    The Colonie Wins Two Tellys for PorscheVertical Ad

    August 7, 2019, 12:53 pm
    The Forward-Thinking Approach and Full-Service Capabilities of The Chicago-Based Company’s Pioneering Social Media Division Earns Its Team Silver Wins for its ‘Use of the Vertical Format’ & ‘Creative Editing’ at 40th Annual Telly Awards

    The Colonie’s work on Porsche’s vertical advertising campaign, ‘Curves,' was recognized by this year’s Telly Awards with silver wins in the Social Media category for ‘Use of the Vertical Format’ as well as ‘Creative Editing.’  The Chicago-based editorial and postproduction company’s Social Media Director, Jimmy Helm and Creative Director Jennifer Moody, collaborated with Cramer-Krasselt on the project. 

    Helm and Moody were provided with a script and a pool of 16x9 footage and ran with it. They came up with a series of short videos that pushed the boundaries beyond the graphics approach that Porsche had previously taken in the social media space. The design team created a compelling visual story that maintains the high-end brand’s aesthetic.

    “It was great partnering with the agency’s creatives,” says Helm. “John Doessel and John McKenzie really embraced the idea of reimagining what content could look like in the vertical space and put their trust in our understanding and ability to design unique and stimulating social media content. They gave Jennifer and I the opportunity to do what we do best, which is creating eye-catching, memorable content on all platforms, and deliver a successful and award-winning social media campaign for Porsche.”

    “Building design-driven content that tells an engaging visual story on short-form social media requires an approach and way of thinking that is very different from creating design elements for a commercial,” says Mary Caddy.  “It takes throwing everything you know about broadcast storytelling out the window and thinking outside the box to design the most impactful content for each platform.”

    “We look at each client’s message from a fresh perspective and focus on creating a concept that takes maximum advantage of the opportunities that social media presents,” says Helm. “Our team’s expertise working in this genre enables us to consistently deliver innovative content that connects with our clients’ target markets. Providing this level of service has established The Colonie as the go-to resource for a growing roster of social media work.”
