This fall, Opera Memphis is launching a re-branding campaign with the help of doug carpenter & associates. In addition to publicizing the company's new director, Ned Canty, and promoting the 2011-2012 season, the branding campaign aims to appeal to both seasoned opera-goers and those that might be intimidated by the art form. Glamour, class, AND accessibility? Not too shabby.
The campaign includes outdoor, online, direct mail, radio, and print advertising.
