LOGO HONORING LEADERSHIP
The Clintons returned to Little Rock, May 3rd, to officially dedicate the newly renamed Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. And that’s our logo! We’re honored to work with such visionary local leaders and we look forward to the many great improvements planned for our airport.
LET THE BACK-PATTING CONTINUE.
We are thrilled to report an amazing night at the 2012 Arkansas PRSA Prism Awards. Eric Rob & Isaac won Best of Show and 17 Prism Awards (we were finalists in 21 categories) for our clients’ work! Wow! We are beyond excited. The Prism Awards are special because they are judged by out-of-state PR practitioners with a focus on results and the use of creative and powerful strategies. Basically, the Prisms are about much more than pretty pictures; they are about results tied to bottom-line business goals.
LET THE BACK-PATTING COMMENCE.
The stars of the Arkansas marketing and advertising world were out in full at the Arkansas ADDY Awards, held at the Argenta Community Theater. It was a night of reconnecting with old friends, recognizing great work in the industry and lots and lots of live tweeting. We did pretty well, especially with the stellar work we were up against.
CELEBRATING A CENTURY OF SAVING LIVES
In case you stopped counting at some point, Arkansas Children’s Hospital is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. Throughout the last century, Children’s has emerged as a nationally recognized and highly treasured Arkansas institution. And we were stoked when they asked us to help them develop a campaign to commemorate their 100th birthday.
HELP BETHLEHEM HOUSE BUILD A HOME FOR THE HOMELESS.
While the fortunate consider the thread count on their sheets or which take-out to drive thru, others go without a bed to lay their heads or food to feed their families. Our new client, Bethlehem House, has made it their mission to provide these individuals with a warm bed and warm meals within a safe, comfortable shelter. But the 100-year-old Victorian house in Conway that has housed the program since 1991 is in desperate need of immeasurably costly repairs. It’s falling down around staff and residents. Literally. In November, the leg of a resident’s bed fell through the floor, straight to the ground. So this holiday season at ERI, we’ve made it our mission to help them build a Home for the Homeless.
IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE HOLIDAY HOUSE.
It’s OFFICIALLY the holiday season; the weather is cold, the leaves are changing color, everything is pumpkin-spiced and the Junior League of Little Rock’s Holiday House starts this week! ERI again had the privilege of developing all of Holiday House’s creative materials, which not only adds to our portfolio, but also allows us to participate in something really worthwhile in the community. Not to mention it gave us an excuse to listen to Christmas music even before Halloween.
LOG ON TO STYLE.
Eric Rob & Isaac recently helped completely overhaul I.O. Metro Furniture Stores’ website, including the launch of its new e-commerce function. That’s right. Now every chic-yet-oh-so-affordable I.O. Metro item is available at your fingertips – not to mention free shipping for a limited time!
GO (DAN)FORTH AND PROSPER.
Please join us as we rise and stand in unison to give a warm ERI welcome to our newest account executive and client’s best friend, Stuttgart’s own Stephanie Danforth. (Pause for applause.)

Unless you’ve been busy backpacking Europe or picketing Wall Street, you’ve no doubt heard the news that lots of banks are now charging folks for using their debit cards. (Oh, the humanity!)
BEST OF SHOW. TWO YEARS IN A ROW.
For the second consecutive year, Eric Rob & Isaac claimed the coveted Best of Show Award at the 2011 Prism Awards presented by the Arkansas chapter of the Public Relations Society of America for the “Real. Live. Fun.” campaign we created for Riverfest 2010. Since the Prisms are all about results and not just pretty pictures, we were quite honored. 250,000 people did attend Riverfest that year with a $25 million+ impact on the community. Put that in your ROI pipe and smoke it.
