So you think you can brand like the wild west cowboys use to brand their livestock? If you answer yes, then here is your chance to prove it!

One of my clients is a serial entrepreneur and recently acquired an airline, LocAir. So what does that have to do with you thinking you can brand and being able to prove it? Hold on to your bootstraps cowboy, I'll get there 😉

We are re-launching LocAir inclusive of re-branding. This is where you come in. We want to inspire, engage and challenge the brand gurus and the branding guru wanna be's to help us name the planes. Yup, we have planes but we have no name. And nope, we can't fly without a name.

So, won't you help us name the planes? There are special prizes for the winners including a FREE Bahama Vacation, Social Media Makeover and even $100 gift certificate to Bonefish Grill for the 3rd prize winner. It's not that hard. Just come up with a name. A name that will inspire, connect with audiences. A name that will look cool on the side of a plane. A name that will enable us to brand the airline different than the United Airlines, Continental and Delta's of the world today.

So put on your branding spurs, boots & chaps. It's time you take LocAir on a wild ride. Take us where we didn't know we could do. We know you got it in you. Show us what ya' got!
