Work Examples

Generating Buzz and Securing Media Coverage

MPD Ventures was engaged by Vonlane, a Dallas-based motor coach service provider, to create a public relations strategy for its business launch in 2014.  The goal was to secure media coverage in the company’s two primary markets–Dallas and Austin–and to generate buzz among consumers.  The campaign was a success, generating significant broadcast and print coverage, with MPD’s work on the launch garnering a Clarion Award.  As Vonlane has expanded to include service in every major Texas city and received a host of awards for business growth and leadership, MPD has continued to provide strategic public relations support.

Serving as a Multi-Purpose Marketing Partner

Owned and operated by the City of Terrell, Terrell Municipal Airport plays host to two major annual public events and is a hub of community activity.  MPD has served as the airport’s go-to marketing arm for several years, providing a variety of support ranging from event management and promotion to creation of a campaign to mark the airport’s 75th anniversary.  Among other initiatives, MPD helped the airport launch and manage a social media program, and later trained a city staffer to take over the reins.

Showcasing Client Success Stories

A leader in emergency medical billing, EMERGICON had countless client success stories to tell, but needed a compelling way to get the word out.  EMERGICON engaged MPD to produce video testimonials highlighting the company’s approach to service and its remarkable results. MPD handled the video planning and production from start to finish, including interview preparation and approvals with EMERGICON’s clients and guidance on the best ways to leverage the content for maximum social media and search engine impact.

Supporting Growth and Showcasing Successes

Dallas-based civil engineering firm Hayden Consultants sought to grow its business by educating potential clients and promoting its growth in local media. MPD helped the firm capture the key messages that define the company, then translated them into an improved website, multiple email and PR campaigns and a consistent brand identity that highlighted the firm’s strengths.  MPD continued to provide Hayden with periodic PR, marketing and web support for a decade.  In 2018, when the firm completed a successful merger with a large national company, MPD helped create a custom video to showcase this major milestone in Hayden’s growth.

Revitalizing a Century-Old Brand

When venerable public finance law firm McCall, Parkhurst & Horton (McCall) sought to update its corporate identity, MPD created a crisp new logo and stationery package along with a website that showcases the firm’s history and present-day industry leadership.  MPD is currently working with McCall on a variety of branding and event projects to commemorate the firm’s 100th anniversary.

Creating a Big-League Brand

myRxMedSaver is a prescription discount provider that battles for market share against large national competitors with massive TV and radio advertising budgets.  To help the company prop up its brand presence in the eyes of consumers, MPD created a new myRxMedSaver logo and website.  In support of a major mobile app launch, MPD provided project management and graphic design along with production of a custom animated video.  MPD also handles ongoing brand and direct marketing efforts for myRxMedSaver.
