PR is like baseball. Hours of semi mundane fundamentals that truly make up the strength of a team and then some rare and overly exciting moments that determine success or failure. At Backbone we are diligent about the fundamental and executional aspects of our job. We do our research, watch and listen, focusing on the fundamentals, all the while waiting for a chance to come up big in extra innings. It is that extra effort that makes the difference.
Here’s a quick summary of three extra innings/projects that we have been affiliated with recently that span video, print and digital.
Teresa Kellett from Sprint and Dom Sagolla from Chaotic Moon were recently featured on Fast Company’s 30 Second MBA. We all met at the GOAT, a Gathering of Artists, Athletes and Technologists in Jackson over the last few years. Fun to see their opinions on the culture of creativity.
Peter Metcalf from Black Diamond Inc. sent us an early holiday present: Utah’s Wasatch Range: Four Season Refuge. For anyone who has climbed, hiked or skied in the Wasatch this book conveys the vital nature this patchwork of public and private land has on the Greater Salt Lake area. Published by Utah based photographer Howie Garber with articles from Mayor Ralph Becker, Brooke Willams, Representative Jim Matheson and Andrew McLean, the book combines thoughtful essays on the delicate balance of the central Wasatch and the perils of loving a place to death. Don’t be fooled by the stellar wildlife photography and germane coffee table feel; a close read of the content prompted Snowbird to refuse to sell the book at their resort even though it is in the heart of Little Cottonwood canyon.
With the USA Pro Cycling Challenge rolling through Aspen, Something Independent partnered with Whole Foods to interview Backbone on a Local’s Take on race day. Check it out! And congrats to Tejay who took home the stage at Crested Butte on Tuesday!
