Derus for Parks
I have been excited about working on my first political campaign. Especially one that is more all-inclusive.
My brother-in-law, Mike Derus, is running at-large for commissioner of Minneapolis Parks and Recreation. And I was thrilled to be able to be a part of his campaign in building his brand.
Elections are November 7th, 2017—if you're in Minneapolis, be sure to rank Mike Derus #1. If you're unfamiliar, find out more about rank voting here: Ranked-choice Voting
I wanted to take a bit of time and show some process that underwent in developing the Derus for Parks campaign.
Mike comes from a legacy. His father is John Derus, former Hennepin County Board Chair, serving on the board for 17 years and has had a hand in a number of prominent developments in Minneapolis. Mike wanted to follow in his father's legacy, but still stand on his own ground in making developments and improvements in Minneapolis parks. Mike's voice of reason, knowledge and passionate viewpoints and love for the city's parks sets him a part from other candidates in the running.
As far as his brand, we wanted something bold, ownable, parks-relatable and a new refreshing perspective in a sea of political designs.
Wanted to bring a small nod to the campaign Mike's dad ran in the 70s and have some small influences in Mike's 2017 parks campaign.

If you live in Minneapolis, or surrounding areas, I am sure we have all—if not daily—enjoyed our beautiful parks. Let's help to keep them a part of our high quality of life. And remember:
RANK MIKE DERUS #1 / MPLS PARK BOARD COMMISSIONER AT LARGE ON NOVEMBER 7TH, 2017!
