesto

An especially unique project the Lenz team had the privilege to work on this year was promoting the Atlanta Interfaith Manifesto – a statement and digital movement working to promote interfaith cooperation in the Atlanta community.

The Lenz creative, interactive, and media departments all pulled together to shape the marketing around The Manifesto and help make its auspicious goal a reality. Starting off with just 15 “endorsers” and the development of two full page ads, the initiative soon took root and bloomed into a fully integrated digital movement (website, Facebook, Twitter, and e-newsletter), media coverage on WSB-TV and The Atlanta Business Chronicle, a full-house event at The Center for Civil and Human Rights, a custom blog series, and (to-date) over 800 endorsers of The Atlanta Interfaith Manifesto.

The custom blog series is a point of particular pride among the many exciting efforts developed for this client. Think-pieces from Atlanta leaders like Doug Shipman (CEO of The Woodruff Arts Center), Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley (veteran of the Civil Rights Movement), Dr. Derreck Kayongo (CEO of The National Center for Civil and Human Rights), and Jan Love (Dean of Candler School of Theology at Emory University) were collected and featuring on the Manifesto website and social media properties.

Lenz will continue to manage the digital marketing for the Atlanta Interfaith Manifesto in 2018.

Thank you for reading! Believe it or not, these projects are just a small sampling of our work from 2017. Thank you to our clients who trust us with their business every year. We’re excited to do even more in 2018!

Lenz is proud to host many interns that leave behind legacies of hard work, creative ideas, and lasting relationships. It should come as no surprise that our 2017 summer intern Allison Miller would combine her social media savvy and natural design talent to leave us with an especially unique legacy: a Snapchat geofilter.

For the 158 million people who use Snapchat every day, one of the most popular features are the geofilters—creative overlays based on location and time that appear around the user’s picture or video. During Allison’s summer internship with Lenz, she noticed the area around the Lenz office in downtown Decatur was lacking a geofilter option that truly expressed the colorful and creative atmosphere of the community. So, she decided to do something about it by designing and submitting her own geofilter for the downtown Decatur Square. As a part of the application process, Allison detailed the rich, cultural history of the Decatur area as her creative inspiration.

Read what she had to say:

“This summer I’ve been spending a lot of time in Decatur interning at a marketing agency. I’ve learned that the agency Lenz has had quite a positive impact on the area.”

“As an avid Snapchat user, I noticed that Decatur had several community geofilters, but none of them really represented the rich culture contained here. Therefore, I decided to use my graphic design skills to create my own. I chose the guitar because Decatur is rich with music history, having been the place where Indigo Girls, John Mayer, Shawn Mullins, and Sugarland got their starts. I just hope that I can continue my boss’ dream of making Decatur the best it can be, and I feel that Snapchat can help.”

Be on the lookout for this Allison’s Snapchat geofilter next time you’re taking a selfie on the Decatur Square!

Founded in 2014, the Atlanta Science Festival (ASF) is an annual two-week celebration of the Atlanta science community consisting of more than 100 events and a grand finale: The Exploration Expo. With experiences such as cooking and eating bugs, discovering the science behind beer brewing, witnessing wildlife through Atlanta’s forests, and stopping a zombie outbreak, it’s no wonder the festival has seen remarkable success in a few short years. There is something for everyone, and no one walks away from the festival disappointed at its offerings.

With its  growing popularity, the Atlanta Science Festival needed a playful, memorable brand to help solidify its place among Atlanta’s busy calendar of events and reach even more curious people across the region. ASF came to Lenz for help with this task, and thus ALEX was born into the universe.

ALEX (Atlanta’s Lead EXplorer) is ASF’s mascot: a spunky astronaut sporting the branded ASF pink and ready to take ATLiens on a two-week science-filled adventure. The goal with this mascot’s development was to instill a sense of exploration and wonder in the 2017 festival while also solidifying ASF’s brand within the Atlanta market. Knowing that consumers show affinity towards brands that extend their essence beyond a logo, and into a carefully crafted persona, ALEX became an integral part of  the festival’s marketing initiatives.

ALEX appeared on MARTA buses, billboards, magazines, social channels, promotional videos, and festival literature, bringing the festival under one unified personification. Festival-goers even took ownership of ALEX through a mascot naming contest on social media. Hundreds of entries were cast, and a panel was formed to chose the winning submission. After careful consideration, ALEX was selected as the mascot’s name.

The 2017 festival was a hit, reaching over 41,000 people of all ages. At the Exploration Expo alone, 19,000 people came into contact with ALEX through festival signage, programs, and exhibits at Centennial Olympic Park. With over 100 events, 70 venues, 14,500 followers on social media channels, and 200 million media impressions, it is safe to say that ALEX made a grand debut.
