In this example, we branded a sermon series across three church campuses over 40 miles apart. External windows of every church location were wrapped with sticker graphics, and congregants entered into themed hallways where a live central broadcast from the main campus played on the TVs. We even featured pop-up stores supporting the theme selling books, journals, pens, coffee mugs and more.
