SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 23, 2015) -  The San Diego Chargers have awarded full-service digital agency, Piston, creative responsibilities following a competitive review. This is the first major news from Piston since announcing its acquisition by LEWIS PR.

The creative campaign will touch all aspects of the Chargers organization -- from broadcast to ticketing materials. The fully integrated campaign from Piston will kick off over the next few months; during football pre-season.

"We met a number of talented agencies but Piston brought unique ideas and style to the table that stood out above the rest," noted Nicoletta Ruhl, Director of Digital Media for the San Diego Chargers. "Their concepts for our campaign told a story about our team's history; a soulful story rooted in honesty and passion. That, coupled with their dynamic imagery, connected with us in a way that we feel will evoke an emotional connection with our fans."

A charter member of the American Football League since 1960, The San Diego Chargers have the distinction of being the only NFL team based in Southern California.

Like the Chargers, Piston is based in San Diego and has a presence that extends well beyond the market. Selected as iMedia Connection's 2014 Small Agency of the Year, Piston's innovative work for clients such as, Intuit and Yakult is recognized throughout the industry.

"We are pumped to be working with our hometown's iconic brand, the San Diego Chargers. And we eagerly anticipate the kick off of the pre-season and regular season," said John Hartman, president of Piston, a LEWIS PR company.

Specific details of the Chargers 2015/2016 campaign and the overall relationship terms are not being disclosed.
