American Express was launching a new product called "AXCESS." It was designed to help small business owners, by offering a product that would allow them to have easy access to funds with low-interest rates.

The new brand was intended to work across print and digital platforms.

Their goal was to target the Hispanic community by leveraging the successful performance that quarterback Mark Sanchez was having with its team while promoting Verizon FiOS as the fastest internet and cable service to watch each game during NFL season. We developed a full campaign targeting Hispanic communities in NY and NJ areas during game days.

As a result, the service had high rate conversion among Hispanics.
