Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to create a connection between two very different worlds: the world of logistics and the world of fashion.
Describe the brief from the client
DHL is the official logistics partner of Fashion Week worldwide. They provide the logistics know-how and technical support and also come up with new logistics ideas for this creative business. Here, our task was to create an international campaign that emphasises DHL’s competence in the fashion industry. The campaign runs in the world’s fashion capitals like New York, London, Milan, Berlin and Singapore.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
In cooperation with Michael Michalsky – one of Germany's most famous designers – we created a special haute couture collection: dresses exclusively made of original DHL packaging materials. Bringing to life our motto: 'DHL – the perfect fit for the fashion world'. An elaborate fashion shoot with our dresses provided the motifs for our print material, such as posters, invitation cards, a calendar etc., and the online campaign. At the DHL stand at Fashion Week the unique dresses were displayed on dummies and worn by hostesses.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The dresses created lots of attention and generated contacts with new business partners.
The Design & Branding titled HAUTE COUTURE BY DHL was done by Jung Von Matt Germany advertising agency for product: DHL (brand: DHL) in Germany. It was released in the Jan 2010.
