Posts Tagged ‘Creative’

If you’ve heard this before…

WhereI’m sure you’ve noticed that the NW Harley blog hasn’t seen an update in months.  In fact, it’s been 9-months since the last post.  Sure, I’ve approved a comment here and there, but mostly it’s been crickets.

Somehow I got swamped at work or maybe it was all the other distractions in life and priority changes in this turbulent world.  Quitting was a tempting option especially when it seemed like I was writing for others (which isn’t necessarily bad), but it can’t be the primary reason to blog as it saps you of your creative energy.

Someone told me a while back, that dedication was doing what you said you would do long after the mood you said it in had passed.

Well the mood has passed and I’m upping my commitment to post more often on this site.

H-D Liberation Video

Last night, Harley-Davidson launched the next version of their No Cages campaign during the season premiere of Sons of Anarchy (SOA) on FX.

The advertising spot, called “Liberation“, adds to the limited portfolio of creative developed as part of the motor companies crowd sourcing strategy, introduced last year.

Mark-Hans Richer, Harley-Davidson’s Chief Marketing Officer stated: “This latest effort builds upon our momentum as the on-road motorcycles market share leader in the U.S., as well as our leadership in sales to young adults, women, Hispanics and African-Americans and the growth we’ve made in international markets.”  He went on to say… “this process has helped to liberate the creativity of our most passionate of fans.”

Like previous No Cages creative, crowd-sourcing partner Victors & Spoils shared the Harley-Davidson creative brief broadly online, and the best idea was further developed and the creator rewarded. In the Liberation case, the idea came from 30-year-old film maker and visual content creator Benjamin Swan of Sioux Falls, SD, who believes that collaboration breeds creation.

And speaking of Sons of Anarchy and last night’s premier for the 4th season. Below are eight video clips from the new season that you might want to check out whether you tuned-in last night or not.
