VIRGIN CLOTHING LAUNCH



In order to allow the launch of Virgin Clothing to stand out in such a

competitive and cluttered market, Saatchi & Saatchi worked hard to avoid

traditional fashion advertising, which research told it was ’samey,

aloof and detached from reality’. Instead, the agency played on fashion

’leaders’ belief that they’d seen it all before by repeating a genuine

double page spread in style glossies such as Dazed and Confused,

Attitude, Scene and i-D. By phasing the campaign across carefully

selected magazines it effectively managed to get the brand’s message

across to fashion ’followers’ without sacrificing the valuable loyalty

of the market’s ’leaders’.





PEPSI MAX



Max Mania, the UK’s first ever free extreme sports festival, was created

to bolster Pepsi Max’s claim on extreme sports. Promoted in both

specialist titles such as Dig Surfer’s Path and FHM the event and

brand’s attitude was communicated to both extreme sport insiders and the

broader Max audience.
