Built For Bold
The U.S. Bank Stadium cover was a true copywriting test, considering it was a custom issue I was contracted to do for big-time clients: SMG and MSFA, organizations tasked with creating and running the stadium. So I needed to sell them on a number of things, including a clever tie to the stadium's brand on the cover. The U.S. Bank Stadium issue was published in the fall of 2016, coinciding with the stadium's opening. It won the Gold Award in the 2017 Minnesota Magazine & Publishing Association (MMPA) Excellence Awards in the category of Single-Topic Issue for Business Trade Organizations.
