I judged an award show today and saw a campaign that I loved. In fact, I gave it a perfect score. And I don’t give anything a perfect score. You should check out the link, because once you see it, I think you’ll agree it’s an amazing campaign. It’s for the Troy public library. It’s great.
And here’s the kicker. The budget for the campaign was $3,500.
Now I didn’t forget any numbers here. That’s right three thousand five hundred dollars. Many campaigns have bigger budgets for client entertainment.
It just goes to show that a great idea done brilliantly is better than an OK idea with a ton of money behind it.
I also judged entries that have $100 million dollar ad budgets – Troy library was better. I saw amazing special effects TV spots – Troy library was better. I saw emotional tug-at-your-heart campaigns – and Troy library was better.
Please take a look and let me know what you think.
That’s it for today. A simple brilliant campaign. I wish I created it. Kudos to the team who did.

This is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
Absolutely brilliant! Their marketing tactics were astonishing and the motion graphics were very clean, simple, and modern.
I’ve got to admit when I first saw the still photo, I was skeptical. But the video rocked.
I didn’t know a library could evoke such strong emotions in the 21st century 🙂
Perfectly genius! I would have to admit I would have fallen into the “trap” too. I’m so glad the library was kept open!
