The Story

For the 2019-20 season, the Rockets turned to Slate in order to bring their “One Mission” brand campaign to life across social media. They filled their Slate account with custom branded graphics, filters, fonts, and animations. This allowed the Rockets social team the flexibility to create on-brand content, on-the-fly, without having to rely on extra design resources or waste time sending content back and forth.

Leveraging Slate was so efficient for the Rockets, they used it to create over 95% of all IG Stories content, and more than 50% of all the posts across social media during the season.

They also leveraged Slate’s efficiency and creative possibilities to service their valuable corporate sponsors every game with branded filters, frames, and stickers.

Slate helped the Rockets level-up their social content, increase sponsor activations, and send their “One Mission” brand campaign to the moon.

Slate has been a game changer in terms of workflow and the speed with which we can customize our social media posts across platforms.
