Describe the challenges and key objectives
With a reduced and very aesthetic imagery, we focus on high quality in gardening.
Describe the brief from the client
Spreading the word about Fiskars’ gardening tools as the solution for individuals when it’s all about quality in gardening.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
Each ad shows a word made of parts of plants, saying something very negative, horrific - only that with Fiskars it is trimmed down to a few letters - the way it should be.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The ad has been aimed to shift the perception of the brand and reach a new target: women. Since Fiskars offers a broad
range of products, there is no proven effect in sales. In the same period we ran a TV ad, for another product (axe), where we
also have no hard facts, neither in sales nor in terms of brand awareness. All we can state is that Fiskars and their retailers feel that all measures have moved the brand forward.
The Design & Branding titled GARDEN LETTERS was done by Heye Group advertising agency for product: Gardening Tools (brand: FISKARS BRANDS) in Germany. It was released in the Sep 2009.
