Hub Strategy is Winning...

SAN FRANCISCO – June 16, 2011 - Hub Strategy and Communication (Hub), a San Francisco-based creative collective, announced today that they were selected to win this year's Silver Telly Award for their Jawbone online video, "My Talk." In addition, they took home a Bronze award for their Oakland Athletics “Green Collar Baseball” campaign. The campaign included television spots, transit signage, outdoor and LED billboards, print ads, and online banners – both flash and rich media – focusing both on the larger “Green Collar” brand message as well as specific promotions. Hub Strategy also took home 8 Bronze awards for their individual Oakland A’s commercials.

The premise for the 2010 Oakland A’s campaign stemmed from the fact that, unlike most other MLB teams that are loaded with big name players and big time contracts, the A’s are known for raising and creating amazing young talent that eventually turn into superstars. What they lack in experience, they make up for with an extra measure of effort, creativity, and fun – playing baseball the way it was meant to be played: full of hustle and real passion. Hub coined this lively spirit, hard-working attitude, and deep-rooted love for the game: “Green Collar Baseball.”

As a result of the “Green Collar Baseball” campaign, the A’s sold over 40,000 more single game tickets than the previous year. The client was so pleased with the campaign that they decided to extend it a second year through the upcoming 2011 baseball season.
