In order to create buzz around a new logo that we designed for Brandon Orthodontics, The Ad Shoppe created the "Get Spotted" campaign, which uses the logo bumper magnets that you've likely seen on cars all over South Orange County. Brandon Orthodontics distributes the magnets to patients and new consultations, and when a logo magnet is seen by "spotters," the vehicle's owner is entered into a drawing to win a free iPod.
"The Ad Shoppe always goes above and beyond. It's not just the extra mile — they go all out! Owner Susie Lantz is our biggest supporter. We are amazed at everything she does for us."
— Dr. Alex J. Brandon, Brandon Orthodontics
