1010 Midtown, Atlanta / Best Color Ad/ Best Series of Related Print Ads

Builder: Daniel Corp., Atlanta

Ad agency/PR firm: Miles Strategic DNA, Denver



When 1010 Midtown hit the market in Atlanta, there were 10 other buildings in the area all competing for the same buyer.

"For almost every single ad, the main graphic was a picture of the building." says David Miles of Miles Strategic DNA (formerly Milesbrand).

Miles knew his client would have to do something different. They came up with the positioning, "Life on the Curve," because the condominium is located in Midtown — right on the curve of Peachtree Street. Life on the Curve was also meant to represent what living downtown in an urban, "hip" area, means to people: culture, nightclubs, restaurants and retail.

"We blended a reflection of the building into graphics that represent the different lifestyle elements," says Miles. "You have a pair of black leather boots representing retail. You have a piano representing the arts."

Mile says the martini ad, which won for Best Color Ad, seems to be the ad people liked like most. He says the entire series of related print ads, which also won gold, has captivated the entire market.

"Magazines that we were not running the ad call up and ask for the art," he says. "They ran the ads for free. We were able to hit about a 20 percent sales rate at the opening. If you go to Atlanta today, everybody knows 1010 through this campaign."
