Founder: THE POP BAG NYC // 

A Pop Bag = a free bag full of product samples, treats and coupons tailored to specific movie audiences: women, men + families, distributed at the end of the film as moviegoers were exiting.

The Pop Bag was a Harvard Business School Case Study. 

It was experiential advertising at its purest and most effective. Brands loved connecting with micro-targeted consumers by placing something directly in hand in a fun, trusted environment tethered  to the enjoyment of the movies. Moviegoers loved receiving a free bag of new products, and movie theaters appreciated having a competitive edge over home entertainment, other theaters, and added value. 

CREATED A BRAND IDENTITY encompassing logo, tagline, web design + copy, social, press releases, packaging, signage, media kit, sales sheets, etc. 


The Pop Bag: an alternative / experiential form of advertising that benefitted brands, theaters and movie-goers.
