Advertising 208 Final Project 2011


The Client:

DOWNTOWN•Syracuse

The Objective:

“To create awareness and convenience for Syracuse University Students.”


The Competition... Marshall Street: Located conveniently, directly outside of the Syracuse University campus is a hub for student shopping. It offers a selection of food and fun for every taste and interest. The downside is the inflated prices and overcrowding because so many students frequent there.

Carousel Center: Located about 10 minutes away from Syracuse’s Campus, the mall is home to a number of Stores, Restaurants, and Entertainment options. The largest of which is the cinema complex located on the top floor of the mall. Buses from the universities run directly to the mall allowing first year students easy access.

Fayetteville Towne Center: Located off campus, this is a highly frequented area due to the value it offers. Included in the plaza is a Target which allows shoppers to fulfill a number of needs in one building.


DOWNTOWN•Syracuse

So far...

The average Syracuse Student Thinks: Downtown•Syracuse = Ghetto

These are the current logos that represent the downtown area.

This is the new logo we have designed which incorporates the iconic orange that is often associated with Syracuse. It Umbrellas downtown as a whole area and gives it a modern look while still representing the community that has existed there for ages. The circular shape reminds us of all that can be found in just one place.

The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness to possible new businesses to come rent space downtown. It is also suppose to attract people to explore the area that is constantly growing.


Target Markets Simmons Data Primary

18-24 yrs. Old, Male and Female, New York Area Secondary/Multicultural

18-24 yrs. Old, Male and Female, African American

Persona 1. Racheal 2. Michael • 21 yrs. old. • She is a Senior who is sick of the overcrowded Bars on Marshall Street. • Hard worker BUT enjoys shopping and going out (Nightlife). • She is a Public Relations Major at Syracuse University.

• 18 yrs. old. • He is a freshman at Syracuse University and undecided in his major. • He is very trendy and into his style but loves a good deal. • He has visited the Carousel Mall but can’t get the gist of the bus schedule and is sick of the limited options on Marshall Street.


Creative BIG IDEA

When you are annoyed by whats convenient around you, Go DOWNTOWN. We believe that when the student consumers become tired of the ‘same old’ routine because it’s convenient, Downtown Syracuse can offer them a new unique experience.


Strategy Measurement We want the number of Syracuse students to increase by 50% in Downtown Syracuse. We will measure this by the number of Facebook ‘likes’ we get as well as the number of Twitter follows we have. We will also look at the number of people who have downloaded our app. After 1 year of implementing this plan we will give another survey exactly the same as our last one given to gather our current data. This should give us a good measurement of how students opinions and usage of the area have changed.

The Festival will be held twice a year, once in August and then again in May. The idea will be to attract freshmen with the August Festival by featuring shops and restaurants located downtown. In the Spring we will utilize ‘May Fest’ which is a annual drinking event for students of age Attending Syracuse University. The Festival will include the 18 featured bars that are visited during the CUSE Crawl in the fall. The entry fee will be $5.00 per person and include tasting’s of specialty drinks made by each bar. Upon leaving the enclosed festival area students will vote for their favorite featured drink and the bar that wins gets the $5.00 cover charges that were collected upon entry. Tabling at the festival will cost $100,00 per bar to cover venue costs.

May • Upper Class men Targeted. • Feature 18 Bars. • Specialty Drink Contest. • $5.00 cover fee, $100.00 Tabling fee.
