challenges: our firm was approached one early november to publicize and spark holiday sales of the first book published by design within reach, the mid-century modern furniture retailer with 16 stores. the book, entitled how to see, by george nelson the famous designer, was wonderful, but there were challenges. nearly every editor mentioned that the book being a re-issue and selfpublished by a private company as a deterrent to coverage. coupled with the fact that we had only a few weeks to get placements - it seemed impossible to obtain media coverage which would impact the sale of the book for the holiday season. solutions: we positioned the book as a new classic and a collector’s item. we hit strong right from the start with our design, media and lifestyle contacts. hits included a new york times style section write up in books of style, followed by placements in la times, the magazines-in step design, metropolis, id and npr radio segments with george nelson’s sidekick and the book’s graphic designer. results: sales of the book were positively impacted in time for the holidays and the buzz was great!
