Mississippi State Port Authority Port Of Gulfport Gantry Crane Campaign

Port of Gulfport Logo

The Objective & Strategy

The arrival of the Gantry Cranes to the Port of Gulfport was a unique opportunity to showcase extensive growth and progress for the Mississippi State Port Authority by emphasizing the iconic physical nature of the cranes themselves. The goal of the campaign was to educate the public and generate excitement about the Gantry Cranes’ arrival.

Our strategy was to develop a dynamic graphic look that created a sense of mystery and anticipation, while conveying the importance of the cranes. We incorporated high-design crane visuals and developed a unique color palette for all elements of the campaign. In the days leading up to their arrival we coordinated a social media and digital billboard campaign to tease their arrival.

Social media campaign elements included custom animations designed to attract and engage Facebook and Twitter users.

Blessing of the Cranes

An event called “The Blessing of the Cranes” was held to commemorate the arrival of the cranes. The custom illustration was used to produce several well-received collateral items such as limited edition posters for presentation to local dignitaries and selected attendees.
