Malloy to Boost ‘Still Revolutionary’ Tourism Campaign

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today announced that he will launch a summer-long effort to highlight the role Connecticut’s hospitality, tourism, and recreation sites play in strengthening the state’s overall economy.

He said he will tour state tourist spots following last month’s unveiling of the state’s new ‘Still Revolutionary’ marketing campaign,

He is counting on the new initiative to boost revenues and draw attention to the state’s “distinctive attractions and extraordinary destinations” through an aggressive marketing campaign, his office said.

Connecticut’s hospitality and tourism industry employs more than 110,000 people, generates $1.15 billion in state and local tax revenue and is responsible for $11.5 billion in spending, according to 2011 statistics.

Connecticut Still Revolutionary, But No Minute Man?

By James Lomuscio

WestportNow.com Image
The Mystic Aquarium is featured in one ad. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

One print ad shows a young girl cheek-to-cheek with a whale at the Mystic Aquarium. The caption “When was your last mystical experience?” It is followed by a slogan “Connecticut: still revolutionary” and an invitation to go to CTvisit.com.

Another print ad depicts a happy couple near the New London lighthouse. It states, “Let our history rekindle yours,” followed by the same “Connecticut: still revolutionary” slogan.

The catchphrase—the Nutmeg State’s answer to “I Love New York”—is the brainchild of Westporter Tony Kobylinski’s New York City ad firm Chowder, Inc. His firm won the the creative bid for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s $22 million state marketing campaign to promote tourism and Connecticut as the place to do business. (See WestportNow Jan. 25, 2012)

Kobylinski, an art director, said the slogan was created by his company’s co-creative director, writer Jim Ritterhoff. Part of their challenge was to educate people who know little about Connecticut including, according to their focus groups, that it has a coastline.
