    • 8. The 2009 Brand
      Your client, Broccoli City, an organic lifestyle brand is interested in
      expanding to new markets, starting with Dallas, TX. The client would like for you
      to develop a concept for an campaign introducing their brand into the market.
      The client is interested in developing a brand campaign inclusive of
      the following:
      pop up retail promotion
      mini-magazine prototype
      “green living” viral video campaign
      pilot for a radio show
      :30 PSA for the movement including production of original music and “celebrity appearances.”
      Mobile Application
      Web Campaign for Global Community Service Travel Partnership (Globe Aware)
      The mission of BROCCOLI CITY is to promote
      good positive thinking and living.
      There is a critical lack of education in
      the urban and Hip-Hop community about
      the Green Movement. BROCCOLI CITY
      breaks all barriers and is the educating
      factor. We educate through blogging
      and hosting “green events” to generations
      that are eager to learn new trends,
      new things to help the environment and
      staying above that curve.
      Broccoli City is not just another company,
      “gone green”. We are trendsetters
      that help the earth, on action, one
      t-shirt at a time. We are by no means
      ‘tree huggers’ or radically preaching
      about the environment but we are leading
      by example. BBROCCOLI CITY is a
      way of life…emphasizing staying fly everyday
      but also being conscientious of
      our earth.
    • 10. BROCCOLI CITY represents a diverse
      group of young urbanites who are practitioners of innovative sustainable development.
      BROCCOLI CITY celebrates
      the lifestyle of creative and stylish urban
      consumers across the world through initiatives in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Washington DC, New York and the World Wide Web. Our online & video content, organic street wear, and events promote a fresh perspective on the Green Movement.
      BROCCOLI CITY is not a fashion statement;
      it is a way of life.
