Feeling Lucky?

If so, you might want to take a look at the latest RFP issued by the Idaho Lottery. Well, three separate RFPs, if you really want to get technical about it.

According to the RFP letter issued by the Lottery:

The Idaho Lottery is issuing three separate Requests for Proposal (RFP); one for Media Services, one for Creative Services, and one for Strategic Planning. It is our intent to solicit proposals from responsible, responsive, and experienced firms who can provide one or more of these services. If applicable, Respondents may provide a bundled, full service price option as outlined in the three separate RFPs. This RFP document is designed to provide vendors with the information necessary for the preparation of competitive proposals to acquire the Idaho Lottery’s business.

Anyone interested in learning more about the components of the Idaho Lottery RFP can do so on the Marketing Services RFP page of the Idaho Lottery’s website.

The Idaho Lottery account is currently held by DaviesMoore, which was awarded the contract based in 2009, after the Lottery’s last venture into the RFP world.

And yes, I blatantly stole the headline for this post from here.

Skipping Stones

Read in your best Barney Stinson voice…

Haaaaave you met Skippy?

Skippy is skipping stones in Sun Valley (say that five times fast) through July 14th. And if I had to guess, I’d venture to say that it’s not a coincidence that this is running while attendees at the Allen and Company Conference in Sun Valley.

UPDATE: The Valley Sun posted a good recap of the Skippy project and some website traffic-related numbers and results here:

Acquisitions up North

Proof that not everything that happens in the marketing and advertising world in Idaho takes place in and around the Treasure Valley:

Advantage Advertising in Lewiston acquired Digital Barn Productions last month, according to the Lewiston Tribune.

The two firms have moved into a 1,600 square foot space in the Means Building in Lewiston, which has been “customized to include a video production studio with two editing suites, audio recording booth, conference and break rooms, lobby and offices for all of the current staff as well as room for several new hires.”

Dallas and Bobri Roberts, who founded what eventually became Digital Barn Productions in 1993, and Christopher Billow, a web and production manager, have joined Advantage’s current staff of six in the new space.

The full press release from both Advantage and Digital Barn is available here.
