GOODYEAR® AVIATION: TECHNOLOGY ADVANCEMENTS
Strengthened the brand perception by focusing on a position of technology innovation leadership. Specific advancements, such as Kevlar® brand fiber reinforcement, thicker tread, and antioxidant polymer compounds dramatized that position in a targeted print ad campaign and aviation show trade booth.
GOJO®/PURELL®: EARTH-FRIENDLY INNOVATION
The company’s legacy of sustainable practices and Earth-friendly innovation helped launch the world’s first Green Certified hand sanitizer. A dimensional press kit, interactive sustainability report, regional PR events, plus online and print advertising expressed this leadership with friendliness and humility and without a hint of greenwashing.
PURELL®: ADVANCED HAND SANITIZER
As inventors of the category, the PURELL® brand stands for skin health that promotes overall well-being. Launching their Advanced line — which kills more germs while protecting skin — extended this mission in a meaningful way, supported by a website and digital advertising, public relations, and the first of annual hand hygiene summits.
REPUBLIC STEEL®: STEEL REPUBLIC STEEL
As part of a rebranding initiative and a commitment to positioning the company around special bar quality steel, Republic Steel assumed a stance of leadership that repositioned all others as inferior “wannabes.” The provocative and irreverent campaign consisted of print, outdoor, newsletter, website, and public relations that led to and extended beyond Republic’s 125th anniversary.
PROPERTY & CASUALTY PROGRAM: KNOWING THE CHURCH COMMUNITY
This insurance division of GuideStone Financial Resources, a leader in investments and retirement plans specifically for churches and their staff, were positioned as the only P&C that knows the church community. A whimsical and fresh print and direct marketing campaign “spoke their language” and featured a series of safety tips to underscore the subject matter.
RTI INTERNATIONAL METALS: ADVANCING TITANIUM
This leader in advanced processes, in particular adding value to titanium, were positioned with the theme “Advancing Titanium™.” Collateral, advertising, public relations, publications, government presentations, and industry trade events helped underscore RTI’s superiority for the most advanced applications.
