Dairy Queen

“Miracle Treat Day”

The Mill teamed up with Barkley and Dairy Queen to create this piece for DQ’s 13th Miracle Treat Day. The annual promotion aims to raise funds and awareness for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by donating $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat. 

We set out in pursuit of capturing the magic of a child’s imagination. All kids dream up grand adventures and want to run wild with their friends. With that mind, we portrayed our three heroes hopping from one adventure to another – roaring like lions in the jungle, flying planes and climbing mountains.
