portfolio Governor Sonny Perdue wanted to address Georgia’s litter problem, so he put together a taskforce comprised of The Department of Natural Resources, Georgia’s Department of Transportation, The Department of Community Affairs, and other interested Georgia Stakeholders. We partnered with Cookerly Public Relations and Planet Studio to create a two-prong Television and Radio advertising campaign. The television campaign was designed to target the general population in Georgia, where as the radio campaign was developed to reach the primary target of litters, young men ages 18-25 years. The result was a television commercial that pulled at the heartstrings of Georgians, compelling them to preserve the beauty of the state, and a funny radio campaign that likened litters to nerds or uncool dudes.
