Jackson Marketing Group Named OBIE Award Finalist for Outstanding Outdoor Creative

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Jackson Marketing Group (JMG), South Carolina’s largest business-to-business (B2B) integrated marketing communications agency, has been named a 2014 OBIE Awards Finalist. The OBIE Awards honor creative excellence in Out of Home (OOH) advertising campaigns.

The recognized work was done on behalf of Big League World Series, a division of Little League® Baseball and Softball for players ages 15-18, which hosts an international baseball tournament annually in Easley, S.C.

JMG designed and produced an integrated marketing communications campaign that included outdoor billboards, radio spots, press releases, video and a commemorative poster collection. The OBIE Awards specifically recognized the outdoor billboard “Pitcher” for its simple yet bold design that married the message to the medium.
