Production company Hayden5 recently teamed up with Phenomenal, a female-driven media brand and creative agency dedicated to underrepresented communities, to create and finance “Own Your Crown” — a PSA celebrating National CROWN Day on July 3rd.

The Colorado Wildlife Council has partnered with local artist AJ Davis to educate Coloradans on the benefits of wildlife management and conservation. Through the interactive augmented reality mural, the Council hopes to engage viewers with Colorado wildlife information and facts. The mural is located at 1114 Acoma Street in Denver.

The mural features two animals, the elk and cutthroat trout. Colorado is home to three subspecies of native cutthroat: the Rio Grande, the Colorado River and the renowned Greenback — which was designated Colorado’s state fish in 1996. Elk are a significant part of the Colorado landscape, where we boast the largest elk population in the world thanks to successful conservation, monitoring and research.

 

To view the AR mural, use the camera on your phone to scan the below QR code to activate the experience. When activated, you can watch the animals come to life on your phone or … Read more
