DALLAS, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 3Headed Monster, a fast-growing Dallas-based agency founded in 2014, has been named agency of record for revolutionary sports brand Unequal Technologies. The partnership creates a unique new engagement model that brings together the agency, pioneering venture capital firm OE Capital Partners and a game-changing athletic brand.
Unequal Technologies has modified battlefield protection technology to provide maximum injury prevention for athletes in a variety of sports, with lightweight body armor that displaces impact, helping to reduce the risk of concussion and commotio cordis. Unequal gear is already used by many pro and college teams. Summer Games players will wear Unequal gear in Rio this month.
The national Unequal campaign will launch on ESPN and digital channels in August. Additional creative campaign elements include website, retail design, product design and overall brand strategy.
"3Headed Monster has the creative and strategic firepower Unequal needs to shake up the sports world," said Unequal CEO Rob Vito. "They offer big-agency talent in a scrappy startup form, and we love that combination."
3Headed Monster focuses on what it calls Tomorrow Brands™ – brands that are innovative, are committed to their customer and society at large, and demonstrate their values with action. 3Headed Monster Creative Chairman Shon Rathbone says Unequal is the latest example of the agency's unique focus.
"We're all about Tomorrow Brands, and Unequal is going to make tomorrow better and safer for athletes around the world," said Rathbone. "We look forward to creatively sharing their story."
Venture capital firm OE Partners brokered the agency relationship, is funding the campaign launch and will remain engaged as part of the marketing team. "Our model is different," said OE Capital Partners CEO Patrick Howard. "We bring more than money to the table, and 3Headed Monster is a critical strategic ally that will help create tremendous value for the brand."
