background

Located about 90 miles west of San Antonio, the City of Uvalde is surrounded by hill country, history and nature that makes it a fantastic destination for explorers. The Uvalde Convention and Visitors Bureau serves as a central hub for events, conventions, activities and lodging in the city and surrounding areas.

Robot Creative has worked with the Uvalde CVB for over a decade. Originally contracted to assist with their first website, the relationship has continued to include advertising design, brochures, maps and stationery. ROBOT has also helped with event sponsorship packaging and event advertising.

ROBOT used an existing logo and designed a stationery package to help carry the brand through to the CVB’s correspondence and business cards.

website

The current version of the website is the second generation created by ROBOT for the Uvalde CVB. ROBOT worked with the client to build an updated website in WordPress that would use improvements in technology to better highlight the city’s many attractions, while making the administration of the site easier for the staff.

The custom designed WordPress site uses stunning local photography to visually communicate the diverse offerings of the area, and ties in elements of the city’s branding from past maps, advertising and other collateral.
