Arkwright launches awareness posters for High and Mighty

Arkwright, the agency set up by the former HHCL & Partners

creatives Jim Bolton and Chas Bayfield, has created two characters

called Chunky and Stretch for a poster and direct mail campaign for the

outsized men's clothing chain High and Mighty.

The posters show the two friends poking fun at each others' size. In

one, the two are shown running along a country lane. The copy says,

"Looking good Chunky, looking good", with the shorter of the two men

replying, "likewise Stretch, likewise". The strapline is: "High and

Mighty. Small clothes we do not do."

The campaign launches on 26 November and comes as the chain seeks to

raise its awareness among consumers on the high street. Bolton said: "We

wanted to make High and Mighty look like a regular high-street store,

not a freak shop."

The spots were created by Bayfield and Bolton, who recently won the

account in conjunction with Cartwright Advertising, which was set up in

September by the former marketer David Atter.

The photographer was Mark Guthrie and the typography and design was by

Dave Jenner. Media planning and buying is by Cartwright.

The chain previously handled all advertising in-house, but changed its

strategy after the appointment of Gary Coleman to the post of senior

marketing and business development manager in April.
