Charter Fishing Campaign
- Illinois Department of Natural Resources
Design Direction, Design
Few people are aware of the world-class sports fishing that takes place just off Chicago’s shores. Span designed a campaign that builds excitement for the sport and brings attention to Illinois’ Charter Boat Fishing industry in collaboration with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and regional charter captains.
A bold set of billboards feature original illustrations of game-fishing royalty — Lake Michigan’s Coho Salmon and Lake Trout. Strong typography evolves the classic fishing industry aesthetic found on bait and tackle shop signage into a fresh and contemporary look.
