ORLANDO – To build off the Orlando Magic’s commitment to the Central Florida community and its fans the team has unveiled, “Magic Above All.” This new brand campaign turns the page on the next chapter in Orlando Magic history. As the team and the Magic brand continue to grow, this evolution speaks to the Magic’s continued mantra of teamwork, that together – the fans, players, coaches, staff and ownership – are greater than the sum of its parts. Magic Above All is about a shared passion between players and fans, to above all stick together, united as a team.
“The Orlando Magic’s mission is to be world champions both on and off the court. Magic Above All really reflects our philosophy and how our ownership, team, coaches, and staff work towards accomplishing that mission,” said Magic CEO Alex Martins. “This new campaign builds on the tradition and legacy of our franchise and signifies that only through the collective efforts of our city, fans, players, coaches, and staff, continued success is possible. Above all, we look forward to continuing to create our history together.”
Magic Above All speaks to what the Magic organization works towards each day. Above all, never giving up, striving to make a difference both on and off the court. Above all, coming together, in the community and in the arena. Above all, for fans to be passionate and always believe. Above all – city, family, team, community. The new campaign updates the Magic’s message and reaffirms the franchise’s unwavering pursuit to success and what it means to achieve that success together as a team. Hallmarks of the campaign are the themes of unity, comradery, loyalty and team.
“Magic Above All is really about teamwork and represents a strong message that we wanted to provide to our fans, employees and all of our partners,” said Magic Vice President of Marketing Lisa Cotter. “It’s designed to reinforce our commitment to being a team that makes everyone proud and our commitment to our city. We want them to know they are part of our Magic family as we all work together to build this team and compete for a championship while creating memories and experiences we all cherish.”
A team of Magic staff members worked with local marketing agency, Maven Creative, to create the new slogan which was designed to remind fans and partners that the Magic are a cornerstone of this community, a lifestyle, a rallying point. The Magic officially unveiled the new marketing campaign to the Central Florida market on August 1.
In addition, “Magic Above All” will be seen in a variety of other areas including the team’s social media platforms, the team website – orlandomagic.com, through corporate partners, social media, digital vehicles, collateral pieces, grassroots efforts, billboards and on the side of the GEICO Garage bridge connecting to Amway Center (see photo link at top).
