  1. 1. Anheuser-Busch True Music Roadhouse The True Music Roadhouse was making the rounds. Wholesalers were expecting the masses. AB wanted to be sure the masses turned out – so they called us. We developed pre-promotional materials including customizable newspaper ads, posters, banners, flyers, sell sheets and table tents available on CD. Then worked the radio waves providing True Music prize packages and gave the market folks what they needed to cover the hot spots before the event got to town and made sure people were lined up when the doors opened.Anheuser-Busch Consumer Connection KitThe headache is in the details. We pulled them all together and made sureeverything you could possibly want to know about field marketing wasaddressed and did it all in a kick-ass package by creating a completeConsumer Connection Guide. Updating existing photographs to incorporate thelatest in Anheuser-Busch products and packaging. This isn’t your father’scorporate manual. Anheuser-Busch B Lounge A luxury coach requires imprinted hand towels, custom coasters and glassware and a befitting name. Not to mention a newspaper ad, fact sheet and a brochure merchandising the fabulousness that surrounds visitors. AB turned to us again to instinctively know just what was needed to class up the joint and be sure wholesale visitors and corporate guests alike saw (or didn’t see) seamless integration of everyday items.
