Compass Marketing Creative was contacted by Douglas County’s Rideshare Manager to create a marketing kiosk to educate the community on the Rideshare program. This project involved getting to know the Rideshare program and spotlight it in a website-like kiosk which is sitting in the Douglasville Douglas County Courthouse. We also did some marketing consultation work for the County as they prepare to expand their transportation services within the county. We also handled brochure design for two of their divisions, vanpool and senior/disabled persons voucher program.
