The Blind Children’s Learning Center held its 2014 Fall Golf Classic on November 3rd, 2014 at the El Niguel Country Club in Laguna Niguel, CA. Proceeds from the day – amounting to $90,000 – will help to provide a “Total Communications Plan” for every child the organization serves that is blind, deaf-blind, or multi-disabled. The event consisted of 18 holes of scramble golf on the private, member-owned country club, as well as a blindfold putting contest, a post-tournament cocktail reception and silent auction, and capped off with an awards dinner and live auction.

Johnson Gray has proudly been teaming up with the Blind Children’s Learning Center since 2010, assisting them with charitable events as well as their advertising needs. It is common for a child with visual impairments to have expressive and receptive developmental delays. With the “Total Communication Plan” provided by the Blind Children’s Learning Center, a certified deaf-blind intervener studies each child’s mode of communication and behaviors to develop and implement a communication system created specifically for each child, helping them to reach their full potential.

With Pinnacle Capital Mortgage being our third rebrand this year, we decided to go with…get ready for it (drum roll on whichever office appliance is in closest proximity)…a simple, clean, and all around better look and feel.

Pinnacle Capital Mortgage is structured as a parent company to Peak Mortgage and Alpine Mortgage Planning. The JGA team saw an importance in creating brand consistency between all three conglomerates yet give each branch the opportunity to customize their individual sites separately. Each site went under some much needed spring cleaning, along with logo enhancements, testimonials, and a nifty mortgage calculator. Usability is another noteworthy improvement with the addition of mobile friendly sites and an advanced mapping system to easily locate offices and affiliated brokers across the country, we want our clients to be able to find the best refinance mortgage options online by using our website!

Cross-Cultural Medicare Campaign

January, 21, 2014 / 0 comments

PIH Health recently engaged their diverse community with an extension of their cross-cultural Medicare campaign. Serving the Los Angeles County with their network of hospitals, urgent care centers and physician groups; the seasonal arrival of Medicare Open Enrollment meant the timing was right for an informative campaign. Their goal being to engage their senior community by offering informational seminars on various health and wellness topics, educate their community on the benefits of staying active and healthy, and assist in simplifying the at times complicated Open Enrollment process.

The Johnson Gray team met this complex situation head on by starting with both qualitative and quantitative research. With expertise in pinpointing and implementing multicultural media options, we achieved high efficiency and reach for PIH Health’s ethnically diverse target audiences. Our strategy helped catapult this noteworthy campaign with print, online, outdoor, TV, digital, and direct mail pieces in English, Spanish, and Chinese.

KringleCare.gov Launches

December, 21, 2013 / 0 comments

With the most festive of spirits, Johnson Gray Advertising celebrates this season with some giggles. Frequenting matters that are current and influential to this passing year, the agency sent out holiday wishes in the form of a government health care website parody, dubbed KringleCare.gov. This lampooning site directly mimics healthcare.gov in layout, style, and usability—even functionality (naturally, it doesn’t work at all)! The best part being error pop-ups, and quite funny ones at that.

With this satirical creation, we wish all our friends-democrats, republicans, and independents alike, a good laugh and a happy Holiday!

Check Santa’s Naughty/Nice List, submit your Christmas wish list, and for all the bad boys out there, trade in your coal at: KringleCare.gov

Something to Make a Splash About

Oh, crikey! The Johnson Gray team is at it again with a spiffy rebrand for client, Australian Swim School. For over 35 years the Australian Swim School has been bringing advanced swim training techniques with a fun Aussie twist to families in Southern California. Having four separate locations, their philosophy remains unchanged: To offer developmentally appropriate teaching techniques with an excellent customer experience.

The client turned to Johnson Gray for assistance in coordinating their marketing efforts to re-create their brand, renovate their website, and generate awareness for the opening of an additional swim school. A rebrand was achieved by freshening up all brand components—a renewed and modernized logo, fun and lively imaging, and a visually appealing yet highly functional website. Exposure for Australian Swim School’s new Santa Ana location was acquired through print ads, outdoor vinyls and additional promotional signage, and social media marketing.

The Alter-G Rebrand

October, 29, 2013 / 0 comments

AlterG Blog copy

Alter-G has brought moon-walking back in style with their seemingly futuristic innovation of the NASA inspired Anti-Gravity Treadmill. This nearly unfathomable device uses air pressure to offset 80% of the user’s body weight in lower extremity therapy and training. Alter-G’s Anti-Gravity Treadmill offers benefits to several different markets; having specifically targeted advanced and professional athletes, they have secured allegiance from Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Manchester United and numerous other talent.

In addition, the company recently acquired their newest product, a Bionic Leg robotic assistance device for neurorehabilitation and physical therapy. With the acquisition of the Bionic Leg to the Anti-Gravity Treadmill, Alter-G’s innovative product portfolio has yet to meet a direct competitor. They recognized an urgency and relevance in defining their brand and paralleling its message with their company culture. Alter-G’s concern was that the look and feel of their brand was cold, dark, and disconnected; having no clear message. Their website was difficult to navigate, lacking consumer appeal and engagement. Alter-G’s brand was in need of a facelift.

A total rebrand is a hard task to take on, but not one too hard for a Viking. Always remember that Vikings are superior to pirates but equal to ninjas. Putting our helmets down and our thinking caps on, the Johnson Gray Team positioned Alter-G as a game-changer. We viewed the absence of light in the company’s branding to be the opposite of what Alter-G stands for. We wanted to highlight the inspirational and touching testimonials while offering an encouraging atmosphere to prospective users. By lightening up collateral, we captured the weightlessness component of the product into Alter-G’s brand messaging. With a complete web revamp we created a modern allure while increasing usability and translated all “medical speak” into more relatable language. Our specific strategy evoked messaging to reveal that ordinary people are surely capable of making astonishing accomplishments. Alter-G truly is “changing the way the world rehabs”.

All of which highlight the “Huntington Difference”: innovative solutions that center on every individual need of each unique patient, from cutting-edge treatment to holistic healing approaches to secure exceptional clinical outcomes.
