They’re muddy and messy and totally adorable. But for nearly a century, this photo-centric campaign argues, one brand has been there to both celebrate their childhoods and help everyone make it through. Paradox has never been so pretty.
The venerable Stride Rite brand is fundamentally about parents enjoying their kids and coping. So the glorious, sometimes muddy messes your child gets into are, in the new brand identity, accompanied by uncluttered layouts and clean type, often in a clean bounding box. Like the parents, that type is thoroughly modern, and, for a sans-serif, carries a great deal of warmth. And the photography is joyously colorful and candid.
Tobacco flavors that seem fun and vaping devices that look like tech gadgets have led teens, and even parents, to underestimate the damage of nicotine. Most people know it’s addictive. But addiction is only the beginning. Nicotine is a neurotoxin whose changes to the teen brain could be permanent. And that’s what our campaign sets out to communicate.

Check out our Be Both launch work designed to speak to Gen Z’s embrace of duality and fluid identity. Are we excited to work on SweeTARTS? Are we excited to eat free SweeTARTS? We’re both.
