We love our city. And during our travels, we often act as unofficial ambassadors for Des Moines, telling people who don’t pronounce it correctly about its unexpected muchness.
Now, thanks to Ben Handfelt, Director of Creative and Communications for Catch Des Moines, the local convention and visitors bureau, we have a neat little phrase to kick off future ambassadorial convos: The S’s are silent, but our city is buzzing.
Working alongside Handfelt and his team and talented actor, Scott Siepker, we produced three videos that show what the buzz about Des Moines is all about.
These videos, which showcase the city’s food and drink, arts and culture, and things to do, are the crown jewels of the wildly successful “The S’s are Silent” campaign.
