RTO+P Crafts New Hire Totem Pole

In October, Philly-based Red Tettemer O’Connell + Partners welcomed eight new hires with paper doll likenesses of themselves.

Now, in an attempt to up the ante in the creative welcoming of new employees department, the agency has crafted a totem pole featuring eleven new hires that were just announced today. The totem pole was sculpted by Steve Thompson, RTO+P’s “Maker,” out of basswood and stands proud at 26 inches tall.

“We’re stoked to have all this new talent aboard and we’ve heard the totem of their likenesses can actually produce rain when held at a specific angle,” says Steve Red, president/CCO of RTO+P. You can view a short documentary on the sculpting process above. New hires include (from top to bottom of the totem pole): Jacqui Abel, Senior Account Manager; Jonathan Bayless, Social Driver; Megan Auld-Wright, Copywriter; Travis Hyatt, Developer; Gillian Darr, Account Coordinator; Chris Arasin, Interactive Designer; Allison Berger, Community Manager; Will Nathanson, Account Director; Alex Moreno, Junior Social Creative; Joe Schoppy, Junior Social Creative; and Meg Dibley, Junior Content Producer.

RTO+P, Sprout Create Honest ‘Holiday MOMents’ for Stressed Moms

MOMents_HolidayJoy_2

The winter holidays are usually presented as a series of idyllic, perfect family moments. But most of us know better.

Red Tettemer O’Connell + Partners teamed up with Sprout, the 24 hour preschool channel for parents and kids, to create “Holiday MOMents,” which they describe as “a site for moms to customize and share their very own moments with kids and their moms.” Read: awkward moments. The campaign was built around “consumer insight” (brought to you by Captain Obvious) showing how stressful and overwhelming the holiday season can be for moms with young children.

The site allows users to choose from a list of templates, including “Holiday Cheers and Tears,” ““’Tis the season to be messy,” “The Hostess with the MostStress,” and “Post Dinner Nap Time the New Family Tradition.” Visitors to the site then upload their imperfect holiday moment, and instantly have an honest holiday e-card on their hands. It’s a simple, fun idea tailored perfectly to Sprout’s audience. (Although I can’t help thinking fathers might feel a bit left out.)

RTO+P have also created a holiday giveaway campaign called MerryThon, which you can find on Sprout’s Facebook and Pinterest pages. The campaign, which started Wednesday and will run until December 24th, features a different prize given away every day. Also part of MerryThon is a daily craft or activity featuring one of Sprout’s popular characters. Sprout’s holiday campaign will also feature mobile and display ads.
