 SHOP TALK @ SUPER BOWL ‘19

Victor Group Creative was tasked with designing The Social Club Grooming Co’s signature Shop Talk event for the 2019 Super Bowl.

In an effort to bring together current and former NFL players in an inviting space, The Victor Group designed a barber shop activation to facilitate a panel for the Social Club Grooming Co. while encouraging meaning dialogue on various topics. The Social Club Grooming Co. partnered with the NFL Players’ Engagement Group to foster a conversation on what it’s like to be a NFL player on and off the field. Panelists shared their thoughts and opinions on the selected topics while prioritizing self care by receiving hair cuts from the Social Club Grooming Co.’s barbers.

How We Did It

Our primary color palette consisted of black, charcoal, dark, warm wood tones, and whites (inspired by The Social Grooming Company’s masculine aesthetic). The charcoal walls provided depth and created a contrasting background for the warmer wood tones used in the shelving units.

We teamed up with Host and Toast to build out the stage and panels. It was hosted at the Hyatt Regency during Super Bowl Weekend.

The Super Bowl is such a large event that draws thousands of people to the area. Every event that's attached to it receives so much press and support. Our team really wanted to maintain a sense of intimacy amidst the crowd.

MS Awareness Advocate

#WeAreILLmatic is a campaign that unites Women of Color who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and want to redefine what sick looks like. So much of the MS community are ashamed of our illnesses and we have no need to live in shame. We may be ill but we are still dope. Why the name?  Illmatic is an iconic debut album by legendary rapper Nas. We want to leave a mark on culture like Nas did with Illmatic. We want to encourage people to fight our battles with illnesses like Nas did with Ether.  The idea of #WeAreILLmatic, this badassness doesn’t exist without Nas - And yes, we got his permission to borrow the name for this campaign. Reese now serves as ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society where she is an influencer, activist and mentor within the MS community.

What happens when you bring together a group of diverse women with various careers during happy hour? The formation of a powerful network.

The Victor Group teamed up with Verizon to host an intimate, curated dinner party for affluent businesswomen in search of a new way to network.

A safe space where you actually get to chime in on the conversation.

A space to discuss self care strategies for busy women.

An environment where you meet other women with shared experiences.

A group of motivated, impactful women entrepreneurs eager to propel forward. This is it.

2018 WOTY: COZY

A USER GENERATED SOCIAL CAMPAIGN

Every year I choose a theme: a word. It defines my year and serves as a constant reminder of what direction I want my year to go in. For 2018, I selected COZY. Shortly after, my followers flooded me with their cozy sightings. I shared my word with my Instagram followers and made it known every time I saw it. If I felt cozy, my followers would also. Cozy became more than a word, it’s became a lifestyle.


So Why Cozy?

Why not cozy? In 2018, I wanted to create a more relaxed life that really affords me the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of my labor. I work hard, and I’m great at what I do. (Need more proof? Here’s a recap from my Lexus or other company -insert hyperlink- event.) But, I sought comfort.

So often, society tells us that we need to have the latest Louis bag and the newest BMW in order to live well. I recognized I didn't need to have everything to have a life well lived. I just needed my basic needs met. I need to be COZY.

COZY, By the Numbers

In the process of sharing my word of the year, I empowered others to do that same. I developed a campaign. Now, when people say me they bring up cozy".

2015 Ekpe Udoh Camp

So Why Cozy?

Our clients, NBA Basketball players - Quincy Acy, Cory Jefferson, Ekpe Udoh, and Dewayne Dedmon, asked Victor Group LA to facilitate the creation of concept to execution of their youth basketball camps. For most players, this was their first annual basketball camp and they had no experience or prior relationships with brands for sponsorships. The largest challenge was using these camps to paint a picture and solidify our client’s brands. 

From conception, Victor Group LA brought these youth basketball camps from the ground up. For each client, promotional fliers specific to each event were designed to be sent out to companies for sponsorship and partnership opportunities. We facilitated the securing of event insurance, booking of venues, and registration website creation. Once the foundation was secure, our clients promoted their camps through their own social media outlets such as Instagram and Twitter. The response was instantaneous and we had hundreds of children sign up.

COZY, By the Numbers

“It was a challenge but I successfully managed all four camps all located in different places. I did everything from promotion, to getting press, to getting the kids, to sending out waivers, creating the website, designing the flyers, getting sponsors, etc.”
