Spiffing up for the prez

23 May

Another special visitor to Ireland arrived today.  Barack Obama (or Barry O’Bama as he’s been called a few times around Ireland) is visiting the country today.  Among his stops is a trip to Moneygall in County Offaly which is the site of his ancestral home.  In preparation for his visit, Dulux paint manufacturers offered the town of Moneygall a free makeover as a part of the worldwide initiative by the brand in their Let’s Colour Project.  As a marketer, I really admire this campaign.  I’ve already seen it in action around Ireland and it’s a smart way to get presence.  As a design lover, it’s fun to see the transformation of so many places with paint.  Check out the video on the website.

    What a wonderful idea! Especially since I haven’t seen the sun of late. I watched the video too! It was so great to see the people of the communities helping each other to make a brighter tomorrow ;) Thanks, Amy! Love your posts.
