Sharing Arizona's Beauty & Culture with The World

Tempest is thrilled to start working on the Arizona Office of Tourism's brand new website design.

Arizona Office of Tourism

Creative Brief

What an honor for Tempest to begin work on a brand new website for the Arizona Office of Tourism (AOT). The Tempest leadership team has deep roots in the Grand Canyon State, and we could not be more excited to help the AOT reimagine its web presence. 

Did you know that Arizona is the sixth largest state in the U.S. by square mileage! For this extensive creative brief, Gregg, Mike, and I planned an epic road trip that included: 

  • 7 days
  • 39 attractions
  • 1,191 miles on the odometer
  • 4 National Parks and Monuments (there are 24 total statewide)
  • 1 psychic reading (when in Sedona . . .)

We took so many photos along the way that it was hard to choose, but here are some of our top travel highlights below. We look forward to continuing with this project and helping the Arizona Office of Tourism share Arizona's beauty and culture with the world!
