BRAND IDENTITY • COPYWRITING


Ziplining is terrifying. You should definitely do it. We did as part of the creative process to reimagine a brand identity for ZipKC, a zipline park in Bonner Springs, KS. Skimming the tops of trees and trying not to scream in front of your co-workers makes for a crazy awesome work outing.

For the new brand, we needed an icon/mascot that could live and play throughout the system. So, since we were hanging out in the tree tops, a tree dwelling creature seemed fitting. In this case a squirrel named Zippy. We gave him wings and an attitude and then set him free. The rest is hashtag heaven.
