Did you see that banner flying in the background during the Iowa Caucuses last night?

We did that. My agency, HenkinSchultz Communication Arts. It’s kind of a big deal.

From the Argus Leader report:

People around the country and the world saw the creative efforts of a Sioux Falls company during coverage of Thursday night’s Iowa caucus.

Marketing, advertising and public relations firm HenkinSchultz Communication Arts designed the Iowa Caucus Committee’s stage and backdrop for press events and to display Thursday’s caucus results.

The backdrop, designed by HenkinSchultz co-owner Kirby Schultz, measures 16 feet tall and 93 feet wide. It features an American flag that seems to wave in the breeze, three video projectors and a 22-foot LED screen.

The backdrop is similar to the one the company produced for the recent 2007 Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce annual meeting. HenkinSchultz also worked with a Des Moines-based firm on the project.

I’ve never been so close to something so big in my life.

(That’s what she said.)

Sorry. It’s Friday.


EDIT – I finally found some footage of the banner and staging. Kind of. See that waving flag in the background? That’s it.
