    in 2013, the City of Miami Beach was interested in shifting local perception of the city as an EDM/DJ haven and instead promote its full gamut of cultural offerings. These included museums, art galleries, theater, live music, five-star hotels, fine dining, and other activities often deafened by the pulsing post-midnight ”beat”. A giveaway would serve as an educational campaign with the grand prize consisting of a sampler of the city’s culture-couture. Leftfield was tapped to develop the campaign that would effectively convey this message of Miami Beach as a cultural mecca disguised as a contest. Leftfield was also asked to consult in the city’s development of a vast media plan that would reach both Dade and Broward counties. After some preliminary ideas, the city bought into our concept showcasing a silhouetted montage of the area’s activities in an effort to communicate a wealth of information in a single glance. The decision to keep the layout clean was an imperative in order for the reader to digest as much of the illustration as possible. Print, digital, outdoor and broadcast all made it into the final media plan. In an effort to more directly target this culturally-enlightened demographic, Leftfield proposed capitalizing from event-goers who normally print tickets at home. A Miami Beach promo on their ink-jetted ticket sheet would expose our target market to messaging they were already receptive to at the very moment they first saw their tickets. Another winning strategy came in the form of leveraging Leftfield’s relationship with local music artists. For the radio portion of our broadcast campaign, Leftfield enlisted the help of four local musical artists who frequently performed in Miami Beach to lend their voice and music to our cause. This tactic turned out to be a win/win: The city recruited beneficiaries of their campaign to help create its marketing message, they saved on talent and music fees, and the artists gained free self-promotion on broadcast radio. The resulting campaign delivered the message to South Florida residents with an approximate +58 million impressions - an average of over 13 impressions per capita. Read Less

In 2013, the City of Miami Beach was interested in shifting local perception of the city as an EDM/DJ haven and instead promote its full gamut of cultural offerings.
