Local is big here.
Austin is an independent city. Local businesses are revered and drive the spirit and personality of the city. Spurred on by our city’s love of local, the City of Austin called for proposals to develop a creative initiative that championed the local businesses to visitors of the Violet Crown city. lookthinkmake proposed ATXLoves, a website and campaign that aggregates locally-created lists of Austin hometown favorites from major publications and community leaders alike. We were awarded the grant, administered by Visit Austin, and worked with our community to make ATXLoves come to life.
