MotorCity Casino Hotel Launches New Outdoor Campaign Brand Look

Warren, Michigan (December 4, 2012) –– Clever new MotorCity Casino Hotel billboards are popping up all over metro Detroit with an updated look and new messaging –– at MotorCity, you can enjoy a variety of luxurious amenities, from restaurants and live entertainment at Sound Board to gaming and the hotel and spa, all in one place. 

Created by Campbell Ewald, the new outdoor billboards juxtapose words and pictures to show the contrast and breadth of everything you can do at MotorCity Casino Hotel. For example, one of the boards shows images of a guest enjoying a concert at Sound Board and dice being rolled at a casino table next to the words “Rock. Roll.” Another board shows an image of different wines and a photo of a roulette table with the words “Red & White. Black & Red.” Other boards have messages like:

“Get amped up. And rubbed down.”
“Ante up. Mellow out.”
“Turn it up. Sleep it off.”

Jenny Holaday, senior vice president of operations at MotorCity Casino Hotel, said, “MotorCity has the widest variety of entertainment options for guests that are unmatched in the area. We want to drive that message in a fun, creative way to entice consumers to visit the one place in Detroit to escape for the best-in-class amenities all under one roof.”

“The fresh, colorful new look for the boards is built around a compelling and entertaining way to entice consumers to visit,” said Mark Simon, chief creative officer of Campbell Ewald, “and the juxtaposition of words helps to inform consumers on all the great things in store for them at MotorCity Casino Hotel.”

The outdoor boards will run in the metro Detroit area through spring 2013.
