Educating beach-goers in Dewey about protecting their skin.

Leah Haugh and Dante LaPenta made some statewide and national PR noise for ab+c Creative Intelligence. The pair won first place awards from the Delaware Press Association and the National Federation of Press Women (NFPW). Let’s see how they made it happen.

And as the behavior change marketing experts at ab+c know better than most, getting people to even consider a behavior modification (like turning off the tanning bed) is no easy task.Read full post...

Philly businesses take notice of ab+c

How does an ad agency not become the shoemaker’s child?

Lightning in a Bottle Competition
By doing its own advertising and marketing. As a 43-year-old agency that expanded into the city of Philadelphia — known for cheesesteaks, relentless sports fans and a statue of Rocky at the steps of the Art Museum — ab+c wanted to be noticed. And kick-ass print ads alone weren’t gonna cut it. Giving back to the community in some way seemed like a bright idea. So we came up with a way to help a local business grow, which in turn would help the community grow: a competition — just like the Hunger Games — to find a great business with an innovative idea.
