CINCINNATI (April 17, 2009) –Northlich announced today that it has been selected as the lead agency of record for the Ohio Lottery Commission’s (OLC) advertising and creative assignments. Northlich, a brand engagement agency with 60 years of experience operating in Ohio has offices in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland.

The two-year contract commencing July 1, 2009, includes promoting and driving sales of the OLC’s instant and on-line games, as well as brand development and integrated marketing to increase awareness of the OLC’s core mission, which is to help educate the children of Ohio through its games.
