Saint George's Asks, "Do You Have a Dragon in Your House?"

Klündt | Hosmer recently wrapped up a campaign for Saint George's School, which consisted of direct mail post cards and a radio spot. The campaign centered around the school's mascot and communicates the unique qualities of Saint George's School, such as offering students personalized attention to develop their intellectual, artistic, creative and athletic potential.

The campaign's purpose was to help brand awareness and increase enrollment inquires. It was well-received when the direct mail post cards landed in homes within the greater Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area.

The radio spot utilized voice talent from the United States and Britain, adding a unique, authentic voice to the story of the Saint George's dragon. It was written and directed by Klündt | Hosmer and produced by Hamilton Studio.

This was a fun and creative campaign to develop, and it reflected the character and nature of the progressive thinking at Saint George's School. Go Dragons!


Wear Your Support for Japan

A few weeks ago Mits Nakamura, Asia-Pacific Market Research Analyst at HOTSTART, asked us if we would design a t-shirt to raise support for relief efforts following the massive earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11th. The death toll and missing people as of April 15th is over 28,000. About 140,000 people are still living in shelters.

After quickly agreeing to help, we created two designs for the t-shirts. One features the word LOVE and the other consists of a design combining the words HOPE2 and JAPAN on the back. On the front are the same messages in Japanese.

Mits and his team from Spokane-Nishinomiya Sister City Society decided to offer both t-shirts and Gale Coston at Stadium Sports donated the printing. You can purchase a shirt for only $10 each, with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Tsunami relief effort.

To order your t-shirt email:

Rypien Winemakers' Dinner Invitation

The Rypien Foundation is a local organization headed by Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien. The Foundation supports local families battling childhood cancer.

Each year, the Rypien Foundation hosts the Winemakers' Dinner, a fundraising event where supporters come together for a silent and live auction, and five-course gourmet dinner paired with premium regional wines. The 7th annual event was held at the Manito Golf and Country Club on March 12.

Mark Rypien and the Foundation board asked us to create the formal invitation, menu/program and poster for the event. As a proud sponsor of the Rypien Foundation, we were happy to donate our talents to support this caring and effective organization.

The night was a great success with over $135,000 raised to fund organizations and programs that support these Inland Northwest families.
