From Wichita With Love
is an ongoing collaborative project, described on the website as follows:
"From Wichita With Love is the brainchild of a group of friends who happily call the Air Capital home. With graphic design, architecture, creative writing, IT, PR and venue management professionals among us, we’ve pooled our time and skills to share our city with the world, one bit of postcard love at a time. The message is simple, “We wish you were here!” and we’re using it to create interest in Wichita as a cultural and commercial destination.We’re partnering with businesses around town to distribute our first postcard design, driving traffic to those merchants as we invite Wichitans to join in the project. Whether it’s to say hello to an out-of-state friend or a soldier overseas, to invite a band to play at a local venue or to persuade a corporation that their business would find a good fit here, we want to hear what people are saying with their postcards and see where they’re ending up."
Distribution of the postcards was announced in a concerted social media campaign that coincided with the launch of the website. The project has since garnered a strong local following, and has even elicited the production of t-shirts bearing a customized version of the card's illustration.
