Website & Branding Upgrade


In 2008, Dick’s came to VIE when they needed a new website and updated branding.  The challenge was to preserve their position as a beloved nostalgic Seattle institution while updating their web presence.


When Dick’s President Jim Spady explained, “people come back because Dick’s remains an island of continuity in a sea of change,” I knew we had our angle. I went with that nostalgic authenticity for the entire campaign.


Prime News Exposure


VIE garnered the iconic Seattle restaurant chain prime-time TV, Radio & Print news coverage, but the best moment for us was when VIE’s new Dick’s website was announced on the evening news. 


Social Media Penetration Strategy


VIE provided real-time response and promotion for Dick’s while managing their web presence and social media penetration from 2008-2010.  Their fan base grew to 100,000 on Facebook within months.  One online poll asking voters where the next restaurant should be built landed 140,000 votes and a lot of news coverage.
