Here’s What Our Clients Have to Say
“Versa developed a new outreach and education campaign for our department, and from Day One, we were very impressed with the priority and attention they gave us. We had a very tight deadline, and Versa’s team did an incredible job responding to our feedback and turning around quality products in a very short time span. We were so happy with their work, and I would recommend them to anyone looking to develop or design graphics, ads, or related material.”
– Sarah Robinson, Houston Public Works
“It’s hard to think of them as an outside agency. Sometimes we think of them as an extension of the communications department within the Harris County Department of Education.”
– Danielle Clark, Chief Communications Operator at the Harris County Department of Education
“Our company has been working with Versa for 3 years now for creative and advertising services. We come back to them again and again because of their amazing customer service and cost-effectiveness.

Protect Our Pipes Government Marketing Campaign
One of the main goals of this government marketing plan was to create brand equity and maintain consistency in brand messaging across various marketing channels. Overall, we needed to be engaging and dynamic to nurture emotional connections with Houston Public Works’ target audience, as well as increase audience interaction and loyalty to the organization.
Versa Creative provided multiple traditional and digital marketing assets for this Houston Public Works marketing campaign. Our traditional media assets alone garnered over 3,129,800 unique impressions!
Versa Creative hosted a development and strategy session that provided crucial information about Houston Public Works’ current standing in the community as well as a game plan to implement new branding material in a way that felt evolved, engaging, and supportive. We illustrated and created each character from scratch to better tell this story. Next, our team created a digital and traditional media marketing campaign that introduced new content that captivated the audience through the art of storytelling and strong brand positioning.
Some of our traditional media assets included billboards, radio scripts, YouTube videos, display ads, posters, and more. We also created templates that the client could use for future use as they introduce new programs and initiatives. Versa Creative also designed templated digital questionnaires that could be used to get feedback from the community or potential sponsors.

Give Water a Break Government Marketing Campaign
The City of Houston Public Works Department is a government agency responsible for planning, operating, and maintaining public infrastructure, including the city’s streets and drainage, production and distribution of water, collection and treatment of wastewater, and more. With over 671 miles in their jurisdiction and 2.3 million people served, Houston Public Works represents one of our broadest target audiences to date.
The Versa Creative team conceived, produced, and executed a government marketing campaign in both Spanish and English for the City of Houston’s Public Works Department in anticipation of a stage-one drought occurring over the summer of 2022. This campaign included YouTube bumper ads, social media content, radio spots, and Hulu commercials, in addition to assets for general water conservation and winter advisories.
Versa’s water conservation campaign began with agency-wide brainstorming sessions about potential taglines and campaign strategies before landing on “Give Water a Break.” The team’s previous work with the Department on their “Protect our Pipes” campaign gave us unique insight and a steady springboard to launch campaign assets from. Initial assets for the campaign included social media ads incorporating satirical imagery and taglines depicting wasteful water usage.
The Department sought to develop water conservation content for use beyond the drought. The Versa team created a series of general water conservation advisory videos, radio scripts, and traditional media assets, such as tri-folds and brochures, for distribution within the government and amongst Houston businesses. These assets were developed in English and Spanish to account for the campaign’s diverse target audience.

Now, the District’s pioneering companies are leading energy’s evolution and Houston’s quest to become the Energy Transition Capital of the World. Versa Creative worked with the Energy Corridor District to lead and roll out their major rebrand. This included refining their brand voice and tone, core messaging, and messaging matrix, launching a marketing campaign strategy with suggested platforms and unique brand tones for each channel and audience, creating the budget allocation for the campaign, and producing creative assets and campaigns for traditional and digital advertising.
The Versa Creative team created a three-pronged messaging and brand tone matrix to address the three separate audiences of the District: the community, cultural, and corporate populations seeking the District as a potential new home. The tone matrix further involved differentiating between messages from the official Energy Corridor District and the perceived community of the Energy Corridor beyond its designated boundaries.
The campaign focused on the Energy Corridor District’s desirability for innovators, mid-sized corporations, and small business owners, in addition to its dedication to its constituents.
