2012 YMCA Strong Kids Campaign
An annual fundraising campaign focused on supporting programs dedicated to providing kids with every opportunity, the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign is an essential and impactful community initiative. With the new YMCA brand rolling out across the land, DRAY Media was tasked to rethink the Strong Kids Campaign website through the spectrum of the new brand language. Sleek and modern, we delivered an interface that put a human face to a very, very worthwhile campaign.

congratulations, Whiffen family!
On Tuesday, November 29, 2011, Lynn became the proud mother of the 7 lb 3.5 oz, Nathan Whiffen. Amazingly, Lynn's first words to our Creative Director, Pat Mackey when he visited the hospital was about work she hasn't finished! Now her main project is to keep Nathan and Princess Kaleigh on the move, a task she will accomplish with gusto!
Best wishes, from all of us at DRAY.

the astounding result of teamwork
We doff our collective hats to the YMCA-YWCA of Northeast Avalon on the opening of the Ches Penney Family Y, a brand spanking new state-of-the-art facility. It takes so much more than just force of will to conceptualize and execute on an ambitious vision, especially one with a 15 million dollar price tag. It takes coordinated teamwork, composed of unique talents and exceptionally steely nerves. Bravo!.

Avalon sale shows impact of good brand positioning
With the acquisition of Avalon Microelectronics by industry giant Altera, we saw the successful end to a strategic positioning campaign for this small technology upstart. Avalon Microelectronics had technological capabilities at the leading edge of the telecommunications industry. They had huge potential but lacked the resources of a larger firm to successfully exploit the opportunity. Avalon tasked DRAY Media to develop a brand platform for the company that would attractively position it and its unique product offering in front of industry players. With a year long implementation plan in place, we saw success in less than four months. Congratulations Avalon!
