City Nation Place is pleased to showcase a stunning tourism promotion campaign.  For their first foray in to promotion through storytelling and native content, Florida Keys and Key West worked with The New York Times T Brand Studio to provide information on some of the most popular leisure activities and natural attractions in this unique American destination.  

The beautiful visuals and bright colours take the audience on a ride through the Keys, with stunning video and an itinerary full of adventure.   The digital campaign ran for three months – weighted to meet peak seasonal targets.

Take a look, here.

As you’ll know if you’ve had any experience with place branding, it’s such a strange beast of a discipline that it’s rare to have an unqualified victory. Speaking for myself, I’ve been in the game for 13 years – which might even qualify me as a pioneer in the field –and I often wish I could go back and give my past clients the benefit of my hindsight.
