We’re made up of two divisions: COLOSSAL MEDIA has permanent inventory in major markets throughout the US. In addition to our existing inventory Colossal also has the ability to custom scout and permit untapped locations for clients at a moment’s notice. Because the hand paint medium is locally respected for its artistic and organic approach, we have unique access to iconic and otherwise unattainable wall space in cities where traditional advertising is not permitted. SKY HIGH MURALS is our team of highly-skilled painters who travel the country dedicated to the hand-paint craft. Our painters are able to replicate any piece of imagery, any detail, any abstraction, in any size. We’re licensed rigging installers and can complete any size job in house and on time.

  5. 5. SCENARIO : Stella Artois wanted to bring to life the ritual of pouring the perfect Stella. STELLA SOLUTION : Colossal painted 19 creative frames in 21 consecutive days to capture the 9 steps of the “perfect pour.” Colossal also filmed a time-lapse of the production process, showing how the story was articulated, frame by frame, to create a stop motion journey of the whole project. RESULT: With Colossal’s hand painted wall at the forefront, the campaign grew into a multi-platform initiative, well beyond the Outdoor medium. In conjunction with Mother New York, Stella Artois commissioned a behind-the-scenes documentary and online journal of the campaign featuring the history and art of hand painted wallscapes. Promotional activity surrounded the wall on Broome Street with temporary old-fashioned viewfinders, street teams armed with collateral. Events were held at the bar across the street, all strategically in place to engage passersby in The Ritual and drive traffic to the campaign site: www.theritualproject.com and documentary site: www.uptherefilm.com And it worked. The response was immense. In addition to the crowds that gathered at the site of the wall, both videos received incredible traction Online with links appearing on Vimeo, NYTimes.com, Trendcentral, The Atlantic, Hypebeast, The Wooster Collective, and many others. Thanks to this viral success and overwhelmingly positive response, Stella’s hand paint story lives on... The Stella Artois hand paint campaign won a Gold OBIE for the best Individual Execution, Traditional Billboard, at the 2010 OAAA Conference.
  6. 6. SCENARIO : For the opening of Dennis Hopper’s exhibit Sign of the Times at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery in New York, Dennis wanted to bring his iconic photographs to life as hand painted murals/billboards. The billboards had to be photorealistic and maintain complete artistic integrity of his images. DENNIS HOPPER SOLUTION : Shafrazi reached out to Colossal and commissioned our team of painters to handle the unique task. The Sky High crew came together, working around the clock to perfectly replicate Dennis’s iconic images into museum quality oil paintings. RESULT: Hopper, critics, and visitors all agreed, the photorealism was astounding and the exhibit was a huge success. After the initial New York gallery exhibit, the Colossal team was asked to paint more images from his archives for exhibitions in Abu Dhabi, Miami’s Art Basel, and a large show in Rome.
  7. 7. SCENARIO : Sailor Jerry was looking for an authentic way to engage with their unique target demographic. SAILOR JERRY SOLUTION : Colossal offered the perfect mix of mainstream, high-impact media and organic, original style to hit home with the alternative mindset of the brand’s rebellious rum drinker. The Colossal team grabbed their gear to hit New York, Denver, San Francisco, LA, and Austin, seamlessly integrating Sailor Jerry’s original tattoo artwork into each city’s natural landscape. RESULT: The strategy worked. The murals sparked viral conversation in all of the markets covered. Sailor Jerry fans came out to speak about the artwork, the brand, and most importantly, provoked a consumer-generated dialogue surrounding the campaign. The client couldn’t have been happier with the success in reaching their target - a group that would have typically resisted a mainstream media push. Sailor Jerry decided to extend the campaign for a second consecutive year, and is even considering a northern mission, confident that Colossal can stir the same level of buzz in Canada that we did here in the U.S.
  8. 8. SCENARIO : Hugo Boss needed the perfect partner to help develop an exciting and buzzworthy campaign around their global design competition, “Hugo Create.” The competition challenged participants to create artwork based on the brand’s weekly design themes. HUGO BOSS SOLUTION : Hugo Boss teamed up with Colossal to find twelve powerful venues that could collectively act as an outdoor gallery for the twelve winning designs and allow the public to discover the paintings creatively scattered throughout New York City’s natural landscape. Tapping into our permanent inventory and scouting team, Colossal delivered twelve unique locations that each served as a canvas to recreate the winning designs. RESULT: Our combined capabilities of permanent inventory and hand paint production helped Hugo Boss to deliver a holistic, turn-key campaign that could be leveraged both virally and editorially. Very pleased with the campaign, the brand created hugocreate.com, a contest homepage with informa- tion about the winners, their artwork, and a Manhattan Gallery exclusively dedicated to our hand painted murals.
  9. 9. “Contrary to popular belief, New York’s most spectacular art isn’t hanging at the “The best compliment I can pay the Colossal team is in the way we came to work with Museum of Modern Art or at the Met.
