About the Wellstone Memorial & Historic Site

VantagePoint Marketing - Paul Wellstone Memorial SceneryNear this site in October of 2002, a plane carrying United States Senator Paul Wellstone crashed en route to the Eveleth airport. As the 20th anniversary of the crash approaches, we were asked to create a website for the Memorial Site to pay tribute to Paul Wellstone, his career, remember those who were lost along with him in the crash, and show website visitors this beautiful site, which has been kept largely undisturbed. We were honored to create this website, and are proud of the finished product. 

Website Design

For this website, we started from scratch. We created a simple logo for the website, based on Paul Wellstone’s logo during his political career. The website includes history about the memorial site, Paul Wellsone, and those who were lost in the crash, as well as acknowledgements and directions to the site. It was important for us to maintain a serious tone, and to not over-complicate the website. Visitors of the website will be able to see the natural beauty of the memorial site and understand the impact Paul Wellstone had.

Virtual Walkthrough VantagePoint Marketing - Wellstone Memorial Virtual Walkthrough Screenshot

The biggest component of this website is a Virtual Walkthrough of the memorial site. This is a feature we’ve never had the opportunity to add to a website and working with the Matterport team made it extremely easy. Visitors can take a virtual walk through the memorial site, read the plaques, and get an idea of what the memorial is like in real life. This is a great feature for people who are unable to physically visit the memorial site.

We are very proud of the work we put into this website build and are grateful to those who are involved with the memorial site for giving us this opportunity. Be sure to check out the Paul Wellstone Memorial & Historic Site website, and don’t forget to take a virtual walk through the memorial site.

There are many ways this sound could be used, but most commonly it’s being used for videos about memories. The sound says, “I remember it all too well”, which is from Taylor Swift’s song, All Too Well. Many users have been using this audio to recall a negative or sad memory.

Push Pop – will.lqvr

This sound goes with a pretty simple “dance” that you can do with a partner. One partner lifts up the other, the other will run in the air to the beat of the sound. Give it a try!

Before & After –

This is a super easy trend to follow. The sound says “before …. after” and then there’s applause. This can be used to show the before and after of anything you can think of!

We’re back for another week of top trending sounds on TikTok and Instagram Reels. Keep reading to see what’s changed on these platforms since last week’s post. 


Original Sound – Classic Sitcoms

This one’s for all the New Girl lovers out there! This audio is of Schmidt saying “I’m not being over dramatic when I say I’d rather sit naked on a hot grill, than wear something off the rack”. Use this sound to describe something you cannot live without, so much so that you’d rather sit on naked on a hot grill than go without it. 

Accidentally in Love –

This audio has tons of creative opportunities, as there is no distinct trend associated with it. It’s a sped up version of the Counting Crows song, “Accidentally in Love”. Try using this audio to show off something you love. We’d love to see what you interpret out of this sound!

This audio is a super catchy remix of the classic song, “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers. This sound is super versatile. We’ve seen creators use this audio for “day in the life” videos, cooking videos, OOTD videos, and more. The options are endless with this sound! 

Original Audio – chloehayward_

This is another sound with tons of potential. Many creators are using this sound to show off their outfits or collections, but it can be used for so much more. Try it yourself, and see what you can come up with!

We hope this has been helpful in planning your Instagram and TikTok content for this week! We’ll be back next week for another post in this series. 

VantagePoint Marketing - Abiding Savior Logo with Sky Background

We recently wrapped up a project for the Abiding Savior Lutheran Church of Elk River, MN.

The project included a logo refresh and a new website design. We had a great time putting these together for Abiding Savior, and wanted to show off what we’ve done for them. 

Abiding Savior Lutheran ChurchVantagePoint Marketing - Abiding Savior Lutheran Church Exterior

Abiding Savior Lutheran Church is located in Elk River, Minnesota. They came to us wanting an updated logo and website that gives users a feel for what ASLC is all about. They came in with an idea of what they wanted on their website, and we were happy to turn their vision into a reality. 

Logo Design

VantagePoint Marketing - Abiding Savior Updated Logo

Updated Logo

We started off by refreshing their existing logo. As with any Logo Design project, there was a bit of back and forth, but we ultimately decided on the logo you see on the left of this paragraph. We kept the cross icon the same from their original logo, to keep the overall branding consistent, but updated the fonts to be more modernized. Both our team and theirs were very pleased with the final product. We created several versions of the logo so that it can be used for various marketing materials, as well as a brand card, explaining how each logo should be used and suggestions for each. Once the logo was approved, it was time to get working on the website.

Website Design 

While the website was a pretty straightforward build, the ASLC team did want to include a few unique pieces including a Church Library accessible to the public and a Bible Verse LookUp too. On the website, you can find information about the church, pastoral services, and educational classes they offer. We believe we were able to capture their vision, and make it a functional site full of resources for their congregation. 

We had a great time putting this website together for Abiding Savior Lutheran Church, and are extremely happy with the end result. We look forward to continuing our professional relationship with the ASLC team. Be sure to check out the Abiding Savior Lutheran Church website to see what we came up with for them!

Each week, we’ll post an updated blog going through the top three trending sounds on each platform of the week, and how they are being used. Follow along to go viral! 


Run Boy Run – Woodkid

If you’ve been scrolling through your For You Page recently, you have definitely heard this audio. This sound is most commonly used by asking a friend what they think describes you, and listing the things in the video using images. This trend is easy to follow, as little to no filming is involved in the creation of the video! 

What on earth is going on in the house of commons – itsZKRMVantagePoint Marketing - Girl in red shirt with confused expression

This sound has made many creators go viral recently. There are many ways to use this sound, most commonly by filming something that is confusing, surprising, or dramatic. It’s basically a way to comment on a situation and say “what is going on?” through a TikTok! 

Original Sound – tiaynna

For this trend, the portion of the song that is used has the lyrics, “how can I explain myself?” Use this audio to describe a situation in which you’ve been caught in the act, and need to figure out a way to get out of it. I’m sure we’ve all had moments where we think to ourselves, “how do I explain myself?”, so use that moment to go viral!  

Instagram Reels

If you like to dance, then this one’s for you! Creators will learn the choreography to this sound and record themselves dancing to it. Even Lizzo herself did this dance for a TikTok! Be careful though, this upbeat song will probably get stuck in your head while learning the dance. 

Obsessed with this –

This audio is a voiceover of somebody saying, “listen, if being obsessed with this is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.” We all have those super niche, random obsessions, so take to Instagram Reels to show off yours! 

Run Boy Run – Woodkid

This is the same sound that we covered earlier in this article. Of course, it has made its way to Instagram Reels, because this trend is just so fun! Use this sound as an opportunity to show off what describes you and what makes you unique.
