the challenge

The Iowa Finance Authority makes life better for Iowans. It’s that simple. The problem? Four years ago, most people had no idea about the organization’s statewide programs – or their impact.

Educational Campaign:

Looking at the Big Picture

The Iowa Finance Authority offers a big range of services – so big, it can be difficult to see the whole picture. We took things down a size. With our “Big Picture: Iowa” campaign, our team represented the organization’s programs and partners as a typical Iowa community. Users can visit our town, navigate its friendly, animated streets, and learn how Iowa Finance Authority’s programs have rippled throughout their county, district and state.
