Birch Aquarium: Their World Awaits

Home to thousands of exotic sea creatures, Birch Aquarium is the public outreach center for the world-renowned Scripps Institute of Oceanography. In a crowded southern California tourism market, attention doesn’t come easy.

We helped set a summer attendance record.


Ready when you are, Sea Horse.

Taking a page from Hollywood, we showcased star power--because the ‘stars’ at Birch are some of the most colorful, awe-inspiring species on the planet. No need for copy clutter. The simplicity of design elements would keep the focus on vibrant original photography, emphasizing the bold and even astonishing look of the ‘main attractions.’
