Recurring recognition for Advantage Advertising

For the fifth time in the past four years, Lewiston’s Advantage Advertising has been recognized by Bleacher Report for their football marketing work on behalf of their clients. The agency’s poster designs for the University of Idaho Vandals and University of Wyoming Cowboys placed at number 5 and number 13 respectively.

“Now Idaho can also lay claim to having one of the best schedule posters for 2015, one that creatively uses its state’s unique shape as a way to highlight its best players,” commented Feature Columnist Brian Pedersen on in ranking Idaho at #5. The Idaho poster can be viewed here.

“Wyoming had last year’s top-ranked schedule poster, and the Cowboys have another good one for 2015…It’s a great mix that is closely associated with the Cowboys, and to drive this home there are actual cowboys with lassos riding out from the prairie,” he commented on the #13 Wyoming ranking. The Wyoming poster can be viewed here.

The 2015 poster designs, created by Advantage’s Lead Designer Nathan Allen, mark the fifth time in the past four years that Advantage Advertising has been ranked nationally by Bleacher Report. All 50 ranked 2015 posters can be viewed here.

Last year, the agency’s design for the University of Wyoming Cowboy football poster was ranked #1 nationally. Previously, the agency’s designs for the University of Idaho Vandals ranked at #4 in 2012, and the Wyoming Cowboys ranked #17 in 2013.

Advantage Advertising has served as agency of record for U of I Athletics since 1995 and for the U of W Athletics since 2012, and was recently selected by the Colorado State University Athletic Department to develop its new marketing programs.

Job opening: Art Director at Rizen Creative

Rizen Creative in Boise is looking for an Art Director to join their team. From the job listing on LinkedIn:

Rizen Creative is looking for an Art Director.

Who’s (or what’s) Rizen Creative?

Rizen Creative–you can call us Rizen–is a creative studio in downtown Boise. We are nine underdogs that work on behalf of a bunch of underdogs (we call them clients). We spend our days thinking, creating and executing work that “nails it” for said clients. It could be a video, a website, a facebook contest, a print ad or a killer strategy. Whatever it is, we do it with passion. You’ll find a happy family environment, where we motivate each other to be better. You will not find cubicles, egos or bs.

You’ll also find a stocked fridge and a candy drawer.

Who are you?

You are a driven Art Director (maybe you call yourself a designer, a creative, or just a really talented human). You know the difference between kerning and leading. You see things differently…that’s ok in our book, frankly, required. You play well with others and love the art of critique. Good enough isn’t good enough for you. You take great joy in telling stories about creative work, whether it’s yours or someone you’ve never met. You yell out font names on signs while driving. You live design.

So what does a Rizen Art Director do?

They make ideas come to life…
