With the national mid-term elections fast approaching, state government election officials at every level are scrambling to assess their system’s vulnerabilities to hacking or other interference, with the goal of protecting those systems from all threats. Akamai partnered with Bluetext to develop a compelling outreach campaign to educate state decision makers on the solutions that Akamai can bring to their election systems.

Bluetext created a three-part creative approach that leveraged engaging images and headlines to drive awareness of Akamai’s solutions. These include a patriotic message of responsibility these election officials have for protecting democracy, as well as the use of the iconic “I Voted” stickers revised to read, “I thought I voted” as an emotional appeal to what’s at stake. The result was a campaign that cut through the noise and delivered the Akamai story to the target audience.
