The New New Frontier

Agency: Human


Full-service digital agency Human has expanded MyDenver, a multimedia advertising campaign intended to drive traffic to hip, historic district Downtown Denver. The objective is to get visitors to ditch rigid plans and encourage exploration. It’s the first integrated campaign for the “MyDenver” theme since its 2022 debut.

Downtown Denver Partnership (DDP) hired the agency to drive more traffic to Downtown Denver, expand the time people spend there, and increase the number of locations they visit. The digital (paid social, OTT) and outdoor (billboards, bus wraps and light-rail wraps) campaign will run from now until the end of the year in Denver and Denver Metro. More specifically, the work will appear on Instagram, Hulu, Sling TV, Discovery, Disney, digital billboards throughout downtown Denver, bus and light-rail wraps and ads in Union Station. The agency won the assignment in January.

The Video shows the excitement, fun, and range of activities one can pursue in a day in the life of Downtown Denver. One video shows a tapestry of squares featuring individuals experiencing their ideal MyDenver—think Brady Bunch show titles, only more. It encourages people to find their MyDenver and directs viewers to Other ads focus on an individual’s experiences through quick cuts of outdoor scenes: people riding bikes, buying food at kiosks, skateboarding, and playing basketball as upbeat music plays. At the end, the subject is revealed. “This is MyDenver,” he says, and his image joins the others in that board of boxes.
