San Antonio, TX (April 2009) – Drew/Walker was selected by Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) San Antonio to assess the agency’s current print advertising effectiveness. CASA needed to ensure their media spending was being maximized when recruiting new volunteer advocates.
“A core part of our methodology for assessing effectiveness is determining a sustainable competitive advantage, a reason to believe, and the consistency over time,” said Mollie Walker, strategic partner of Drew/Walker. “We took a look at the advantages CASA was promoting about their program to understand if the program’s key benefits were being articulated. The findings revealed that CASA could receive better results by placing a stronger focus on the child versus the volunteers CASA was trying to recruit.
As a result, Drew/Walker developed a print campaign showing a child silenced with theheadline “SPEAK OUT, ABUSED CHILDREN NEED A VOICE.” The campaign proved to be successful with the rate of volunteers rapidly surpassing the previous year in half the time.
“They taught us how to brand ourselves,” said Janet Ketcham, Executive Director of CASA, “We now have a better understanding of branding, the power of words, and templates to brand our organization in all we need to do.”

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS (Sept. 17, 2008) – Drew/Walker, a San Antonio-based advertising and branding agency, worked with Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas (TMMTX) to create and build its brand new Visitor & Education Center.
“We used experiential marketing for everything from the exhibition planning to the online marketing of the TMMTX Visitor & Education Center,” said Andrew M. Anguiano, creative partner and CEO of Drew/Walker. “It is a great honor to have played a pivotal role in the creation and success of the Toyota Texas Visitor Center. We appreciate the opportunity Toyota afforded us in helping to promote the quality vehicles it builds. Toyota Texas is not only an American story, but a Texas story. With its quest for innovation and continuous improvement, it sets a high standard of excellence in the automotive industry.”
The TMMTX Visitor & Education Center creatively tells the story of Toyota and how this automotive leader builds world-class vehicles. Toyota Texas wanted a center that would recreate the plant experience. While plant tours are given, a maximum of three groups of 40 people per day are permitted inside. Thus, the purpose of The Visitor & Education Center is to provide a sense of the Toyota Production Process for those unable to tour the actual plant.
“This visitor experience goes outside traditional media and will fill a need for people of all ages, including students, tourists, community members, and business professionals who visit the plant,” said Mike De La Garza, Manager of External Affairs for Toyota Texas. “Drew/Walker helped make the Visitor & Education Center a reality from the beginning, conducting case studies of other visitor centers to help bring this groundbreaking exhibition to life. The Agency’s creativity, passion and tenacity shine through with this strategically-developed experience.”
