Romanian PR agency The Public Advisors and strategy and multidisciplinary studio Hello Menthol signed the communication strategy and visual identity for TEDxBucharest 2013.
I want to thank The Public Advisors and Hello Menthol for offering their expertise and experience to TEDxBucharest and for building up on the concept we chose for this edition: “Make it Happen”, PR strategies and graphical identity concepts that helped us to present to the public ideas that worth to be shared. Moreover, both teams are the result of an entrepreneurial exercise made both by Raluca and by Alexu, which suits very well with our concept this year
The Public Advisors handled the communication strategy and made a campaign that mixed digital communication, blog relations, event management and classical media relations. Moreover, for the 1st time in the 5 years of existence of the conference in Romania, a new concept – TedxBucharest ambassador – was introduced.
We wished very much for us to be the ones that make it happen when it comes of the Romanian version of one of the most known events on the planet. The Public Advisors team serviced the ideas that worth sharing with mix of innovative communication tactics, creating around TEDxBucharest a real community of supporters that included ambassadors, journalists, members of civil society and young people
General Manager – The Public Advisors.
Hello Menthol team was the one that built the entire visual strategy for TEDxBucharest. The proposed solution went to the core of “Make it Happen” and had as key graphical elements normal tools that people on the stage used in real life to build their stories, tools that wouldn’t have mean anything without determination, passion and a huge load of work.
TEDxBucharest 2013 identity is, practically, a visual confirmation of the statement “Make it Happen” and, simultaneously, a flexible composition of illustrations easy to decline on any online and offline support, on animations, environmental branding and so on
Managing Partner – Hello Menthol.
This year’s logo integrated the tagline, drawn in line with illustrations and generic logo for TEDxBucharest.
