Clients & Experience
At Blue Sky Marketing, we want to be an integrated part of our client's marketing programs. Our clients are our friends and we share some of their stories below. If you want to hear it from them, watch a testimonial. If you want to join them, please contact us.
Frank's Americana Revival
When we learned that Mike Shine was acquiring Frank's Chop House, we knew this was something that Blue Sky Marketing wanted to be involved with. Mike is the consummate restaurateur with more than 30 years of experience. Couple that with the challenge of taking over a River Oaks institution (even of only a few years) and finding a path to a new brand while appeasing existing loyalists. Sounded like fun to us.
For Frank's, we started with the basics of the brand by project managing the creative process of developing a new logo. We presented three graphic designers' portfolios to Frank's and thus it started. We project managed the new website, mobile website, social media changes, and updating all of Frank's various directory listings.
On the day of the brand announcement, Frank's had its best Thursday ever, which for a well-established restaurant was a "nice" result.
Our marketing and branding work for Frank's was recognized by the American Marketing Association Houston with two Crystal Awards.

Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair
The five-day Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair, put on by the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management, is recognized as the most anticipated culinary events/attractions of the year. Located in historic Sugar Land just 15 minutes from Houston, its multiple tastings, dinners, cooking demonstrations and seminars have achieved a reputation as a rollicking good time.
Event tickets are only available online. Blue Sky Marketing's challenge was to re-design the website with a minimal budget in order to improve the customer experience on the website and boost ticket sales through online marketing including a mix of email marketing, paid ads online and social media.
We put together a talented team of graphic designers and programmers to carry out our marketing vision. We not only saw a 25% increase in ticket sales, the redesign of the website won a Crystal Award at the AMA Houston's 2013 award show.

From that one development, the relationship between Johnson Development Corp. and Blue Sky Marketing has grown to include all Houston area communities (Sienna Plantation, Riverstone, Edgewater, Tuscan Lakes, Fall Creek, Woodforest, Harmony, Cross Creek Ranch, Harvest Green and Jordan Ranch).
With the Johnson Development team, Blue Sky Marketing focuses on providing digital marketing strategy and proactive counsel on new technologies, as well as the back-end technology for their portfolio of residential real estate and master planned community websites.

EB Inc Event Rentals and Design
EB Inc, an event rentals and design company, engaged Blue Sky Marketing to deliver a strategic brand refresh while providing an easy online user experience to navigate its extensive collection.
The marketing goal was to enhance the customer experience in reviewing the EB Inc catalog eliciting future revenue growth. EB Inc has the largest event inventory in Houston and makes everything custom in-house. Having a website that can display all of their precious inventory is invaluable. We remapped the website structure, created a manageable inventory database within the website and added an easy-to-use search filter for the user.
The design goal was to create something with approachable elegance - true to their original name, Elegant Beginnings. We, along with the client couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of the new logo and website. EB Inc services the Greater Houston, Dallas, and Austin Metropolitan areas.
