#iammidcity

BY MID CITY STUDIO
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 31, 2017

Mid City - Baton Rouge is the most diverse area in the city.  So how do we bring together 40,000 people to identify as one?  You create a branding campaign that does not tell them who they. Instead you launch a campaign that lets them tell Baton Rouge who, what, when and where Mid City-BR is.   Listen as Lynley Farris and William Doran tell you the story of how one hashtag and thousands of photos later, a region of the Baton Rouge has declared I Am Mid City.
