SAN ANTONIO, March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- San Antonio-based BradfordLawton announces it has been named Taco Cabana's creative agency of record after an extensive review involving multiple local, Dallas and Austin-based agencies. The agency landed the win with pitch creative that will also be used for Taco Cabana's 2011 campaign.

"We were impressed with BradfordLawton's work and their exceptional ability to fully absorb our brand strategy and then reflect it with innovative creative, consistently applied across all communication channels, expediting the creative and strategic process," said Taco Cabana CMO Todd Coerver. "Their team is unique in that they are cross-trained in both strategic planning and creative development, providing for a very fluid and efficient process, from concept to execution. It's that nimble and balanced approach that we believe will strengthen our agility as a regional chain."

BradfordLawton will work alongside Coerver and the marketing team as a partner for all branding efforts, including account planning; in-store, out of home, broadcast and digital media creative; promotions and local store marketing development; and print, broadcast and digital production.

BradfordLawton, an award-winning marketing agency concentrating on corporate strategy, image architecture and advertising was founded by industry veterans Bradford Lawton and president/partner Tony Diamond, whose career started as an art director at The Richards Group and culminated as CMO of a publicly traded company prior to starting his own agency. BradfordLawton works with local, regional, national and international clients who rely on their ability to balance great creative with clear strategy and strong ROI.

"It's not enough to create a clever campaign without solid strategy or vice versa. You have to understand both disciplines and efficiently deliver spot-on solutions so you meet the client's business objectives while also maintaining creative integrity," said Lawton. "Taco Cabana represents what we seek in our work - the opportunity to partner with one of the smartest brand guys out there who innately understands the role of creative and strategy."

The campaign is set to break in late June throughout all major Texas markets.
