Cadillac ATS vs. the World

For the first time in years, Cadillac was launching an entrant into the lucrative compact luxury car segment — the Cadillac ATS. The ATS would help disrupt and reinvent all the Cadillac stereotypes.

Costa Rica’s Million Dollar Gift of Happiness

Tourism advertising is a $504 million industry; Costa Rica's share of voice was just 0.3 percent of that amount.

Driven by consumer insight and validated by an international study, we leveraged Costa Rica's position as the happiest country on Earth to export happiness to North Americans.

The Most Interesting Man in the World

The challenge: to transform a no-name Mexican beer into a distinctive premium brand.

Mi Tide

To re-establish Latinas' emotional bond to Tide, the brand had to reduce their ignorance towards Tide's line of products and increase the value of these in their mind.

The Great American Try-On

Depend wasn't resonating with boomers and was losing share to Private Label. The category hadn't experienced true innovation in years. Depend was finally bringing breakthrough products to market, but at a 50 percent price premium, consumers didn't believe it was "like real underwear." That was until they tried it first-hand. Thus, "The Great American Try On" was born.

In-Hotel Credit Card Acquisition

Less than half of one percent of Priority Club ® Select Visa® (the loyalty program’s credit card of the InterContinental Hotels Group) cardholders are acquired every year from the in-hotel channel.

Mezamashii Run Project

Mizuno had just seven percent brand favorability, a running shoe that felt hard and stiff on the sales floor and one percent of the industry's ad spend to work with. But they knew that runners would prefer Mizuno shoes if they could just TRY them instead of merely TRY THEM ON. When a word-of-mouth campaign called The Mezamashii Run Project put shoes on running feet, both favorability and store sales increased.

The Next Big Thing is Already Here

In 2011, Samsung had a great product but a brand problem. No one saw the Samsung Galaxy II as an industry-leading innovator.

Smith & Wollensky "Name Change"

Steakhouse goers are a unique bunch — once they reach a certain age they pick one and settle down, rarely deviating from their establishment of choice. In order to accelerate this behavior, Smith & Wollensky rewarded patrons who were willing to take a pledge of allegiance to the restaurant with the utmost piece of flattery: they took on their name.
