Maus-ey Press Kit

metamaus press kitIt’s a misconception about PR that an electronic press kit (EPK) needs to be pages and pages or elaborately designed.

Here’s a sample of an EPK we just did for a tech client needing Vancouver and Toronto exposure And it was all done on a small budget and inhouse.

Backgrounder:  Art Spiegelman is the author behind the Pulitzer winning, cult-classic graphic novel: Maus. For 25 years he’s answered the same questions: why mice, why a cartoon, why the Holocaust. Marking the 25th Anniversary he’s written METAMAUS: a Look Inside a Modern Classic, Maus. It has all his answers not just in book form, but also with an interactive DVD our client (8 Leaf Digital Productions) made for Random House/Pantheon.

Nira Arora and Kid Carson talked about it on the Beat 94.5FM, and then it was featured on Nira’s “Hot List” on Urban Rush (check out how Nira and Fiona made Jay a bit uncomfortable talking about tampons).
