THE SOLUTION

We took a holistic approach by combining brand strategy, customer experience, and digital strategy to create a strategic integrated marketing platform that repositioned the brand. We helped elevate the Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District (BID) from a 16-block collection of shops and restaurants to Denver's most walkable mixed-use lifestyle destination.

The Uniquely North campaign captures the unique essence of the District, inviting visitors to expect the unexpected and enjoy the good life shared in Cherry Creek North. Featuring a bright, cheery color palette and fresh photography - each with a unique twist - the campaign highlights the wonderfully walkable, exceptionally unexpected, artfully approachable and fashionably fun features of the district. 

A holiday video spot served as a key feature for the campaign. This piece showcased how the Cherry Creek North community came together to tell a newly refreshed and authentic brand story and brought the district to life. Karsh Hagan and the BID worked directly with local businesses to highlight Cherry Creek North restaurants, hotel rooms, storefronts, clothing, accessories and other merchandise. Even the actors were sourced directly from local businesses in the district.

In addition to paid advertising, Karsh Hagan evaluated Cherry Creek North's digital and overall content approach, put testing in place, and developed a strategy for phased updates and implementation. Updates to the Cherry Creek North website and the development of brand content and social strategies helped to establish a cohesive and better customer experience for visitors.
