Patch Sponsorship

Helping the Milwaukee Bucks connect to brands and build strong sponsor partnerships

The Milwaukee Bucks needed a big splash idea to help them start conversations with several large brands about sponsorship opportunities. They needed a way to connect with these brands to build relationships. In order to break the ice we designed 20 custom bucks boxes and branded 20 different shoes with well know sneakers artist, None Above.

They needed a way to connect with these brands to build relationships. In order to break the ice we designed 20 custom bucks boxes and branded 20 different shoes with well know sneakers artist, None Above. We designed a hand made presentation box and 20 custom designed Nike Freak1 shoes. Because of our efforts, Motorola ended up signing one a multi-year patch partnership that will bring the iconic Motorola “batwing” logo to the front left shoulder of all Bucks jerseys, that began with the 2021 NBA Playoffs and their championship season.

Premium Box Presentation

The fully custom wood box was delivered to CMO's around the world via courier. Each box included a video player that autoplayed a custom movie when the drawer is pulled out and light hits a sensor. The interior lid opens up to reveal a screen printed, transparent plexiglass letter from The Bucks president, Peter Feigin. Under the letter is a custom branded Freak1 and a patch sewn on to a Bucks Jersey.

In-Person delivery package.

We created an alt version of the presentation that was more appropriate for in-person meeting experience. The contents were similar sans the video component.

Shoe Designs

Each potential sponsor received a custom designed Nike Freak1 shoe. In all we created 20 custom designed shoes. In the end, Motorola signed a multi-year partnership that will bring the iconic Motorola “batwing” logo to the front left shoulder of all Bucks jerseys, beginning with the 2021 NBA Playoffs.
