The world may change, but the joyful pandemonium of childhood remains a constant. Being no strangers to that joy ourselves, D/C was excited to be tapped to work on a brand refresh for Stride Rite. The new work includes brand repositioning, a refreshed brand identity system and integrated marketing campaign, and new brand photography produced in collaboration with Cynthia Perez. It encourages parents both to embrace the chaos and to come prepared.
“We’re thrilled to help reintroduce a brand that has been a category leader for nearly a century,” said our chief creative officer and partner, Michael Lemme. “Frankly, this is what we love and do best, and we look forward to building on the great heritage of Stride Rite to engage a whole new generation of moms and dads.”
