NW Natural TV Spots

Longtime client NW Natural, recently asked Magneto to create two TV spots heralding the benefits of natural gas over other energies. The first spot, "Hassle" cleverly demonstrates how inconvenient starting a wood fire can be–from start to finish–versus a natural gas hearth. The second spot, "Responsibility" is a continuation of the "Blue" campaign we created previously, and focuses on the affordability, convenience and reliability of natural gas.

Markowitz Herbold Rebrand

Recently, the #1 ranked commercial litigation firm in Oregon (formerly Markowitz, Herbold, Glade and Mehlhaf) decided to return to their original founding name Markowitz Herbold, and called on Magneto to create a fresh new logo to reflect the shortened name. We were given a few limitations from their marketing committee: No maroon, pink or purple and absolutely no bunny rabbits in the new design. We think we did a pretty good job on following the rules.The new brand identity is symbolic of the continued evolution and growth of this extraordinary law firm. Congratulations, Markowitz Herbold!

Markowitz, Herbold, Glade & Mehlhaf Ad Campaign

Magneto worked with Portland business litigation firm Markowitz, Herbold, Glade & Mehlhaf to create a new ad campaign that not only showcases their superior work and talent, but also their personality. We used charts and graphs in a humorous way to make the point that the business litigation process doesn't have to be a bad experience. With MHGM it can, in fact, be a very pleasant one.
