Sports

Our award-winning sports team has the strategic and creative mindset to help you reach your off-the-field goals. We have partnered with professional teams, collegiate athletic departments, sports-based non-profits, apparel companies, equipment manufacturers and corporate sponsors.

Jackson Spalding is not a sports firm. We’re a full-service marketing communications agency that understands that sports and their brands are owned by the people. We’re more interested in the fans in the bleachers than we are in the players on the field. We reach these fans and other audiences through our deep experience in sports marketing and by employing our wide-ranging marketing capabilities.

Atlanta Braves

Our team partnered with the Atlanta Braves to draft a comprehensive marketing, public relations and community engagement strategy to bring the innovative 63-acre SunTrust Park/The Battery Atlanta to life. The first-of-its-kind project includes a professional sporting venue and 1.5 million square-feet of commercial space. From naming the development to helping thousands of fans navigate to the ballpark, the team at Jackson Spalding was there before, during and after the first pitch was thrown.

Nike

How do you distill a football team’s identity into one simple mark? That’s exactly what Nike asked us to do for several collegiate and professional organizations. For the NFL, the soul of each city inspired our work, and for the NCAA, it was the schools. Our solution was a contemporary icon for each classic team. Together, these marks capture their singular stories while maintaining harmony with the identity of each team.
