gyro San Francisco Wins SMART Technologies

[San Francisco – November 9, 2012] gyro, the global ideas shop, has been tapped by SMART Technologies to create their first global brand campaign.

SMART provides innovative and interactive collaborative solutions for education, business and government. It is a global leader in interactive displays and related products.

Following its immense success in the education space, SMART is looking to expand its education footprint globally and grow its reach in the business market.

One of the key priorities for new Vice President of Marketing Jeff Lowe was to launch a global brand campaign.

The campaign will center around the idea that SMART Technologies inspires effective team collaboration and meaningful individual participation, and in the process ends the tragedy of disengagement for students and workers.

“Research shows us that 1 in 3 employees is engaged. This level of neutrality results in a lack of motivation and, in turn productivity”, said Lowe. “SMART Technologies solutions are inspiring collaboration across the classroom and in the workplace.

gyro San Francisco was hired to tell this story. “For any creative person, working with SMART is a dream come true,” said Steffan Postaer, Executive Creative Director, gyro San Francisco. “Their technology is advanced but the idea is so simple: With SMART everyone can contribute to something greater.”
