It is our passion to be a part of our client’s growth and success! It was a privilege to witness history as White County Medical Center recently announced its new name for their expanding health network: Unity Health.
Think Advertising is blessed to serve as the marketing partner behind the rebrand.
The new name and logo represent the unified effort to provide health services throughout north-central Arkansas. The four components of the Unity symbol make a medical cross comprised of linked U's representing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
Be on the lookout for the new Health Centered campaign!
It started only a few years ago, but a tradition that I have started is buying my wife Steph a weekend getaway for later in the year. It happened by accident. We had been married about 10 years at the time and had never been back to the cabins we stayed in when we got married. I decided to surprise her with a weekend stay there. The problem was that, because of bad winter weather, we could not go until March. Now, I try to make sure we never visit the same place twice, and I look forward to researching what little towns have in terms of hideaways, bed and breakfast places and local cuisine.
We are pumped to share Harding Lady Bison Basketball #LEGACY poster that Grant Dillion and Will Krech created for the team! Look for the posters around the Harding University campus and Searcy later this week!
Kudos to Kirdon Cannon and Jacob Hardin for assisting with the photoshoot. And, special thanks to Coach Walker, Tabitah Haney, Arielle Saunders, Montana Lewis and the Rhodes Rowdies for making it possible!
